Last Friday I went to see Return of the King with my brother. I liked it, but 201 minutes is way too long for a movie, especially when they pad it with 6 or 7 previews. I thought the book went on for too long after the climax, and the movie faithfully represented that. It sounds like I didn’t like the movie, but I actually thought it was awesome. I’m really impressed with how faithful the movies were to the text. Can Peter Jackson direct Episode 3?
After seeing Return of the King I headed up to the Tree House to catch the end of Sarah Allen’s set. I got to listen to a few of John’s songs as well. They both sounded great, despite a low hum in the speakers. I’ve said it before, but I hope Sarah starts writing more original stuff.
Also, I’d like to thank Jason Vertucio for hooking me up with a ton of dorito picks!
