Blogathon: The Film That Started It All – Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring


This blog post is part of The Film That Started It All Blogathon on Let’s Go To The Movies. Getting people to really have a look at a film that they believe started a true love, passion and obsession towards films. I wanted to make sure we focus on the good and get away from the negative comments mainly on Twitter, love film!


When I was thinking about this Blogathon something I actually had a similar draft saved from a couple of years ago, only one film was in my mind. That being Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring. I guess I could have combined the whole trilogy but I am going to only focus on that first part and the start of a truly epic journey for cinema watching and then the extended edition released on DVD and now I own on Blu-Ray as well, hoping for 4K UHD one day!

Orlando Bloom and Liv Tyler: LOTR Reunion!

It appears I was a night early seeing Killer Joe, I could have got two Lord of the Rings elves in one go as Liv Tyler went to watch Orlando Bloom on stage last night! I am pretty sure that would have pushed me even more over the edge with excitement.

Arwen and Legolas!

Orlando Bloom Day!

From this day forward the 31st July shall forever be known as Orlando Bloom. That is because I am heading to London to see him for the very first time, making all of my teenage dreams come true! He is in the play Killer Joe in the West End and I am seriously so excited about this, as you will probably already know he was my biggest teenage crush, I have seen all of his films (and TV appearances) and my love for Lord of the Rings is what started it all!


Legolas to return in The Hobbit?

Reports around the web today are stating that Orlando Bloom is set to return as Legolas the role which really got him noticed in The Hobbit. After the announcement of Cate Blanchett returning as Galadriel yesterday. Three more actors are in talks at reprising roles, Ian McKellen as Gandalf, Hugo Weaving as Elrond and Andy Serkis as Smeagol/Gollum.

Let’s face it though they have to get the original Lord of the Rings cast members back to reprise their roles it would not be the same if someone else had to take them on. I guess this is another reason why Peter Jackson just had to do The Hobbit too. Surely he would have no problem convincing the actors to come back again.

Filming is still scheduled to start in February 2011. So lets hope the next couple of weeks or even days brings us news of more of the LOTR cast members coming back to make appearances in The Hobbit.

Orlando Bloom – Married and going to be a Father!!!

Well it eventually happened one of my most favorite men ever is married and going to be a father, all this has been announced in the past week!!! Unfortunately he did not get to meet me and marry me etc! Like i’ve wanted since seeing fellowship of the ring in 2001 and first setting my eyes on Legolas. Thus began many years of total lust, which may long continue nothing can ever stop that, haha. Anyway I guess I have to say congratulations to Orlando on the news that he is going to be a father, one thing is for sure his child will be gorgeous!
