I have held off reviewing The Two Towers until I had let it sink in. I even went to the theatre twice, because I fell asleep the first time. Well it's been over a year since then, and I still don't feel much for it. It did have spectacular viewing moments in it, but the whole movie just dragged on and on and on, building up to the one cool war scene.
The Return of the King is much along the same line as The Two Towers, much too long, but with wonderful cinematography in places. The second movie should have had an hour cut from the middle, with the third one an hour less at the end.
I do hope moviemakers don't jump on the bandwagon of making a movie long, just for the sake of being long, like the Lord of the Rings trilogy is. Over 3 hours is just ridiculous!
