RotK: First Thoughts

Not a bad movie - it certainly didn't feel as if I was sitting down for 3 and a half hours until I tried standing up afterwards. For the first time in watching these movies, i was sort of sorry I already knew how the plot went. In several instances, it would have been more exciting not to know.

Gimli and Legolas were notably missing in the last 5 minutes, which mildly spoiled my absorption in the farewell sequence.

Merry and Pippin were done justice. I was happy. I would have appreciated Eowyn's big moment better if I hadn't been fretting her expression showed pure fear and not bravery. Oh well. Speaking of which, the Faramir/Eowyn relationship at the end was touched on lightly and appropriately.

I'm quibbling really. I did enjoy the movie! It finished well.
