Yeah, I tend to view movies with different media beginnings in a “different way to tell X concept”. Probably explains why I liked Super Mario Bros, Street Fighter, both MK, and Assassins Creed.

I think those are the only ones I’ve seen.

@Blitzenexx Haha, well, if you read the book first (and props to you, since getting into the story initially is pretty slow going, because of the way Tolkien wrote and constructed it), be prepared for a reasonable number of "but that didn't happen" or "why did they leave that out?" moments. Like I said: it's probably the best book to movie adaptation there is, but it's still not 100%. Oh, and be sure to watch the latest versions, at least they've added some extra material.

But all in all, the movies are great. In fact: I'm watching the trilogy again as we speak. One of the networks I'm subbed to, decided to do a "Lord of the Rings Monday" cycle, so every Monday, one of the movies is shown. And even after already having seen all of them 4 times, they still get to me. Be prepared to be moved, perhaps even to tears, because there certainly are some heavy and beautiful moments in there.

Even though they were made several years later, and the effects they used are more advanced, the Hobbit trilogy can't even compare. Probably also because he spread the much smaller story so thin, that he had to add several elements to it, to pad it all out again...

@Delibheel Yeah, like I said: he overstepped there, probably still a bit drunk on his success with the Lord of the Rings trilogy. And it being five times longer? How about nearly ten? The Hobbit is just an average length pocket book, while the complete edition of The Lord of the Rings is almost 1300 pages...

@the_shpydar Haha, that's pretty funny. Wonder how I ever missed that, since I did regularly watch Robot Chicken.

@Delibheel I figured you did something like that, but the problem with that is that the Hobbit book uses normal paper, and the Lord of the Rings trilogy uses extra thin paper (making a physical comparison skewed), unless you have the three parts in separate books. And those separate parts aren't the complete edition either, so they're missing quite a few pages...

@Delibheel Aha, so a quadrilogy, with The Hobbit included, then?
Hate to break it to you, but still not the complete edition...

And then there's also still The Silmarillion, so if you're up for it, there's a fifth book...

Not really interested in the differences between complete and not complete as long as they tell the main story. These books do seem to have the most recent version though, whichever that might be.

I do want to get the silmarillion. Too bad it was not included in my mini collection, they're adorable.

It's cheap on kindle, but I don't really want to add yet another book to the backlog there at the moment.

@Delibheel "whichever version that might be"

Well, the one with the latest print run, obviously, and the added foreword telling you that this is the latest, completely revised and re-edited edition...

@Delibheel I just checked, and it actually is. The only difference between the hardcover bound edition (which is the one I got) and the separate books, is that it misses the appendices and legends. But you've got the complete story otherwise.
