Originally, one of the concept drawings of Gollum showed him having skeletal nostrils for a nose. However, that idea was dropped, because Weta Digital's concept artists felt that the skeletal nose made Gollum too unsympathetic and "zombie-like." Another concept showed Gollum having a small potbelly. That idea was also dropped as well. See more »

From the beginning to the very end, the Lord of the Rings trilogy is interesting and enjoyable. The books and the movies alike grasp one's attention as if they were real. You, the reader or viewer, can sense the pain of the characters, their emotions. The trilogy is truly powerful on screen. The second movie, however, I believe has something the first and third are missing; it feels like a bridge connecting two great islands. There is something unique about it that cannot easily be described. Metaphorically, the first movie is, say, a soldier. The third movie is the path home from war. And the second movie is the act of coming home because it contains the obstacles that must be passed through before achieving the goal. Although not 100% loyal to the written trilogy, the movies are done in such a way that the mainstream audience and LOTR fans from before the movies came out can say they were enjoyable and well made.
