Movie #38


Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring

I don't like part 2 and 3, although the extended versions make them MUCH better.

But the first film in this series is awe-striking... is that a word?

Not officially a trilogy by any sense of the word, but that's for another time. This is the best fantasy movie ever made.

Yes. Better than Legend.

Sigh.

Try it with rice.

If you don't understand what makes Boromir the best character in the series,
then you're an imbecile. No really. 70 IQ and everything.


BONUS: I recommend viewing this and Excalibur together to get a strong sense of British Myth. Asimov's Light Years isn't bad either.
