I am bigtime pumped about this movie. I'm just afraid that I am so excited that the movie won't live up to it. Hope I'm wrong http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

I really *hope* so. They did cut out an awful lot of scenes and replaced some stuff in the first one... The movie was great, but I was slightly dissapointed because of that.

A friend just saw it and when asked to describe it in one word said 'awesome'. He also says that it's better than the first one and almost 100% true to the second book. That coming from a fellow Tolkien fan, I think it's gonna rock. Can't wait to see it on Sunday! http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/devil.gif

You must have
a)asked your friend not to tell you anything so as to not ruin it
b)a friend that lies
c)a friend that hasnt read LOTR:TTT in a long time.
Sadly I had just re-read the Two Towers in prep for the movie. Many times during the movie i just shook my head and said NO NO NO! After reading the book I had my "mental picture" of what all happens in the book. So as to not ruin it, I wont go into the details. Reread the book and then watch the movie, but if you do dont be surprised to find yourself feeling slightly disappointed as well as questioning how they will work things out in ROTK.
As for the movie itself it WAS an awesome movie. Some of the changes I can see why they were needed, so as to not make the movie 6+ hours long. I made the mistake of going in with my preconceived notion of how everything would play out as per the book, and that caused me to not enjoy the movie as much the first time I watched it. When going back and just looking at it as a movie I was able to enjoy it so much more. Legolas gets all the cool moves in the LOTR movies it seems, and you just have to sit there and go, "Woah that f*&^%%^ rocked!" Go see the movie, but be sure to go in without the preconcieved mental map from the book. I am looking forward to the DVD already (although I am waiting to get it until the jerks release the "full - with scenes cut from the original - 4CD set" release.

I accepted the fact a long time ago that books != movies.
If the movie stays with the spirit of the book, I am happy.
esp. when it comes to a story as beloved and complex at LOTR. There is no way they could have made everyone happy, even if they had made a miniseries out of it and used the full book for a screenplay.
They did a terrific job, imo, in LOTR:FOTR, so I am looking forward to this next movie big-time http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif
