    The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

    ★★★★★

    The yearly rewatch is here. The start of it all, the start of the greatest trilogy in cinema history. I can’t quite put into words just how much these films mean to me, they were my favourite films when I was 5 and they still are to this day nearly 20 years on. They manage to bring out every single emotion no matter how many times I’ve watched them. We all know how good the world building, pacing, performances, cinematography, score, characters etc etc are in these films but still nothing can be said to quite explain my love for them. Onto the two towers tomorrow.

    I will never get tired of this film. An incredibly vibrant setting with each frame better than the last. Bernard Herrmann composing one of the best scores I have ever heard. A younger De Niro delivering a truly masterful performance which goes down as one of the all time greats for me, not to mention Jodie foster’s performance at the age of fucking 14. This is definitely one of the best character studies in cinema history.

    Truly an art house…

    Just perfect. There is nothing that I can add about this film that hasn’t already been said. It is story telling at its absolute best, there is no question for me that this is one of the greatest films that I have ever seen. Everything is done to perfection, from the beautiful cinematography, fantastic imagery and iconic score to the set and costume design, dialogue and array of interesting characters. 

    This is a slow burn 3 hour period drama which did not bore me at any point in time, that is an astonishing accomplishment.

    I feel very conflicted. It looked great at times but I don’t really think this film should’ve been made. This rating is arbitrary and it may change on rewatch, however, I don’t really want to rewatch this ever again.

    My birthday today so I made the fiancé sit and watch one of the greatest movies of all time. She gave it a 7.5/10…..too late to cancel the engagement?

    This film tries so hard to hide the fact that it is unoriginal, shallow, full of bad performances and predictable by having a few effective jumpscares and a relatively intriguing concept. One of the worst films this year for me.
