Allow me to say hello, and welcome to our humble abode! I'm quite interested to hear that you came to be a fan through first seeing An Unexpected Journey. It seems like most on here have come to Tolkien through a love of the books, or from seeing The Lord of the Rings first. It's wonderful to meet someone who has come along on a different (and more recent) path.
I wouldn't be doing my duty as a Tolkien nut if I didn't say that you should read the books as soon as possible.... But I'm sure you'll come to them in your own time.
You'll find TORn to be a very welcoming place, filled with some of the most absolutely wonderful people. I've found it to be one of the very few spots on the internet that has remained an warm and inviting place over the years (I've been hanging around since 2002 myself).
So, once again, welcome, and I hope you have a wonderful time here.
"The danger with any movie that does as well as this one does is that the amount of money it's making and the number of awards that it's got becomes almost more important than the movie itself in people's minds. I look at that as, in a sense, being very much like the Ring, and its effect on people. You know, you can kind of forget what we were doing, if you get too wrapped up in that." - Viggo Mortensen
