Yeah but its definitely fellowship
@Rudolph Schmidt , are you trying to start a civil war here?
Also no it's ROTK.
@Swift Justice, false it's Two Towers.
@Swift Justice, For me two towers and rotk deviate from the books far too much. Fellowship is right on. I just love when all the fellowship are together and I love boromir.
@Rudolph Schmidt , that's where me and a lot of others have a difference of opinion. My thing is that deviation from the books is not a disrespect to the original literature at all, and is to be expected. In fact, copying the books verbatim narratively would be disrespectful, and yet a lot of fandoms want exactly that. Now on the other edge of the sword, to outline deviation from source material in films as a negative thing is very disrespectful to the art of cinematography itself as a whole, because all the sudden, we're treating film adaptation as if its not an art in and of itself within the greater sphere of the modern cinema, which it clearly is. There are plenty of examples of bad film adaptations that differ from their source materials in a bad way, and honestly, you have to be able to tell the difference between examples like LOTR and, say, The Last Airbender, which was an abomination. LOTR is adaptation done right, and the deviations from the source material are done in a
@Rudolph Schmidt , narratively exceptional fashion, so that's why I don't think that the deviations from the book are things that would detract from ROTK and TTT's quality in comparison with FOTR. That being said, ROTK is probably the best, most grand ending to a saga that film has ever seen. That's why it's my favorite.
@Swift Justice, Yeah but the deviations I'm talking about ruin the lore and take away from the movie. With slight changes those movies would be near perfect. Example: the worst scene in lotr is in rotk when the witch king fůcks up Gandalf and destroys his staff. In the book their confrontation is much better. And the witch king isnt even close to being on gandalfs level. It makes no sense. Faramir in the books doesnt kidnap frodo and sam and lets them go on their way displaying that not all men are so easily corrupted by the ring which was a really important idea in the book. I think fellowship is the best of the books as well it's the most poetic.
@Rudolph Schmidt , I do agree with you that fellowship was the best book. Lol most of Two Towers had a lot of scenes that were just filler. Like those pages worth of Legolas, Aragorn and Gimli just running miles on end? That was like... K we get it. Massive fan of all 3 books but like I agree that Fellowship was just fresh and well written even moreso than the other two
@Swift Justice, I just finished Star Wars prequels and now I'm reading RotK as "Revenge of the Kith" and I want that to exist.
@Empshok, it's a Mike Tyson romance novel lol
Guys, its obvious that the best movie is the entirety of the Hobbit
@Guy Fawkes, then something happened that the comment section did not intend...
@Dangerous Dan Spivey, come and witness. witness what i have created
I’m with all of you, the fellowship is the best
No such thing
Why isn’t the animated one up here?
There's only one return, and it ain't of the king, it's of the Jedi.
