yeah, I thought the Ents would have been much worse really...

I actually really liked the way the story was handled really, especially "the pursuit" (so as not to give much away ) I was really impressed by that.

There were some gaps in the books that needed to be filled to transfer it to the big screen, it doesnt delve into the thoughts of each character so a certain degree of poetic license has to be used, and you can infer things more easily in books that you need to portray explicitly on film, or else everyone gets confused (ok for some films, not this one I think...)

I've read the books twice, most recently early this year, and already events are starting to fade. I think thats what makes LOTR so timeless really, that you can pick it up again a year or so after you last read it, and enjoy it all over again without remembering every little detail.

Still great film, have to say I thought it was better than FOTR. The problem most people have found is the sort of broken storyline, but really the nature of the book dictates this, that there are 3 sometimes 4 different threads running at once, I actually thought that was pretty well dealt with.

I just saw it, It rules. -spoiler blah blah blah- I was dissapointed that neither Shelob nor Gandalf's breaking of Sarumon was included but that will just make ROTK all that much better.

I saw the movie at 11AM , and as Gheto would say...it was badass! I loved how Frodo was slowly being taken over by the ring...Gollum/Smeagol was one ugly mofo and the character was perfect, and the battle scene...I couldnt get enough of it. Too many good things to say about the movie. It was great and I plan on seeing it again soon

Um ok now that that is out of the way. I just caught up on the posts and LMFAO at icelle. She was so right. I have read the books and blah blah but I still LOVED the movie. The crowd was so digging it too. When the title came up and everyone cheered and when they first showed Viggo I swear ( I am being serious) you could hear allot of girls sighing and some going woohoo and then the crowd laughed at that and the guys cheered at Gimli just to be smart asses. I soooooo thought of someone here with a Viggo avatar (cough*sulawesigirl4*cough) I think that last sentence belongs in this thread. Anyway. I loved it and am most likely going to go see it again, and I very very rarely do that. Oh and did I mention that Orlando has been raised on the "I want him to be my baby daddy" list. Good god that man is hot. I actually bought a YM magazine (and incase you don't know that is aimed at teens) because it was a double cover with him and EW on it. I saw Orlando and was like HELLO what's your name. Ok I need to calm down. It is getting a little hot in here.

hehe. sula, the resident Viggo-lover is present and accounted for. And OMV!!!! This movie rocked! It was full of Viggoness, Orlandoness (is that a word?), and some other new characters such as Faramir and whats-his-name Eowyn's brother who were also pretty damn tasty.

Ok, so much for the drooling. As for the movie. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Much darker than the last one. More complex, I thought. It is wonderful to see the characters being developed. The interaction between Gimli and Legolas is priceless. ("You'll have to toss me...Don't tell the Elf!")

One of the friends I went with is a big LOTR book freak, so he was whining all the way home about all the horrible changes, but thankfully I haven't read the books for two years, so I didn't notice them so much.

Other notes....Gandalf kicks ass! Gollum was well-done, imho. And although it took me a few moments to get used to the Ents, I do like them. Battle at Helm's Deep.....wowzers.

I went to a midnight showing last night and all i can say is wow!

Its one of those movies that you build up in your mind for so long and keep building it up and then you go and see it and it actually lives up to the expectations!

I am a big fan of the books as well and the changes didnt bother me that much, although I dont really like where they left off, probably just wanted more....

And Smeagol has to be the best CGI character ever!!!!!

Miss joyfulgirl who was all grumpy over LOTR last year, but then was kinda sorta not quite but almost won over by the DVD, LOVED Two Towers. She was at the matinee (first showing) here.

We had audience participation. People cheering and clapping and shit.
