Let's talk positive

First off, thank you everyone for your supportive comments in this morning's entry :) I think things will work themselves out eventually, I'll keep you posted. Today I pointed my nameservers toward the new website, I've already lead my forum members to the new phpbb forum (it's soooo fast!) and they're handling it just fine. I'm optimistic.

A few nights ago I went to see Lord of the Rings, on opening night, but I never said anything about it because I had to talk about my life in my journal. From one perspective, I feel like it's not important to post a full review of it here like I did for Star Trek. I guess the vibe I get is that everyone already has an opinion about the Two Towers, they're either going to see it NOW or are so sick of the hype they never want to see it, so what's a review from me going to do? With Star Trek, a lot of people I knew didn't even know it was coming out, and the ones that did didn't think it'd be worth anything, so in a way my opinion got to actually do something.

I liked The Two Towers a lot, it's a much more emotional, human story than the Fellowship. It's not as exciting though. Not as scary and edge-of-your-seat, not as dark and gloomy, all that. And it's got funny parts... how many funny parts were there in Fellowship? Jackson seemed to work towards squelching all attempts at humor in the first movie, I wondered why Gandalf's endless sarcasm towards Pippin were toned down, they made him a much more human character. In this movie we actually get to laugh, which is nice, Golim is a funny fucked up little creature and we get to make fun of his misfortune just like we do in the books.

I need to read the second book again. It wasn't my favorite of the series so I probably skimmed some sections and people keep telling me about differences between the book and the movie that I'm skeptical about, I think they're on crack. But oh well.

I will say that the ents, which are some of my favorite characters, just rock in this movie! I knew they would :)

Anyway, that's my deal on that movie, I'm going to take a bath and go to sleep now.
