Thanks for posting this, [In reply to] Can't Post

it was a very interesting read.

While i'm glad Boorman went on to Excalibur, a film that i love, i'm sooo glad he passed on LotR-- some of that sounds too weird.

It's been so long since i've seen the Bakshi version, but i remember thinking it was pretty cool, if a tad confusing, when i saw it as a freshman in high school in the eighties (on VHS!). Is it really as bad as people say? I guess it's time to see it again...
