    The graphics were amazing, but damn that shit was boring. After an hour and a half... I fell asleep. I'd wake up... still on. Wake up 45 minutes later... the movie was STILL on. I hope my date didn't get offended... he knows I fall asleep in EVERY movie. Maybe I should read the book instead....

    Minority Report fuckin sucked in the same way. TOO LONG
  5. Whaaaat... are you kidding me? This one had way more action and way more insanely impossible shots. The problem is, the first one wowed me so much, I was almost indifferent to the special effects this time... almost.

    Gollum is the illest shit I have ever seen onscreen. I've always felt that CGI characters are very unconvincing because they're too easy to tell apart from real ones, even though it's hard to put my finger on what it is that makes them look fake. Well, for the most part, Gollum had me convinced. He looks fucking REAL. At some points the CGness sticks out, but overall, I couldn't believe that he was a completely digital creation.

    Everything else was utterly convincing too... the tree people were nuts, and watching Massive at work was ridiculous. They were by far the best special effects I have ever seen in a movie, and I'm an SFX nut. The only unconvincing part? The water at the end... you can tell it's a miniature set from the size of the spray and the way it flows. Understandable, since simulating large bodies of water is one of the unattainable holy grails of SFX.

    But yeah, the movie lives up to the first, and again I can't wait for next Christmas. Beer,

    I didn't see the first one but I read half of the book and found it to be boring. I saw the two towers yesterday, the direction was nice but jesus christ was it boring, the dialogue and general story line put me to sleep. The only thing cool were the trees and the end fight scene.

    Here is the whole movie: Walking with boring talk, fight, walking with boring talk, fight, walking with boring talk, fight.

    Not worth the money, see it on video.

    this book was kind of the link from the first to the third just the middle stuff that has to happen in order to get to the bad ass stuff, but it still kicked ass and the third one is better than both of them put together i think.

    sorry for wasting your time.
