Hi, I went to the FOTR: EE screening in NYC and loved every minute of it (all 210 of ’em!) Regarding the new cut, it’s a lot more like the book than the original film was – funnier, livelier, and much more focused on the minutiae of middle earth. However, I wouldn’t say it’s better – just different.
They showed the latest trailer for TTT prior to the film, to the cheers and claps of all – including
Richard Taylor (who I was sitting one row in front of!) Seeing FOTR on the big screen one last time was a great introduction to this new version, and I can’t thank AOL/New Line/Moviefone enough!
