Because its about the films, which are as far from Tolkien as you can get and still get away with using the name.
And, more importantly, just outed Eldo as a liberal (I knew I was right that first Awards year to put him in the most liberal category, but I believed him when he protested his innocence Mad )

I'm not rating the films as adaptations, but as films. - Eldo

Neither was I. Compare and contrast.
On the one hand, me, crabbit, unpleasant, drunk, hating the end results, and there's you, generally happy with the outcome, not to crabbit on a scale of 1-10- therefore a liberal.
I am afraid you have convicted yourself this time Eldo. Nod You have been a secret liberal all along! Nod 

Not to fear Eldo I shall do all I can to cure you at all costs. Twisted Evil (Not including any actual costs)

FOTR - 75%

Rated only according to how much I enjoy watching them:

FOTR: 10
TT: 7
ROTK: 8
AUJ: 4

And Once Upon a Time in America is a fantastic film, Petty, I had almost forgotten about it. Time for a rewatch soon, I think Smile

Here's my full ratings on a scale of 10, according to how much I enjoy each film (not their qualities as adaptations).

Animated movies:
TH: 4.5
LOTR: 2
ROTK: 3

PJ's movies:
FOTR: 9
TTT: 9
ROTK: 10
AUJ: 5

Objectively, FOTR is pretty clearly the best of the bunch, but I think I enjoy ROTK the most. Sometimes I put TTT at the top, even though it has a lot of the lowest lows in the trilogy. So my ratings are not set in stone at all. Shrugging

Also I think it's impotant to note that the ratingssystem isn't without it's flaws. It's certainly not a standarised measurment one apply. So one persons 3 might easily be another persons 7, one persons 7 might be another persons 10 and so on.

I think I tend to rate the movies a bit lower as they are obviously blockbuster movies and are therefor playing to the lowest common denominator at times.

Good point, Bluebottle. I know that I have a fairly generous rating scale. I try to rate movies based on how they succeed on their own terms, too, so if a blockbuster absolutely succeeds at every level of being a blockbuster I'll give it a 9 or a 10 rating. That doesn't mean I necessarily think it has the same artistic merit of a serious dramatic film, but if it works, it works. I use somewhat different criteria for other genres too. Not saying that's the right or best way to rate films, but it's just what I've found myself doing when I try.

Yes, so our ratings of the movies is probably closer than just the numbers would imply.

Apart from the obvious exceptions, of course.

Jackson's Lord of the Rings:
FotR: 10
TTT: 9.5
RotK: 9.5

Ralph Bakshi "Lord of the Rings"
Haven't seen it yet. Probably a nice solid: 5
(the "Walkingtacosdub" dubbed-over version (available on youtube)): 10  lol! 


Jackson's An Unexpected Journey: 3.0



P.S.
I just noticed that I have attained the rank of "clue-finder." How interesting!

As you may have noticed, our current rank system is based on the number of posts you have made, and the names come from Bilbo's various nicknames, especially the ones that he gives to Smaug. Nod

It's kind of funny that my ratings are lower than PT's. I based my ratings partly on stuff he's pointed out that never even occurred to me Very Happy

Its that long since I watched Pj's cut that really the scores are more a reflection of watching my own edits.

Obviously you need to start watching better films and not crap like Avengers then Twisted Evil (Seen Wicker Man yet? Suspect  )
