    By the end of this, I have made my own lake. Lake of tears. Now excuse me while I go and finish working on it, maybe it’ll build up to an ocean.

    Sam destroys the ring and is the new king of the Shire (that's what happens in the book)

    I feel a bit bad because following all the battles was a bit hard for me, but anyway, what an epic ending to this amazing story. I found the last hour really captivating, and once more I fell in love with the Fellowship, they are just great. Following the various characters arcs was delighting, anxiety provoking or conflicting, and that's not so obvious in modern narrative. Now I'm going to cry over the friendship between Frodo and Sam, they are too cute and soft for this world.

    Watching all three films on the Blu-Ray extended cut confirms that these are some of the best films ever made and quite possibly the last great epics of cinema. All of film was leading up to the creation of three of three of the best films ever made that are highly re-watchable and rewarding.

    The only real shame was that Peter Jackson did not get Robert Plant to sing a song for the films or even attempt at a Led…

    With The Lord of the Rings trilogy, whenever discussing, watching, or even thinking about the films, there's these deep senses of overwhelming wonder, joy and complexity that always find their way into my heart. The Return of the King brings full circle what the trilogy ignited.

    The Lord of the Rings seems to always be brought up in conversations about traditional stories that end with resounding victory and emotional fulfillment. But the emotional rewards of the series run so much…

    For some reason I delayed my viewing of the third film in the series a little longer than I should have.

    The trilogy is such a tightly woven unity that it doesn't benefit it watching it spread out over too much time and that's probably the reason why today's viewing of the grand finale fell a little "flat" for me but then again its always been my least rated entry.

    Nevertheless, the concluding chapter has a lot of beautiful things…

    So I’m starting these reviews with the last one since it doesn’t matter anyway, I watched them all in 1 sitting (on a whim too, got sick randomly so why not?)

    What is clear to me with this series is that as spectators, we are ready to forgive some mistakes in movies we like when they do enough things right. I’m pretty much doing this all the time with Hong Kong movies since they’re filled with glaring mistakes but I…

    Peter Jackson's epic fantasy trilogy ends with a spectacular bang, in ways that feel both bittersweet and victorious. Frodo, Samwise and their friends complete their final journey in defeating Sauron and destroying the ring once and for all.

    We follow three key plots - Frodo, Sam and Gollum's journey to destroy the ring, Aragorn's journey in becoming the King of Men, aided by Gimli and Legolas, and the epic battle at Minas Tirith shown from the perspectives of Gandalf, Merry,…
