- aSo, have you seen all three The Lord of the Rings movies?
- bYes, but I didn't really like the third one at all.
- aThat's the Return of the King, right?
- bYeah. Even though the customs were brilliant, I didn't think it was as good as the first two. What did you think?
- aI thought the special effects were amazing, but I got a bit confused. The plot was too complicated for me.
- bDid you read the books before you watched the movies?
- aNo. did you?
- bYes, I've read them many times. I think it's much easier to follow for people who were already familiar with all the characters.
- aYes, trying to keep track of all the characters was quite confusing for me.
- bI also think that it was much better in the theatre than at home.
- aMost movies are. Another problem for me was the film was dubbed in German with English subtitles.
- bThat happens a lot in non-English speaking countries.
- aI heard that The Return of the King was nominated for 11 Oscars.
- bActually, they not only had 11 nominations, but they won 11 Oscars, too!
