"Nobody tosses a dwarf."

A J.R.R. Tolkien classic, "The Lord of the Rings" series. This review could take a while but we'll cut it down just a bit. This movie has tons, and I mean, tons of awesome effects, great acting, and story line. And when I say "Tons of story line" I mean it. We'll start with effects. The effects are well done especially for it's time. Even though this movie only came out in the year 2001, technology has advanced to give more of a cutting edge to cinematography. I especially loved the fine details on Mount Doom shown throughout the movie. As well as the effects, the settings are marvelous. Every setting made was made in such detail that it looked as if it had existed for hundreds of years. I most admired the Hobbit's Shire shown at the beginning of the novel. The time it must have took to b...

A Great Feat

I was wrong about disliking this movie the first time I watched it. I initially thought it was overrated, slow, and tedious. But upon watching more movies and gaining experience, I now believe it's an absolute masterpiece and it deserved every Oscar it claimed. The last hour or so was so engaging, I tried not to blink. The visual effects are pure eye candy and the story can be really touching because it comments on destiny, courage, friendship, and moral choices. My favourite scene in this film is not adrenaline-driven: when Gandalf explains the concept of destiny to Frodo. It made me think beyond the movie and actually thought about my own life--where I am now, what I'm doing with myself to be where I want to be in the future, and more. If that isn't a powerful script, I don't know what ...

Review - The Lord of the Rings (2001-2003)

Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood) was just a simple hobbit living in Middle Earth when Gandalf (Ian McKellen) sent him on a mission to destroy his uncle's Ring of Power. His adventure is chronicled in the three part epic, "The Lord of the Rings."

I'm sorry to anybody that thinks of the series as three movies, because I don't. They were all filmed together and even the original books were intended as one straight story. The fact is people don't want to sit through a ten hour movie, so that's that.

Anyway, "The Lord of the Rings" is one of the greatest stories ever told, and I don't mean that just as the story itself, but it is told on a bigger scale than anything else. It all takes place in a huge world filled with a number of different creatures and characters and thus can be called nothi...

"The most extraordinary...

I consider the Lord of the Rings to be best book ever after the Bible. So, when I found out that a movie was being made, the trhee of them at the same time, I felt quite excited about it.
Were years of waiting, of checking forums, literally, studing nordic mythology for a full understand of the concept, I mean, it was a very anxious wait, that was more than rewarded.
FOTR is the first part, (not my favorite, though) And... is one of those movies that writes story and leave marks. No matter if you find it overrated, or even don't like it, the whole world speaks about it. And with reason. Because you can see the love for the book, for the story, from every single component of the production. And that makes an unforgeatable movie, where everything turned up to be the finest. Can't miss thi...

The perfect trilogy part I

While this is the least action oriented movie of the 3 in the series, The Fellowship of the Ring is an essential part as it sets the entire frame and ground work for all of the other movies. I really appreciated the work done on this movie as it was the best way to introduce the various characters and to give you time to develop an attachment to them. Many people say that this movie is the slowest of the 3, and I agree with the idea that because it is not built around the battle sequences that the other 2 have, yes it does rely more upon the story itself. As far as being dull, not in the least. Because most people that watch this movie for the first time don't always know a lot about the characters they have to develop an interest. This is not always easy to do, and since we are being int...
