Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring 
The 1st of the Epic Trilogy.
3.5/4 stars

Let´s face it. This is something that a lot of us waited our whole life to finally see on a big screen. Jackson carried a real heavy burden of bringing Tolkien´s magnificent world to life. And, by God, he did. I mean, there are a few minor mistakes here, like: Liv Tyler should not, by all means, be with Frodo and the Nazguls in the river scene. She completely ruined the importance and the symbolism of gathering that took place there (it is what the whole movie is about: inner conflict of dualised forces). Sometimes it seems that Ralph Bakshi with his animated The Lord of the Rings understood better the abstract, mythological and philosophical aspects of the book. But, at the end, it doesn´t matter, ´cause Jackson blinded us more than effectively, with his brave and powerful vision. We can even forgive him Aragorn-Arwen romance plot. What else to say than: congratulations mr. Jackson! You brought us the most beautiful and the strongest imagination ever to be seen. By far, the best fantasy (and much more) in the history of moving pictures. You just can´t beat this one.
