Being a fan of The  DEC 19 2001

Being a fan of The Lord of the Rings book trilogy, I approached the first installment of Hollywood's version with both excitement and a bit whole hell of a lot of skepticism. Color me pleasantly surprised. While it's not going to win any Oscars, it kept me entertained for 3 hours and was a pretty faithful adaptation of the book (faithful meaning they knew what to keep, what to cut out, and what to explain a little more). If you're looking for some holiday fantasy fun, skip Potter and see this instead.
