There's been some hoohaa in the press and on the web about the title of the next LOTR movie, "The Two Towers". Some are suggesting that it's a deliberate attempt at demeaning the tragic events of Sept 11, even though that was the title of Tolkein's second book of the trilogy and that title is over 50 years old.<br><br>They also conveniently forget that the movie began production before the 9/11 events and the title had been decided on.<br><br>Which isn't to say it can't be changed to soothe the sensibilities of those easily offended. But, I mean, c'mon. Do we have to ban the word "tower" from the English language next?<br><br>Sheesh...get a grip.<br><br>
I agree there are to many looneys out there and in here aswell.<br><br>They should not change the title 'Two Towers" for any reason.<br><br>And I heard that the scene in spiderman with the WTC towers were also placed back in. Altou I did not see the movie yet but thats what I heard.<br><br>LOTR should stick with the book and not worry about what the whiners are saying.<br><br>

Of course we have to ban the word "tower"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!<br><br>In much the same way we banned the words "pearl" and "harbor" after December 7 ...<br><br>[/sarcasm]<br><br>You're right, people need to get more of a grip ... =P<br><br>=)<br><br>***matt<br><br>

Actually, I thought that trailer with the bad guys webbed between the towers was probably the lamest thing I had ever seen, and it really soured me on seeing the film ... I thought the later trailers were far and away more effective - and they in fact made me excited to want to see the film again ...<br><br>I wonder if when the DVD comes out if there will be a Director's Cut with the original cut of the film? IIRC, the thing was in the can and ready for imminent release when 9/11 happened ... I would pay money to see what that version was like =)<br><br>***matt<br><br>
I hate to say this, but there will be those who lost loved ones in the attacks that will want compensation from anything that might use even the vaguest reference to "towers". It's been isolated and rare, but thre have been some examples of inconceivable greed. <br><br>
