Ev's 30 Day Book Challenge - Day 19

The Fellowship of the Ring - J.R.R. Tolkien The Two Towers - J.R.R. Tolkien The Return of the King  - J.R.R. Tolkien


Day 19 - Favourite book turned into a movie.


I have to say The Lord of the Rings trilogy simply because, having adored the books I was petrified at how they might turn out when made into a movie.  The Ralph Bakshi movie from 1978 was interesting and back in the day, when I saw it, I was quite impressed, but when Peter Jackson's epic was announced, I was concerned.  Could he do it justice, the justice my favourite deserved?  Well, turns out that he most definitely could.  Jackson's trilogy is as much a treat for my eyes as the books were (and remain) a treat for my brain.


So, what could have been a HUGE case of Lunchbag Letdown, ended up being something wonderful and much loved.  :)
