Featuring Two Among Many Elaborately Named Towers

[Insert lengthy and irrelevant inspirational speech from Samwise here.]Welcome, won't you?

The Two Towers seems rather mistitled. Sure, there are two towers in it, but only briefly, and if anyone ever mentioned their names (Orthanc and Barad-Dur) I must have missed it. And if that weren't enough, peripheral towers abound. There's Minas Tirith, Cirith Ungol, Minas Morgul, whatever the hell that tower at Helm's Deep with the horn it it is called... On the other hand, the more descriptive Hobbits Creep Around Ineffectually While Big People Fight just doesn't have the same ring.

In case you hadn't guessed by now, the review for The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers has been posted.

Also: The Rifftrax Presents tracks for Faux Star Trek episode To Serve All My Days and Paris Hilton vehicle House of Wax are now available. Of note: Video On Demand versions of Star Trek Phase II episodes are no longer available. See the catalog pages for instructions on how to obtain the unriffed video file, then sync by hand with the Rifftrax.

And now, a pair of samples, behind the cut:
