Seeing as all then video games have been renamed, shouldn't the movies be renamed too? The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy, for example? -- Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 10:16, 14 January 2009 (UTC)


Is The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy really the name for the three films? It seems to me that the term was only used for DVD releases. Isn't it just The Lord of the Rings? Perhaps we should rename this "The Lord of the Rings (film series)", and change The Hobbit films to "The Hobbit (film series)"?-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  16:18, 15 November 2012 (UTC)

Bump. Whilst there's no rush with "The Lord of the Rings (film series)", I'm quite eager to move The Hobbit films to "The Hobbit (film series)". Please tell me what you think!-- KingAragorn  talk  contribs  edits  email  18:59, 17 November 2012 (UTC)
I feel that just adding "(film series)" is a little too general. I would expect an article titled "The Hobbit (film series)" to discuss and compare all movie versions of the The Hobbit - the 1966, 1977, 1985 Russian, and the 3 Peter Jackson versions. Perhaps I'm being too picky or pedantic but I think "The Hobbit (Peter Jackson's film series)" would be better (although obviously longer). --Gamling 19:36, 11 November 2012 (UTC)
