I noticed over at the IMDB site that people had voted the new LotR movie to the number one slot in the list of greatest movies ever. As of this week some time it's slipped back to number 2
. What do the folks here think - does it really rate up the with classics like The Godfather
, and better than Schindler's List, Star Wars, Rear Window, Saving Private Ryan
and suchlike? Sure I enjoyed the movie, but I wouldn't rate it in my list of greatest movies of all time. And I'm a New Zealander, so I should be biased
Maybe it's because I didn't think the book translated that well to the big screen, even given a 3-hour movie. I am looking forward to the DVD with an extra 30-40 minutes of material - it should flesh out the second half of the movie better.
