Just got home from the 12:01 AM premiere showing of Return of the King. This finished up seeing each of the first two extended versions in the theaters the last two weeks. It was great. Even getting there an hour before the movie, we got crappy seats (way up front). But I got used to that after the first 15 minutes or so.
In any case, as expected, it was great. All three were. Can't wait for the extended edition of this one.
As usual, a few things were left out or different from the book, but no matter, it was very true to the spirt of the book, and it was just an incredible movie.
Thanks Peter Jackson! Great Job!
And now, I only have time for about 3 hours sleep before getting up for a job hunt related meeting, so I'd better get to bed. I'm exausted!
