    The movie has a 45 minute battle scene! If you think I can survive that amount of badass AND be coherent, you're insane!!!

    But I'll try. If I live, and don't pass out or spray my manjuice all over the row in front of me and get thrown in jail, I'll post.

    I am going to see it tonight/tomorrow at 12:01am here in Boston! I cannot wait, first me and a buddy are going to a bar drink, and listen to VH on their jukebox, and then off to the Two Towers (or maybe for those people who think it is about 9/11... the two objects in different parts of Middle Earth that, where evil resides, which eventually gets their asses kicked in the third and last installment of the series)... And then 4 hours later back to work!

    Well I saw it last night... and what can I say... Absolutely amazing! Even moreso that I am awake at 7:18am when I got home at 3:30am!

    What did you guys think? And Gollum really fit in well, and didn't have the "Jar Jar" effect that Star Wars has now.

    Well, I just got out of jail.

    No, just kidding. I was too tired to post my review, and then I forgot about it.

    Basically, I liked it. Not as much as the first one (I don't find the need to watch it 20 times like the first) but it's still good and solid. Oddly enough, it seemed like a lite comedy.

    The Gollum/Smiegel things were funny, and Gimli did a lot of one-liners.

    And Legolas cemented his role as chief badass in combat. I especially liked the haymaker (I think that's what it was called?)

    I couldn't resist and saw it. What to say? Phenomenal! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] As long as Peter Jackson doesn't pull an "Ewok" on "Return of the King", this saga will be the all-time best of our time, IMO. The CGI treatment of "Gollum" sets a new standard for an all CGI character. The battle at Helm's Deep-let's see somebody top that! Legolas=badass! Aragorn-I feel sorry for Viggo Mortesen being lumped as a hunk these days, but his character is still great and he plays the role perfectly! My thoughts are so jumbled right now I'll probably have to post a second review (most likely after I see it again this weekend!)

    Well I saw it last night and I loved it. Thought it was an amazing movie!

    Having said that, I didn't think the character Gollum was THAT MUCH more advanced or amazing looking than the character Jar Jar in Star Wars (OK, I admit, LESS annoying, sure!) But to suggest that the CGI for Gollum was worlds better than the CGI for Jar Jar (and Yoda in Episode II) to ME is ridiculous!

    I didn't think this CGI for Gollum was any better (or worse) than the stuff found in Episode II!

    Maybe that's just me though. Or maybe that's because I heard SO MUCH hype before-hand about how VASTLY Superior, the CGI for Gollum was, that by the time I sat down to actually watch it last night, I was "overhyped" for it and far from blown away.

    (Don't get me wrong, the CGI WAS excellent. But in my opinion not VASTLY superior to the stuff found in Episode II.)

    Just my opinion.

    All the same I LOVED The Two Towers and plan on seeing it again!

    You rock Peter Jackson~
