    He forgot one: It was completely BORING! I could not sit through it, I had to get up and read for awhile because the movie was putting me to sleep.

    40L,

    I couldn't agree more. I was dying for LOTR to be over. It was too much like a book, and not enough like a movie. Almost as bad as Harry Potter, which I had to get up in the middle of and walk around the lobby for 10 minutes to restore brain function.

    I've decided that if someone is TOTALLY true to the book when making a movie, the movie will SUCK!!!

    The 50 reasons were tongue-in-cheek and funny.

    I don't know what is wrong with the other two of you. I have to seriously doubt the judgment and taste of anyone who doesn't like LOTR: FOTR. It was great!

    Now, the Harry Potter movie sucked.

    Everyone is entitled to his opinion.

    So, what movies do you like?

    Too many to list but some of my favorites would be:

    The Sting
    Tremors
    All the Clint Eastwood Spaghetti Westerns
    Grumpy Old Men
    Most DeNiro films
    James Bond

    In short, most action films, comedys and suspense/thrillers.

    There really aren't a lot I don't like or at least can't sit through but LOTR just didn't do it for me.

    You're right, Steve, it is complex. It takes a certain level of intelligence to fully appreciate it. ;)

    Yes, that would be a very low level.

    Racism.

    Percentage of protagonists in Fellowship who are white: 100. Meanwhile the black antagonists and their black crow spies and their black glass seeing ball inhabit their black towers and perform black magic. Gosh, I wonder if there's some symbolism there?


    Gosh, I wonder if you're an idiot?

    Hey, but at leats the 5 world's biggest casinos advertise there. that has to mean something, right?

    What? Wolfman not understanding that the guy that wrote the list isn't actually reading this thread? (The "idiot" comment... ;Q )
