If you actually read the books, you would realize thats how the end, and Peter Jackson tried to make the movie as accurate as possible. Also, the dragged out endings answers all the questions viewers might have (Aragorn and Arwen, Sam and his wife, Frodo and Bilbo, the book 'There and Back Again', and the return of Aragorn to the thrown).

The movie was still kickass though, Minas Tirith battle by far was the coolest battle I've seen.

When did wizards and monsters get so ****ing popular, that movie was ****. I mean the fight scenes were alright. The biggest mistake in the whole movie was having multiple endings. Jesus christ writers make up your ****ing minds! Do you want it to end once they drop in the ring, once he finishes his book, when they sail off, OR when sam closes his cottage door. Jesus christ that was about 4 of the 50 endings they showed. The length of the movie didnt help either.

Those were the only endings, and you have no appreciation for historic literature, if you'd actually get off your nerd machine and read a book or two, you might have a good life, and you might actually gain some intelligence.

Read the book queer, thats how the book ends with all the multiple endings, like I said before, Peter Jackson wanted to make it as accurate as possible.

Oh, since I didnt read the book I am a queer, a nerd, and I have no intelligence... huh?! Since when was it that if you didn't read fantasy novels you were a nerd. Oh, and maybe they could of made those endings go a little bit smoother for example: DONT FADE OUT LIKE YOUR GOING TO THE ****ING CREDITS! THEN EVERYONE IN THE MOVIE THEATRE IS SUPRISED TO SEE MORE CLIPS. I'm the nerd?! Well all I can say is for you to have fun at dungeons and dragons camp.

Yea I'm serious. America's education systems have gone down the ****ter. Look at Crizo for example, no life, has a half porno icon, and gets his kicks out of IM'ing people at midnight telling them to kill themselves. Don't the teachers give the students homework anymore?!

The endings were like that because that's how the damn book ended, and you if you make a movie out of a book, you should keep the same focking ending.

I think you die before going to hell.

All I'm saying is that the ending may have worked in the book, but It really doesnt work in a movie, especially if after every "ending" they fade out like their going to the credits, atleast skip the fade out and go directly to the next scene...


oh and nightynite you post about 4x more than me per day... you get a life.

Yea, you thought the movie was going to end at least 3-4 times. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to beat out the rush, but it just wouldn't seem to end.

I was trying to figure out why I was there, and not doing something else.
