LORD OF THE RINGS - THE TWO TOWERS
saw this sucker at the ridiculously early time today of 10:30AM..
(made even more ridiculous by the fact I had to wake up at 8AM to get there)
being a night person.. you're looking at some serious jetlag here..
of course, it made watching the film that much more fun, coz my brain wuz so scattered and random.. (like being stoned.. but FREE!)
but somehow, I managed to stay awake the whole 3 hours..
and unlike when I saw "THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING", I didn't have the sudden urge to duck out and pee, just BEFORE that kickass Gandalf / Saruman battle in that tower.. (and damn wuz I pissed off that I missed that).. nope, wuz glued to the film all the way thru..
and for those of you undecided whether you wanna see it.. here's my review..
go see it.. it's really long, but it's really trippy,
it's deep dark brooding / manevolent / yet epic and vaste in scope..
wont make any sense if you haven't seen the first movie tho'..
so, go see 1st movie, it's really long.. but it's also really trippy..
(or read those funny little books, by J.R.R. TOLKIEN)
oh, and it has CGI effects in it.. y'know.. shit done by computers..
but, it's actually really well done, about 1000 times better than STAR WARS EP2 - ATTACK OF THE CLONES
(which compared to this, comes off really wooden / 2 dimensional and inert..)
seriously, the CGI in this movie is insanely mindblowing in it's organic feel.. just watch the "actor" gollum.. dude's a farken trip, best acting in the entire film, the facial expressions, the shizophrenic conversations, the pathos.. the emotion.. it's a class act..
anywaze, overall.. kickass..
well worth the weird hour to see it..
rest of the day, really cool too..
just chilled out, funkin'.. laidback.. all cool..
