Movie Review Monday: Lord of the Rings, Pt. 1

As promised on Tuesday or whenever it was, I begin the changes. For today’s Movie Review, I shall summarize, critique, and otherwise talk about The Fellowship of the Ring, the first installment in the legendary film series The Lord of the Rings. The movie begins with a telling of how the evil lord Sauron lost the One Ring to mortal man, passed from their to Gollum, and then from there to Hobbits. And so we begin the tale. Frodo Baggins, a hobbit of the Shire is given the Ring by his uncle Bilbo. Gandalf the wizard then tells Frodo he must get rid of it because Sauron is actually alive and searching for it via the Black Riders. So Frodo departs on a quest, is joined by some of his hobbit friends and the Ranger Aragorn. Frodo is then wounded by the Black Riders and taken to Rivendell, the House of Elrond the elf. From there, Frodo is joined by 5 other beings (including Gandalf and Legolas an elf, my personal favorite of the series.) In a long journey, the Fellowship loses Gandalf and one other comrade, Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli the dwarf set off to find two of the hobbits that were captured, and Frodo and his ever faithful pal Sam set off to Mordor alone, to destroy the Ring. No language, high action and scary images make this an enjoyable movie.
An actual plot/storyline is a plus.

Quote of the Amount of Time I Want to Leave it Up Here

"I've... seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've seen C-Beams... glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost... like tears... in rain. Time... to die." ~Roy Batty (Blade Runner)
