Taken from www.warofthering.net :

The first official reviews of the new Lord Of The Rings film have begun appearing and many critics say it's better than the first. The Two Towers isn't officially released until December 18. Critics who have had sneak previews of the film describe it as "one of the year's best films".

One of the year’s best films? Cool, but what about the other films on that list?

07-12-2002, 01:56:32
Yes, I guess there weren't too many good films this year (at least I don't remember any). That phrase doesn't really mean anything.

They probably just want to cover their arse if it isn’t well received (yeah right).

Looking at the IMDb, I find Minority Report, Spider-Man, and Road to Perdition from this year, as well as Punch-Drunk Love, which looks surprisingly good, but isn’t out here until February.. Depressing, really.

I'm pretty sure TTT will be well received. It is more of an action movie than the first part and is therefore better suited for the broader audience. There's absolutely no indication that the public will like it less than the first part. You'll probably be disappointed too and Snapcase will absolutely hate it. Same as ever. ;)

And I have no reason to believe that TTT can't be better than any of the movies you mentioned. The only real competitor is Road to Perdition anyway IMO (haven't seen it but the critics really seemed to like it).

Bah, Road to Perdition looked unbelievably schmalzy.

Did you see it?

It's extremely nicely filmed and not astoundingly schmaltzy, but it's a bit too "costume drama soaring epic", not particularly deep and occasionally too clever for its own good. And Tom Hanks is a shit actor.

No, because of the trailer, which went from ‘hey, this looks good’ to ‘aagh, why did they do that?!’

Oh, and it also has the worst film music of any film ever.

Surely it can't be as bad as the LOTR film music :confused:
