And besides, I don't know if I prefer Return Of The King or Two Towers. I'm not sure if I like Bourne Supremacy or Ultimatum more. They're all fucking brilliant!

Hah, yeah, but it's a cheap way out.

You could just be like me and not love any of the LOTR movies.

LOTR is not my level of nerddom, therefore I cannot relate. I also can't help but fall asleep every time I try to watch one of them... the theatrical cuts, too.

Also, I've never seen a shittier use of CG in a "major film" than the Ghost Army in Return of the King. Dear God.

Do you dislike the LOTR films, or, simply think Jackson is a poor director and the films are meh.

Elaborate.

I believe it's all the same thing. Jackson's a terribly weak director (though a technical visionary) and the film's suffer from amateur direction and lousy storytelling.

I have to admit that I haven't watched as many classic movies as I'd like to have. That is why you see many dumb fun movies in there like Animal House, Dumb & Dumber and Bill & Ted which I also enjoy. But now that I have a Netflix subscription I'm in the process of educating myself even more on the classics. Ready to be viewed and sitting on my coffee table is Shawshank Redemption. In queue: Dr. Strangelove.

Hey, it's no big, this is about Favorite Movies, not Greatest Movies, you know? There will be some overlap, but don't expect me to put Schindler's List as something that I'd watch more than maybe 2-3 times in my lifetime. More power to you for having it on your list though.

Strangelove gets better each time I see it.

I can understand how someone would take issue with Jackson's direction. I do too, at times. And with some of the actors in the film. But I fail to see how one could accuse the films of having bad storytelling. That's kind of...insane.

I mean, if you're not into fantasy than it's not going to be your type of thing. Understandable. But stories don't get much better (I'm not talking about Tolkien's actual writing style, which is a bit too dry for my taste), and I think they told it better than most other filmmakers would have. What fantasy films DO have good storytelling? Willow? Narnia? The Golden Compass? You see how much worse it gets?

Fight Club would have to be in my top 50. Easily.

I think the LOTR trilogy is a hell of a lot of fun. Especially Fellowship.
