Cool, but I preferred the first trailer.
It had more 'style'.
LOTR, is probably the best non-funny book written (the best funny book being Soul Music [or maybe THGTTG])

I have never read a better book than Lord of the Rings, and probably never will. I'm afraid the movie is going to ruin it for me, because when I read it i'll picture the movie rather than my own thoughts and images of what things must look like..

I'm still bussy reading it (haven't got much time)

That is indeed the minor point of recording a book. I hope they'll do it well

DF, I heard D & D is quite a crappy movie, is it true?

I wanted to read it... I'll do it when I've got some more time, 1400 pages is quite a lot.

Atresica - D&D is probably a 'A' class, 'B' movie
The acting was awfull, some awfull bits that where supposed to be 'funny' . And some moments ripped off other films. (Like in the Mummy Returns)
But, the plot itself was quite good and the SFX where good.It also stuck quite close to the D&D world.

Jesse - Yes, it was a Discworld book.
And my all time best books are,
Soul Music,
Hitch Hikers Guide To The Galaxy,
Carpe Jugulam,
LOTR,
Theif Of Time,
Strata,
The Dark Side Of The Sun,
Nemesis,

Don't you think Jingo and the Fifth Elephant are like the best Discworld books ever? And why isn't the Wheel of Time on there?!

Wheel of Time? Do you mean 'Theif of Time'?
Thats what the lastist Discworld book is called here.
The Fifth Elephant,Jingo and the rest of the DW books would be under that list.

No, sorry, I didn't mean WoT was a Discworld book. I just meant it should be on everyone's list of greatest books ever!

We make a lot of concessions to the Americans, don't we...

Apparently when they made 'The Madness of King George,' it was originally called 'The Madness of George III' but the Americans wondered why they hadn't seen the first two parts...

Heir, you know that li'l Spanish phrase you've got there, why is it 'to the victory' and not 'until the victory?' I thought 'hasta' meant 'until' or 'up to.'

you must be right... i don´t speak spanish very well (ok, i don´t speak it), i´m brazilian, and portuguese is different. But in the end, "until" is the same of "to always"
