The Return of the King
So, yeah. Being the giant Tolkien fanboy I am, I went to see the third Lord of the Rings movie at 12:01 am on opening night. Despite some setbacks, I did manage to see the whole movie.
In my eyes, at least, Peter Jackson has redeemed himself for all the changes he made to The Two Towers. (I'd link to my thoughts on that movie, but they got deleted by accident and no one had a cache of them.) The plot details were all right and beautifully executed. Almost all of the stuff I wanted to see was in there: the Balttle of the Pelennor Fields, the Paths of the Dead, Shelob, Mount Doom (duh), and so on.
I'll discuss some details below the spoiler barrier.
