gelsachindrajust out of curiosity why do you think two towers is better?

Well, I just enjoyed it more than ROTK. I liked the battle for Helm's Deep much more than the war at Minas Tirith--we saw more of the main characters doing actual fighting, and I felt that the whole 'undead army' thing was...well, not really a cheat, but it seemed that the victory was pulled out of their butts at the last second...seemed much easier than the Helm's Deep battle, which they really had to work hard for, IMO. Plus, I thought Gollum was an excellent character and they showed more of him in the second movie :p

I think 'the fellowship of the ring' was nice, but it was just to get the whole picture about the storie, you know getting familliar with the caracters and so. But i liked return of the king the most because the battle was just awsome, 'the two towers' was about equally good as 'return of the king' but the fight at Minas Tirith was just way more spectacular with those olifants and not to mention the numbers. So to make a conclusion:-return of the king -the two towers -The fellowship of the ring (just not a great battle in it)

As stated above a few times, nothing compares to the books.

As for the movies, I have all of the extended edition DVDs and would highly recommend them to any LOTR fan. Each movie is 30-45 min longer and include storylines that were left out of the theatre versions. The extra features (6 discs) are great, and the original artwork included in the packaging is a nice touch.

I love them all, but I suppose my list would be: 1. The Two Towers 2. Fellowship of the Ring 3. Return of the King

I hated the Return of the King, everyone said it was 'the best', and it was way overhyped. Those ghosts just made disappointed me, they just flew across the battlefield and killed all, which was lame and ruined everything. I liked 'The Two Towers' the best, because of the epic battle at Helms Deep, but it was pretty much a re-run of that in RotK, and the reason I liked the battle was because there wasn't a gigantic battle in FotR. Though, I like the Lord of the Rings movies, I still think they are overhyped, and the books are better than the movies.

It just was SO LAME, though. That massive battle ended in such a pathetic way, it totally ruined everything. It was meaningless to watch the battle from the beginning when it had such a stupid ending. and it wasn't described as 'and then the ghosts came and flew through all the orcs and won.' :p

Heh, I can see it now...

Sauron: The Forces of Good are quite powerful... Sauroman: How so, my master? How can they overpower us?! Sauron: They...haax

Yes, it was a strange ending, but there was atlesat a bit of fighting between the army and the city for awhile.
