Dammit, Make Up Your Own Title

Why? Because I have no idea where this post is going to go, and I'm too lazy to write one at the end...

I went (got taken, because I don't have a car at the moment...) to the cinema today to go see Return Of The King. It wasn't bad, pretty good in places, I guess.

Yeah fucking right. It was absolutely, jaw-droppingly, überfantastically, 100%-ly, insert-more-superlatives-here-ly amazing. But really long.

Three and a half hours sat on my ass watching it. A fucking great way to spend an afternoon, if you ask me. Stuffed on popcorn and crispy M&Ms, all washed down with an enormous coke. No wonder I had to leg it to the loo about 2 hours into it.

It was a brilliant film though, especially considering I haven't read the books yet, so it was all new to me. The fight scenes were epic, and you could see just how much strife and chaos Frodo was going through as he approached Mount Doom and I'm sounding like such a geek, aren't I? Oh well, it's not often I get to wax lyrical like this.

Cinematographically (great word) speaking, it was a masterpiece. My favourite camera shot was when the soldiers of Rohan are leaving their city, and you see this huge column of riders meandering across the plain away from the city gate. It looks like over 5,000 horses and riders creating a huge snake, twisting around and filling up the screen. There's also a great aerial shot a little later when the Riders of Rohan (again...) leave their camp and head for the big city (don't ask me the name, I'm not that much of a geek). Various columns of riders come together to form this one enormous group, all at a gallop. It looks fantastic, and is awe-inspiring.

Anyway, that's about all of my Monday. Literally, that's about it, except for a nice little Italian meal afterwards and watching football on the TV since I got home. I tell you all (all, erm, 3 of you) that I lead an exciting life. I'm even going for a haircut tomorrow. That's the highlight, as far as I'm concerned. Joy.
