Oooo...oooo...I don't know...I'm torn there...the books are my favorites, but the movies are some of the best films ever committed to celluloid...it's a tough call for me, I can't decide.

Nah I think you're maybe right Gabe. Tolkien had a great imagination, for sure. However I think he spent far too many pages describing the scenery. They do become a chore to read at times IMO.

They are still great books but I think the movies solve the pacing problem that was evident in the books. Plus they are also pretty faithful to the source material.

I'm illiterate and don't read. Therefore, the movies win by default Wink

Damn, I guess I have to work harder on my blasphemous statements. I don't think the books are bad, I think the story just needed some tweaking, like Star Wars, I like it alot, but can't help but wonder how much better it would be if someone else was in charge.
