Have you read other Tolkien books that enhanced your readingor viewing of The Lord of the Rings later? Like learning more of the elves from books like the Smill, The Books of lost Tales, the Unfinished Tales, etc. It makes me wonder if Tolkien would have ever gone on to go into more detail on the Dwarves or even the Hobbits. So anyways tell me what gave you a different vantage point over reading or viewing the Lord of the Rings after reading the other books connected to the story. Or even if it had any effect at all.
