maaaaaa-gnificent achievement. A truly awesomely enormously fantastically
big and yet, at the same time, a very detailed movie. Big in the
sense that there's a cast of millions in CGI terms, and small in
that the emotion really does sock you in the kisser at times, and
especially in the final scenes.
this movie is one of the most decorated of all movies in history
is deserved, although it might also be due to the fact that the
awards nerds were compensating for their hesitation in giving awards
for the first two in the series, presumably because they feared
that the last one might be all 'mucked up' and make the awards people
we know today, it wasn't mucked up at all.
movie truly lives up to expectations and any person who is disappointed
by this movie is probably hoping for too much in life.
only quibble is that I never did quite buy into the fact that the
Hobbits were as small as they were supposed to be. I know they made
great efforts to make them look small compared to the horses etc,
but the close ups just didn't work for me. But that aside, everything
is as close to perfect as cinema can be.
