Ringer Review - NAME


Date Posted: 2012-12-26
Tolkien Fan Level: 1
Film Format Seen? 2D 24 fps
Will view again in a different format? Yes

Ever since I first heard the news that they'd be making my favorite book into a movie, nearly a year ago, I've been counting down the days to the premiere. I was definitely expecting a lot because of the love I have for the book and the Lord of The Rings. When I read that Peter Jackson would once again be directing and Ian McKellen would be back, it only raised my high expectations. I waited in the cold for two hours on opening night (and then another 2 hours inside the theatre). It was worth it! I was blown away with the film, and it's only the first part! If I am going to say anything negative about it, it's that they are really stretching it out. By that I mean there are a lot of details that probably aren't essential, but I love details and I honestly don't mind extremely long movies. I am also very happy with the cast, both the new actors and the familiar ones. I, being a complete nerd (and proud of it!) will absolutely wait in the cold (wearing an elf costume) for the premieres of parts 2 and 3!
