Viva Peter Jackson!

Went to Return of the King yesterday. We were going to go on Christmas Day, but due to the enormous length of the movie, it was logistically impossible to do it then. We got to the theater 45 minutes ahead of time, and the line was already half way around the block.

Well, good! This movie deserves a record-smashing box-office. If it doesn’t receive best picture and best director Oscars this year, then Hollywood should be burned to the ground.

Peter Jackson did an amazing job of putting this monumental movie together. He kept the many pieces moving seamlessly from one scene to the next. The staging, of course, was spectacular. The three and a half hour length seemed like a mere hour.

It’s not often you can call a movie breathtaking, but this one makes the grade.
