"It's a ton of fun, well put together and has a great softback design. I highly recommend." -- Book Legion (added by author)
"I would say that this book is a must for every Ringer. Braun's research is extensive, his interviews with artists and extras are delightful, and his facts are far from repeats." --Megan Hayner, TheOneRing.com (added by author)
"Author J.W. Braun, an eminently qualified aficionado of the movies, offers readers a dragon's lair of information about the creation, production and marketing of the films as well as the cultural zeitgeists surrounding each theatrical release." —Scene Magazine
"The Lord of the Films is one of those cases where the back cover bumpf is actually true . . . after reading this book, you'll go back and watch the trilogy again with a fresh pair of eyes, as if it's the first time you're watching it." —TheOneRing.net
"Braun has somehow managed to capture every little additional detail you could ask for from The Lord of the Rings films every step of the way. The book is wonderful as either light reading for fans of the films looking for more LotR content and deeper appreciation, or as a companion guide while the movies play on the television." —Buzzine
