If you want to see Lord Of Rings 3 book in advance, today I sold 220 tickets for it within 10 mins making 5 showings sold out (the rest of the tickets were pre-sold) so people arriving at 2:00 to see the 2:30 or 3:00 showing were disappointed to find that the earliest they could see it was 9:00 or 10:30...so do yourself a favour grab your parents credit card and book early!

think i'll just get the extended version on dvd, was a little dissappointed with the "basic" LoTR films, didnt really do the books justice, the extended didnt either but is miles better.

Eh? I don't think so...

I went last week and got great seats and my parents went yesterday arriving a min before the film started and they did too. But that's at Odeon..

The three and a half hours that is the last film isn't long enough for you? :rolleyes: Mind, I haven't read the books, so can't comment.

i've already been to see it. i went with my mates and we were the only people there in our age group. everyone else was board looking parents taking their kids. So we were cheering and slauting.

NO! lol, when i saw the two towers i kept annoying my friend next to me by saying stuff like
" hey they left out such and such"

the wost was in the Fellowship when it took about 10minutes for them to leave the shire and go to the prancing pony :cool:

i have read the books... i was just a bit younger then. perhaps in my sweet and innocent state i didn't notice the allusions.

However....

Which do you think was more homoerotic? The books or the films?

that was the only major part missed out of the Fellowship. and Peter did say in an interveiw that he was upset about missing him out.

i guess if he (peter jackson) actually had his complete own way the films would be incredibly long including literally everything.

The Two Towers extended vers. has some really nice touches to it which make it more than a fantasy book, but the tellings of the war.

ie: The King losing his son
