For me, it depends on your vision of what you think middle Earth looks like. I have no idea, except for the descriptions given me by Rejenia, what exactly the scenery in New Zealand adds to the movies but, I do have sort of a sound picture of what I think middle Earth would sound like if I were there and Peter Jackson pretty much hit it on the nail head.

Good morning all,
My friend who is a huge Lord of the Rings fan said that New Zealand was the perfect place to film the movies because he said it looked exactly as he imagined Middle Earth would look. I wonder what's so unique about the geography there that would appeal to a Tolkien fan. Is it that it's large enough to have all types of geography, or is it the overall size itself--not real small and not real huge? Maybe it's a sighted thing that only sighted people can explain, or not explain.
