Who is ready for Return of the King!!!!!????

Only a few more days! (I'm actually not seeing it until Saturday...) I am so excited! People are saying it's the movie to beat for the Oscars this year. I hope it lives up to the hype, I think it's going to!

Will Frodo destroy the ring?

Will Aragorn become king of Gondor?

Will Orlando Bloom continue to look HOT!!!???

Eeck, I can't wait.

Too hot to be in the same shot! Aragorn the ranger and Legolas.


Sam, Frodo's faithful companion (not like THAT!), with the light from Galadriel.


Mmmm...

Hello, I'm a sexy elf.


Faramir. He is cool, but you have to have seen the extended version of Two Towers to really know that.


King Aragorn!


The White City, Minas Tirith, the capital of Gondor.


Aragorn rallies the troops for the Battle of Pelennor Fields.

I can't wait! I'm hoping to see it Thursday, but I'm not counting on that

It's 3 and 1/2 hours long..I just have to plan my bathroom/fluid consumption strategy accordingly so as to not miss a second And probably get there at least an hour early. I'm planning to get my tix online.

And of course Orlando will continue to look HOT are you insane?

They might make The Hobbit next, I read that last week

I have a friend who was at the premiere.
She says it was fantastic.

Of course, what else would it be?
yeah, there's my two cents

Here's an interesting article about Aragorn/Viggo

I don't think I can put into words what I thought about this movie

Definitely bring plenty of tissues..of course maybe some of you aren't the emotional wimp that I am

I don't want to give any of it away..but it's just wonderful..visually stunning, usual superb acting.. it's completely riveting..and the emotional part really got to me this time. Of course some of that is the sadness of the trilogy ending, but when you see it, I think you'll know what I mean.

This movie should win Best Picture, of course in all likelihood it won't

I have even more appreciation for Viggo now as well



My only disappointment is that Legolas isn't on screen enough

oh....you're not an emotional 'wimp' if you cry . There are events that happen to people that you would [or perceived to be] rather 'cold' if you didn't shed a tear, looked at least a bit pained, or in shock.

Even in a movie...if it's done well, if the actors and cinematography bring you in to care about the characters, the stories that unfold between, and around them-- you are that more likely to cry from the themes, events, and interactions-so skillfully portrayed !

I have to remeber to bring extra tissues! I know I'm going to need them. Probably going Sat or Sun.

I loved all the extra Faramir scenes, liked the psychological underpinnings PJ gave to explain why he was acting that way.

Luckily I have PLEBA and other fun threads to keep me occupied in a fun way [of several fun activities] while waiting for the weekend & movie. YAY

And in the TMI dept, I succeeded in not having to pee once until it was over Of course I was dehydrated from not drinking anything...but it was worth it

Btw, when I saw it people left before it was over..there are several times that the screen fades to black and it seems like it is over. Don't leave until it says "the end"

I really hope there was nothing after THAT

Ditto, and we even got there an hour early! IMO, the second movie is better, but maybe this one will grow on me.

LOL, I think my boyfriend was crying....at least I heard him sniffle a bit and afterward, his friend was saying how some parts are really sad even for guys and they both kinda nodded.

I have to say the movie included three of the things I fear the most: heights (the whole climbing and not ever being stable), a giant spider, and a finger getting cut off! *shudder*

I think they should combine all three extended versions and re-work them a bit so that they can release one HUGE long version!!! (yeah, yeah, on like 8 DVDs but so what?!?)

I just saw it, and I loved it, of course! I cried several times too, and I heard plenty of sniffling in the theater, so I wasn't alone.

I just can't understand Aragorn hooking up with the Liv the elf rather than the princess of Rodan. I know, that's what happened in the book. But I thought that Miranda Otto's character was so much more brave and dynamic. And that last scene she was in with her father really got to me.

If this movie doesn't win an Academy Award... But what really counts is that it will be remembered and watched forever long after other '03 films are forgotten.

Great movie, the best of the saga, my boyfriend cried and that was the second time that saw it, he is hard-core LOTR fan, sometimes he speaks me about that and in a moment what he says loses sense
