An overrated trilogy in both book and movie form. It is an extremely boring trilogy that has been made into 3 hour movies that drag on and are impossible to watch.
Only the huge nerds can sit through a Lord of the Rings movie. For a normal person, it's impossible.
Nerd: "Hey, have you seen the Lord of the Rings?"
Normal Guy: "I tried to. I couldn't watch more than an hour."
Nerd: "OMG ARE YOU SERIOUS?!?!? IT'S SO AMAZING OMG YOU'RE SO STUPID!!! BEST MOVIES EVER!
Normal Guy: "Nice nerdgasm dude. Peace."
