It's sad that it took me three viewings, but I finally love The Two Towers. At first, I was too pissed off by it to see its value, but I've managed to overcome my irritation. Now I see it as a stunning piece of art. A faithful representation of a book I love? Hell no. But without question a fabulous movie *based on* a book I love. A shame PJ couldn't trust Tolkien a little more. Meh. The day *I* get three hundred million dollars to make the trilogy, *then* I guess I can criticize the way he did it.
