Let’s talk a little about the Return of the King [SPOILER]. First of all, this movie is LONG: three hours and a half… I don’t even dare to imagine how long will be the Extended DVD Edition. Despite its length, however, Jackson had to cut several important scenes. I know you can’t possibly fit the entire Lord of the Rings book in 10 hours (this may seem a whole lot of time, but the book has *a lot* of pages…) but some omissions – like the entire Palantir plot, to which Jackson merely hint – let me a little perplexed. Besides, was there really need for the Osgiliath/Normandy scene, or the pointless history of Gollum?
I’m happy, though, that Jackson left out the battle for the freedom of the Shire in the ending, cause it had little meaning in the book too. Wormtongue stabbing his master would be a significant scene to show, but it would have implied a lot of other boring and somewhat pointless scenes (and not less than 30 minutes added to the movie).
Now let’s talk about Legolas. I know I must be the only human being on this planet thinking this, but i hate him. What kind of elf would surf on shields and elephants? Not to mention the “I am sooooo pretty, I kick ass, I’m sooo sexy” look on his face, which I can’t stand. Thanks God the time of human kind is about to begin :p
Not the best movie of the trilogy, but still a good movie, and a great result if you consider the previous attempts at bringing on the screen such a ponderous book. Legolas sucks, Gandalf rules, that’s all :pp

I finished Star Wars: KOTOR. Great game! This time i couldn’t resist the Dark Side, though it wasn’t easy sometimes to follow its path… I’m too good, you know :p
Besides, usually CRPGs don’t give you the freedom of being other than good: you have to help people, kill the bad guys and so on. It takes some time to get used to the freedom KOTOR gives you, but when you start chocking people using the force, just like Darth Vader, you feel the unbelievable power of the DARK SIDE! MWHAHAHAHAHA!
Er… by the way, now i want to complete the game with a Light Side Character. We’ll see if this character suits me better or not ;)

Today I’m 22.
Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.

why is it so hard to make the right choice?
Sometimes music brings back unpleasant memories…

I’m not feeling well these days. Maybe the flu, who knows…
Thinking about it I should be glad this has not happened when I had to study, but feeling bad just during this little break isn’t good either…

What’s up with the Internet these days?? It’s just me or in the last few days the net has been awfully slooooow? Maybe the culprit is MyDoom?
And speaking of my doom… tomorrow I’ll have my last (I-do-hope-so) exam, 1/2 of wich is quite easy while the other half is utterly impossible. Well, this is my impression by looking at past years exams, but it could be 100% impossible as well. Yay! After 4 exams in 5 days this is heartening, indeed… :\
