    TLOTR books turned me onto reading. They changed my life.

    The movies, for me, don't do shit. Just my opinion.
    A woman won The Nobel Peace Prize? Must have been a pretty good sandwich.

    Sort of similar.. I read them first time too young.. But I cant count how many times I have reread them.. Theres a lot of depth to it even if it is swords and sorcery elves and goblins kinda stuff..

    The LoTR movies I liked, but in a different way, like seeing someones elses imagination of the same things.. It was true to the source except for the potentially confusing Bombadil cut.. These latest ones seems to add too much and be a bit too action focused..

    Still fun, just I am a bit too much of a fan of the original to forgive it the small failings..

    Yeah, he had to add crap to make it 3 movies worth of material.

    That said, I'll see it.

    I was an avid reader in my younger years, but the books never got a hold on me. I don't remember why. The movies I have seen several times.

    Same - can't remember details from the books I read as a teenager, but knew all the characters and the basic plot, so the movies played to those bits I remembered and likely made them more enjoyable (i.e. not nitpicking from specific differences to the books).
