    I am not one to argue with those who choose to remain uninformed on a given issue. So, if you're interested in the facts concerning The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy, view any or all of the DVD extras.............especially those on the extended editions of the last two movies.

    His first hurdle was to prove that such an enormous epic could be filmed in this tiny country on the other side of the planet, but this proved to be his easiest task once [b]oversees cast and crew arrived.
    Wellington is also the home of weta workshop which created the physical special effects for LOTR
    Ok, so Cast and crew includes the primary actors + actresses, cameramen, makeup artists, sound personnel, sound effects crews, costume designers, storyboarders, editors, acting coaches, digital special effects, and set designers (with the exception of the above quote)

    I'm not saying New Zealand'ers didn't help out, I'm just saying they didn't fly into New Zealand and start hiring the crew.

    Its a pity that Jackson felt that he had to change the books- if I hear one more person go on about 'its exacty the same as the books' without ever reading the books, I will scream.

    Still, the whole LOTR thing makes me laugh- George Lucas will be spitting!

    No, its not. There are sereral things that have been changed. The fight at weathertop has diffrences, and 'seeing' Gandalf 'kill' the balrog- that is NOT in the book.

    I think thats its time to pull out the old, old copy of LoTH to be sure.

    peter jackson himself has admitted that there are major differences between the books and the films. Just watch the DVD extras, it's all there. I'm not saying the movies weren't good, I enjoyed them quite a bit in fact, the books are just better. But aren't the books always better than the movies?
