Parent: What Movies Should Everyone See at Least Once?

    The Lord of the Rings Trilogy

    Assisted by a Fellowship of heroes, Frodo Baggins plunges into a perilous trek to take the mystical One Ring to Mount Doom so that it and its magical powers can be destroyed and never possessed by evil Lord Sauron.

    Now, you need to watch the trilogy at least once. And, chances are you, you already have. And, this may go against the rules of this thread, but the first part alone won't do you much at all. You have to watch the entire trilogy if you actually want to get into LOTR. And, a good thing is to also watch them in extended cuts.

    @DarkChaplain It took 3 days, but it was worth it. I was completely thrilled throughout the entire 12 hours it took to finish the movies, never a moment of boredom. I'd say that a trilogy this long yet this well-made kind of deserves a watch at least once.

    But yeah, credits for you to getting me to watch them lol.

    I kind of disagree with this in that it's not really a movie that everybody can enjoy. Not everyone is into this sort of geeky fantasy movie genre. I personally loved the LotR movies, but I know a couple of people who didn't really think the trilogy, as well as the Hobbit movies as anything to get very excited about.

    This movie is terrible for those who are not into magic-politics, because there is a lot of it. It's like a story within a story within another story.

    Of course there are always going to be people who dislike a good movie. Either because they can't comprehend it, follow the plot, or can't sink into the setting. This doesn't make the movie a bad movie.
    It did well drawing people in who weren't seen as a typical audience for this sort of movie; from jocks to people in show choir. I know quite a few people who I wouldn't classify as geeks that became fans of the LotR movies. Most of them being family members or friends.
    Point being I don't think that a few people not enjoying the movies means that they shouldn't be watched or that they don't deserve to be watched at least once. They are quite long so I guess if you can't stand sitting still that long you might not like them, but for the most part they do well in appealing to a wide audience.

    This has gone on long enough. I'll be cataloguing, flagging and removing all unconstructive/non-thread-related posts here. Most of the first page shouldn't be filled with subpost nonsense, and I'd be a fool to not step in at this point, considering this is my thread.

    Subposts here are locked.
