Given the uneven nature of the two Hobbit movies so far (check out our review of The Desolation of Smaug here), a bit of LOTR nostalgia certainly wouldn’t hurt at this point. I have the DVD box set and the Director’s Cut and whatnot, but we all know it: nothing beats the shared experience of watching a movie with an audience every bit as geeky as you. So go on – you just know you want to watch The Two Towers in Singapore again.
