Wow. Just wow. I just finished seeing Return of the King and I can safely say that it is not only the best Lord of the Rings film, it is also the best fantasy film ever made and one of the best movies ever made. The Lord of the Rings is a wonderful trilogy and Return of the King provided a fitting end to the series. As a matter of fact, I don't think 100% is enough for this movie. Probably something in the 500's would be more appropriate. This has replaced X-Men as my favourite film series …

   The only thing bad I can say about this movie is that I didn't want it to end! Just as good as the first two (I wonder why this was the only one to win Best Picture). If you are unfamiliar with the books then some of the suspense may overwhelm you, especially one of the climatic scenes between Sam, Frodo and Smeagle and the Ring.    Some of the band fall and you wonder when things get bleak if Aragon will indeed return as king. I don't want to give it a way but some ghosts …

While the first two LOTR films, "Fellowship of the Ring" and "The Two Towers" alike, sat easier on my mind and ended up being more enjoyable, Return of the King stands as a positive conclusion, a satisfactory wrapping up of Peter Jackson's vision of J.R.R. Tolkein's masterpiece. While purists are given more missing elements to complain about (as was the case with each of these films; to translate the entire weight of Tolkein's books would take at least 24 hours worth of film), all of the major elements …

The film, of course, is magnificent. Featuring the denouement of all that has come before, with great actors to play the parts, gorgeous visuals to enchant us, fantastic special effects, and a glorious score throughout the film, "Return of the King" represents over 3 hours of cinematic genius. It is a nearly-perfect conclusion to the story that was begun in "Fellowship of the Ring" and continued in "The Two Towers." This should not be a surprise to anyone.The DVD presentation of "Return of the King" …

Why do I need to write about something that swept through the Oscars? Because it is that good, if not better! The movie is 3 1/2 hours long and my only complaint is that it had to end!There are some really tense moments in this film especially when Frodo, Sam, and Smeagle battle over the ring. Some of the band of characters fall in this film but I do not want to give it away. Will Aragon become King? Perhaps if he can get the help of some ghost knights.Some phenominal battle scenes including some …

Pros: An outstanding adaptation of the books     Cons: Getting up to go to the bathroom during the movie     The Bottom Line: I said I'd review this when it came out, and I did!     Gigundus! Gargantuan! Place your favorite adjectives for “really, really big” here! I’m not talking about the movie! I’m talking about the elephants IN the movie! I have never in my animal-watching lifetime seen an elephant that big. Or with …
