The LOTR Movie Site

I'm with Merka

Has anyone EVER seen a movie that was EXACTLY like the book it was based on? and the key word here is "Based". This movie seems as if it will be a wonderful adventure, and whoever is going to be sitting at the theatre with their LOTR books, checking each line for something missed is going to be GREATLY let down. Think about the long descriptions of the terrain and it's details. If the movie spends half the time looking at trees and mountains that the books spends on detailing them, we'd all fall asleep within 30 minutes. Just take it as it is. It looks to be a truly great experience.
