i read the books several times. loved them. I loved the fellowship of thering movie and i loved the two towers as well. both were amazing. yes although they changed much with Faramir but the ending between Faramir and Frod and Sam was the same and led into whatthe book had done. I agree with Linds in that you have to accept the movies as movies and the books as books. if you can separate the two and not compare them you will find that the movies are awesome. the only gripe i had was that Celeborn died, i could not believe that but someone dies in every movie that upsets peole. but i loved the movie anyhow. Jackson is a genius. and is the extended DVD version of the fellowship of the ring really that much greater. i guess I'll have to get it.
