This film, series and genre, geared for and supported by a young audience, has been overrated.

I enjoyed this movie more than the first, but I am not sure why. However, Gollum got to be a bit much (way too much) with his tortured soul and that at the end made the movie drag, and took away some of the magic.

THIS DISC IS DAMAGED and virtually UNPLAYABLE.

Fantastic movie! Amazing battle sequences! Jackson did a good job bringing the characters from the book into the movie. even though this is one of my favorite movies, I still like the books so much better! :)

Amazing movie. Legolas is awesome. Great battles scenes. A must see for action movie fans.

Sam: Face it, Mr. Frodo. We're lost. I don't think Gandalf meant for us to come this way.
Frodo: Gandalf didn't mean for a lot of things to happen, Sam.

Pippin (to Merry); I had the loveliest dream last night! There was this large barrel full of pipe-weed, and we smoked all of it. And then you were sick.

Legolas; Final count: forty-two.
Gimli; Forty-two? Oh, that's not bad for a pointy-eared, elvish princling. I myself am sitting pretty on forty-three.

Merry; He doesn't look too happy, does he?
Pippin; Not too happy at all, Merry.
Merry; Still, I suppose the view is nice from up there.
Pippin; Oh, yes. It's a quality establishment. I hear the staff are very good. What are you doing?
Merry; Nothing. The world's back to normal. That's all.
Pippin; No it isn't. I'm starving.
Merry; Good luck trying to find anything decent to eat in this place. Probably only dead rats and moldy bread. Saruman's store room!
Pippin; I don't believe it!
Merry; It can't be!
Pippin; It is!
Merry; Long-bottom leaf. Finest pipe weed in the South Farthing.
Pippin; It's perfect! One barrel each! Wait! Do you think we should share it with Treebeard?
Merry; Share it? No, no. Dead plant and all that. Don't think he'd understand. Could be a distant relative.
Pippin; Oh I get it. Don't be hasty.
Merry; Exactly.

Galadriel; In the gathering dark, the will of the Ring grows strong. It works hard now to find it's way back into the hands of Men. Men, who are so easily seduced by it's power.
