We rented "The Two Towers" last night--I FINALLY got to see it.(I was extremely pregnant with Liam when it first came out, so couldn't sit that long when it was in the theater.)

And wonder of wonders, 7-month-old Liam sat there with us and actually WATCHED a good 75% of the movie (he especially seemed interested in Gollum). We did take an intermission for his rice cereal dinner, but we were amazed at this kid.
I guess I can call it his first movie Smiler

p.s. When I was entering active labor with the baby back in January, one of the time-killers was putting in the DVD of "Fellowship..." and walking around the living room through the contractions.

What can I say, we are truly a family of nerds Smiler

Ya, we went and bought the DVD yesterday, and while I'm still trying to decide if it's too scary for the kids or not (especially Gollum, the ghosts in the bog and close-ups of the orcs), I need to report that our beagle was absolutely transfixed.

I tried to pick Fletcher up and cuddle with him, and he growled and walked back over to the middle of the couch, sat back down, and watched the movie. We knew he was watching it because he kept reacting to it (barked at the marching noises and tilted his head and growled when he saw and heard the wolves of Isengard). (Uhhh...not trying on purpose to compare your kid to a beagle or anything...I'm sure he's cuter and he HAS to be smarter!!!!!)

Julie, I'm soooo gonna have that same problem this year when Return of the King comes out! I thought about that too! And of course, now they're even re-releasing LONGER versions of the first two movies, slightly before ROTK. Boo! Unfair to pregnant ladies! Razzer

I also wonder how I'll be able to watch that one in my hormoned-up state, seeing as it's clearly going to be the most emotional of the three. I'll bawl for weeks! In the animated series, Frodo was merely "tired" at the end of his journey...but based on the info I saw for Jackson's ROTK, Frodo is going to kind of come apart on us and stop being Frodo as we know him, by the end...like disintegration. And the very, very end after everything is said and done and Frodo sails away with Bilbo, Gandalf and the elves...that will be excruciating. Especially to have to watch Frodo say goodbye to Sam. I'm even tearing up now. I don't know if I can stand that!

(My question has always been though...why can't Aerowyn just cut a deal with her dad and agree to jump on a boat to join the elves after Aragorn dies?)

*chortles* That's a good diversion. My mother was making pizzas when I started demanding my freedom, and she swore black and blue that she wouldn't go to the hospital until she'd finished putting together those damn pizzas. Smiler One thing you can rely on Polish women for is to cook, or think of their next recipe, 24/7!
