Arrow The Two Towers (Movie)

I've been watching previews for the movie all day long..........I can't stop thinking about it. I was wondering who around here is going to see the movie??

Also, share your thoughts about it as well.


BTW-I'll be there!!

of course i'm gonna be there ... hopefully one of the first of my group of buds so i can spoil some stuff. heheh, just kidding ... i'm not THAT much of a jerk.

i got the trilogy and the hobbit (the books that is) for christmas last year because i was so psyched about the movies. i never read books so darn fast. i am a little disappointed that the movies leave out a lot of what is in the books. then again, if they DID leave all the info in there, each move would easily be 5 or 6 hours long ... not that i'd complain.

Oh I see Com...you're one of those people huh? j/k

I think the best part will be to see how the story is told in the movie. The FOTR was great....but made even better in the extended DVD edition!

That is what i'm looking forward to seeing.

Oh ok......I've always been a big movie guy though. That attitude is slowly starting to change towards becoming more into games. Well, one particular game anyways. I'm going to ask for those others for Christmas.

if i happen to get MA (mech assault, right) for christmas, i'll probably end up getting LIVE. I already have the broadband connection...(that I myself pay for, btw)

I'm not sure if I will see it.

I probably will, but I won't end up going out of my way to do so.

I thought The Fellowship Of The Ring was a fantastic movie, but irritatingly different to the books.
I just kept catching myself nitpicking, and didn't leave especially satisfied, even though I could appreciate the amazing quality of what I was watching.

I realise it would be impossible to have a film true to the book (no two people would perceive "Middle Earth" the same anyway), but my argument would tend to be that you shouldn't even try to make it into a film in the first place
*shrugs*
At least not with an epic masterpiece of literature like that.

I don't know, as I said it was a great film, but it's not Tolkien's Lord Of The Rings, its Peter Jackson's.
Still, I guess it's probably a case of - Will I see the film? Yes (eventually).
Will I enjoy it? No.

Com is right Thrift......if you're just going to nit-pick the movie and not enjoy it. You money and time could be better spent doing something else.

I think for Peter Jackson to even attempt to do the movies is a very brave thing. You are correct.....no one would envision things the same way. But I truly appreciate the effort that Jackson did in bringing us the story of what the book "might" look like. And I'm really excited to see his vision once again in The Two Towers.

Anyone seen it?
