This third part of the series is really about true friend who saves you from temptation and bad influence. Good for kids.

Precious, precious.....There are two reasons why i go to the theater to see movies. 1- is for the large screen. 2- is for sound. I've always felt that sound plays a major part in enjoying a good film. And now with dvd and blu-ray, your able to recreate this same experience at home. There are quite a few movies that look good and sound good. But "Return of the king" not only looks great it's sound is amazing!!!! Which is why you MUST watch this using your HOMETHEATER!!!!! I was completely blown away by the sounds and visuals this movie contains. To say i have a favorite scene for sound is without a doubt the HUGE battle scene. The mere sight of the King's men versus the millions of trolls and other strange creatures is insane!!!! This entire scene rocked my world and it gets the "SOUND FREAK" approved award for putting you there!!! At times i was expecting the police to knock on my door and ask if they could watch it also. To be honest, the whole movie has breathtaking sounds and visuals. The three plus hours while watching the "Extended version" with scenes put back in caught me way off-guard.This amazing film is part of my collection and it should be a part of yours as well. I'm giving this experience 5 stars!!!!! For excellent sound, excellent visuals, a great story, amazing creatures, and being complete drained after viewing this film. 50 Buffalo wings with blue cheese dressing, mashed patatoes, string beans, corn on the cob, and an ice cream shake.

A fantastic conclusion to the epic tale and, on a technical note, we witness the advancement of motion capture technology that eventually leads to more immersive video games and films like Avatar.

I LOVE this movie! So amazingly wonderful. Need I say that Legolas is awesome? I love Shadowfax too! i liked that Aragorn became the rightful king of Gondor, and the ring gets destroyed. Sad ending though. It was sad that the elves leave middle earth along with Frodo, gandalf, and Bilbo. overall I think this was a wonderful movie! I actually own the special extended version of all three, so I actually haven't seen the non extended one. i am just going off the one i have seen. AMAZING MOVIE!

Frightening or Intense Scenes: aaaargh human heads being catapulted into Minas Tirith... gross

Frightening or Intense Scenes: what erry29 said. and there is one kiss at the very end. don't let that be a deterrent from you watching the movie. greatly recommended!

Violence: several battle scenes, and the battleground littered with bodies.

Aragorn: Hold your ground, hold your ground! Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you *stand, Men of the West!*

Sam (killing an orc): That's for Mr. Frodo! (He kills another one.) That's for the Shire! (He kills a third)...and that's for my old Gaffer!

Frodo (speaking to Gollum): I have to destroy the ring...I have to destroy the ring for both our sakes.

"The Way is shut. It was made by those who are dead, and the dead keep it. The Way is shut."

I know this isn't in this movie, it is in the Two Towers (also an awesome movie) but I love it!
Gimli: Legolas, I have 2 already!
Legolas: 17!
Gimli: I will not be beaten by an elf!

Gandalf: Fool of a Took!

Theoden; Little Hobbits do not belong in war.
Merry; All my friends have gone to battle. I would be ashamed to be left behind.
Theoden; It is a three days ride to Minas Tirith and none of my riders can bear you as a burden.
Merry; I want to fight!
Theoden; I will say no more.
Eowyn; Ride with me.
Merry; My lady!

Aragorn; You ride with us?
Eowyn; Just to the encampment. It's tradition for the women of the court to farewell the men. The men have found their leader. They will follow you anywhere, even to death. You have given us hope.
