highlights of the film: (*SPOILERS!*)
-the love triangle between frodo, sam and gollum.
-HOT faramir. literally. his crazed dad wanted to burn him alive. i still do think he's cute, though.
-aragorn not only gets to be king, he becomes a dad. future dad, at least. oh and for the first time, he washes his hair for his crown. i bet legolas shared some hair care tips with him. hehe.
-eowyn gets dumped by aragorn, moves on and hooks up with merry, and gets to show some serious girl power with the head nazgul.
-legolas' acrobatic fighting skills against the giant elephants. i swear, some of the people inside the theater actually applauded after this scene!
-green ghostly warriors teaming up with aragorn.
-the ring's long-awaited destruction! and sauron's!
-horrendous battle scenes!
it feels a little weird knowing there won't be a part four anymore... can't decide which among the three is the best. they were all really great.
tacky toy of the day: we saw these cheap plastic swords at the dollar store called "sword of the kings", which look exactly like frodo's sword, sting. it actually makes a metallic clanking sound when you touch it. hehe.
