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!

Orlando Bloom counts as an LOTR icon, I'd say. :)

Return of the Frodo...heheh. So, ROFL could mean "Return of the 'Frodo Lives'"? (i.e., the "Frodo Lives" movement, wherein everyone started putting that slogan on their T-shirts and stuff...)

If you've not read the books, then you're in for some emotional shock. Most of it ends up okay, but not all of it...that's all I'll say...unless you want spoilers and all that.

Shhh! Don't stifle the icon muse! LOL ;)

I'm avoiding spoilers as much as possible. I do know a few things that happen, but mostly I'll be going into it biting my nails nervously (for the story, not the way it's being presented, I'm *sure* that'll be fantastic). I'll be sure to bring the Kleenex... perhaps I should purchase some stock as well?
