Saw it in Toronto. Loved it. Wept all the way through, make-up be d—-d. Came home and took my non-Tolkien-fan husband, (who has indulged me by viewing the first two movies once each). All he would say was that he felt cheated by Hollywood. And that George Lucas is a rip-off artist and that Tolkien is a master storyteller. Suffering from FVS, (first viewing syndrome), he will need some time to digest things before a second viewing, but he begins to understand my obsession.
Well done, Peej, well done.
