#27: Watch LOTR Trilogy

First of all, why did I put this under “Expand Knowledge”?  Sigh.

So, I watched all 3 movies in the Lord of the Rings series this week.  I have to say that the first movie was much better than the book for me.   The second movie was better than the first movie.  The third movie had lots and lots of battles, so it kept my interest enough.

Overall, I’m very underwhelmed.  Why didn’t I love this series???  Every other person on the planet loves it.  I’m not a rebel – I love Harry Potter and Twilight.  So, why couldn’t I get into this? Maybe my brain just rejects Middle Earth.

The movies were SO LONG.  So very, very long.  So much walking.  So much fighting.  So many ugly creatures.  So many people falling off cliffs and not dying.  Over 9 hours of my life I can’t get back.

I don’t think I will ever have the desire to watch one of these movies ever again.  My husband watched #2 & #3 with me, and his commentary did help make things better.

I’m checking this one off with enthusiasm.
