Two Towers is a great film.
Makes me wonder why trilogies are the industry standard for series, when part three often seems to end up being a bit unsatisfying. I'm not dismissing Return of the King so much here, but generally the concluding parts of trilogies (whether they were originally conceived as such or not) are less compelling than the second films.

The Lord of the Rings: Episode IV: The Fellowship of the Ring was my favorite of the original trilogy, and remains my favorite overall to this day. Haven't been out to see Episode II: The Desolation of Smaug yet, but from what I hear I don't think Fellowship is in danger of being toppled as the favorite.

The Two Towers has been on my top ten greatest films of all time list since I saw it. The rest were great films as well, but Two Towers has always set itself apart to me. It's the "Empire Strikes Back" of the LOTR films.

I haven't seen Smaug yet but I spot-on agree with the rest.

The options in this poll are stupid. Why didn't they just put the 5 movies for us to choose from? Why is there like 5 additional options?

Because then people would complain that there wasn't enough options, or at least the one specific option that suits their opinion. So clearly, whoever creates these polls can't please everyone.

Desolation of Smaug > LOTR

Saw " The desolation of smaug" in Imax yesterday and loved it. It had everything I hoped for LOTR but didn't get. Good pacing, awesome action and effects, amazing settings.
LOTR took itself way too serious... too much staring and whining, too many ends. Wished the LOTR-Trilogy had the pacing and feel of DOS...

I preferred fellowship because all the cast were together and it was one big focused storyline. In the later 2 parts once they split up, the film was not as enjoyable to watch for me. It had lots of big battles but in Fellowship there was a sense of dread because they were really outnumbered and you didn't know who would live and who would die.

Oh and this is a bit of a stupid reason but I never read the books. I really believed that in Return of the King, Aragorn would do battle with Sauron.

Not a fan on any of the movies, really... but still, I don't get the love for Fellowship over the rest. I mean it's not even a movie - it's a TV show pilot. It's just kind of the beginning, but not even in a good way, you know? It's "hey, come back next time and we'll have something worthwile for you, maybe..." But then that's most of 'em.

See, you can critique them without just complaining about walking.

I can't decide

I love them all. Kudos to Peter Jackson for taking a pair of stories everyone called "unfilmable" and making them into the biggest saga so far of this millennium. While THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY has its flaws, it's still a more than worthwhile viewing experience.

STAR WARS, the bar has been raised. Big time.

FELLOWSHIP.

FELLOWSHIP - 8/10
2 TOWERS - 3/10
RETURN OF THE KING - 8/10
HOBBIT - 6/10

I haven't seen SMAUG yet, and I don't plan on watching the animated version.

Return of the King

I chose Return of the King. Such an epic end to end the amazing franchise with. Especially with that last battle. It maybe ran for a bit too long, but that doesn't bother me so much as it used to.

I would have Desolation of Smaug as my second favorite of the whole five films.

Fellowship: 10/10. Everything else, 5/10 or lower

So, that's how it is for me. God, The Two Towers was such a waste of my time. Then, I hoped RotK would redeem itself - it didn't.
I don't want to talk about The Hobbit. It's too painful.

Not even a debate for me

The Fellowship of the Ring is easily the closest and most faithful adaptation of the book, and more than that, it's easily the best-made movie overall. The pacing, the acting, the score, the action, the [link] here is perfect. Even if I don't care much for the ongoing Hobbit trilogy, I'll always be thankful to Peter Jackson for the movie that started it all.

"most faithful"?... Tom Bombadil?

When compared to bringing elves to Helm's Deep, butchering Denethor's character, making Faramir a completely different character and bring the Hobbits to Osgiliath, having Aragorn fall off a cliff after a completely fabricated attack by wargs, having the army of the dead show up at Minas Tirith, completely changing how the Ring falls into Mt. Doom.....I think if the only fault in Fellowship of the Ring was omitting an arguably unnecessary character that would've come across as silly and

Doom.....I think if the only fault in Fellowship of the Ring was omitting an arguably unnecessary character that would've come across as silly and ridiculous on screen, then yes. It's easily the most faithful movie out of either trilogy. By far.

TOO EARLY TO TELL

I have a feeling the last episode of The Hobbit is going to be EPIC. For now, everything Jackson/Tolkien.

LOTR vs. THE HOBBIT

The Hobbit films I would show to my young kids because it has more wonder and toony humor. I would show LOTR to them when they are older in their pewwwb phase because it is a classic tale in fantasy and coming of age.

I love the whole LOTR trilogy, but Fellowship is my favorite and got my vote. As a kid, I was aware of LOTR but never read it (saw parts of the animated Hobbit film as tv). I went into the film not know much, and was completely blown away by what I saw, and for 3 hours was transported to whole other world. Everything from the top-notch production design, beautiful cinematography, and Howard Shore's wonderful music lead me to one of the most surprising and enthralling film going experiences of

Not to mention the impressive action scenes and great acting (Boromir's death scene gets me everytime). The sequels were just as good, but I knew what to expect, so they didn't have quite the same impact that Fellowship had on me.
