    I heard it was great. Arun, you might be able to shed some light on this for me.

    Every review I've read so far has given it 5 stars apart from one which gave it 4. The review that gave it 4 stars had only one problem with it. That you're interested in the characters, but you don't really care about them or what happens to them.

    Is this true or is this guy talking pap?


    I can't wait to see it. anyone see the south bank show last night? They had plenty from the movie and it looks great! :)




    p.s. "better star wars"? "next George Lucas"? That will never happen. :p I refuse to compare them.

    I love the Black riders. I'll be interested to see how Jackson makes em look when Frodo puts on the ring.

    and do you think this thread needs a spoiler warning? Although we haven't seen the movie, most of us have read it...

    > black riders

    I cannae wait to be scared by the Black Riders again. I really seriously might wee myself when I see them. It's ok, don't worry, I'll stick each leg through the handle of a carrier bag and wear it over my pants under my coat. Though I may have to change my name to Russell.

    My stepdad used to work with this Irish guy... who they rather originally nicknamed Paddy... They used to go to the pub and Paddy would always wear a pair of wellies. The reason for this soon became apparent. He never used to go to the loo when they were drinking... what he would do is drink all night.. then when they were leaving he'd go to the side of the road, pull off his boots and empty the urine that had filled his boots...

    lol! My stepdad's a veritable mine of classic stories! The number of times I've listened to him telling stories of his poaching days and stuff.... damn, if I could I'd write a book about Chalkey! It'd be an absolute classic!!
