I can hardly wait for the Return of the King to open next week. All of the reviews, including Stephen Greydanus’, say this is the best of the three. It could be the one to get the Best Picture and/or Best Director Oscars. More than that, it brings Tolkien’s story to the height of its cinematic portrayal.
Usually when there is a movie I’m eagerly awaiting, I will go to the earliest showing on that day, but with my magazine deadline and the length of the movie. I’ll have to wait. Hopefully, I can go next Thursday night. I can’t wait. I can’t wait.
