Quick review: Return of the King

I've been suffering from insomnia again, so I put it to good use for a change last night and walked across the street to the movie theater after Alexander was put to bed and Paulette was doing some work for a client. The theater was sold out of tickets for the midnight showing of Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, just as I had expected.

However, there was a guy at the window who was asking the cashier if there was any way they (the theater) could resell a ticket that the guy had bought but now couldn't use. What good luck! I told him I'd be happy to take it, so the guy told the cashier nevermind, I bought the ticket, and caught the first showing of this long-anticipated movie.

(I guess I told you all that so that you wouldn't think I'm a total geek, like the guy who had "stood in line" since 9am that morning so he could get the best seats. Sheesh.)

So, here's my preliminary review of the movie:

THIS MOVIE HAD MORE CRYING IN IT THAN FRIED GREEN TOMATOES!

THIS MOVIE HAD MORE TALKING IN IT THAN THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY!

THIS MOVIE IS SUCH A CHICK FLICK, THAT EVEN WHEN THERE'S ACTION, AND THE DRAGON'S HEAD IS CUT OFF, IT'S BY A CHICK!

I'll post a more detailed review later. If I feel like it. As this is a chick flick, I reserve the right to change my mind about it.

PS: I say 'dragon' because I don't remember the name of those particular creatures. The pseudonymguls, or something.

PPS: I've never actually seen "Fried Green Tomatoes". But so what? You get my point.

PPPS: Oh, and I've heard it said that the Ditches of Madison County is a romance for males. I have only three words in reply: Sam and Frodo.

Nope - I think you're a total geek because of all the other stuff.

Madison County, I don't know --
But High Fidelity, now there is a chick flick for guys.
Haven't seen RotK. Won't probably.

I haven't seen Return of the King yet, but based upon your review, I will make it a high priority.

Now, if you want a real guy movie, try Mystic River. Sean Penn out Deniros Deniro.
