Return of the King (2003)
29. Watch 50 movies from IMDB’s top 250 (11/50) (more info)
TNT had a LoTR marathon on Sunday! Although I watched parts of all three, I only watched all of the 3rd in the trilogy, The Return of the King (2003). I love all the movies and am very much so looking forward to them making The Hobbit :)
The Return of the King is the only LoTR book I’ve read out of the series. After seeing the second movie I had to know what happened next. Overall, the movies follow the books pretty closely. I was, however, disappointed in the the change with the end of the last movie. In the book the hobbits return to the Shire, but not all is well. Evil has invaded their home and they must take it back. This is very important because it shows the growth of the hobbits and how able they are to defend themselves and their home. Perhaps in the movie they thought there had already been enough fighting, I’m not sure.
The movies have been out for a very long time so odds are most of you have already seen them, but if you haven’t you should :)
