The Two Towers  DEC 19 2002

I feel like the only person in America that was disappointed by The Two Towers. Not completely disappointed, but only slightly. Most of it has to do with deviations from the book. It's not that I care that the movie differs from the book -- fairly significantly in some cases -- but I found myself caught up in watching for the differences and wondering what Jackson's motivations were for changing things around instead of just enjoying the movie. I was also a little bored at the very beginning and in the middle; the movie just lost me for a bit. I'm sure the inevitable 6 additional viewings at the theatre and on DVD (regular and extended) will clear all that up for me.
