Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)

Directed by Peter Jackson

Starring Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Orlando Bloom, Sean Bean


Long and involved, I wonder if it has to be that way.

Not sure I’m totally comfortable with the whole “this is going to be a trilogy” concept. I believe they should be three distinct stories, not just one story split up into three chapters. I had the same problem with Star Wars. The movie by itself doesn’t seem compelte, I don’t leave feeling satisfied. And what if, for some reason, they decide not to make the other movies? Then we’re all screwed.

Neat how they made the hobbits look small. I would have liked to see more wizardry from Gandalf (only one scene). Orlando’s cool as the archer.
