Just joined the church of Peej, I read LoTR few years before the movie came out, and I have to confess my sin of initial sceptisms when I first heard that someone was going to make a movie of the book. I shuddered and envisaged all manner of hellish horrors, from a complete Hollywood re-write with new non Tolkien characters to the likes schwarznegger rolling up to Mordor on a motorbike with a bazooka, and blasting the eye with an asta la vista baby.
So I was totally impressed when I went to see it at the cinema, and even more impressed that they did all three parts of the story as three seperate films rather than trying to condense it (as I'm sure hollywood would have done if they had got their hands on it) into one short, action packed, romantic drama.
I was mightly impressed with Peej's work and will watch the DVD's for years to come......
