I enjoyed the movies, as well as the books. For me, the movies held the visual factor....It brought the scenery of Middle-earth to life, so to speak. And, hands down, the best soundtrack for a movie ever. I get a cold chill and tears when I listen to the begining couple of minutes of "Balin's Tomb".

For those that might be interested, there are a couple of fan movies out there that deal with some of the other stories. OK...They actually deal with Aragorn. And don't discount them because they are fan-made...These two films are both award-worthy in my opinon.

The Hunt For Gollum - The story of Aragorn's search for Gollum prior to the events of the Lord of the Rings (the story is mentioned by Gandalf in his conversation with Frodo.)

Born of Hope - The story of Arathorn and Gilraen, the parents of Aragorn.
