I watched the first installment of the Lord of the Rings and I did not like it at all. It gave me the impression that I was watching a video game that somebody else was playing. I had a hard time trying to follow the story line. It might be interesting for little kids to watch these elves, wizzards and monsters, but I did not find it entertaining. I don't understand what this big hype is all about. I will definetly skip any of the new installments.
