Other Selections

Year of Release:December 2001
Based on:Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien 1954
Director: Peter Jackson
Studio:New Line Cinema
Summary: An epic adventure of good against evil, a story of the power of friendship and individual courage, and the heroic quest to pave the way for the emergence of mankind. This movie(s) are arguably the most faithful adaptation of a well-loved mythology to the big screen. I am considering the original three episodes (Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and The Return of the King) only. The following three episodes based on The Hobbit were, in my opinion, less successful.

I have to admit I had mixed emotion when it was announced that LOTR had begun filming. I could not visualize a way that a novel of such scope and complexity could successfully transition to a medium where the ultimate arbiter of success was the almighty dollar. As it turns out, I needn’t have worried. In Peter Jackson’s hand, this adaptation was nearly perfect.

Have you watched the film series? Do you agree with my selection? What do you think?
