Bored of the Rings

This film kept my interest longer than the other two, but it was still the same cut and paste formuula of individual struggle followed by EPIC battle, followed by a display of humanities resolve. One thing that annoyed me more than anything else about this entire trilogy is that Peter Jackson, as a director, hasn't seemed to bring much to the forefront in terms of imagination, individuality or ingenuity.

I honestly feel that you could give the average joe on the street the lord of the rings book trilogy, a gazillion pound budget and the right cast and crew and he'd come up with something exactly the same as this. PJ is a director who should be making the films special and memorable in his own style, I think he's just transformed book to film and then rubbed his hands and watched the money roll in. Granted he produced some epic battles and has given the trilogy some grand scope, but then again with a hundred men and the right budget, so could anybody.

I didn't even think the music was anything special. It just goes to show that the second and third films only have a higher rating because of the huge battle scenes in them. The rest of the story is as mundane as it gets on the big screen. What was the deal with the ending of this film too? It had about 5 perfect places to stop in a row. But carried on. I've never understood the fanatacism that follows the trilogy.

so true. I noticed (and began quite annoyed) with the multiple endings while i was in the theater. Nearly stood up and walked out about 4 or 5 times. yet it kept going. and going. and going. they dropped the ring in the fire. then they came to castle. then they came to elven town. then they came back home. then he gold old. then he wrote a book. then it finally ended...

even the battle overall was very cheezy and unimaginative. what felt like 2+ hrs of getting their arse kicked, and they're about to lose, when the ghost army comes in, and end music starts playing... so i guess ghost army is untouchable, the end? oh wait, still 6 more endings to go.

With the right budget, so could anybody...

James Cameron? No.
Michael Bay? Hell no.
Kevin Costner? Umm, no.

I must've missed their interpretations of The Lord of the Rings.

I believe their versions are called The Abass, Transfarters and WateredDown respectively.
