Reading the Fellowship of the Ring, my 10 year old son, described the experience as "like looking into a painting." I would have to agree. It is one of the most beautiful stories to ever entertain my imagination. Here are some of my favourite quotes from all three movies:
THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING
- Arwen, as she gives Aragorn the Evenstar
"So do all that have lived to see such times. All you have to do is decide what to do with the time that given to you."
- Gandalf to Frodo
THE TWO TOWERS
- Samwise Gamgee
RETURN OF THE KING
- Aragorn at the black gates
"The end? The Journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path we all must take."
- Gandalf to Pippin
Watching all three stories together was an amazing treat, and I highly recommend it. But now Duncan and I are going for a walk, cause sitting down in front of the TV for almost 12 hours was harder than we thought it would be! Gotta stretch those legs!
