Read a review of The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and find out if this fantasy movie starring Orlando Bloom and Elijah Wood is as cool as The Fellowship of the Ring.

The Lord of the Rings is the hottest fantasy epic in the world. Thanks to brilliant director Peter Jackson, the Lord of the Rings are coming to life via movies. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring was almost three hours long and the new The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers is a full three hours long. Guess what? It'll still make you wish for more when it's over. It's just that good.

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers is the continued story of the heroes of the Fellowship of the Ring - Frodo (Elijah Wood,) Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen,) Legolas the Elf (Orlando Bloom,) Gimli the Dwarf (John Rhys-Davies,) Gandalf (Ian McKellen,) and their companions. They're fighting orcs, Saruman (Christopher Lee,) Nazgul and worse to defeat Sauron and destroy the One Ring.

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers is packed full of beautiful scenery, fantastic creatures, hideous monsters and more computer-generated critters than Monsters Inc. Everything looks incredible and there's so much detail, you'll have to watch The Two Towers more than once to catch it all.

Then there are the battle scenes. The battles are huge! The siege of the fortress of Helm's Deep is more than half an hour of heroic sword fights, nasty orcs, crazy archery and Legolas showing everyone how it's done. The elf has cooler moves than Tony Hawk! Watching Treebeard and the Ents in action is very cool as well. Loggers beware - an angry tree can cause a lot of damage!

But, is The Two Towers perfect? No. It's close, but there are a few scenes where the computer graphics look wacky. In one scene, Gollum looks like he's almost 12 feet tall! The movie version of The Two Towers doesn't stick entirely to the book either. Even though the movie is long, it still ends before the book and it leaves out a major villain. We'll have to wait for The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King to see the rest of the second book.

Other than a few quirks in the computer graphics, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers is a drop-dead gorgeous movie. If you like fantasy stories with elves, dwarves, knights and wizards - go see The Two Towers! If you don't like fantasy movies, go anyway - this flick will change your mind.

Rating: 5

I am actually a shipper myself. In fact, I didn't really believe in that many shippings except three. But I honestly think this is a nice pairing for whatever reason. Maybe it's the fact that this time Serena ACTUALLY has canonical crush on Ash? I usually base my beliefs on true facts. And they're in a region based on France. It is a rather romantic atmosphere, which I guess is why I get challenged by so many honeymooners in the Pokemon Y game... Anyway, why don't you post what you think? Are they a nice pairing, or do you think other shippings are better? I understand, because Pokeshipping is a worthy opponent.
