Lord of the Rings is a lot like that. In that all of the boring stuff lasts three or four times too long. We don't need fifteen minutes of Frodo and Sam staring longingly at each other
Agreed. I wanted to drill a hole in my head just to see the ending of that "The weight is too hard Sam. I believe in you Mr. Frodo" bull. I think Peter Jackson scenes have fulfilled the criteria of some countries' torturing methods.
