just saw it, i gotta say it was pretty damn good and fairly true to the book (read it yourself, read it twice).
Music was great and story left out only what seemed was kinda pointless anyways.
Effects and settings where F* Great. I think i'll find a cozy hole in NZ to retire to.
Couple things i didn't like.
-Spoilers, sorta -
To much fighting. Seems like they really capitalized on the on the fact that the movie could contain gratuitus (SP) violence. so every fight must? its an adventure not a war(Braveheart) movie. Unfortunately that is what sells movies.
Intro. the history of the ring bit at the beggining was much alike to the one that was done for the cartoon version back in the '70s. Actually i think they even duplicated some shoots. Also i don't think they really need that bit, why dont they introduce the history as Frodo discovers it.
All the sections they created to explain Saruman. Having read the book i think they could have been done without, but i suppose they serve a point.
Seeing the Sauron and the eye. It looks damn cool but he was never really represented in the book with any form, and i think that that added to the fear.
Borimirs Horn. Wussy horn noise. In pretty sure it was never described as "TooT, TooT"
All the same certainly a great movie and i will be seeing it again.

I was so ****ed off when if ended and I realized that I have to wait 2 more years for the end of this sucker. I'll be wearing a stupid looking grin around for a good while after that one. As soon as my butt recovers from it's numbness, I'm going back for another dose.
Actually you only got to wait 1 more year. Then 1 year after that for the third movie. All the shooting for the movies is done, they just have to do the post production work. However they both both scedueled to come out this time of the year for the next 2 years.
I loved the movie, and can't wait for the next one to come out.
I saw this last monday.
That was one hell of a show,
but it seemed to drag on for a while.
A few things I didn't like was that the 2 humans where hard to keep track of who was who, and the elf was queer.
