I finally saw “The Two Towers” – the second in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Great to see everything come alive. Came back and read the summary since it was a year ago that I had last read the book. This is film-making at its best. The Helm’s Deep battle is quite amazing. Maybe it was the sound in the theatre but there were times that I couldn’t quite understand what a few characters spoke (Treebeard and Gollum, especially). Its another long wait for the final movie.
I still feel that the book is better. It captures the nuances and the actions of the characters better. Though now, I feel the book-movie makes for a terrific combo to understand the depth of what Tolkien constructed.
