Loved the movie, absolutely loved it! I haven't read the books (yet!), but I had no trouble entering into the universe created in the movie. Absolutely amazing! When Frodo was stabbed the first time, I almost fell out of my chair. And Viggo Mortensen - finally a Danish(ish) person to be proud of .

Some of the CGI work was a bit crap, though. Especially when Legolas was being whirled around by the troll. But overall one of the best films I've ever seen.

My dad and I went a bit LotR crazy after having seen the movie. We even watched Forever Young on video just to see Elijah Wood in real hobbit-size!

I will definitely be reading the LotR books next... after I finish the Hornblower series. Oh, and Narnia. NP, still almost a year to go.

My name is a bit like Boromir and Faramir. I wonder what it all means...

I just saw it last night and I have to say that it was excellent! I did think that it should be renamed 101 Ways to Kill Frodo though! At any rate, I'll be reading the books...well maybe after my next semester at university is over anyway...lol.

I was pretty happy to see, too, that this movie didn't have any cheese factor! Usually fantasy just turns into one big cheesy film clip! Yay for that!

And as for my favorite characters...little blue eyed Hobbits and long blonde haired elves are my new favorite people. Yummy!

Yeah, poor Frodo. Everyone is out to get him! And in the face of all that, doesn't he show a good amount of courage? I mean, he gets left this ring and doesn't ASK for the adventure, but takes it on anyways.

Btw, Klodomir...aren't you in the next movie?

And was anyone else totally freaked out when Bilbo had his Gollum moment?

Great movie...I may have to go for 3 times.

I'm campaigning for that as we speak. Can I count on your support? I could be the Wicked Bitch of Mordor or something.

Amen to that...no "Jar Jar factor" in this film!

1) Galadriel didn't come across as warm like in the book. She was super freaky.

2) They didn't play up on Frodo's sense of adventure and wanderlust. Of all the characters, I'm disappointed with Frodo. He wasn't interesting at all. He also wasn't hairy enough hehe.

3) I am very VERY disturbed by Bilbo's sudden frightening expression when he tried to snatch the ring from Frodo. That scene was too exaggerated... Other than that, the part of Bilbo was played well. I especially liked how he embraced Gandalf after Gandalf scolded him into giving up the ring.

4) The fight between the two wizards was more comical than exciting. It came across as 2 old fogies tumbling around.

5) In my mind, Strider was never young... I thought of him as pretty aged, maybe in his 50s.

Those are my only nitpicks... I love the movie!

I just loved it!
I saw it 2 times and I'm planning to seeing today again!

I just can't get enough of Elijah. I totally fell for him. (I even have him on my wallpaper. I have betrayed Bono)
