Recently, I've become aware that certain films are able to transcend the medium by being completely self-assured in their atmospheres…
The Lord of the Rings Collection
The Lord of the Rings trilogy consists of three epic fantasy films, based on the influential novels written by J. R. R. Tolkien, directed by Peter Jackson.
I don't even care anymore.
I don't care that the eagles could have flown them to Mordor.
I don't care about all the blatant Christian undertones.
I don't care that it's kind of racist.
I don't care.
I don't care because this trilogy is so fucking beautiful that it makes my eyes hurt.
The music is beautiful, the cinematography is beautiful, the characters are beautiful, the battle scenes are beautiful, even the Blu-Ray box set cover art is beautiful. Everything is goddamn gorgeous.
"Those fucking Hobbit movies were boring as hell. All it was was a bunch of people walking. THREE movies of people walking to a fucking volcano. Here's the first movie... *walks*... and here's the second movie... *walks...stumbles...keeps walking*.. You ready for the third movie? *walks...FINALLY dumps ring in volcano...walks away* Even the fucking trees walked in those movies."
-Randal in Clerks 2
A harrowing portrayal of drug-addiction, shown through the hallucinatory vision of the protagonist who attempts to make sense of his world view through fantasy.
Never start an extended trilogy marathon at 5.pm, just finished at 3:50 a.m.
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy are my favorite films of all time, and have been since I first saw Fellowship of the Ring in theaters back in 2001. I was 10, and I had no clue what I was about to see. All I had seen was the poster of the Fellowship in their boats passing the colossal Argonath. I fell in love within the first five minutes. This is the ultimate in live-action fantasy filmmaking, and in my opinion, the production of these massive films has never been matched. Everything from building (growing) The Shire, to all the chain mail made by hand, to the ways it changed visual effects, it's absolutely astounding that these films were made…
"The length of a film should be directly related to the endurance of the human bladder."
The greatest trilogy of all time (well, tied with Star Wars I guess).
Young people of today who barely remember a decade ago and think of SPIDER-MAN (2002) as an "old movie" may not be able to fully appreciate the full impact THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy had. It was rightfully labeled as the STAR WARS of our generation, and not only on the obvious level that it was an action/adventure trilogy, but in the way it was a benchmark that sparked imaginations and inspired the next emerging group of filmmakers. If you're a filmmaker and were a child of the 1970's, you remember the release of STAR WARS damned well! LORD OF THE RINGS served that same purpose for my colleagues. Recently I've been hearing people refer to Nolan's BATMAN trilogy…
The new age OG of the stoner movie genre.
Doesn't even look outdated as the special effects are on par with some of the filth being released in 2016.
Characters look absolutely incredible-costumes, make up and all. Scenery, although with some additions of CGI is actually filmed on location in New Zealand which is what George Lucas should have been thinking.
Definitely the best fantasy trilogy of the early 2000s.
Having just spent 12 hours watching this from beginning to end for the first time (I'd watched The Fellowship once and never got round to continuing), I have to say it was a hell of an experience, although at times it felt longer than necessary I feel they would work better watching them individually rather than back to back. There's nothing I can say about these films that hasn't been said before, and it's taken far too much out of me to even try. I'll certainly be watching them again in the future!
No le pongo calificación porque sería redundante.
Braucht man denke ich nix zu sagen.
Separately, the Lord of the Rings movies are three really good fantasy blockbusters.
Collectively, they form one of the greatest cinematic achievements of all time.
At the time of its release, this 3 movie set was every bit as epic as the expectation that surrounded it.
The first 25 are in order, and after that, they are alphabetized!
I keep jumping around and extending this and…
