What the hell is with this trilogy? Everyone raves about it, and on imdb it seems like most of the reviewers were getting themselves into some euphoric frenzy whilst watching it.
I have just sat through the Two Towers and I found it the most sleep inducing piece of cinema I've ever seen. I really couldnt keep my eyes open. Don't get me wrong- its incredibly well made, an awesome production. But its just so damn tedious. The story is not involving, it all seems a bit silly and theatrical, and everyone talks in the same monotonous way.
I borrowed the 4 disc sets off a friend - and the thought of someone sitting through 12 hours of new zealand fields and pointy ears, 4x12 hours worth of commentaries and watching another 12 hours of extras frankly disturbs me.
Am I missing something?
