Thought you might be interested in this little piece that appeared in the Sunday Telegraph (Sydney), in the film reviews section. Looks like the film is being noticed. This is the first time that I have seen something in the reviews section for an unopened film, and I am quite a regular reader.
“A FEW of us were priveleged last week to see some excerpts from one of the most keenly awaited games of all time. I am happy to report that we’ll be in for a treat when this, the first of the trilogy, opens at the end of the year.
It looks magnificent, the special effects are truly special, and the flair with which the actors and director Peter Jackson capture the spirit of the book are a rare event.
In this world of hobbits, wizards, dwarfs, fairies and orcs, it is often hard to pick the actor, but the visual sensation is brilliant and, thankfully, the film preserves not just the mythological atmosphere but a sense of humour as well. Roll on the real thing, the real ring.”
