I'd forgotten how funny it was.
i just keep singing 'you are everybody!' when merry comes on the screen.
I don't like you stupid people
Wearing expensive clothes
that doesn't even make sense. oh, right, lost ....
still, the lord of the ring films are great, even though the acting is like -34 out of 10.
it's like an extended episode of Garth Merenghi.
You just compared Tolkien to Garth Merenghi.
I bet that was what he was like in real life too. The total, total knob.
in the title sequence, when the female doctor appears for the first time?
Garth Merenghi does look a bit like Viggo Mortensen if Viggo Mortensen was reincarnated as a bank manager.
beaten by the Return of the King, in the greatest films of all time.
Its set a standard. Watching it at the pictures as an eleven year old was probably the greatest three hours of my life at the time.
Return of the King should end about 12 hours before it does. Rarely have I come out of a cinema swearing so loudly in front of children.
I think a grand ending is expected, after 9 hours of spectacular film. What else were you expecting? A cliffhanger or something?
and there's masturbatory. I want to see a big finish, but I don't want to see Jackson spunking Tolkien's 'legacy' all over the screen in an orgy of 'oooh, he's the next Homer, the next truly great storyteller, the true heir to the Icelanders and their Sagas' etc. etc. etc. etc.
Tolkien's legacy is piss-poor fanfic and Robert Jordan's sodding Wheel of Time. If he were alive today I'd find him and shove something hard up his arse.
directed at the lord of the rings films.
they're just bloody good fantasy films and i enjoyed them all and i'm not at all ashamed
Loser. I'm off to watch Amelie.
i wasn't making a point. i wasn't trying to be anybody.
neecho's mah buddy!
I was being in your camp. I was holding the neecho flag. I was sitting next to you on your chair and laughing at the opposition. I was sitting on your knee with my arm round you. etc.
I've never been able to stand the books.
i thought the films were overcooked, overhyped and a waste of cumulatively HALF AN ENTIRE DAY. Why are films so long now? i feel like if i go see Spiderman 2 i'll want to call my parents half way through and tell them there's no need to panic.
their son has gone back in time 3/4 years!
whatever. Is it Spiderman three already? i don't really watch films.
came out in the summer i think, just was trying to be witty.
that orlando bloom is the worst actor ever and does just that one face throughout the film and it is effing hilarious!!!! and god that frodo is a fool! it's so funny!
Because these films are based on stupidly long books?
For other films being long the reason is apparently that DVD lengths (often extended cuts) has trained audiences to accept far longer films.
of the theatrical cuts, because the DVD cuts are even longer. the DVD cut of Return Of The King is like 4½ hours or something.
anyway, LotR: can't be arsed with the books, and probably never will be, but really enjoyed the films. yep.
the big monsters and stuff look as cool.
is possibly the most annoying film character of all time.
