    I haven't seen the first one yet, but I applaud the director for convincing the studio NOT to do a "here's what's happened so far" at the beginning of this film.

    They actually went back and shot some new scenes to add to this movie, after the first one was such a hit.

    Any movie that doesn't treat the viewing audience like they're mindless drones deserves applause.

    I watched the 'making of' also and it was awesome. I loved to hear all the stories that happened behind the scenes. These guys bonded pretty well. After seeing this special, I'm even more excited about LOTR:Two Towers. The previews were so wickedly awesome.

    Looks like there will be a lot more action, and Legolas will have more screen time. I don't think I've seen Orlando Bloom in anything else before, but he is the pefect cast for Legolas. I do have to say that I find "Legolas" the character more attractive than Orlando Bloom.

    Thanks Jodaar for that cool animated picture of Legolas.

    jodaar, only 6 times?? *shakes head* I think I've read them like 20 times...

    Ah well, the books are so much more than the film(s), but I realise that they needed to keep the storyline going sometimes at the expense of changes to the original story and removal or simplification of characters for example. Nevertheless I was delighted to see how the landscape and locations had been created just as I envisioned them (and really quite better); and the casting was overall terrific! Although I really wish they had made the film maybe twice as long so that all the characters actually would have had time to say something instead of just focusing on the action and a few characters (who really didn't say much either).

    Still I'm really looking forward much to TTT!!

    I'm hoping to slog through The Two Towers in time to watch the movie. The books just don't really connect with me.

    I enjoyed the first Peter Jackson movie, though. I thought it was outstanding.

    I just realized it has been 25 years since I read the trilogy. My teacher wanted us to do a book report on something that was at least 200 pages long, so I grabed The Fellowship of the Ring... and ended up getting hooked on several thousand pages of reading.

    I've not seen either movie though. Sounds like I should.

    I saw FOTR(almost looks like FORT ) and loved it. I cannot wait to see the second one, but would wait until the second week after release as to not cram in like sardenes with the fanatic crowd. I hope Santa brings the box set of books and special edition DVD set for Christmas. Maybe I can finesse Santa into bringing the DVDs tonight!
