The third part of Peter Jackson's monumental Lord Of The Rings trilogy fully lives up to its predecessors. This is the crowning glory -- a cinematic feat that satisfies at every level.

The one thing I abhor above all else: my favorite books or movies ending. :( Speaking of endings, how many does this movie have, anyway? Moving on, I love this movie for several reasons.
1) The acting is almost perfect.
2) The battles are really awesome, and they're true to the book.
3) Gollum. (New favorite LOTR character - for *certain* reasons :)
4) The ending itself is true to the book.
5) Legolas kills a giant oliphaunt.
6) It's one of the most powerful stories ever.
7) IT'S LORD OF THE RINGS, PEOPLE!!!
That's my take on it, at least. To sum it up, I love this movie. (And you should, too!)

BEST ONE!! :)

I could go on and on about how much I love this trilogy. I will try to narrow it down. Casting, score, cinematography, direction, use of practical special effects, costuming, set design... Too many wonderful things.

Gollum: Wake up sleepies!!

smaugthestupendous Sep 15, 2013

Aragorn: Hold your ground, hold your ground! Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you *stand, Men of the West!*

Frodo: It's over. It's done.

Sam (killing an orc): That's for Mr. Frodo! (He kills another one.) That's for the Shire! (He kills a third)...and that's for my old Gaffer!

Frodo (speaking to Gollum): I have to destroy the ring...I have to destroy the ring for both our sakes.

Galadriel; And to you, Frodo Baggins, I give you the Light of Earendil, our most beloved Star. May it be a light to you in dark places when all other lights go out.
Frodo; Aiya Earendil Elenion Ancalima!

Sam; Frodo!
