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.

Christopher Lee has been cut out of 'Return Of The King'.
"Of course I am very shocked, that's all I can say....If you want to know why you would have to ask the company New Line or director Peter Jackson and his associates because I still don't really know why.
Does anyone know any more about this sayonara to Saruman? 'Asked if he would attend the première, he said: "No, what's the point? What's the point of going? None at all."
' I'm kind of shocked. But not quite as much as he is from the sounds of it.
