Borklog: One entry

29 December 2003

We went to see Return of the King last night. Surprisingly enough, we had only one truly obnoxious group near us. There was a group of 7 or 8 kids in the back that were having a running commentary or something through most of the movie (luckily they kept their voices low so all that was heard was the sibliant whispering sounds. Which happen to travel amazing distances. Fortunately 3/4 of the movie was loud enough to drown them out) And I guess one of their number was a Trenchcoat Mafia wanna-be, who let out some forced laughter at (generally) inappropriate times, like in the very opening scene after Aragon strangled Gimili to death (or something like that), he let out a "ha ha ha ha ha that's funny" in the otherwise quiet/stunned theater. Other than that, it's a good movie, if a little long. The ending is kind of drawn-out, but the Hobbit 3-way in that big bed should raise a few eyebrows.
