I like Gollum. I mean I hate him, but I like how Peter Jackson portrays him on screen. He’s cowardly and vicious and craven and completely possessed by his desire for the ring. The computer generation is a bit dated, close to a decade after the fact, but at the time it was considered top notch (Especially when compared to some other visual effects from the movie, that weren’t so well done. Notice, every time a group of humans and hobbits are walking together, especially in the distance.)
We’re twelve minutes into the movie, and haven’t seen a single montage. It must be some kind of miracle.
