Well... anyone seen it yet? Its been global for 24 hours here now, some of you must have done. I just got back from seeing it, anyway.
I loved it - a great end to the trilogy. I know the end was.. different.. from the book, but it was a good way to tie it up I thought. The battles and special effects were simply incredible, Weta have raised the bar. I thought it had ended about 4 times, but every time it faded back in to reveal another 5 or 10 minutes of movie... brilliant.
The only sad thing is, next christmas will feel somewhat hollow :/
