I will confess i have only read the books through once but i adore the films to the point that i have watched all three extended versions and most of the special features upon said dvds (im a freak i know) and i can probably tell you a large variety of random trivia from when they were filming the movies plus i can recite quite a few of the lines along with the characters - much to the annoyance of whoever im watching the films with
I've only read the books through once as well, i haven't finished the Return of the King yet, been distracted by moving house and then other new shiny books.
I've also got all three on extended edition and love watching the extras, especially The Two Towers ones (White light, White light) and i also recite lines and give out random bits of trivia...especially that the guy playing Gimli was allergic to the prosthetics...love doing it. When watching the second and third movie, i always skip the Sam and Frodo parts, because they are so boring, i know that they are the main bits of the film, but i can't help it, i want to see more of Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli. The best Elf was the one played by Craig Parker...Haldir, love him!
My favourite movie is the Two Towers, but it's been a long time since i read any of the books, so i will have to dig them out when we finally get around to bringing my books back, so i don't have a favourite book.
Has anyone else played the LoTR online game? (I know, i'm a big dork)
