During the battle of Helms Deep, when Legolas starts fighting with his knives you can clearly see there are no arrows left in his quiver. Later in the battle he's shooting arrows from his bow again. See more »
[sounds of trees 'speaking' is heard]
Gimli, lower your axe.
They have feelings, my friend. The elves began it, waking up the trees, teaching them to speak.
Talking trees. What do trees have to talk about, hmm... except the consistency of squirrel droppings?

Seriously, I never thought a movie could get better than the Fellowship of the Ring, but it did. This movie should be #1 on the IMDb top 250. This movie, as long as it was, captivated me from start to finish, and those who are not entertained by this movie can not be entertained period.
Yes, I have read the book. Any chapters cut out at the end of books III and IV will probably themselves in the next installment. If you haven't noticed, the beginning of the Two Towers was actually closed the Fellowship of the Ring on the big screen.
Gollum was a CG masterpiece. He added some light to this incredibly dark movie. At the same time, there are areas where you feel sorry for the poor guy, or just want to kill him. Smeagol was probably the most diverse character I've ever seen.
Elijah Wood put on a better performance than he did in the first movie, as did Sean Astin. Ian McKellen, who captivated us in the last movie, captivated us even more in this one. Viggo Mortensen, John Rhys-Davies, and Orlando Bloom made a great trio. They laughed together, cried together, prospered together, and suffered together. This trio gave life to Aragorn, Gimli, and Legolas. Eowyn expressed her emotions clearly through Miranda Otto.
The music need not be discussed. Its greatness speaks for itself.
Favorite Scene: The Battle of Helms Deep. Possibly the greatest scene in the book, 50% of the trailer, and action packed climax to this beautiful movie.
The movie, like its predecessor, fails to bring us closure, but that's ok. Closure will come next year. I look forward to the Return of the King.
The Two Towers is now my favorite movie of all time.
The scale is broken. 10 is not a capacity sufficient enough to hold this movie... my movie... my... precious...
