    Reading the book, right before seeing the movie, has not gone well. It just seems to make the movie, all the more disappointing. I am 0 for 2, with Starship Troopers and the original Jurassic Park. Both books were great, but the movies marginal. Jurassic Park, not so much, but ST was dismal, compared to the book.

    Back to the LotR books, I didn't think much of The Similliraion, but the rest were pretty sweet.... looking forward to the movie... I just hope it's not too stylised. from some of the previews, it's got a 'fake' kind of aura about it.. not sure if it was intentional or not, but it looks kinda strange... anyways, I guess there is only one way to find out...

    Does Anyone know if the cartoon versions of Tolkien's books that came out as movies in the late 1970's/ early 1980's are available in widescreen DVD [2.35:1] format?

    I've only seen them in 1.33:1 [4:3] format..

    Both the Hobbit (more of a kids version) and LOTR (darker version) were done in 1978. I have seen them on DVD, but not the widescreen format.

    Yes in the main it was, the Silmarillion was what he based the Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings on, as his background so to speak, but it was edited by his son Christopher after J R R Tolkien's death :D
