"The Lord of the Rings" trilogy is definitely my favorite movie trilogy of all time. That means I like it more than the original "Star Wars" trilogy. I grew up watching "The Lord of the Rings". I was obsessed with it for a while. "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" was an incredible start to one of the best sagas of all time. The movie starts out at the Shire and the music is spectacular. Every time I hear the score, I feel like I am in the Shire. The movie's introduction was very subtle and calm. I really liked the first 45 minutes of the movie. All of a sudden, the movie is fast-paced. The transition from calm to fast-paced was handled so well. Peter Jackson directed this movie with lots of care. The nine members of the fellowship of the ring are truly fascinating. They all have different personalities. Characters like Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, and Gandalf are all so iconic. The movie is a film adaptation of the novel of the same name by J.R.R. Tolkien. It is very rare when a movie is actually better than its source material. Peter Jackson did an incredible job of recreating the world of Middle-Earth. The themes of "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy include friendship, staying true to yourself, and not giving up. The action scenes in this movie are marvelous. It was filmed in a way that made it look real. This movie had one of the most iconic battles of all time. The battle at the mines of Moria was truly amazing. The villains Saruman and Sauron are so menacing. They are definitely one of the best villains of all time. Many people's complaint with the movie is that it is too long. I strongly disagree. The movie's run time is just perfect. The movie went in depth with every scene. This movie is absolutely perfect. I don't think it could have been any better than it was. If you have never heard of The Lord of the Rings, I suggest getting a life. If you are a person who does not like fantasy, I still recommend this movie. The Lord of the Rings trilogy is meant for anyone. That being said, there are some gruesome scenes. I can talk about "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" for about three hours, but I am not going to. I really recommend checking out "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy on film or by novel. If you do hate both, you have no taste in good cinema or literature.
