Vic and I went to see Lord of the Rings: Return of the King last night at the Barbican Cinema . I really enjoyed the film; I thought it was pretty true to the book and one of the most spectacular films I’ve seen in a long time. Vic wasn’t so keen, and found it a bit cheesey, though I put that down to a lot of the dialogue being close to how it was written. The books are very much an epic creation, with lots of pre-battle speeches etc, and that’s reflected in the film.
Favourite parts of the film: Lighting of the beacons, the attack on Minas Tirith, and the arrival of the men of Rohan.
