Mona Lisa Smile/The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King
Feeling worse today. All I want to do is stay in bed but I have plans. I probably should have done that yesterday but went to movies and saw both Mona Lisa Smile and The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. Then came home and stayed up wicked late doing laundry. I won’t share any spoilers on either movie, but I really liked both of them. However, the Lord of the Rings movie was about a half hour too long. Wondering, who told Hollywood that it was now acceptable to make movies over 3 hours long? There use to be a time when a studio wouldn’t release a film over 2 hours, and now they think it’s acceptable to market films that are approaching the 4 hour mark. Now granted I like going to the movies, but I just think that anything over 3 hours is way too long; particularly if it’s the third part of a trilogy. In any event, if you haven’t ‘seen either, go check them out sometime this weekend.
