Best. Adaptation. Ever.
I’m very interested to hear Ryan’s report on Lord of the Rings since he (more than anyone else I know) was concerned how it would be translated to the screen. I finished Fellowship of the Ring a couple days ago, and as I watched the movie version I thought about all the choices that were made. It’s impossible (especially with Lord of the Rings) not to make changes to the story in order to make it play well on the screen. I was amazed at what a great adaptation it was. Every choice seemed to have been made for a good reason and the result was a fantastic screen-version of the book.
So, to sum up, I loved it. Can’t wait to see it again. And there was even a silly trailer for Goldmember.
