I can't really choose because it is like they are all one big movie. However, I really liked the part in The Two Towers where the ents attacked isengard. I used to image how cool that would be if ents chased off loggers next time they tried to cut down old growth trees. :P

I can't really vote on this one because knowing that the movies were all shot at once, in my mind they are all one very long movie :P

That being said, Lord of the Rings is my favourite Lord of the Rings movie :roflmao:

My favorite movie was The Two Towers. The best book, however, was The Fellowship of the Ring ;)

Agreed, there's no way I can go back to the shorter editions...I can't wait till the movies come out on HD DVD or Blu Ray someday.

The extended editions!

They're all brilliant, but I think my vote must go to FotR because it has so much Boromir in it. ;) Boromir's death scene still makes me tear up after all these years.

The best battles are in the two latter movies, Helm's Deep and Pelennor Fields are obviously the two big ones, but there's also the Warg attack, the Black Gate, the Fall of Osgiliath, etc.

Boromir was the phlox. My only regret is that too few of the scenes made him look like the actual good guy he was.

Boromir was a great character. He definetly was a shades of grey kind of character, though alot of that was going on with charcaters due to the influence of the ring. His brother Feromir, was interesting too. I enjoyed the whole father-son tension in ROTK, though it ended kind of sad, and yet kind of happy.

I didn't like the end of ROTK because it did little to show that Faramir and Eowyn got together.

It's so hard to decide because they're really all the same movie but I voted for the two towers. It has the most Rohirrim (:D) and I think the scene at the end with Sam's speech might be my favourite scene in any movie ever. I find Sam interesting, he's a slow witted gardener but he's arguably the greatest hero in the whole trilogy.

And if nothing else, you still have ROTK to look forward to after TTT.

It didn't show it at all.

I am kind of surprised everyone likes Boromir so much, I won't deny that he has an appeal and he did redeem himself but I wouldn't have expected him to be so popular. Faramir is way nicer anyway. :D

I didn't particularly like Sam in the movies, but in the book he was the best hobbit. Better than Frodo, and that's saying something.

It kind of did. In the scene at Minas Tirith, before everyone kneels before the hobbits, as Aragorn and Arwen walk by, the camera switches to Faramir and Eowyn, who are standing right next to each other. They kind of give each other a glance, but you have to know what ultimately happens to get the meaning behind it.

That's because Boromir was awesome in the books. I supposed I wouldn't have liked him nearly as much if I hadn't read the Fellowship of the Ring.

I thought he was fantastic in both.

I'm a huge geek when it comes to both the movies and the books and even I didn't notice that.

I thought my mind was just playing tricks on me, but my uncle agrees. It's just a look, so it's ambiguous and open to interpretation, but I think that's what it was supposed to do.

They shared a short glance and smile and that was it, it would have been really nice if they showed more.

He's kind of like Garak in a way, you're not sure which side of the line he falls sometimes, and Garak is very popular with DS9 fans, though not the first name to come to mind when you think about the series.

I thought Fellowship told the best story, and Boromir had a big role in that one, but it didn't have the big battles of the other two, and the battles did it for me too.
