Movie: RETURN OF THE KING


Am getting out of work early that day. Matinee prices, too!

*victory dance*

OK I'm done.

P.S. No I'm not. Did anyone else see Holes? And if so, did anyone else think of ROTK when Stanley picked up weak little Zero and carried him piggy-back up the mountain? I valiantly kept my mouth shut when watching it, but the similarity was crying out to me. Good movie, in any case. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Eartha Kitt as a gypsy; what's not to like?

I love "Holes". I bought it on DVD the day it came out. I thought that movie was so interesting. Didn't think of ROTK when Stanley carried Zero up. Though now that you mention it, it's an obvious one.

I thought the plot was quite interesting and clever too, with a fun dose of magic thrown in. Managed not to be too saccharine, for a kids' movie. It's the kind of story I hope to write someday, if I'm good enough.

*is insanely jealous* I don't know whether or not I can see it on opening day yet...

I loved the book of "Holes", but never got around to seeing the film. I should rent it one of these days. Thanks for the indirect reminder! ;D

You're welcome. :) I haven't read the book, but to judge from the movie it is probably most cool.

Don't worry; there are still plenty of tickets, at least around here. I think it's just us fanatics that feel the need to get opening day tickets.

"WHAT DO YOUR ELF-EYES SEE?!?!!!" Arggghhh, I just can't stand it!!!

You've got me beat on the matinee prices, but I'll be in the theater starting at 2:30 your time and will begin sending you pscyhic spoilers on the Elrond-Galadriel party line ... you know, just to mess with you...

The battle for waiting 13 days is just beginning...

Ai! Ai! Ai!

Ooh, we'll be in the theatre at the same time! (For about an hour of overlap, anyway.)

Dude, I'm totally blocking your psychic calls that day. All you'll get is voice mail.

Granted, after reading that huge long spoiler Q&A, I don't know how much is left for me to be spoiled about.

I went with my g.boyfriend and poked him in the side when that scene came on. As a fellow LotR freak, he agreed mightily (and then laughed, but he's used to me by now *G*) I thought I was the only one. LOL.
