Rose, that is so sweet!  I love reading about your children, they seem so loving and nice.

My best memories of LOTR are just the excitement of going to see it in the cinema the night it came out and me and my friends staying up really late afterwards talking about it.

LOTR also 'introduced' me to Elijah, who introduced me to the  Smashing Pumpkins who have affected my life SO much. 

Also, joining this forum and meeting everyone here

Thank you, Liladriel    And thank you for your sweet comment about joining the forum and meeting all of us.  I feel the same way.

Oh, I just thought of another great LOTR related memory.  When ROTK came out on DVD in May, we were really tight financially (we always have to be careful with our money but things were especially tight then for reasons I won't bore you with ).  We did not have any extra money to buy the DVD.  We had not seen it in the theator and were "dying" to see it.  Anyway, our three sons emptied their piggybanks and came up with enough money to buy the DVD.  I remember them sitting at the table counting every penny and hoping they would have enough money if they put all their money together.  They had almost exactly enough (I think we helped out with a dollar or two). Our whole family went to K-mart to buy it together.  So actually. our ROTK DVD belongs to my three sons but they graciously allow their Dad, two sisters and me to watch it, too. 

Aww Rose that story is so cute. Your children really are true fans of LOTR

Thanks, Chrysanthemus!    The three boys are 12, 9 and 7.  The two girls are 6 and 3.  I am proud of them.  They are not perfect (just as their Mom is far from perfect  ) but they are sweet, tenderhearted children and I love them dearly.

Thank you!  *smiles broadly*  Every Mom likes to hear her children complimented.  It means a lot.  Thanks. 

And you are right, none of us are perfect.

WOW this is gonna be long, here goes nothing

* LOTR has changed my whole life. I have never seen a movie soo amazing in my life before, the whole story just blew me away and I love the fact that it was continued and u have to wait a whole year to see the sequel
* LOTR made me love New Zealand so much. If it wasn't for the movie I wouldn't have visited NZ and now I wanna live there
* Having the chance to go and see the sets of the movie was brilliant
* LOTR made my love orlando bloom and dom, the new guys!!!
* I collected soooo much LOTR merchandise over the past 3 years and now I'm still collecting. Its sooo cool to collect things from your fave movie
* I made so many lovely friends from forums (including these ones) at LOTR conventions and at premieres

*** The best one is having the chance to go to new zealand to the two towers and ROTK premieres was the most amazing thing ever. Meeting the whole cast of my fave movie in the country where it was filmed was the most amazing thing anyone could experience ***

Sorry its long but u can see how LOTR changed my life!!!

I'm still fully into LOTR now that the extended version of ROTK came out and I'm still totally obsessed!! LOTR FOREVER

Well to be Honest i wasn't into LOTR until Last year, Yeah i know, Shame on me!, but when i bought The Fellowship of the ring, i just loved it the minute i saw it, i watched it with my 3 little nephews who they loved it too, after we watched it they were pretending they were Aragorn and Legolas, it was awesome, i did cry over them, yup, though i did knew Elijah before cus i have seen his movies, but i wasn't really a fan of him so yeah, the sad things is that none of my friends like LOTR cus they think is a waste of time, so i'm like whatever , my brother did like them, but he really doesn't watch them lol, so yeah and i'm really glad to have met you all even though i'm new here, i'm glad that i can find such incredibles fans as you all.

I also didn't get into them until last year and ROTK was the only one I got to see in the theraters so one of my favorite memories is going to the movies and getting to see it there.

The movies have changed my life in a way I can barely explain. I look at the world different;y after having seen them and I am so happy for it. I very much took to heart Sam's speech at the end of TTT when he said that "there's some good in the world and it's worth fighting for."

Another of my best memories was watchint the Oscars this past year and watching them win all the 11 awards. To me it was amazing to know that the Academy was honoring the triology as a whole instead of just one movie.

Although I never got to see the others in the movies I always like to remember that when FOTR came out they were all on TRL on MTV and I was watching and thinking to myself  "I'm not into fantasy but I would really like to see this movie." Just the idea that I was open to such a new experiance is alaway something I think fondly of.

But the best thing memeory to me is the day I stumbled upon this message board. I was looking for pictures of Elijah and came across this amazing place. This is the only message board I have ever become a member and actually stayed a member and conitue to post and I credit a lot to you amazing people. I have friends that love LOTR but not nearly as much as I do and here I do not feel like I am weird for having these movies change my life.  I feel that in some ways that you guys understand some parts of me more then my firends that I have known all my life. And I thank you guys for that.

LotR has turned me into a certified nut. Lol. But it's all good; I like having an odd obsession.

The best thing LotR has done for me as a person is it gave me purpose. That's a huge statement, I know - but it's true. I've set goals for myself (like going to New Zealand), and I've worked out ways so that I can achieve those goals. LotR has helped me to see that I can have huge dreams, and then do something to make them come true.

I've also met tons of new amazing people that I wouldn't know if it hadn't been for these movies. I've met all of you here, and have really let this forum become an integral part of my life. You all rock. I've also become closer with a lot of people that I never would have if we hadn't had this common interest of LotR.

I also got a job thanks in part to LotR. Lol, I decided I wanted to go to NZ. I needed money, and got a job. And it's been awesome; I've met so many people thanks to working, and I've learned a lot about myself, too.

Not to metion I've discovered Tolkien.. that's huge, too!

My favorite directly-related LotR moment however.. it'd have to be last year, Dec. 16, when I went to a Trilogy Tuesday screening. It was a theater filled with 500+ LotR fanatics, just as obsessed and dedicated to LotR as I was. It was the most intensely involved audience I've ever been a part of. It was really an experience, to say the least. Everyone clapped and cheered, booed and hissed, snorted and laughed, and sniffled and cried at just the right moments; never the wrong ones. It was so cool, and I don't think I'll ever forget that atmosphere.

I think my best LotR memories are probably still to come, however.. haha. July, get here faster!!!

Yes, LotR is good, i found an addiction and everything. Mostly it's the same as everyone says here. But for me it also made me think of what a mess te world is right now. It made me think in general. It changed my character (hopefully for the good, i'm more critical and less naief and good believing), and i started to see the parallels with the real world we live in since i finished the hobbit, the LotR trilogy and the Silmarillion. This world is not lost. Yet. It opened a new world for me, i met new people, by forums (including this one) where i met people with the same passion i have and it (by wich i mean LotR as much as the people that share my passion) kept me going when i felt sad, even in the extreme times. (I believe i already told you i have SAD, and was suffering a depression this summer). At times i could do nothing else but cry for some situations, i turned on my computer and felt a bit better. Talking to people who didn't care for who i am, but for what i love really supported me and made me stronger. But most of all it influenced my thinking and my way of living. Somehow i believe more in the small things of life, and i'm less materialistic.

In short: It meant a lot for me. Not just in the beauty of the books and films, but most of all the meaning of them.
So far my long story again. blablablablablablabla. But mostly it's just like what you people say. I love you all. Amen.

I was on the 6th grade when LOTR was on. I was just 11 years old and i was really amazed by the world that tolkien had created. Since i watched the fellowship of the ring, the only thing i was talking about was it. I can say that i grew up with the LOTR so it is very special to me. I remember dreaming about elijah when i was a little girl. Also i remember the excitement when i heard the DVDs were on sale. Watching the movie again and again never bores me.
