Viggo Mortensen is one of the old school members of Hollywood that has been part of the production of movies since the early 80s. Pictures of Viggo Mortensen at work and play can be found on Gossip Center with pics of Viggo Mortensen at the beach.
It’s out on Blu-ray today, and here is a trio of extended edition clips of all three “Lord of the Rings” films.
Starring Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Viggo Mortensen, Orlando Bloom, Liv Tyler, Cate Blanchett, John Rhys-Davies, Sean Bean, Sean Astin and Andy Serkis as Gollum, 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy ('The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring,' 'The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers' and 'The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King') follows the adventures of the Hobbit Frodo Baggins and his perilous journey to throw back the magical One Ring into the fires of Mount Doom.
I saw it. I am not sure I'm a real diehard fan of the Lord of the Rings. I want to be.. don't get me wrong.. but there are just some things that I don't get. I think it's a guy thing.. and because I'm a girl I just don't enjoy these kinds of movies. Now, if you want me to tell you my favorite part of the movie I'm sure you'll all say, "WTF is wrong with this chick!" lol
I do have two complaints though. The previews lasted 30 minutes!!!!!!!!! Just when you thought the movie was going to start they started showing more previews and ads. I just don't get it. The other thing was that it just dragged on so slow. I guess I'm a spoiled movie fan who loves fast paced, get to the point and move on with it kind of movies. I swear they could have done it in 2 hours instead of three.. but hey who am I to tell them what to do.
If I had gone to see this at midnight last night like I had planned to do, I probably would have fallen asleep. (Don't hate me or bash me, I'm being totally honest.)
Now, another thing.. yea yea shut up. I think I have a thing for guys with dirty stringy hair, beards and the kind that look like they've not bathed in a couple weeks! What? Who? Huh? Well you know how I've got this Captain Jack Sparrow thing.. but I don't really like Johnny Depp outside of the character.. and I've got this thing for Aragorn but I'm not really ga-ga about Viggo Mortensen.. and at the end of the movie when Aragorn was all cleaned up and was crowned the king.. he just didn't have that "appeal" anymore. I don't even know why I'm writing about this aside from the fact that I find it amusing.
I'm giving in 4.5 stars only because I know everyone will bash me if I give it less *laugh*
