    I went ahead with ROTK. Because it had more action and more humor.
    However, if you like a better storyline, Fellowship had the best story.
    Helm's Deep battle was amazing, but I like the Pelanoor Fields battle in ROTK just a tad more

    Don't know if it was because the first set the bar so high that I was dissapointed by the other two, but Fellowship was easily my favourite. Don't know why but the performances of Viggo Mortensen, Sean Bean and Ian McKellen just seemed better... and the Nazgul-chase aspect has always been a favourite part of the story for me.

    I never read the book, and I would say the first movie was by far the best. I felt as though I was on an adventure. No clue where I was going. And I loved the creepy creature trying to steal the ring. He was the best chracter by far. I think right up until he put the ring on for the first time I was really pulled into the story. After that, it was more or less a fantasy film, but the beginning was very well done and the theme of wanting the ring was well established, when it easily could have been botched.
