I'll probably get a lot of disagreement over this one but I actually thought the Lord of the Rings trilogy was, if not better, certainly as good as the books. And I loved the books.

Yes .. I agree.. But the Hobbit was NOT as good as I'd anticipated ....


I agree. The book "The Hobbit" was better than the film. The film expanded it to almost the length of the entire trilogy, while the original was actually only a few hundred pages long. "The Hobbit," unlike the trilogy, was basically written in the style of a children's story. but the film presented it in the same grand epic fashion as LOR.

Interestingly, I have not read any of the books mentioned above (except for the two I mentioned). I still can't think of any film which was better than the book. But three horror movies came pretty close to perfection in dramatizing the original written words: Rosemary's Baby, The Exorcist, and The Legend of Hell House.
