Geek Blog: Two Towers review. I just loved the movie and I've read the book. Truth is that I can appreciate both. Someone in the long comment thread says that books are books and movies are movies. And the two don't translate well between them. I've read a couple of authors and screenplay writers who say the same thing.
The sheer spectacle of it all was what got me. The scenery and the incredible battles. The emotion of it all and Gollom too for that matter
Anyway, I've ordered the trilogy. Lost it somewhere in many moves and have the extended directors cut of the fellowship. So rock on, I'm hooked!
