I'm such a geek...I went out and saw 'Secondhand Lions' tonight just to see the Return of the King trailer, but it was SO worth it!
Favorite Gratuitous Elf Lust Moment: Legolas with the hood of his cloak up....YUMMY! I have the urge to run out and buy a hooded sweatshirt, or make a hooded cloak to wear to the movie in December. Thank you, Peter Jackson, for giving me a hood fixation...
Favorite Overall Trailer Element: Very tough call, but the whole 'reforging sword' and 'Become who you were born to be' segment was just so powerful and got me so psyched up! 2nd place would have to go to the big sweeping Pelennor Fields scenes, especially with Gandalf riding out and showing us why you don't mess with the White Wizard!
Least Favorite Moment: When Gandalf asks Aragorn 'How do we know if Frodo is alive?', Aragorn answers with 'What does your heart tell you?' ICK! ICK!! That's one of my least favorite lines from SW:TPM! I definitely didn't want to be reminded of Anakin during a ROTK trailer, but there it was. I hope this line doesn't make the final cut.
Really, really cool blink-and-you'll-miss-em Moments: Legolas and the Oliphaunt...damn! Shelob...*shivers* Really quick shot near the beginning of Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli trying to calm their panicked horses in front of the Paths of the Dead..sweet!
As for 'Secondhand Lions', I'm glad I stayed to see what I paid for. This movie was definitely sappy, but I ended up enjoying it very much, and I actually cried near the end, twice. If this movie got me teary eyed, there's no hope for me in December. Even so, bring it on! I've already requested Wednesday, Dec. 17th off of work, so I can watch the midnight show the night before and not have to go to work the next day. Instead, I'll sleep in, and then catch the movie again that night. I'm hopeless...but not stupid!*G*
