I know some of you think these films are overrated, and I highly disagree with you, but if you had to pick, which film is your favorite?

I personally love "THE TWO TOWERS" more than the other two. I'm a huge fan of EPIC films, and these films define the term EPIC in my opinion.

I've only seen the first two, and FOTR is the best by far.

Easily the first.
It was best of the three.

TT was excellent in the theatre but brings little to the small screen.

ROTK was one of the most boring films I have ever seen.

TFOTR deserved the oscars ROTK got.

Fellowship by a mile. Though I still love the other two aswell. I was 100% oblivious to anything about LotR back when the first one was released, and when I saw it, it blew me away. So in a way I'm a little biased since I loved the first one so much back then that I hold some sentementality towards it. Two Towers actually dissapointed me when I first saw it. The first movie is really pretty different than the second and third when it comes to structure. Though I got used to the differences enough by the time Return came out that I loved it. I think it's the most pefect final chapter to a trilogy ever made. People complain about the "multiple endings" and I've never understood that. LotR is really just one big long 12-hour film. You want it to wrap everything up in just a few minutes? WTF?

Also, that whole thing that's become the "Randal Rant" (though I've heard people say and act out everything Randal said and did long before Clerks 2 was even filming), I say those people have no business seeing a movie like LotR. Go see a comedy starring a washed up SNL alumnus or something.

I'm the fan of the book, also I find a lots of mistakes in the movies. But FotR had a pretty feeling, and it had Sean Bean. Boromir is the best Man in this...  Cry

TTT was ok, but i HATE RotK. The only thing I loved in it is Ride of the Rohirrim, but they ruined one of my favourite character, Denethor... He was TOTALLY miscast.  Angry And where was that proud, awesome, but respectable man who he was in book?!
And in book, RotK was my favourite...

I think I should say I have a deep love for these films, since I at least had and kinda still have but I've watched them just too many times. I honestly can't watch them anymore, and IMO that is a pity. I mean, I watched the first and the second part waaaayy too many times, at least once a week over a year. These are the films that made me a filmbuff and made want to become a director. Maybe after lets say five years I can enjoy watching them again.

I voted for the first one because it works best on it's own of the three. But the third one is the only one that has made me cry every time, and I mean every ****ing time!

These films are one of the classics of their time and will remain like the original Star Wars trilogy (even if FC doesn't agree).

I like the book very much. I've read it two and half times now. I really can't read many of the fantasy novels written after LOTR because most of them are too direct copycats (I've read Terry Pratchett and Harry Potters, though).

Oh these are definitely up there with the original Star Wars Trilogy. It has everything you'd want in an EPIC Fantasy Trilogy and much, much more. I personally think these get better with each viewing.

They're all strictly 7/10 from me. This may change on repeated viewings.
