Might as well say Escape From LA is better than EFNY. Or Conan the Destroyer is better than CTB. RIDICULOUS.
And Two Towers jumped the shark by placing way, wayyyyy too much emphasis on action over narrative. Yes, it was a good "Hollywood" movie and no doubt helped cement LOTRs mainstream popularity, but I far and away consider Fellowship the best realization of Tolkien mythos.
On that note...
Gandalf the Grey battles Saruman at Isengard, and they are using their staves to hurl each other about. Gandalf the White only ever enchants his staff with +1 light radius throughout the other movies. What gives? Does Force Push only work on other wizards? Wizard my ass.
