Return of the King: I finally got a chance to see final installment of Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy. If you haven't seen it yet, you should make it a point to see it. The three-plus hours are well spent.
My favorite line of this movie is from Gimli, following up on the extended DVD edition of the Two Towers where he and Legolas compete for killing for the most of the enemy.
During the movie's great battle, Legolas displays his amazing acrobatic abilities to take down an enemy elephant-type beast. After this amazing display bringing down a beast which is about three times the size of a normal elephant, Gimli informs Legolas that: "That still only counts as one."
The only downside is that it will still be about 10 months before the extended edition DVD of "The Return of the King" hits store shelves.
