Sir, do you know the history of J.R.R. Tolkien? Did you know that he was a devout Christian? There are many metaphors that he may or may not have intentionally left in the move towards Christianity.

Hmm, just like Jesus, who did not use the powers He had at His disposal to get Himself off of the cross...?

>The ending is ridiculous, they leave you hanging on for the sequel...

Ok, one more question, have you ever read the books? They actually went into the second book to wrap up the movie so viewers wouldn't go totally insane.

> One day Jesus will come back and He will fight evil the right way.

What? This is a movie, remember? Fiction. Pretend. For fun.

My last comment to this writer and people like him is that if you are going to be vocal about Christianity and your faith, please do so in a manner that does not leave the rest of us Christians looking like idiots. Learn how to write persuasively. Take an English grammer class or two. Thank you.
