Dead Dog Cat

Oy, what a morning

Saw Two Towers last night. Visually stunning, though there are more differences from the original than were immediately evident in the Fellowship film. I thought that the interpretation of Gollum was brilliant, and I loved the Ents. As we stood in line for the 8PM show at Ontario Mills (a place which has 50 screens between two facilities in the complex), there was a young man ahead of us who had already seen the film at midnight Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. We went much farther afield than I had expected because all the closest theaters had sold out all tickets for every showing opening night. Good for them! Now to find the patience to wait until next December for the final third of the saga....
