Thread: The Fellowship vs The Two Towers
[Edited on 8/2/2003 by Grondmaster]
TTT is in itself an masterpiece - the grandness of scale and the attention to detail in the battle scenes makes it something special. Parts of this movie sort of reminded me of a style of Western - the Indians surrounding the Fort and good old John Wayne Aragorn defending the gate while the cavalry ride to the rescue at the eleventh hour. Good fun escapism.
I am very hopeful that ROTK will be the ultimate. We will need to wait and see.
TTT 's ending in the movie was lame just escaped/released from faramir... that was so lame the changes to faramir.
But the begining blowed me away and set the mood for the movie, but it was a pety my expetations weren't coming true

TTT was a big dissappointment
The Two Towers was great also. But it would have been better if Faramir wasnt so twisted. but they are both neck and neck[the special extended edition of FOTR]
It would be better if the Hobbits Frodo and Sam went through the Old Forest, and met Tom Bombadil.
I did miss Tom Bombadil when I first watch FOTR, but when I thought about it, IMO it's kinda better that he wasn't in the movie because I have this image of him in my mind and I would hate it if PJ change it. It's even possible that Tom in the movie wouldn't be able to come across as magical as he is in the book.
Anyways, I do like FOTR better than TTT because in TTT there are some scenes which kinda drag sometimes, although Helm's Deep was great. Of course, TTT Extended Edition might be better though it will then be compared to the FOTR E. Edition.
Am I the only one here who likes the fact that Tom Bombadil wasn't in the movie??
In the book, nothing is pointless, but I feel that if he were in the movie it would only be filler. So I'm glad that PJ kept him out.
No you’re not the only one Ringfacwen, I totally agree with you. Although I was disappointed that Tom wasn't in the film, I understood immediately why PJ didn’t include him in the film. For the sake of making the movie, it just wouldn’t have worked (unless FOTR was like 5 hours long).
I'll reserve my judgement until I have seen the extended version of TTT. That extra half hour made a great difference to the first film, so it might do the same to the second.
Good idea Val, I think that's what we all should do, it will be interesting to see what new parts will be in it.
C ya l8tr.
...I can`t really comment because I haven`t got up to the part where they meet Tom. I
Do you get me now? I`m going to read the book until as far as I get, before ROTK comes out.
What Lord of the Rings movie did you like most?The Fellowship of the ring or The two towers?
As for chosing between one of them...I would say I like them both.FotR was better but TTT has great effects...

I will soon, hopefully........
Gayaiaion, that`s the best way to see the two parts of the movie, well I think so. The reason I think this is because, you don`t go comparing them with eachother and if you link them, you`ve got a whole, extremely long, movie.
If all 3 parts were linked up into one, I think I would just about survive over a nine hour film. I know what would keep me awake, ORLANDO/LEGOLAS..................
