BTW. Yes I'm back from the cruise. Yes I'm tanned the color of asphalt.  Yes I'm alright with the cold.  The cruise kicked ass, thanks :) Ok back to the topic.

I saw it yesterday. It was GREAT!!

I've stopped comparing the book to the screen and just enjoyed the movie as it was. True there were discrepancies and some points where I said...HUH??? But overall it was just kick ASS!  They did pretty darned well with getting every character's story and it was often pretty funny!

There were also some places where the entire theater just went wild.  Some of my favorite stuff, without giving away the movie, are:

1: Legolas and the Horse
2: Legolas and the Shield
3: Gollum
4: Meeting The White Wizard
5: The White Wizard in the Castle at Rohan
6: 'You're Late'
7: '.........just don't tell the Elf'
8: "The march of the wooden Elves" as I call it. You'll see what I mean.
9: The East.

:)  It rocked!!!  I'm going to go see it again tomorrow.  Oh and watch for the part where everyone wants to start shouting 'Just KISS ALREADY!' ;)

Gah! Why can I not remember what the legolas and the shield thing is? I saw it last night.

Brennan and Bayne spent 15 minutes after the film just looking at each other and going "Dood! Helm's Deep!"  

My only complaint was the obvious CGI. Some of the effects looked almost like the old monster movies with claymation. Overall, though it KICKED ASS!!!

So, my list of things I want:

I want elf armor BADLY
I want ALL[/i]of Eowyn's outfits
I want a ballista like the one the Urak-Hai used
I want a big dragon-like flying beast that I can ride
I want a troll to open and close my door for me
I want a big eye made of fire. It would look great in my living room.
I want to be able to shoot like Legolas... or any elf for that matter
I want Eomer.
I want Shadowfax (when you just need to send paperwork to the Dark Lord... use a Shadowfax!)
I want bleach that will allow all of my whites to shine like the White Wizard's robes.
I want the Return of the King to come swiftly to theaters!!!

Did anyone else think that the Gollum looked kinda like Don Knotts or that guy that Snake Plisken rode in the convertible with in Escape from LA?

Steve Buscemi...yesss!!!!!! :lol:

Saw it last night...awesome!!!! Gonna see it twice more times!
had a few minor issues with it...f'r instance

1) Haldir was never at Helms Deep with the elves....tho it was cool.

2) When Sam says "We're not supposed to be here" after they are dragged to Osgilioth by Faramir...He's right! They never went! that whole thing with the Nazgul/rider never happened!
3) Theoden was supposed to be grey, and not rejuvinated... and how about the fact he took an orc spear to the shoulder and shrugged it off?
4) Aragorn never took a header off a cliff fighting the wargs.

other than that, it friggn rocked.

a little too heavy on the comic relief for Gimli, but great all around.

That scene is the one that gets shown on all the previews for it. He's riding down stair steps and hitting his targets.

Btw, did anyone get Legolas' and Gimli's final count during the Helmsdeep battle?

Saw it today,   :!:  12:30 matinee and the theater wasn't that crowded. I so can't wait for Return of the King.

"My only complaint was the obvious CGI. "  
I have to agree with that.  Legolas and the horse was awesome but it was so obviously CGI, that I didn't enjoy the effect.  Sometimes it was hard to follow the action because it moved SO fast.

Yeah and considering the battle at Helms Deep was a major arc and they devoted a lot to it, I think maybe they should have devoted more time to it, but then again they will release the extended version of it...as for the CGI- anyone remember Merry and pippin on the Troll's back? of course it's going to look fakey- that's a near impossible thing to make look real-when you consider the fact that there were maybe a couple dozen actors on the battle field in  reality, it's still pretty darn impressive!
