    What bothered me most about Two Towers was the amount of time wasted on Aragorn's fall into the river which could have quite easily been allocated to showing the two towers of the title in contention for the ring. Saruman wanted it for himself and Sauran knew this. All that is far more interesting than the silly bollocks the screen writers put in.
    That and Osgiliath where somehow a Ringwraith managed to miss the ring sitting literally a few metres away from him...

    I do kinda see why they made the changes they did - the pacing of them work a lot better as part of a 13 hour film and the Two Towers had serious issues with that from the source material anyway. Some of the changes were leftover from the old 2 parter scripts as well, apparently.
