The Glued Towers

Just finished a viewing of "The Two Towers" (after whetting our appetites with "The Fellowship of the Ring" yesterday). As I'd hoped when I made the entry before this one, the added footage did make for a much better movie.

The theatrical release held together just fine, but the additional material in the extended DVD version created a greater sense of coherence. The bits of back story we get in the extended release do more to flesh out Middle Earth and key characters. Great stuff for a long weekend with a luxury of time.
