Thread: Is L.O.T.R, The Two Towers good? If so , Whats your favourite scene?
Anyway, in regards to your specific question, my two favorite parts are Gandalf fighting with the Balrog, and the breaking of Isengard. I thought these scenes were extremely well done, and in my opinion, were two of the biggest positives of the movie. Also, I would have to say that Gollum is my favorite character in the movie, just because they did such an amazing job with him (I think his character alone makes the movie worth seeing), but Gandalf is my favorite character in the LOTR story overall. I’m sorry your Mom won’t let you see the movie, but I think you are going to have to find a way to sneak it in(sorry Mom).
My favorite character was probably Gollum, which sort of surprised me, considering how much I disliked him in the books. The scenes where he's arguing with himself are really well done.

My favourite scene I'm not quite sure of because I thought the entire movie was so great. But if I had to pick it would have to be the opening sequence that begins with beautiful picturs of snowy mountains and then it zooms in towards a mountain side and you hear Gandalf's voice saying "You shal not pass...." and then you come in on the same scene that was in FoTR with Gandalf and the balrog on the bridge(just from a different angle) and when Gandalf sais "Fly, you fools!" and lets go of the edge you follow Gandalf down into the darkness an see him fighting the balrog.(wow that was a long scentence) The reason I liked that scene was that I think it was a wonerful way of begining the movie. I was so worried when I sat in the theatre before the movie started. How would they begin the movie, I thought, and pictured the worst ways they could have done it, like a summary of FoTR or a narrator telling us what had happened or something horrible like that... I was SO impressed by the way they had done it!
Gollum/Smeagol argument was also one of my favourites and Gimli's "toss me. But don't tell the elf."
As for favourite character that's EOWYN!! She is just amazing! I want to be just like her!! Miranda Otto does a great job! Gollum comes quite close though(Oscar for Andy!!!)
I haven`t seen L.O.T.R, The Two Towers because, my mum doesn`t like those sort of films. So I can`t see it down at the pictures!
What does your mom not like about it? Magic? Creepy gross things? Orcs eating orcs? The heavy body count?
I t was the BEST!!!
My favourite scene was...
Oh, I can`t belive it! I can`t decide it was that good!
Stonehelm, the things my mum don`t like, are the goblins, orcs, uruk hai and the rest!
But, me and my dad manage to get her to come! (After watching FOTR at home of coarse!) She said, once we`d come back from TTT, that she`d rather enjoyed it! (I knew she would!)
Thanks for all your replys!
They then move to the edge of the rise and see the Haradrim army marching through, oblivious to the fact they are going to be ambushed at any moment. That ambush was brilliant in that you usually don't get to witness an ambush filmed in such a way... you are either setting up the ambush, or you are caught in it, not an innocent by-stander.
I loved the Gandalf vs. Balrog scene that really set my mood for the movie, but unfortunately the other good part was at the end of the movie (Ents vs. Saruman & co)
the rest was varying from bad to ok.
as for gollum i really didn't like him! ughhhh he was so kewl in the books.
He still was to hobbit like for me and his voice dodn't sound very nasty to me
but maybe i was still trying to compare it with the book and i know i shouldn't do it because the books are just very different.
But the casting for Eomer was very good what an Eomer he was great!

Thanks for describing your favourite scene and for all your replys! (Good or bad.)
One of my favorite scenes is Smeagols discussion with Gollum, quite funny...
I hear ya, Aule. And I agree! Howard Shore outdid FotR on this one, no question!
and then how the King came back into his own mind right before our eyes.
I've seen the movie twice and I'm sure I will see it again. I will keep my eyes peeled for the technical problems of the scene. Thank you very much you have probably ruined it for me FOREVER now. HAHAAH
My favourite scene.. it's hard to say, I guess it would be every scene were Sméagol discussed with Gollum. That was just so cute and very, VERY nicely done. Not only the special effects, but the way he changed his facial expression and the voice! WOAW!
My favorite character is Aragorn. (duhh! he's so hot!!!)
I would have to say that the very favorite moment if at HD when the battle is about to begin, and is starts raining, there is a lighting and Legolas' eyes look really cool in that very second that's the best thing! (was that detailed or what??)
I totally agree with you grondy. I bought the exact same thing and I was not overall pleased with it.
Arwen, I`m really sorry, but Legolas Is the cutest! Aragorn comes second on my list! Don`t you think Legolas is cute? If you don`t, you`re MAD!!!
Oh, just like to say, I saw the film January, I loved it!! LEGOLAS, LEGOLAS, LEGOLAS!
