The day before yesterday, I saw The Return of The King, and I have to admit I share Tim Bray’s opinion. I definitely think it was the weakest of the three, and I really can’t see any obvious explanation for changing the original story — especially since it doesn’t benefit action-wise. While Tolkien’s Frodo is a noble, admirable, real hero, Jackson’s is a total loser. I also had to remember that a friend of mine told me some time ago that Gollum has about 200 different facial expressions, which sadly, is about 198 more than Elijah Wood. Anyway, all three parts taken together are definitely a great achievement, and of course there was no way I could have not watched it.
