The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
THIS IS MY FAVORITE MOVIE OF THE TRILOGY FOR SURE. best part of the storyline and includes amazing new characters and adds a ton to the plot. Directing is killer, soundtrack is wonderful and overall I would always recommend a good LOTR binge!
Seriously though. This is a amazing story. Love everything about it. BUT Jrr's freaking writing style, I just cannot! He literally details EVERYTHING! I'm a writer myself but even I think he gets carried away. Omg. There's a reason that the movies are 3hours long!
I love this movie. The whole series is awesome. Not for young children to watch as the creatures and battle scenes would be too scary but this is an amazing movie.
This movie is absolute perfection, I became hooked from watching the very first movie and i needed to watch the others. It's filled with a lot of action and adventure, i really love the story. I could watch this again and again and i won't get tired of it. The actors and characters are really amazing. I would highly recommend seeing then recommend watching the hobbit afterwards.
This is my favorite movie of the lord of the rings series! There is so much emotion put into this movie! As the story unfolds, you feel so attached to the characters you feel like you are with them! The music to the different races of people in the movies are stunning. If you have not seen this series, you really need to!
Tolkein is a genius and he is the entire reason for most of our greatest series. The worlds he builds is absolutely amazing and stunning. His stories will never get old, and Elijah Wood is so dang fine!!! it's traditional fantasy at its finest. When i imagine a fantasy world Middle Earth is it.
I enjoy the Lord of the Rings movies. They are not as great as the book, but as far as book to film adaptations: this one is pretty spot on. The sets and costumes were phenomenal. I have not seen better filming locations in any other movie thus far.
I find this middle film in the Trilogy to be more muddled and confusing than the other two. It is very difficult to follow and has a lot of characters that are poorly explained with little backstory. As with the first film, the score and the special effects are impressive but this story is a bit confusing and I feel its length. The first film in the trilogy is watchable on its own but this film has to be viewed after Fellowship to be enjoyable.
i love this movie so much, i suggest reading the books as well. If you're a nerd like me then you will absolutely love this movie. Its extremely long so you'll have to be able to sit through it all the way.
Wonderful movie. All the men in my family love this movie, and the women like myself don't mind it either. The acting is great. The soundtrack is perfect, and the special effects are pretty amazing.
