    @StardustSoldier Amazing scene thanks for sharing . Shore’s score arguably as sweeping as JW’s work.

    Here is one from my Top 3 faves

    Oh yes, that's a fantastic scene too. My mother and I watched Return of the King together a year ago, and we both got chills during that part.

    I've got all the blu-rays, I even purchased the book, but I would not label myself a fan yet, I noticed allot of people were reading the books on the subway on my way into work when the films were originally released in the theatre, so the films inspired allot of people to delve deeply into the lore.

    I will credit LOTR for getting me into the Game of Thrones, I'm a huge fan of that series and have the books too, maybe when the LOTR Amazon Prime series debuts and if its good I might delve deeper. Nevertheless, I'm a huge fantasy fan I went to school to become a fantasy book illustrator. I've got John Howe's Fantasy Art Workshop. Howe's work work for LOTR is beautiful and inspiring.

    I'm currently building models kits from the Gundam series and getting into the lore for that series. Nonetheless I can't wait for the LOTR Amazon Prime series.

    Ah, I didn't know that. Thanks for sharing. :) I'm actually pretty okay with that release date; in fact, it's a bit sooner than I was expecting. Still a lengthy wait, but it'll make for a great Christmas present. :D

    Thread bump.

    I finally replaced my Hobbit and LotR Trilogy (Extended Editions) DVDs with their Blu-ray equivalents and, to mark the occasion, I decided to embark on a Rewatch of the entire Middle-earth Saga in narrative order.

    I know that 'conventional wisdom' says that The Hobbit films aren't as good as the The Lord of the Rings films, but I have always disagreed and love both trilogies equally, and so I'm really looking forward to spending the next several nights rewatching what is one of my all-time favorite film series.

    Huge fan of LOTR. I really wish they made films out of Tolkien's old lore (The Silmarillion), but I know it all comes down to estate!

    two years ago I did a Hobbit Trilogy watch a thon.

    I should rewatch the Lord of the Rings trilogy one more time for old times sake. I think Peter Jackson did a good job at it. Cant think of anyone would even try to do the movies anyway.

    Plus sometime this year i am planning on re-reading the Silmarillion since its been like 18 years since I last read it
