The best for last

HAVEN'T READ THE BOOKS? - see the theatrical versions first. They are better paced with action timed to keep your attention. They also have fewer details that make no sense if this is your first exposure. Those versions are still gorgeous and present a lovable and believable world. They are quite well-made and enjoyable films, regardless of subject matter. LOVE THE BOOKS? - enjoy this version of the Return of the King. This is the best film of the three (in both this and the theatrical version). It continues the visual feast. Book-fans will love the beauty and majesty of Minas Tirith. The Battle of Pelennor Fields is unbelievable and will be imitated for decades. It is so huge it actually reduces Helm's Deep back to the minor battle it is. I don't watch movies for action, but I love this ...

A Modern Masterpiece

It's hard to pick which one is my favourite out of the three because each of them has something special to offer. As for this one, I did enjoy the giant spider scene because it was so creepy and the audience can easily feel the danger that Frodo is going through. The use of silence was perfectly molded, it gives me the chills just thinking about it. Everything is grander in this final part of the saga which made it all the more enjoyable. The battles kicked the excitement factor up a notch, the special effects are more eye-popping, and the movie provided the story a perfect form of closure. I'm glad to have given the trilogy a second chance because I initially thought the it was overrated, boring, and too long. Now I realize that the trilogy is the definition of a modern epic and it deser...

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 perfect trilogy part III

This movie is by far one of my favorites! While I wasn't one of those people sleeping on the sidewalks waiting for the opportunity to buy the first ticket, nor was I one of those people dressed as their favorite characters, I was one of the thousands talking about how badly I wanted to see this as soon as the release date was announced.
Let me first start by saying that before you get into this movie you HAVE to have seen the the previous 2 movies. The opening sequence is how Smeagol comes to obtain the ring, and how it corrupts his very existence. After that light hearted opening (sarcasm can be our friend), you are immediately thrown back into the full story line. While there are a number of movies over the years that I have felt "tortured" with... meaning that as the main characters ...
