yes it is, and i's on now
Ten minute voiceover introduction. I'm out.
when i saw it the first time it had a really powerful effect on me. amazing amazing film.
It's not perfect (stop fading to black at the end of ROTK, argh!) but I think it would have been very hard for them to have done any better with it.
I can't pick a favourite film though, it's one film just split into three essentially.
but i agree that i can't see how it could be any better than it is, and it is brilliant
there's a few ropey bits in Moria and Fangorn but otherwise it's a lot better done than many films.
Like a sucker I have the extended edition DVD boxset, which is fantastic.
and once my boyfriends has finished watching 'The Cube' (sad times) i will force him to change the channel.
Cube the shit programme on ITV on Saturdays
but i'll assume it's not a patch on the movie
without trying to fit Sean Bean as Ned Stark. Which is exactly why I'm going to watch it. But later, because like 80% of the population, I have the DVDs...
but seriously, FUCK YOU OP, I've been sat here since 8, and me with places to be by 10 :(
It's a series that's as good as it can be, given the source material.
The Godfather and Jaws are average books made into amazing films, so it's hardly impossible to do
'It's a series that's as good as it can be, given the source material' which implies that you think average souce material can only yield an average film.
