Catching up on my movie backlog, I've seen Daredevil, Old School, The Pianist, and the super-duper extended edition of The Two Towers. The first was stupid, the second was predictably okay, and the third was good but not a movie I'd want to see more than once. I'm not a LotR fan, so I can't watch the movies more than once a year without getting impatient. However, this extended edition of the second movie adds enough material to alter the entire viewing experience. Because the director was under contract to stay within three hours for commercial releases, this (nearly four hour) DVD edition is a better reflection of his original vision, and events are much better explained this time around.

It's still way too long for a movie, but at least it doesn't ooze pretensiousness like the Matrix trilogy.
