Remembering The Lord of the Rings

With The Hobbit now in theaters, it's time to quickly reflect on one of the greatest film trilogies of all time- The Lord of the Rings.

Another film franchise has made its return to cinemas worldwide. James Bond, Batman, Spider-Man, and even Jason Bourne (sort of) made some solid entries into this year’s monumentally large franchise-filled lineup. The Dark Knight Rises was by far the most anticipated release of the year, followed closely by The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. As I did with The Dark Knight trilogy earlier in July, I watched all three films in the Lord of the Rings trilogy (the story timeline of The Hobbit precedes that trilogy by sixty years) in order to prepare to return to Middle-Earth. With that in mind, I thought that it would be more than appropriate to quickly revisit Peter Jackson’s epic adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s trilogy of fantasy novels. (Blu-ray, Culture, Peter Jackson, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers)

Such fond memories of the trilogy. Unlikely we will see anything like that again.
