Hello World!

I went to see 'The Lord of the Rings' yesterday, after a good week of nail-biting when everyone else in the known world (including my sister, who has never read the books) got to see it before me.

It was certainly an excellent film adaptation and never slowed despite being three hours long. The cinematography was absolutely superb - New Zealand's never had a better tourist advertisement. The cast were equally good - I particularly loved Ian McKellen, Viggo Mortensen, Ian Holm, Sean Bean and Christopher Lee. (On a side note, who gave Liv Tyler third billing? She had about three scenes!)

An interesting side note to the screening was the fact that I saw it in "Gold Class." This means that I got to sit in a reclining chair with a footrest, and have food delivered to me during the film. I munched on potato wedges and filo pastries during the flight to the ford, and ate a chocolate sundae during the mines of Moria sequence. Definitely the way to see movies!
