I have seen TTT more than 10 times, maybe 20 or more times. It is because I am a huge fan of LotR. :biggrin:
I have seen it twice now.
I have seen it once so far, but plan to see it again when it comes out on DVD. It was the best film last year, and will take some topping.
I voted for just once and that's enough, but only because I want the DVD experience to be as fresh as possible.
I'd love to go see it again, but I refuse to!
as for peter jackson appearing in the helms deep sequence of the two towers. this is nothing new as the director has always done a 'hitchcock'.
Good lord, even in "Meet the Feebles"? :eek:
just a few points to bear in mind!
it goes without saying that chris lee ought to have been given a knighthood a very long time ago. not being the sporty type i was astounded that men such as steve redgrave were awarded so.redgrave is so young and though i can accept he has performed well for his country what therefore should one give a person who has worked in the limelight for well over fifty years and raised the profile of british actors and talent internationally? a PEERAGE? yet again the establishment missed its chance to give chris this well deserved knighthood in the new years honours list.shame on them. as for peter jackson appearing in the helms deep sequence of the two towers. this is nothing new as the director has always done a 'hitchcock'. you can spot him in his 1996 film 'the frighteners' starring michael j fox. another point in mind is that chris or indeed peter cushing have never been serious subjects for programmes such as the 'south bank show' or other arts programmes.i think there ought to be a good prog on the working relationship between lee and cushing. on one of my meetings with chris lee a few years ago he told me that he missed peter very much indeed and didnt mind saying so! good man. thankyou for reading this.
Okay...I've seen it five times, and probably once more at least before it leaves the theaters.
You know, I still agree with Juan about the disappointment of Mr. Lee not being in the film enough.
But, after being with 5 different audiences, nothing beats that shot when the camera follows Saruman out onto the balcony to his Nuremberg-sized rally of Orcs and Mountains men.
It just leaves everyone speechless.
My parents, who both grew up during WWII and remember the news reels, gasped when they saw it.
I have seen TTT only once,but I must go and see it at least once again!
I've seen it twice and really that was essential because like others have mentioned it is such a loaded film and there's so much going on in a lot of the scenes that you really can't catch a lot of wonderful things the first time! (like Peter Jackson's brief appearance at Helm's Deep! Totally missed it first time, got it on second!Yay!) And even though I didn't love this one quite as much as the first (there are a few scenes in it that really puzzled me) I still am mesmerized by how well Middle Earth has been brought to life and the wonderful jobs the actors do of inhabiting their roles.
And so I do want to see it a third time, just like with the first! And mind you, I NEVER go to see films 3 times in the theatre (even twice was a rarity believe me)
Seen it 5 times as of today with my Girlfriend and caught something that maybe others saw the first time, or picked up on later as well that DEFENDS a very negative criticism that has been going around about TT,
on the run after receiving horses for their journey, Legolas is seen shooting an arrow in front of a horse and within the time frame it would have taken for the horse to trample him, Legolas floats under the horses neck and around onto the back of it. THIS IS VERY REALISTIC FOR AN ELF. Tolkien & Jackson BOTH even covered that when climbing the mountains during the "Saruman Storm" in Fellowship of The Ring when everyone else in the Fellowship is engulfed and overtaken by the snowstorm, Legolas FLOATS literally above it all.
After A LOT of bickering has been alleged regarding the realism of the Legolas character, I have constantly had to said to any any opposer that an ELF has INCREDIBLE dexterity and would EASILY pull of many of the stunts and moves such as the "Shield-Slide" down the stairs, so should the opportunity arise many ages ago as it does in LOTR, or in today's skateboarding/ snowboarding world. People say this is out of place in the Two Towers and it is the main negative focus of the film along with the unfair Gimli criticisms, I say that THEY who attack those two characters need to re-examine the place they are in, as they do not know it well as we who have been here long before the movies do.
Oh I hope they put on the DVD what they took out of the film.
We have to wait nearly a year before the DVD comes out.
And then the USA gets it before us:(
Two Towers - like Fellowship - isn't a film you can just see once (considering that you like it, that is). You need to see it once just to see it, and then again to take in everything you missed the first time.
I'm still picking up things in Fellowship that I haven't seen, or noticed before - the films are so densely layered with detail. I can't wait to see it again! I wish it didn't cost so much to see a film, though...
I have seen it once, but I plan to go again I liked it.
And then again after that. :D
