Reporting From Glendale, California.
Look, I don't get this whole Lord of the Rings phenomenon. Nine motherfucking hours to throw some piece of jewelry into the fire? What the hell?! I'm going to have to stop pretending to appreciate those movies or even understand them because I don't. And how could they have the audacity to have extended versions of each of those films on DVD? It's like taking "Forever" and trying to make it longer.
Remember the days when we had fantasy films like The NeverEnding Story? A boy hops on the back of a giant flying dog, and 90 minutes later it's over—and that story's supposed to be never-ending! They just go in, take care of business, and get out. Like a crack whore down at the bowery.
I know, I know, I just lost my large fan base of gaming/sci-fi/comic nerds. So crucify me.
