Okay, I'll have to just come out and admit it: I completely don't get the whole "Lord of the Rings" thing. Granted, I never read the books, which as I understand it is 99.9% of the overwhelming appeal of the movies.

Still, I wouldn't expect these movies to make so much money so quickly from only their devoted literary following. I mean, it's not as if these folks are taking a date to the movie, so somebody else must be jumping on the bandwagon...

I saw the first two, and I suppose I'll see this one too, since I've come this far. I don't hate them or anything. I just don't get the fuss. To me, they're all sort of like the Indiana Jones movies, only without the humor and some of the people have fake feet.
