I saw that movie today at 8am. Amazon paid for it. The theater was packed. :-) I arrived latish and had to get seats near the front of the theater where the screen barely fit in the field of view of my new glasses.

I was less annoyed, overall, with the changes from the book in ROTK than TTT. But, there were a couple of changes that I found to be quite annoying, as they were little changes that didn't chop anything out of the movie and changed some things I felt were important in the plot.

I can't wait for the entire thing to be available in extended edition DVD form. I'm not sure if I could sit through a marathon though. :-)

I'm betting this will be one of the most profitable movies in movie history.

Personally, I liked the movie. Granted, I have never read the books (though am going to start now) But still.... Raging armies of the undead were fucking sweet. However, I will say that some of the battle scenes were a bit tedious after a while, but overall a good flick.

I didn't dislike the movie. I, in fact, thought the movie was pretty good. :-) Yes, the raging armies of the undead were pretty interesting. I wish they had shown that Denethor had a palantir (the round glowing stone that Pippin used) as well, and that is why he was so broken. Sauron had forced him to see what Sauron wanted him to see.

The palantiri are not things created by Sauron, but Sauron has at least one of them, and they are all linked. Denethor, when he burned himself alive, was clutching his, and nobody afterwards had the strength of will to get it to show anything but his burning hands.
