Anna, your enthusiasm is great and matches my own, happy to say. I got to see RotK last night at around 8pm. My friend and I left work early, took in a quick dinner and got to the theater an hour and a half before showtime -- and there were already 250 people in line for our showing! Fortunately the theater held 520, and after standing in line for another hour, we got in and found some terrific seats. Not too much of a surprise since here in Albuquerque all showings are apparently sold out for the next couple of days -- but we got our tickets two weeks ago (smart move). And I'm glad to say all the waiting and anticipation was worth it. Despite a few flaws, it's a great achievement and well worth the Oscar. [Btw, love the design and layout of your site -- especially the Eowyn pictures. Superb!]

Agreeing with you completely. The movie was simply brilliant. I'm also boycotting if it doesn't win. Shoot, my perfect world? It'd win in all the categories it's nominated in. I take the Oscars a bit too seriously ;)

Wow, Anna, you summed up my thoughts so well. I have lots to say about this movie and I'm going to blog later since I'm at work now. I can't wait to see it again soon. :)

I'm still in the "gunh. That was FREAKING amazing" stage, and I'm having difficulty forming coherent thoughts about the movie. Sam and Pippin SO rocked. And definitely Eowyn. *sigh*
Much, much goodness.

Hey Anna, I wanted to stop by say hello. I'm sorry for not commenting lately but welcome to the world of MT and I love the layout here. It's stunning. I haven't read your ROTK comments as I haven't seen the film yet but it's nice to see everyone online excited by it.
Anyway, I hope you have a Merry Christmas and get everything you want :)
