just came back home from watching it... around 3:50AM odd here time
its pretty good... a bigger variation from the books than the first I thought but it is by far one of the better movies I have seen this year... expect a nomination and possible win for visual effects oscar for the team.. what a job...
I give a 5/5 *'s rating
highly recommended... oh and its long... but if you sat through the first one this one will be a breeze... pace is brisk...
Just watched it... didn't think it was worth the 3hrs 15mins in the cinema with a stomach ache... drank too much earlier while watching 007... for the 5th time... darn school trips
fights and effects were good... but not my type film + not a huge LOTR fan... although thought the first one was pretty good - this was a little 'all over the place'... i knew i should have read the book
speaking of drinking in movies
we have "the challenge" to drink a large drink during the previews and before the movie starts...
it means you get to the point of bursting towards the end of the film!!
about the movie, i wont see it as soon as its out, maybe a few days later, not a HUUGE fan, but im interested
Saw it on Wednesday. Absolutely fantastic, all of it. haven't read the book and didn't have any problems or anything following it etc.
I did notice several scenes which would benefit from watching the Extended Edition Fellowship, but nothing important. Just another YEAR! to the next one.
