LoTR- I have to agree- it was a travesty. I've read all three books three or four times- first time when I was a little nipper (well, 13)... I knew when I walked into the movie that it wouldn't live up to the way I saw it in my head but I had no idea that it was going to be that bad. What a waste! And the next two are going to be just as bad- I'll still go and see them though- what a sucker!
