Lord of The Rings is about a wealthy English nobleman who has a penchant for collecting wedding rings.Not,everyone knows what LOTR is about.I was looking forward to this on the list but when the film starts it just jumps right in.The story begins right after the credits,no humming or ha-ing.It’s the second film so i guess there was reason to go back and retell or introduce anything.That’s why the first third of the film i wasn’t too bothered about the characters,then the second third i was just getting to know them again and there side stories and the last bit i was excited and now that it’s over i want to watch the next one.But i don’t think i’ll bother,i seen it some 10 years,yes it’s been 10 years,ago and it’s a long film too.I found a lot of the CGI didn’t hold the test of time.I guess when you’re making an epic film,or three,you have to skimp and cut corners somewhere and there was more scenes than i care to mention that the special effects just looked a bit on the shit side for me.Great story though and fair dues to Jackson for tackling and fighting to get the rights to make the film.Lets see,notable stuff:Aragon or the buck who plays him is a solid actor,merry and pippen come across as too camp in places,Sauromon must spend half his day combing his hair up in that castle like Rapunzele or something.Also the Orcs had a pretty good grasp of language,who taught them how to speak?I noticed 2 chatting to each other while guarding the black gate,what would they be talking about? “Going out for the weekend?” , “How’s the missus?”
