Yesterday I tore into the Lord of the Rings movies, as I sometimes do on account of what pretentious piles of stupid bullshit they are. Today, instead of continuing to rant and rave about the injustice that was done when Return of the King won the Oscar for Best Picture a few years ago, I will turn the proceedings over to better, funnier men.
Here's a sample clip of the RiffTrax commentary for The Two Towers. It, like the last few seasons of Mystery Science Theater 3000, features Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett. I have a sneaking suspicion that Mike, Kevin, and Bill (or at least Kevin) are fans of the tedious adventures of Frodo and company, but at least they don't take it nearly so seriously as the people who made the films, who were evidently under the impression they were making a profound artistic statement.
