Re: Thoughts about Filmmaking

Personally, I think the LOTR films also suffer from Jackson excesses, but perhaps not to the degree that Kong and the Hobbit films do. I found them overlong and many of the sequences needlessly overwrought and drawn out....especially the endless battles.

Re: Thoughts about Filmmaking

Jackson hacked up three of my favorite books, so with me and Jackson's LOTR films, it's pretty much urge to kill rising.

However, I will give him props for brilliantly making use of New Zealand and finding what perhaps are the most ideal locations possible, at least for many of the Middle-earth locales, and generally speaking, still images from the films are difficult to fault.

I actually fell asleep during the Battle of Helm's Deep in the theatre. (Just one sign of The Two Towers being the weakest film in the series: also worst offender for dwarf-tossing jokes, needless padding, Legolas-surfing-on-a-shield...)

To be fair, the point of Helm's Deep and eventually the battle on the Pellenor fields was that they took A LOT of time.
