If Peter Jackson had cast LEGO minifigs to star in the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy, then maybe I wouldn't have fallen asleep so much.

I enjoyed the films. They were just very long, and there was a lot of walking. I suppose the fact that I knew where the walking was leading didn't help. That's one of the big problems with a movie or game based on a beloved series of novels; there are no real surprises, or at least not if the filmmakers don't want the fans setting them on fire.

I just hope the LEGO version is able to poke fun at the films for their various failings. If I don't get at least five instances of the credits beginning to roll at the end of The Return of the King I'm going to burn the building down.
