Is it possible the studio influenced that? [In reply to] Can't Post

The first one - The Fellowship of the Ring - might have felt forced/cheesy.

But the second one - I can believe that lots of people seeing the movies, esp. w/o having read the books, might have wondered about The Two Towers. Even in the Tolkien community there seems to be much debate (or at least discussion) about which two towers Tolkien meant. I would not be surprised if the studio execs sorta requested, even insisted?, that some reference be made...? (...even if it wasn't the correct towers)

And of course with two down, perhaps the pattern was then too irresistible to pass up?

Btw, I'm ok with it - even liked that PJ did it. Smile
