Watched it over the weekend. I thought it was pretty good. I'm sure I would enjoy the book more, but that's true of most movies. I'm not sure why I never got araound to reading the series. I usually love that kind of stuff. I find I've been reading less and less as I get older. That's kind of weird when you think of it. I guess I just haven't made the time to read. I'm definately going to read something on my vacation. I will start with The Return of the King (the final Lord of the Rings book).
