    Since this is in the movie section I'm going to go ahead and put two and two together and assume you're talking about the flicks. I liked all of the films but the impact of seeing middle-earth realized in live action the big screen for the first time was impossible for Jacksom to recreate in his sequels (at least for me), so I'd have to go with the first offering "The Fellowship of the Ring".

    Yes the movies.

    I am going with the Two Towers BARELY over The Return of the King. The fight at Helms Deep was damn good.

    Funny that the first two have the initial votes... didn't the third one win the most oscars?

    I'm afraid that I can't vote for it that way, because it is, in fact, one long story and not three related ones with recurring characters and three different climactic scenes. Unlike the Stars Wars trilogies, there's no change in time frames or locations. The books and movies would simply be entirely too much to take in all at once, and would have never been read or watched.

    As it should....the movie wasn't finished until the final installment was released.

    Heresy!!! :grrr:

    I agree with Avvie, I can't rank them. But not just because it's all 1 big story. I can't pick between them, I thought they were all great.

    Bring on the Hobbit!
