Ripley's movie review

Minas Tirith was breathtaking (as was most of the scenery), Shelob was nasty, and the battle scenes were astounding. There's not much else I can add without major spoilers except that everything I said about the other two movies holds true for this one. It's the final installment of a masterpiece and I highly recommend it.
