What we need is a few good taters.
What's taters, precious? What's taters, eh?
*Po-tay-toes!* Boil 'em, mash 'em, stick 'em in a stew... Lovely big golden chips with a nice piece of fried fish.
[Gollum makes a noise of disgust while sticking his tongue out]
Even you couldn't say no to that.
Oh yes we could. Spoilin' nice fish. Give it to us raw and w-r-r-riggling; you keep nasty chips.

One section of credits is for the "Hammerhands" (presumably for carpenters). This is a reference to the name of the "historical" founder of Helm's Deep, Helm Hammerhand. Also, apprentice builders are known as "hammerhands" in New Zealand. See more »
Seriously, I never thought a movie could get better than the Fellowship of
the Ring, but it did. This movie should be #1 on the IMDb top 250. This
movie, as long as it was, captivated me from start to finish, and those who
are not entertained by this movie can not be entertained period.
Yes, I have read the book. Any chapters cut out at the end of books III and
IV will probably themselves in the next installment. If you haven't noticed,
the beginning of the Two Towers was actually closed the Fellowship of the
Ring on the big screen.
Gollum was a CG masterpiece. He added some light to this incredibly dark
movie. At the same time, there are areas where you feel sorry for the poor
guy, or just want to kill him. Smeagol was probably the most diverse
character I've ever seen.
Elijah Wood put on a better performance than he did in the first movie, as
did Sean Astin. Ian McKellen, who captivated us in the last movie,
captivated us even more in this one. Viggo Mortensen, John Rhys-Davies, and
Orlando Bloom made a great trio. They laughed together, cried together,
prospered together, and suffered together. This trio gave life to Aragorn,
Gimli, and Legolas. Eowyn expressed her emotions clearly through Miranda
The music need not be discussed. Its greatness speaks for
Favorite Scene: The Battle of Helms Deep. Possibly the greatest scene in the
book, 50% of the trailer, and action packed climax to this beautiful movie.
The movie, like its predecessor, fails to bring us closure, but that's ok.
Closure will come next year. I look forward to the Return of the
The Two Towers is now my favorite movie of all time.
The scale is broken. 10 is not a capacity sufficient enough to hold this
movie... my movie... my... precious...
