FOCUS! Very nice (unfocused) cinematography, atmospheric, often scary, pretty well cast although the dwarf's welsh accent grated a bit, I'll swear the characters kept changing height relative to each other. The recurrent cycle of clam and crisis got a bit wearing, although that again may have been down to the mental effort of compensating for the focus; even the extremely pretty Legolas was starting to become tiringly blurred by the end. That said, a good film, even if nothing could have lived up to the hype - I can see the DVD entering my collection when it emerges, unless I end up waiting for the boxed trilogy.

Hence to bed, to dream of blurred elves and stuff. (And remembering to correct LJ's insistence that it's tomorrow already.)

Uhhh, calm and crisis then. C'mon, you know what I get like at that time of night!

(Should I rephrase that? Nah ;)
