well, I watched it last night, and I read the book before also, I found it was too long in some parts and skipped too much in other parts (EG, the ents), not to mention the movie was over 3 hours long, what do you think?

i read the lord of the rings and the history of middle earth im a huge fan. this is the best attempt at making an lotr movie yet, i dont really watch the movies till they come out on tv(hbo..etc) but i hear the two towers has the ents in it? thats more than i ever thought they'd put in, seeing as how they left tom bombadil(forgive spelling) out of the fellowship of the ring

i read the books when i was like, 10.saw the movie last night and it was danm good. the war was fucking amazing, too bad the elves didnt bring any 500 gallon buckets of hot tar though, that would have kicked ass. kinda increadably predictable though, might be because i read the book. all in all, 2 thumbs up

It's coming out in a few days here in Australia, when it does come out i will definetley see it, the first one was great, the length is no problem for me, I like a good movie and its not like they have long boring scences filled with talking they actually have quite a good amount of action to keep you on the edge of your seet.


Griffons love gold and, like some dragons, they steal it, hoard it, and ferociously guard it.

I got thinking about why they left out ol' Tom. I've come to the conclusion that the writers of the movie really couldn't include everyone, seeing as how long each book really is. Therefore they had to stick just to the main plot: the quest of the ring. The only beef I have with the writers is that they included a love affair with Aragorn and Arwen, which really didn't happen in the book. I can't say too much though... the director/writer is a huge fan of the books, so I'm glad that he was behind it all.

God I'm a geek...

About the love affair, movies these days have to have some kind of love story. Otherwise, how would I be able to get my girlfriend to go to it? It sucks, but they want to make more money and it's a way for them to target people who might not otherwise be interested in it.

I have also seen the movie and i luved it. It's a sort of movie that owns all other movies, It's incredible, I like everything about it except some parts in the books that has been left out.
But I don't think something has been boring in any of the films so far, do you?

I saw it. Frodo looks too gay. I'm sorry, that just bugs me. Gandolf is awesome. The part where Legolas "surfs" down the steps was awesome. I saw it at 10 and it didn't get out till one and it was way hot in the theater. If it wasn't such a damn good movie I would have been pissed at the length.

well.. i made it almost over a year without seeing the first one. but, my sister wanted to see it. so a few days ago she was watching. i was too lazy to leave the couch, so i ended up watching it too. i must say, it is one of the worst movies ever made. i hated it. so i refuse to see the second one. i'm not going to sit there for 3 hours and be disappointed again. plus, it didn't even have to be that damned long. they could have left a lot of crap out. i say boourns to lord of the rings.

god.. i'd rather watch david bowie prancing around in those tight grey pants in Labyrinth than watch a lord of the rings movie.

lol, labyrinth rocks. I enjoyed that song he sings during the ballroom scene so much that I arranged it for the piano and memorized the words so that I can sing and play it anytime I'm at a piano.

Yes, Mr. Attitude plays the piano. heh
