    I'm really looking forward to it, i'm still to get some tickets for next thurday though.

    Anyway, i really like the book(s) and i think that PJ did a really good job, although there are some reason to criticise the cinematic realization, but still if regarded as a movie, solely it's definitely a superb aprroach imo

    Yeh.. can't wait to see the third part. I bought the first one extended edition when I was in london, and ordered the second one from play.com when I got home. Me mate slept outside of the world's biggest THX-cinema, which's a 15 minute walk from my flat, and got tickets for him and his gf.

    He and I'll be watching the first two parts before he goes to see the premiere.

    I prefer the extended versions. I mean, come on! The Two Towers was HORRIBLE in the cinema edition. Just awful.. But the extended version was actually enjoyable! Amazing.

    But I'm not so pathetic that I sleep outside cinemas, or rave about New Zeeland or Jackson like I had something to do with the films, oh no: I just download and watch whenever I feel like it. There's nothing about The Lord of the Rings that make me turn into a dribbling super nerd, ready to be scammed out of his pants by toy and t-shirt vendors.

    i read the hobbit when i was about 10, (-wow nearly 8 years ago heh) and i did try and get thru the books but stopped half way thru the fellowship, im lazy - i couldnt see the point if i can get the jist from the film, the books are too much hard work, well written but unexciting unless you concentrate....reading 1984 - now theres book that grips me

    nope not at all, provided you are reading something that grips you, like if you put a book of sport infront of me, itd probably knock me out faster than a joint after an 8 hour shift at work, now if you chuck something intensely emotional my way then i'll be reading it nonstop
