The Two Towers was a shocker... I half expected it to be a funky/bad sort of 'shadow' of the books, like the Harry Potter movies. But, alas, no. I bought the movie (never happens, usually) and watched the three-hour favorite twice in a row, sitting on my butt and watching in pure bliss. I can't wait for the third movie, the Return Of the King, to come out.

But I must say that Treebeard was a little disappointing. I mean, they used a huge robot for him, and although they did use special effects, I wish he wasn't so obviously fake. (Don't get me
wrong--they did a really good job--but I do wish you couldn't notice so obviously that a real Ent wouldn't lack so much shadow/light fall... but overall, it was great!

After viewing "The Fellowship of the Ring" one may suggest that juuuuust maybe "The Two Towers" (as with fans of the book and first movie) will be the best movie of the year and of the trilogy so far. Peter Jackson has taken the best elements of the books and put them into logical movie chronology. The only dissapointment, as a fan of the book, that I found was the change of Faramir, though I can see why the change was needed in a way, and I'll get used to it. Maybe he could have found another way, but supposedly he needed third(frodo's showdown with the ring wraith)climax, which means three branches with three climaxes. For fans of the first movie, this shouldn't matter. Even if your not a fan of anything to do with fantasy, watch these movies, you'll enjoy them.
