I've read the books and seen the movie. They are not the same because they're not the same media. You must remember the movie is not a book and can't be compared to the book as you are seeing some one elses interpetation of the book, even if J.R. Tolkien had written the screen play, directed, produced and edited the movie himself it would still be different then the book. It's like comparing apples and oranges. As a movie it's a fantastic movie, the cinematography is great, and although the movie is a bit long it's a long story that is being compressed into a 3 hour time frame. There are few movies that can compare to the LOTR trilogy.
