Loosing the Inner Fanboy
I have just returned home from a screening of The Return of the King. As a long time geek for Tolkein, compounded with an even longer time spent playing and writing role-playing games, I have to say that it was the best film that I have seen this year. Trying to separate this final installment from the other two is impossible and not enlightening. The way it was shot as one movie created a seamlessness that has me counting down to the release of the DVD so that my friends and I can blow a whole Saturday immersing ourselves. Yes, I know that is fundamentally pathetic, but I am comfortable with my geekiness.
