You're right about that... [In reply to] Can't Post

"its obviously always nicer to enjoy something."

There's a 10th Anniversary of TTT movie thread on Main and I dug out an old email I wrote after I saw TTT for the first time. Then (because anything is better than cleaning), I dug out the other emails I wrote when I saw it the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 9th, 10th, and 11th times (I must have been too busy after #8).

I did make the same observation. These movies dug in over time rather than knocking me over at first glance. (although I was instantly charmed by many scenes in FOTR)

I also was reminded of how severely I had to talk to myself to get over the changes in Faramir in TTT. I was quite put out and it was messing with my ability to be happy and happy about the movie. So I worked at getting over it because 'it's nicer to enjoy something'. :-) The trick is letting in the good and deflecting bad.

I've discovered that a matinee is only $5 and I think I can pop for a few more viewings at $5 (plus the Christmas viewing). Plus, it will come to my neighborhood theater in the spring for $2/$3 and I'll see it a few more times then.
