Here, in the center of the world, the big metropolis of the globe (of course, Costa Rica), it doesn't start until December 25th.
But it's not that bad, at least we got the extended editions on the theatre.

If you read the whole thing you would find out that I was sorry and confused for what I had said and then took a nap.

Oh, there's a special for ROTK on ABC tonight at 10:00P.M.

This newest edition of Newsweek has a special on the ROTK and it has some quite hilarious outakes to point out..... it's amazing that even with all that time they still make such hilarious mistakes..... it gives me a new respect for those guys...

I saw the end of the RotK special on ABC - that was the worst "Coming up - an exclusive sneak peak scene from the movie" scene EVAR.

I went the the theater last night a got the last ticket there for "Trilogy Tuesday", but because it was the last one my friend couldn't get one, so I sold it to some dude for like twice as much as I paied for it. I'll just go see them all seperatly because the extended editions are all getting played seperatly over the next few weeks anyway.

Waaauuww!!! I can tell you all- I believe ROTK is worth every penny posted in its making! The only thing that disappoints is the deletion of the Saruman scenes. But otherwise, all my expectations were completely outdone.
I saw the trilogy all at once, and it was marvellous to see the two first on the big screen again (although it was not the extended editions, which I of course have on DVD). The very instant I stepped out of the movie theatre, I missed the movie immensely.
This world will NEVER see any movie project bigger than this one, and to think that it's all over is just unbearable...

I couldn't see the whole trilogy at once, but I did go to the midnight screening of ROTK. The nazguls were the best part of the movie! Throwing those horses this way and that! This movie has just put a great ending to a great trilogy. I can't reccomend this movie enough! Go see it immedietly! It's the best movie I've seen in years, or possibly my life!!!

I'm going to see it this Friday, when the lines windle down a bit. I've seen the extended editions of the first two Lord Of The Rings movies over the last two or three weeks. Great stuff.

I'm planning to see the movie next Tuesday, along with the complete trilogy (our Trilogy Tuesday is one week later). It's great to see such positive comments about the movie.

Well there's still "The Hobbit" to look foreward to once the unpleasentness of a King Kong remake is out of Peter Jackson's system.

I think not. It's my job to disagree with you, mazaite. I believe that if Jackson really puts the effort into King Kong lokie he did for LOTR (and it sounds like he will) then King Kong could turn into one of the best remakes ever. Unless, of course, you have a problem with giant apes.

He wasn't offered the LOTR, he offered the LOTR to the North American studios. He first went to Miramax, then finally New Line.
Also, Universal cancelled the King Kong project because there were too many big movies that year (and a lack of faith in PJ, I assume). Once the Lord of the Rings saga became incredibly popular, they started discussing King Kong again.

I am also here (in the big metropolis of the world, of course Costa Rica)
I'm going to watch the extended editions of the 3 movies in a row, plus I get a combo and as many hot dogs and coke my body can require for that 10 hour sesion (or more?)
Anyway, I think I am going to cry in the last movie.

Didn't he just keep the Bag End set?

Also, stop with the "..."'s, they're really unnecessary.

If I ever see PJ, I'm gonna kiss him.
Miranda Otto too.
And maybe Billy Boyd.

I'll kiss Miranda Otto, although I would probably just will stay looking at her, and looking at her, and looking at her (half an hour later I would realize she was in front of me for only 3 seconds).

And yeah, he kept the Bag End set.

Wow. Return of the King was pretty amazing. I may not like it as much as Fellowship, but that'd be hard to do. Two things:

1). When that green light beam shoots up out of Minas Morgul, that is about the coolest fucking moment in the entire movie. The combination of the awesome lightning crackles, and the piercing cry of the Nazgul's fell beast is awesome.

2). That last smile from Frodo just before the ship leaves will bring you to your knees if you have even an ounce of emotion in you.

They better have the confrontation with Saruman at Isengard in the extended version. An judging on where the palantir is, they will.

Anyway returned from the movie a little over an hour ago, and I'm stil high from watching it. Best damn movie of the year! I thought the Battle of Helms Deep (or The Hornburg is you're a Tolkien fanatic) was awesome, the Battle of Pelenor Fields easily toppled it. The charge of the Rohirrim was quite a sight.

I missed some scenes (most of those Faze listed) but I'm sure they're in the extended version.

Loved the party in the Golden Hall with Merry and Pippin dancing on the tables and singing.

Damn, I have to go see this movie again soon. A solid 12 stars out of 10.

Maybe for people who have read the book but haven't seen the movie and don't want to know what got left out.

On Jonathan Woss, Ian McKellan said Chistopher Lee will be in the Extended Edition and it will come close to or be over 5 hours long.
Plenty of time for good scenes.  smile

I don't think I'm reading too much into LOTR when I say that there is some heavy white-supremicy being handed down from the movies.  Also Gay Hobbits.  But Tell you what, I'll bottle that acid for a later date.  Saw the move, it was ok.

These points come up again and again, so I'll try to address them:

1). The "Lord of the Rings" was in part intended by Tolkien to be the mythology of Britain, since Britain didn't really have a mythology of its own, like the Greeks or Romans. Tolkien based his stories on pre-existing Norse mythology and -- fancy that! -- the Norse are white. Does it come as any surprise then that in Norse mythology, the Norse are the good guys? That's not what I'd called "white supremacy". Besides, time and again the books stress that the Men in the employ of Sauron were tricked and seduced by him, not evil by nature.

2). I doubt that Tolkien intended for there to be any homosexual overtones to the Frodo/Sam relationship, seeing as how he was a devout Roman Catholic. The themes he was trying to emphasize between them were brotherhood, and more importantly, friendship -- nothing more.
