Lindsay Ellis - The Nostalgia Chick - Reviews the Films

The Fellowship of the Ring: http://blip.tv/nostalgia-chick/nostalgia-chick-the-fellowship-of-the-ring-6491677 - Up until 2001, the fantasy genre had no mega-successful, money chugging, critical darling film franchise to its name. Up steps a portly kiwi man with a beard and a penchant for splatter horror.

The Two Towers: http://blip.tv/nostalgia-chick/lord-of-the-rings-the-two-towers-6500904 - The middle chapter of one of the most ambitious film adaptations of all time; where did it soar, and where did it fall apart like an orc running an Olympic torch into a pile of bombs? And why are you such a jerk, Faramir?

The Return of the King Part 1: http://blip.tv/nostalgia-chick/nostalgia-chick-lord-of-the-rings-return-of-the-king-part-1-6513810 - The beginning of the end brings the beginning of the end of so many questions... like who SHOULD Eowyn have ended up with? And will Samwise ever get help for his deep, troublesome anger problems?

She hasn't posted the second part of her ROTK review yet, it went long apparently. And while I don't agree with all of her thoughts, I think she had a lot to say that was quite insightful.

Frodo Fall Count = priceless :rofl:

Agree with some stuff, but not the overall sentiment.
