Well, This Is It!
Just wanna tell you all I was yesterday evening at the very-special-restricted-access avant-premiere of the FOTR. Sorry if you find this disgusting, I find it also! :-)
Well, there is only one thing to say: _______WoW_______!
I can't wait to be 5 days later to see it once more! Of course, it lacks some pieces of the original story, and of course some other pieces are told a little too fast, but hey, this is a film, what would you expect? I mean, this was inevitable unless you wanted a 25-hour-movie. There is only one time where this is a nuisance to the comprehension.
Apart from this, the actors are good to very good, the
open-air shots are breathtaking, special fx are really nice, the story is great (but we
knew this already!), and the music in itself makes the trip to the cinema necessary.
I don't think this is the best movie ever, but probably the best of its kind! Best of the year anyway! Thanks Peter!
