A fantasy adventure and Peter Jackson's most recognizable contribution to his craft, "The Fellowship of the Ring" begins the first part of a trilogy of modern classics.

This is my favorite of the trilogy. The film creates a charming group of characters in its Hobbit cast and the world of Tolkien feels fresh and intriguing. Plus, some of the scariest moments of the trilogy are the arrival of the evil Nazgul in the unassuming world of the Shire, as well as the grotesque orc armies that descend upon Middle Earth. Although there are certainly some grotesque CGI effects (such as the tomb battle,) the film mostly stays smaller and focuses on its band of travelers, which results in a more emotional and touching adventure film.

Since this is one of the most critically acclaimed and successful trilogies ever created in filmmaking history, I dare to start this review by stating a fact, and not an opinion: The Lord of the Rings is a masterpiece, admirable in all respects. Now, I'll add an opinion: The Lord of the Rings is three of the best movies of all time, fame that has acquired not for free.

The Lord of the Rings trilogy is unique. One may say, "I love the Return of the King and Fellowship, but the Two Towers is my personal favorite." My point is that with most film trilogies, you are gonna easily be able to isolate a favorite film out the three. The Lord of the Rings trilogy is an exception. Peter Jackson dove into this project with an intention to film the whole trilogy in one 15 month shoot, and his intentions exceeded his and everyone's expectations. Sure, a ton of deviation from JRR Tolkien's beloved books was implemented throughout the movies, but the way that it was reflected onto screen was beyond brilliant and greatly complemented the masterful work of Tolkien. Let’s get started with the first film of the three!
I adore the heck out of this movie, but there is …

The extravagance and scope of Middle-earth, the fantastical realm first conceived by J. R.R. Tolkien in the 30's and finally realised on the big screen by Peter Jackson at the dawn of a new millennium, has had a gargantuan impact on contemporary literature and film. Take any epic fantasy book series produced in the last half century, and doubtless you will find strong thematic and stylistic strands of linking DNA with Tolkien's books; likewise, if you took any epic fantasy film (or television show) from the last decade, you would find echoes of Jackson's panoramas of forests, wastelands, and dramatic battles.
All this cultural significance and visual splendour considered, the 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy (in particular this installment) is a bloody bore! The main problem I have with it …
