Lord of the Rings trilogy one of the 100 films of all time to see before you die.

That can be taken more than one way... []

Be good dear Sarah, remember that this is the moviephile thread, so it can only be taken one way.

My wife & I planned an extended edition DVD 'Trilogy' watching to reminisce our Trilogy Tuesday experience at the theatre in Decenber 2003.

Got to the merry mellow boat-ride down the Anduin before the wife went to sleep. I managed to finish Fellowship. The movies are pretty empty after the fact, but were fun while it was happening!

Watched "Sagan om de bannlysta" yesterday, it is 45 minutes of footage from FotR with Swedish voices added - and it is a complete and utter silly parody. (Link here though you'd have to understand Swedish)

Anyhow, watching it reminded me about the visuals of the films. Excellent work. []

I'd like to invite Movie-philes to see my Purist-edit and ask if you think it lost anything by moving it closer to the book.

Note that it's in 9 parts and will move to the next at the end of each.

This must have been a labor of love, considering the amount of work necessary to accomplish this. I've seen only the first few installments, but it is mice not to see something contrary to the books. I feel as if I can relax and watch without waiting for the next difference to appear.

To give due credit, I should mention that this is my edit of Sharey's Purist Edit. I'm still working on their version of The Two Towers, it should be up soon.

Ok, thinking about something in the movies that might be better than in the books [] Takes some thinking I know. But what about the line by Wormtongue which was originally said by Gandalf in the houses of healing about Eowyn I do think that having Wormtongue say it does add a little bit of menance!

He doesn't drive her to martyrdom in the film, however.

For the Fellowship Purist edit:

Step 1. Sign into youtube as "CitizenOfMinasTirith"
password "JRRToklien"

Step 2. Click this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FsuQUfkUaLg&list=PLB453B60C5FBBF422

That will play the Fellowship purist-edit so you can see it.

I will say it was good that these early 21st Century movies were all made at the same time. They look pretty good in comparison to the Hobbit movie. It really shows that these early movies could have been a LOT worse.
