019: One Ring to Find Them: A discussion of The Fellowship of the Ring movie

May 22, 2018

In 2001, filmmaker Peter Jackson launched his epic trilogy of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings with The Fellowship of the Ring. Not only did it bring fantasy into the forefront of popular culture, it also changed epic filmmaking and made characters like Frodo and Aragorn household names. In this episode, I’m joined by Dawn Pink to discuss that first film. We discuss what made it so great, the changes Jackson made from the original text, and how casting (and a little luck) made it into one of the greatest films of all time.

The latest Star Wars movie, THE LAST JEDI, wowed critics and has made a ton of money.
