I read all of those books many years ago in my native language (Portuguese translation), and recently read them in the native author's language which gave me a much better perspective.
The most admiring thing in Tolkien work it's his capacity to create a full world with real geography, different languages, cultures, cities, buildings, monuments and a solid record of historical events.
Quite impressive.

I also read all the books and they are really awesome. Children of Hurin for example and silmarillion.

As for the movies go, I really liked LOTR trilogy, although there were a few things, that bothered me. The love story for example, Aragorn Arwel, argh!

As for the new Hobbit movies, I really don't care for them. CGI is awful. The original LOTR movies look awesome even today, Hobbit is just "ugly" (for the lack of a better word). Angry
