According to the Drudge Report (http://www.drudgereport.com/rings.htm) Lord of the Rings: Two Towers has been leaked to the internet. Beware though, if this is true and you download it, AOLTimeWarner will "impose strict criminal penalties against anyone and everyone that downloads it". Oooh I'm scared now.

Update: It has now been confirmed that the file(s) are fake.

I just had a look on Limewire, and it was there.

The Executive thinks the film isn't finished yet. I agree, they usually finish them at the last moment. So it might not be a complete/finished version. it could also be 1gb fake! :)

I'm not actually going to download it. The first film was dull enough, who needs the sequal?

AOLTimeWarner is going to arrest China?

Bullshit. The second book was by far the dullest. I anticipate an hour and a half of two bobbits (or whatever they're called) trekking across a stony desert filmed from various angles.

Er... and all the battles? Or did you skip those.

Nah, the second half will have battles. But the audience will be sleeping from all the "Look there's gollum" action in the first half, so they'll miss them.

This just in. The film has not been leaked. It's a bunch of junk files on Kazaa. What a suprise.

The second book is heaving with battles and wierdness, it won't be a boring film at all. I just wonder how they're going to visualise the Ents on screen?

Oh yes, that was an astoundingly boring part as well.

Scabby have you actually read LOTR, or are you just ranting for the sake of it? :)

Scabby? Read? I thought he listened to the Audible Books version... He is so musically focused, it seems. ;)

Does he have a computer text - voice translator for this site then, seeing as he can't read?

Oh god. I can imagine an audio books version of LoTR, with music by Yes or Hawkwind or something. :vom:

I have read it, once all the way through age 10, and once up until the really, really boring part of book 2 (the ten-chapter trek through Mordor, where I almost gave up the first time too) when I was 14 before giving up. The man has no sense of narrative pace.

I know what you mean but try it again now you are older. When I read it again age 23 it was a lot, lot better.

I read it in August and got through the whole triology in 2 weeks, I couldn't put it down, it was brilliant.

Actually, the BBC radio play is far superior to the film, so far.

what's the point in talking to snappy, he's very happy with his opinion formed when he was 10, let's leave him with it

oh i forgot, at 14 he was critiqueing tolkiens' narrative pace :lol:

best age for it. At 14 I didn't have the patience to get through boring books.

A boring book = a bad book as far as I'm concerned.

all we're saying is that at 14 you don't know shit to judge it

having goen through 13 years of life since that age there's no way i'd try and defend the things i thought then

They should have tried grouting them properly.

It might be boring, it might not be.
Gotta say at 14 I skipped most of the Mordor journey,
however the BBC radio version meant i managed to get to the end :)

Then again, what you think now is pretty useless too.

I was shit at judging it stylistically at 14, I admit. Not pace-wise, 'cause that's the easiest thing to graps, but I quite liked the writing style.

Turns out it's the Swedish translator who has increased the adjective count by about 500%. I recently read a passage in english and it was unbearably haughty stuff.

I find classical music boring too. Does that mean that it's bad?

No, it's just not my taste.
