  • LOTR: The Two Towers

    I'm tempted to go stand in line for the midnight showing tonight! ...Lot's of good reviews for this one so far....

    I can't wait either Greg. It was a movie I couldn't wait to be made but reading the books, it was a movie I didn't think they could do justice to the books. What a pleasant surprise I got after seeing the Fellowship. Now, Dave and I are patiently waiting to see the next in the series. I hear the Two Towers is better than the first and that's hard to imagine.

      I can't wait to see it either. I loved the first one, pitty there's a year between the movies. it's too long to wait.

        I was going to go for the opening here tomorrow night, but I'm going to be busy, so I'll be going to go see it on the weekend. I'm definitely excited about this one too!!

          A long time to wait for the movies...a year in between, but after waiting, what, 15 or so years since I originally read the books...I can wait, (sorta)!

          Just think what a great weekend moviefest it WILL be after the 3rd comes out. All 3 on DVD, at home, light a fire, pop some corn and pop all 3 in, a nice 9 hour movie day!!! lol

          Can't wait to get in line to see this one!

            It is VERY good.

            I saw Two Towers about a week ago as my company had an advance screening. It is much better than the first movie in my opinion.

              I re-read the triology about every 5 years or so. I was very impressed with the first movie, not only with how good it was, but how closely it followed the book.

              I hope to catch the Two Towers this week end.

                Giant Spoiler!!

                If anyone wants to see what Gollum looks like and read a very interesting article on his creation, check this out!

                  Gollum was already shown in the movie previews. He matches my vision of Gollum so far.

                  Here's a little trivia:
                  Anyone remember from the books what Gollum's original name was before he was corrupted by the ring?

                      You jumped on that one pretty quick there Greg. You're not one of these "Trekky" types are you?

                      Yes, it was Smeagol. For some reason, after reading those books in 78 I remembered that name. I kind of grew fond of the slimy little character.

                        ...and for 100 extra points - What was the name of Smeagol's cousin...who was the one who actually found the ring while they were fishing?

                        DJ - I was a big Lord of the Rings geek as a child...still am I guess!

                            Good memory DJ! ...1978 is the last time you read it?


                            • #15
                              Yes, 78 was pretty much the last time I read it. It's amazing what comes back when you really liked something but I would be hard pressed to answer much more than that I'm afraid.

                                I was going to post this as a 'guilty pleasure', but I actually don't feel all that guilty about it: I love a good horror movie.

                                I just watched "Cube" and can recommend it (kind of gross, but excellent production values).

                                I'll pass on most horror series, although...

                                by Doug Nelson
                                I recently got into a conversation and mentioned that a movie they mentioned remembered better than it rewatched. The person I was speaking with had no idea what I was talking about, but I'd assumed everyone thought about movies in that way. Some movies simply seem better in the memory, even very recent...

                                No, this movie isn't porn, it is a Stephen Soderburg-on-acid flick that, in my opinion, is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. I hated it. Critics loved it. 'Nuf said.

                                The only thing worse was a movie called "Random Hearts" that came out a few years ago.

                                Do you have a sleeper movie that has become a favorite of yours? If so pass it on. Maybe others will enjoy it too. No "Gone With The Wind", "Citizen Kane", etc. Here's mine:

                                "The Earthling"
                                No, it's not a science fiction movie as the title might suggest....

                                OK, we have a thread for books, a thread for music, an entire forum for cooking, it's about time we had a thread for my favorite subject: movies.

                                I'm a total moviephile. I have every movie channel our cable system offers, and's biggest subscription package. And I wish I had...
