movie review: LOTR: TWIN TOWERS

  THE TWO TOWERS: I don’t think that Jonny has COMPLETELY LOST HIS MIND. The TWO TOWERS is a good movie compared to most of the crap that gets reviewed and eviscerated on this website. BUT It’s just not good COMPARED TO PART ONE!! I’m not denying that Gollum was amazing or that Ents are […]

KANJI KONTRADICTION KORNER part 2

KANJI KONTRADICTION KORNER part ONE
