For the release of the Hobbit, Lindsay Ellis
of the Nostalgia Chick (previously
) has decided to look back at all the LOTR films in order to analyze how they changed genre film-making, expected movie length, extended cuts, the problems of adaptation, and why Eowyn and Merry are made for each other. (Fellowship Of The Ring
, Two Towers
, Return Of The King Part 1
, Part 2
) Still need more? Then why not watch Kerry Shawcross and Chris Demarais of Rooster Teeth (previously
) try to walk the 120+ mile journey across New Zealand from the filming location of Hobbiton in Matamata to the filming location of Mount Doom, Mount Ngauruhoe in A Simple Walk Into Mordor.
SF author and Mefi's Own Jscalzi
was alone one night during a LOTR marathon and decided to live-tweet a running commentary.
Protest Lord Of The Rings "The Two Towers"!!!
"We believe that Peter Jackson and New Line Cinema's actions are in fact hate speech. The movie is intentionally being named The Two Towers in order to capitalize on the tragedy of September 11." Satire?....please.
Lord of the Rings sweeps Baftas
It must be wierd for Peter Jackson to be working on the final two acts of his trilogy when the first part is winning awards. I think this is what can be termed 'pressure to perform'.
New Line may add footage to the end of the theatrical release of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring
. "We're going to change the last reel out and do a preview of Two [Towers] at the end of the last reel..."
