I saw the new Lord of the Rings last night and it was as great as I had hoped. Definitely the best of the three movies, except for the extremely sappy and quasi-homosexual ending. The ending wouldn't have been so bad if it didn't happen about 6 times. Seriously, there was about six times when I thought the movie was over and I was about to get out of my seat. I started laughing because it was so overly drawn-out that it was funny. How many times can they show supposedly brave and courageous characters look longingly into each other's eyes and say goodbye? Even the cool characters like Legolas, Aragorn, and Gimli turned soft. I thought the hobbits were going to start making out with each other at least 3 different times. The movie changed from awesome action-adventure for 2.5 hours, to a Lifetime afternoon special with midgets and swords (By the way, I just looked at Lifetime's website and their slogan is "Where Women Click," for some reason that is just really funny). Peter Jackson and everyone involved in the making of this movie should have read this essay before filming. Otherwise, the movie was great...but I reccomend leaving at the 2hour 45 minute point and you will be completely satisfied.
