There's some great scenes, but sooooooooo much boring walking
I read the books long before, so the movies were good because it was a chance to see it come to life. I could see it being boring if I had seen them first. But if you've read the books, there's really no such thing as "boring walking" in a book. The writing is always engaging; there's always some lore or detail being given, so it's not boring. Loved the books, so the movies are just like a guilty pleasure. Like I said, a cozy three hour vacation from reality.
