So who has seen this movie yet?? And what did everyone think of it??
Went to see the Midnight viewing when it was released here the other day...also saw it again after work last night...going to see it again this
afternoon. Yes, judging by that you can safely assume I LOVED IT
I'll try not to ruin it for people who haven't seen it...but...
Damn Golum OWNED this movie! Most memorbale character is - without a shadow of a doubt - Golum...best CGI character I've ever seen. Yoda who? Jar Jar
Binks who?? Golum freakin ROCKS!! Also the most convincing depiction of Multiple Personality Disorder from him as well...ya gonna laugh your ass off
if ya ain't seen it yet
As for the rest...where to start?? From the initial battle between Gandalf and the Balrog, this movie kicks you square up the butt and keeps laying in
the kicks till you're sporting treadmarks on the seat of your pants.
Most memorable battle scene is a toss up between Helms Deep and Isengard. Helms Deep is beyond anything I've ever seen
again...just...whoa...unbelieveable, I plan on seeing this movie many many many times if only for THAT battle scene.
Ent attack on Isengard also rates freakin highly...trust me, after seeing that you would want to go hug a tree ASAP just to get on their good
If I HAD to find something to grumble about, I'd probably say Gimli's character was getting a little too close to becoming the 'comic relief' for
my liking. Still left me near to tears with laughter though...
Of course this movie was much appreciated as it was filmed here and so features a shyte load of scenery from this country! Wahoooo! You'd be
surprised how LITTLE of that mindblowing breathtaking scenery is CG work
Also a great feature for my friends and I was spotting people we know who
were in it...my flatmate for instance, we spotted him some 14 times in various scenes around the Helms Deep Battle sequences...including a big shot of
his doofy grin when the Elves arrive...hehehe. One of our mates also could be seen many times throughout that sequence as well. Funny thing was that
you could also spot both of them, if ya knew them, as Gondorian AND as Rohan in the Helms Deep sequence...hehehe...bit of hair dye, change of costume
and its all good!
