Did the people who gave this movie 5 *s even read the books?
on April 6, 2004
I went to see this movie at midnight the day it came out. I read the book and was addicted to it. After staying awake until 4 in the morning on a school night and being so disappointed with the movie, I was not very happy.
Here are the things I was displeased with.
1) (MOST IMPORTANTLY) Where the heck was Saruman/Sharky?! He is my favorite freaking character and they left him out!!! I'm aware that they are going to put him in the extended version dvd... but still. I was really mad.
2) The left out the entire part at the end where Saruman captures the shire and cuts all of the trees down. So mad!
3) This wasn't as big a deal to me as my first two rants were... but still; I didn't like the whole happy ending. I don't know about anyone else who read the book, but I was kind of depressed after reading it.
(...) If you want to be totally amazed, read the book and don't be a lazy-bum.(...) <3
also: If you happened to not like my review b/c I didn't give the movie five stars.... well, then you probably didn't read the book. SO ANGRY!!!
