    That web page is just plain stupid. The creator of the page makes it blatantly obvious that he hasn't read any part of the books.

    This is no different from a newbie bassist giving a poor review of a Fodera because he played a Rogue and heard that Fodera was overpriced from a friend that read a review on BGRA.

    17. Invisible Implausibility.

    Every time Frodo or Bilbo went invisible with the ring they should have also gone BLIND. Your eyes cannot function unless light is reflected off the cornea. If light passes through it (as must be the case with invisibility) sight is no longer possible. Also, rings do not turn you invisible.

    Rationalization for violence.

    Why is the black octopus creature painted as the bad guy when it attacks, when one of the fellowship had clearly been throwing rocks at it?

    The Score.

    The background music wasn't nearly funky enough for me.

    LMAO :) :)

    i understand it was a joke, but it was still a pretty lame one... is this guy even aware that the movie is based off books written 50 years ago? most of it is just ignorant and borderline sexist and homophobic
     
  14. I challenge anyone to think of a better Bilbo than Vin Diesel!

    You really like the books, huh?;)
     
  16. :D that was pretty funny.

    Anybody else really looking forward to the Two Towers? Now that it is less than a week away and the previews are starting to show up on tv I'm really itching to see this movie. From what I can tell from the trailers, and from what I've heard, this one will be even better than the first.
