    If you've not seen any of them, go see Lord of the Rings.

    For someone who enjoyed "Dude, Where's My Car?", I would suggest "Sorority Boys" and "Van Wilder". [​IMG]

    1) Van Wilder - I saw the sneak preview on Saturday night and I actually found it to be a pretty funny movie. The theater wasn't that crowded (around 50 or so people in a theater that seats around 100), 98% of the people there dug the film as almost all of us (except my friend who didn't really want to see the film in the first place) were laughing out loud for a majority of the 90 minute running time. The film does have jokes that have been done before, but here they push the limits of good taste and the results are pretty funny. If you just want to be entertained, see this movie ASAP with a packed theater.
    2) Big Trouble - I loved the book so I'm so there this weekend. My friend who already has seen the film (another fan of the book) said it follows the book 98% and the movie only changes three things changed (a running gag, a location change, and the snake is gone).
    3) Panic Room - Fincher. Enough said.

    LOTR theaters won't necessarily be empty: the number of showings are reduced, but it is still doing decent business. The showing I went to on Sunday night was nearly full.

    Ryan, at the end of LOTR, before the credits (just as the original movie started rolling credits), you will see "This Christmas...The Story Continues...With The Two Towers..." Then you get 3+ minutes of non-stop amazing scenes from the next movie.

    I saw LOTR for the third time Tuesday night at an 8:00pm showing because I wanted to see this preview. The theater was about half-full. The preview is very exciting and it looks like TTT will be MUCH more exciting than FOTR. I wasn't expecting much, but I am really excited about TTT now. If you are a fan of LOTR, you really should go see it.

    i saw LOTR, great movie, also got to sit in nice leather seats and in dts sound. my only complaint is that it is a little long but the two towers trailer was great.
