Response to Matthew M. --
Emotionality of LOTR
Don't worry, Matthew, Peter Jackson is a consumate film maker and you won't be emotionally let down!
The trailer alone is all the evidence I need of Jackson's vision - the eerie, stirring music matches the epic proportions of the cinematography, the elegance of the sets and appropriateness of character design.
The plot modifications (Arwen's expanded role, in particular) might be a little irksome to some - but I am pretty sure Jackson is fully aware of LOTR fans' sensitivity to fiddling with the original, and that he'll blend changes into the plot very well.
Will there be any quotes that ring down the ages? [Ha ha...
pun!] Yes... dozens! Jackson has the whole saga to exploit for quotable quotes.
