But Joan, I thought you =liked= the movie! Those who passionately didn't -
notably Bratman and a few others - were making scathing critical comments on
script and film-making, PLUS the rest of us were doing our best to throw in
lines and asides, MST3K style.
I didn't think I said anything terribly funny myself, but was fond of my
real-estate-ad when the ruined building on Weathertop showed up - "Needs work."
Grace had her moment for "Sieg Heil!" when the figures of the Kings showed up,
extending their hands; and when Frodo comes across the huge sculptured head
she said (naturally) "It's Teddy Roosevelt!"
Hugo Weaver had his lines from THE MATRIX supplied to him during the Council
of Elrond (we had the original sound turned way down).
We also started a drinking game - well, not really, as there's no booze
allowed at the Sackville-Baggins center - but whenever Elijah Wood shows viewers
that Haunted Stare again, we would chorus "Drink!!!" One could get through a
lot of drinks that way.
But it was perhaps Emily Rauscher who highlighted the evening. The second
time we saw the Ring gleaming at us in somebody's palm, she commented puckishly
"It's still round!" I mean, what else is there to say about it? After that,
son John and others took it up and every time that dinged Ring reappeared -
"It's still round!"
