Return Of The King - just booked my tickets for the 18th December - can't go on the opening day - one of many Christmas Concerts! :evil:

Been listening to the soundtrack pretty constant for the last week - this film is going to be awesome I think - anyone else looking forward to seeing it?

Edit: Just noticed that post made me look a right geek! :? :shock:

Yep. But being a LOTR geek is cool. 8)
Due to banding/Xmas drinkies/mother-in-laws, probably won't get to see it til after Yule.
Don't tell me how it ends!

I'm definitely going with one of my best mates. Hopefully we'll be better behaved than during Two Towers - we kept making loud remarks about how sweet Gimli was - in the middle of a crowded cinema!

We are planning a couple of nights in beforehand though with wine, to watch the first two films again and catch up on everything before we see the final part - how BOCish!

Harry Potter? Oh, you mean the rip off of practically everything Enid Blyton wrote relating to magic?

Nah, Harry Potter was dull dull dull. Lord Of The Rings has so far been a superb conversion to film. I'm sure it will continue.

Just thaught I'd share a bit of info with everyone. Former school band friend of mine Rachel Gledhill plays a percussion solo on the first 'Lord of the Rings' soundtrack. Rachel was the first female player of Hammonds Sauce Works Band (now YBS).
Another case of ex Brass Band players making a name for themselves in the top orchestral world!
I'm sounding like a BOC as well (whatever that stands for?).

...is the soundtrack just as good as the others?
It sure is - though the last few tracks are much sadder than the previous two. Not having read the books, I'm guessing this gives us a clue as to what happens! ;)

Also, I've read somewhere that Howard Shore has nearly completed his 'Lord Of The Rings Symphony' which will be premiered around April 2004.

But I love LOTR too - I've always liked the book(s) and the films are fab. Aragorn......phwoarrrr!!!! :wink:

Can't wait for ROTK, just done my preparatory re-reading of the book (for about the gazzilionth time). Although Im apprehensive about the main battle scenes. I have such vivid images in my mind of them from the book and in some ways I don't want to see Peter Jackson's perception of them!

Ive also heard a rumour that the very end of the book "The Scouring of the Shire" may be missing from the film. I hope not, it's my favourite bit!!

Hope Jackson includes all the small aftermath bits from the appendix as well, but I doubt it.

If you've seen the films but not read the books, read them! Whilst the films are awesome adaptations, they pale in significance to the richness and depth of the book. Tolkien writes so convincingly of Middlearth its unbelievable. The fact that he developed a whole history of his world before writing LOTR is incomprehendable!!

Slightly disturbing too mind, just try reading the Silmarillion......

oh dear, what a boc i am

If the battle scenes are half as good as Two Towers should be brill...
