I’m going back to watch the first Lord of the Rings movie tonight. I was one of these few people that didn’t know anything about the story (yes, the only self-proclaimed geek that hasn’t read the books), so when I went to see The Fellowship of the Ring about a year ago, I thought I went in with a pretty open mind. Well, it turns out I really couldn’t stand the thing. The story was good, but I couldn’t get past the (what I thought was) terrible post production in it. Most of the visual effects looked comparable to current Star Trek episodes and that’s just not gonna cut it for me in a movie of this scale. Anyway, my friend let me borrow his special edition DVD and I’m gonna put it in right now. The only reason I’m doing this is because I saw The Two Towers a couple of weeks ago and that was a much better movie.
