    I'm sure someone here must've pointed this out already, but the title of your thread is grammatically clumsy and perhaps even a bit incorrect.

    Perhaps it should read: "If I had directed the film"

    However, to say, "If the film was directed by me" is wrong on so many levels I just can't even begin to know where to start.

    Sorry...crazy English-Tool in me had to say that.

    Doesn't...just bothered my crazy grammatical mind and I had to say something.

    Feel free to ignore it.

    i know. stuff like that bugs me too. but then again my mom is a teacher and majored in English so why would it bug me at all... wonko's right, by the way ( or should i say 'by the way, wonko's right' ???:D )

    i donno what i would feel if the ilm was directed by u. i love PJ and praise him often. so, i'd keep it the way it is cept for a few things here and there. ok. alot of things. but thats beside the point.:D

    As a serious response to this thread I wouldn't want to change a thing about this movie.
    Not that I don't think you could do a good job directing it, sure you have no experience and stuff, but maybe you're a genius in a canvas chair, I don't know. ;)
    What I DO know is that this movie--although some of the aspects were disappointing in what was left out or what changed--met my expectations fully. So much of it was exactly as I pictured, and to see it on the big screen was just breathtaking. I was pleased with the film, it was as good as I'd hoped and I don't think that I'd have it changed, even if we COULD have seen Galadriel's gifts to The Fellowship, or left out all the Arwen extras. ;)

    Glorfindel...
    Yeah. I would really have liked to see him in it as Glorfindel's a beast and one of my favorite Elves.
    But still, I think people rag on PJ too much.
    He did such an excellent job, I mean...sure Sam's accent was minging...and he could have included more Brits in the cast to make it more authentic, but still it was amazing and I wouldn't change it!
    I mean...those characters just come to life...Viggo Mortenson IS Aragorn...

    also if u look at the extra features on the Lort:FotR DVD the y tell u somewhere that Viggo was the most into the whole thing.

    If I had directed the film it would have been a way, way longer movie.

    Um...I haven't seen the extended DVD version, but I heard from a very reliable and quite delectable source that it's just TOO long that way...

    Anyway...yeah. The End. I'll reserve MY judgement till I see it.

    I would write the screenplay and direct it, and I could have made it closer to the books without losing any of the 'movie appeal'.
