of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
Now, I must admit, I havent read the books and I actually didnt care if I saw the movie or not. Thats why I hadnt until now (mid-May). Well, Im glad I did, because its a fine film. I wasnt excited before, but now I am. By the end, I was ready for the second one to come out. Im pumped. No more indifference for me.
was slow (like the books, I hear). However, there were enough loud
noises and eye candies that I was able to keep my eyes open. When we
got to the overly-long party scene, I was ready for the long haul.
And what a haul it was. Seeing the film as tired as I was probably
didnt help, but I was counting each hour going by.
One more complaint I must make is in regards to computer-generated people. I know Ive already said this with "Spiderman," but it warrants repeating. I hate it. The technology, while good, is not great. Movements still look too unnatural. I know its too late for "LoTR," but please avoid it wherever possible. Get a guy in a suit for the big ogre and green screen him in. Itll look better, I promise. You just cant capture the subtleties with a computer. If you can tell its computer generated, then its not a very good special effect.
Aside from all the fake people, the battle scenes were great. They were fun to watch and really helped me get into the movie. With that said, I think Ive covered all the bases I want to cover. Just remember, this December brings us "Episode II: Attack of the Rings" or "The Two Towers" whichever they like better.
