Three sentence movie reviews: Lord of the Rings Extended Versions of The Fellowship of the Ring, Two Towers, Return of the King
Really, there are three movies, so there should be nine sentences, but they all blurred together into a very long movie. I found that a lot of the bonus content was not necessarily necessary, but was mostly interesting. And I realized I hadn’t seen these movies since their release (it was a Christmas activity with the brother for three years running) so I had mostly completely forgotten the story, which made for pleasant viewing as it seemed new to me.*
Where watched: Laurie and Burt’s house.
*Also, I had completely forgotten the huge amount of eye candy, which made for a pleasant addition to eleven hours of viewing.
Yes, there are a lot of fine looking actors & actresses in these films. Fun fact: "Return of the King" is the only Best Picture winner I won't be watching again because I've already seen it so many times (I could get away with not watching "Chicago" again but I don't want to).
Wow! I did some of the same when I read the books. I just had to skim and scan over some of the marching/battling/etc. scenes.
