Why LOTR Sucks: Just When Things Were Looking Up

So far, I’ve been happy with the second movie. I’m thinking that Peter Jackson has it figured out now. There’s no Liv Tyler. We haven’t had that many montages or slow motion close-ups of people crying. Gollum has been a pleasant surprise.

But here comes a black rider, this time riding a dragon of some sort, and I’m reminded of how badly I disliked the first movie. I have to remind myself to keep an open mind.

Minutes Watched: 2.0:50.52
