    All I can say is : gollum. The most unbelievable cgi I've ever seen. Blows any of the Star Wars effects away...

    As far as the movie is concerned : I've only seen it once, so I really can't say for sure, but the story is VERY deep in this second installment. It is very easy to get lost with all those different names and clans and stuff. But overall it was great. I will go see it again, to make sure all has sunken in, but I've seen Fellowship at least 20 times, and new stuff comes up almost everytime I watch it.

    This Jackson guy is a superb director. Pretty much cam out of nowhere too. I hope he comtinues to make these quality types of movies in the future... But of course, there is still 3 more hours left in the tale of : The Lord of the Rings...

    Now that you saw the movies, you should read the books.

    Didn't want to read the books, because I wanted to see the movies

    When you read the Hobbit, you will get the history of exactly how Sam got the ring. And there is more details that the movie couldn't possibly cover.

    Besides, reading the books is a great way to understand the movie better.

    You mean Bilbo, right?

    Yes, she meant Bilbo. Then Bilbo passed to Frodo, and then Sam had it for a short while. Then Frodo got it back from Sam.

    I read the books a long time ago. I enjoyed the first movie, planning to see the second this weekend. I think the director did a great job go far.

    Well, so far, Sam hasn't had possesion of the ring yet. But I can see that happening probably in the next movie. Or book rather

    Yes Jackson has done a very good job - he somehow managed to coordinate the direction of all three movies at once, through a setup of several monitors and walkie-talkies, switching between movies and scenes every few minutes.

    saw it a second time last night. its still great. it was alot easier to follow too. i kept getting mixed up with the hobbits (frodo/sam & pippin/merry) the first time. Treebeard and the Ents discussion is still a funny part to me.

    Who here read the book(s) first? I read the second one just before I went to see the movie, and was quite disappointed at the amount of material they left out... oh well maybe in the 3rd movie

    I read the four books a long time ago. The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, The Two Towers and the Return of the King.
