LOTR: ROTK

It took me a month this time, but yesterday I finally went to see The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. The journey has ended.

Wow! What a great movie!
The story by Tolkien is fabulous, of course, with everything he created around it: the maps, the languages (with pronounciation!), the family trees, et cetera. But Peter Jackson also did a fantastic job, directing the movies, and keeping very close to the original story (as far as I can see).


Just as a year ago, with TTT, there were a few things in the movie I couldn’t remember from the book – and I’ve read it twice!
But I got the book out, as soon as I came home… and the movie really is amazingly close to the book. And if you have the illustrated version of the book, some scenes in the movies will even look familiar!

  1. Hmm… I should really go and finally see it, too, then! In which cinema did you see it?

  3. Yes, you should!

    We went to Pathé De Kuip in Rotterdam (http://www.pathe.nl/dekuip/), with 14 screens and 8 or 9 screenings a day!
