The Two Towers
Uh oh. My friend Ron scored tickets for a midnight showing of The Two Towers. Yes, that means I won't get home until something like 4 A.M. Yes, I think it's worth it. I knew about this earlier today so I've given my office notice that I may not be in by 9. I'll save myself some time and give it a 10 right now. Peter Jackson is genius.
Update: Well, it was wonderful. I'll probably watch it a few more times before it leaves the theater (which won't be for months I'm sure). Gollum was particularly impressive -- especially because they had so much to lose if it was done poorly. Once you've had a chance to see it yourself, let me know what you thought.
