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!

While I'm not entirely sure what 'MST3K' is, I'm reminded of the time my friend and I went to see it the second time in the movies - we spent the whole time doing that Lord of the Pants thing (he tried to take the pants from Frodo!), saying 'SNOG! SNOG!' at all the uber-slash-chemistry moments, and probably really pissing off the guy in front of us. Good times.

MST3K = "Mystery Science Theater 3000," geeky little TV show in which a few guys would show really bad movies (usually of the '50s sci-fi genre), heckling them all the while. Quite hilarious at times.

And, yes! We did some of the "pants" lines for this one too. My favorites are:
"If we let him go, he'll pants us in our sleep!"
"Give me your pants, horsemaster, and I shall give you mine."
And, of course, "Nothing ever dampens your pants, does it, Sam?"

I also whispered "Kiss him!" a couple times, mostly at Sam and Frodo, but my husband requested that I stop that. :)
