Movie: Return of the King (Lord of the Rings 3)

cover

To me these movies are just a means of reliving the glory of the books, and this is best of them for that. The essential events are shown, but they are far more exciting to me when I fill in all the blanks in the background story, the history of the characters, and the shape of their world. This final episode takes fewer liberties with the characters and story line than the other two. My only gripes are the small bits of unnecessary fiddling with the characters, and the awkward pacing of the ending. Not nearly enough to stop me from watching the extended version when it arrives.

  1. You actually STARTED seeing this on the 28th, finished on the 29th….
    also, climbing gym and Korean BBQ were highlights of the 28th!

  2. True. I’m never sure how much detail to put in the blog. These were good though – I may add them later.
