We went to see the third Lord of the Rings yesterday. I don't think any second or third movie can live up to the original in a series, but it didn't disappoint. My favorite part was concerning the city of the kings, Minis Tirith. The large rock ledge, with the circle on top, the Romanesque statues and the hall of kings were all wonderfully historical. It doesn't top the part in Fellowship of the Ring when the fellowship is in canoes on a river, and come upon the two huge carved rocks, one that looked of a Viking and the other of a Roman soldier. Here's a few sites: Official Lord of the Rings movie site and National Geographic's Beyond the Movie, with language and Tolkien information
