....Hi All: Well, since I had to work this morning, I spent friday night playing with the kids, and after they got bored with me, I lay down on my comfy waterbed(oh, do I love my bed!!!) and flip around the dial(remember when TV's had dials???)and saw nothing but garbage on so looking thru my library of videos, I decided to watch LOTM for the umpteenth time. What a GREAT movie. everytime I see it I find something new.(I'm kinda slow that way.) For instance last nite I noticed, (finally) that in the fight scene in the meadow that the guy at the fort that sez "Got no family, so Thought I'd stick around and lend a hand" dies by two thunderous blows with a tomahawk!!... Just a little something I missed the 40 times I saw It before.
What I regret most is the total lack of character development. The players are all thrust upon us and we don't know why they say or do what they do!!!! This bothers me to no end!!! I only hope that the directors cut has enuf scenes in it to help us understand the lives of these people.(without having to resort to endless historical backround checking, which we have all done.) I want to SEE it on the screen.
Sorry, I guess I'm just rambling on....But are there any of you that feel the same way?????
...I remain, General Norm (haha)
