movie // music // batshit about curtains

As it turns out...

LotR: The Two Towers is a much shorter, more enjoyable movie when you fast-forward through all the hobbit crap.

Which is interesting, because I remember a reviewer of the movies pointing out that P Jackson sort of shoved the main characters aside; the central characters of the story are the hobbits from the Shire, and we see Middle Earth through their perceptions.

Then it's probably a good thing that I've never actually read the books. I find the hobbits tiresome in the extreme ;)
