Lord of the Rings: Books VS Movies

Postby davefollmers » Sat Apr 21, 2018 8:52 am

Hi,

I have to wonder, which version of LotR do people prefer? The books or the movies? And why? This poll works better if you have seen and read both ;).

Personally, I prefer the movies. Yes, I know, LotR fanboys are likely to set upon me over this. But I found the books slow, plodding, and frankly too much hard work to be a good read. Too many side tracks that weren't relevant to the main story, and far too much faffing around, going on about the history of each individual sword for my liking.

The movies, by contrast, cut the crap, and mostly keep the good; they keep moving, avoided getting bogged down, and yet still managed to manufacture an expansive, impressive world on the screen.
