TTT DVD (TLA's du jour)

..."TLA" being, of course, "Three Letter Acronym."

OK, I won't say much, because I have to make tomorrow's lunch, and anyway your friends list is already full of people babbling about the Two Towers DVD. But a few basic things need to be said about that, now that we've watched mostly everything:

1) "Tree-herder. A shepherd of the forest!" - possibly my favorite line delivery in the whole film. Dominic just sounds so stoked. Tree-herder! Sweet! YEAH!

2) Watched the preview for the extended edition and was immediately put out. Reaction was basically, "Hrm; well, now I want that one." Looks like they answered a lot of our complaints about the theatrical version, though, which is cool. (Huorns, for one; Faramir's back-story, for another; Ent-draught, for a third.)

3) We gave the film the MST3K treatment while watching it. This proved fun, and even provided some stuff I could've put in the parody, if I'd thought of it. "Where was Gondor, when my car broke down and I had to walk four miles home? Where was Gondor, when I was moving and had to carry five bookcases by myself?..."

4) For the ROTK preview, I think the word is "Squeeee!" I don't want to jinx anything (like Theoden kept doing at Helm's Deep - "Is this all they can conjure?" "No one's ever got past this wall; it'll hold." "I'm sure I'll live through the next movie." Oh wait...)...but I daresay they're going to Get It Right for Film the Third.

All right, enough random capitalizing. Need sleep. Goodnight!

I love that bit with Theoden. It's like, "Hey Teddy, just in case you didn't notice, they're KICKING YOUR ASS." And then he FINALLY goes to fight after like 3 hours and gets hurt two minutes later. It's good to be the king.

Hee hee. He kind of goes into mood swings about the whole thing, come to think of it. Before the fight it's "What would you have me do? We don't have any allies anymore. Where was Gondor? Where's the horse and the rider? What has become of us?", etc. Then during the fight he gets all confident for some reason, as noted. Then he gets his one wound and goes back into, "So much death; what can anyone do?" I can see why Aragorn was getting exasperated. :)
