n. an enthusiastic fan of the Lord of the Rings movies. Overly emotional and irrational, they honestly believe that every piece of cinema that has or will be produced is inferior to the trilogy, and will often lurk in movie chatrooms making this point abundantly clear. Most have not read the books, or did not until they saw the movies. Most can be identified by the pudding stains on their shirts.
Never discuss the Academy Awards with a ringnut; you'll just give them fuel. Give me a Star Wars geek any day.

Similar to Trekkies and Star Wars geeks. All they talk about is Lord of the Rings, all day.
