    **SPOILERS**

    I thought the movie rocked!!! I have to admit...my eyes got all watery from the time they all bowed down to the hobbits until the end. I haven't read the books, so the whole plot was new to me. The acting was especially good in this one too. The battles...and the unique animals in the battles were all spectacular. Bilbo was funny at the end with his response of "pity" to Frodo's "loss" of the ring. I would love to see this movie again.

    And I have a cold.

    Mdrio, I'm glad you brought that up about bowing to the hobbits. One of several parts I teared up at.

    I also loved the friendship between Merry and Eowyn. Great stuff.
    If you go through a lot of hammers each month, I don't think it necessarily means you're a hard worker.
    It may just mean that you have a lot to learn about proper hammer maintenance.

    The entire movie was wonderful. Absolutely wonderful. Probably the best book-to-movie film I've ever seen.

    I saw it last night. No trouble getting a ticket and the theater was full but not packed. We were in the 4th or 5th row.
    Absolutely fantastic film! Very well paced with battle scenes, funny moments, sad moments. The scene near the end when Aragorn bows to the hobbits really gets you in the tear ducts but there is nothing schmaltzy about it. Outstanding performances from all of the cast. I hope the Academy gets over its thing about fantasy/sci-fi and offers recognition beyond the technical achievements, which were astonishing, by the way.

    frodo leaves for a multitude of reasons:

    1. he was a ring-bearer
    2. wound from the witch king that never healed
    3. carrying the ring damaged him emotionally so much that he never was the same again
    4. he wanted sam to be able to live a normal life without caring for him all the time

    actually if my memory serves me right, sam joins frodo later because he was also a ring-bearer albeit for a very short time (in the appendices of the book)

    Thanks, superfly for the information. So it's in the books, is it ? I still find that ending sad... With all the friendship between Frodo and Sam...
