The final installment of this classic high fantasy tale, our heroes are on the last leg of their journey. Pippin and Gandalf arrive in Minis Tirith, the White City. This is one of my favorite parts in the film, because the white city stands out against the oncoming darkness like a white beacon of hope. I love how Shadowfax runs through the days and nights with great haste, taking them to see the Steward of Gondor, who resides in Minis Tirith.
The second film in The Lord of the Rings trilogy covers a lot of ground, especially considering that the second book is 447 pages long. I’ve been watching the films after reading the books, and boy does Peter Jackson outdo himself. The score soundtrack, the acting, and the scenery of New Zealand brings the books to life. I’ve seen the films many times over, but after reading The Two Towers, as well as The Fellowship of the Ring, I appreciate how the films compliment the original source material.
