#tbt Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring review

Happy Throwback Thursday! Today I'm going to review the 2001 Peter Jackson epic, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring! So for starters I consider Fellowship of the Ring to be the second best movie of the four movies. I'm counting the 2012 version of the Hobbit also. Although I think Return of the King to be the best of the four, Fellowship is pretty damn amazing! With a terrific cast of Ian McKellen, (Sorry, Sir Ian McKellen) Elijah Wood, Sean Bean, Orlando Bloom, Viggo Mortensen, and about twenty other great actors/actresses, this movie does not disappoint! If you don't know the plot, shame on you. Because I'm a nice guy, I'll tell you the plot anyway. So this really evil Dark Lord Sauron gets destroyed except for his life force which is bound to The One Ring. Bilbo Baggins, who got the ring in The Hobbit, gives it to his nephew Frodo. Frodo finds out its true nature and goes on a journey to Mt. Doom to destroy it with his friend Samwise. Along the way Frodo meets new companions like Aragorn, Merry and Pippin. He fights Orcs and almost dies. All of this gets packed into a ball of adventure and excitement that is this movie! The effects in this movie are kinda mind blowing considering it was only made in 2001. The direction is great and it stays true to the novel. I highly recommend watching the whole trilogy!
