Super exciting news that on Sunday 5pm UK time we will be getting an amazing Lord of the Rings reunion thanks to Josh Gad!
Sean Astin, Elijah Wood, Dominic Monaghan, Billy Boyd, Orlando Bloom and Ian McKellen show how amazing this is going to be in the preview alone. This could well be the best thing to happen in lockdown!
As a lifelong ringer I am so excited for this it has to be said! Fellowship of the Ring is the very film that really sparked my love for cinema and movies!
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!

That is right it has been confirmed that Amazon have bought the rights to Lord of the Rings to create a truly epic TV Series, they want to attempt to rival Game of Thrones and the success that has had in a similar type of set up.
The deal is said to be close to $250 million just to secure the global TV rights, so if they are willing to spend that much just on the rights just imagine what they are going to do with it!

I have recently seen this posters/covers around on DVDs and then they have started popping up on Amazon Video as well. They are very impressive and I keep searching for more of them, they seem to be Warner Bros films and they are just great!
With a nice quote from the film on them as well, which seems to be the most popular quote. I think these are really cool and will keep searching for more!

My 15 year celebration for Fellowship of the Ring continues with 15 incredible quotes!
Read More »
Its official I feel extremely old today as it is 15 years since Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring was released at the cinema. You should already know that this is the one film that changed it all! This was actually a really tough thing to do and only pick 15!
It really kick started my extreme love for film and wanting to watch as many as possible. I was blown away by the start of the adventure and forming of the Fellowship. It was showing us that when faced with great evil people from all different backgrounds will unite to stop it. I think that is reassuring if nothing else, we get to learn about the different people and our first look into Middle Earth.
The Middle Earth Peter Jackson managed to create really was something else, we get so many breathtaking shots throughout the film, so I thought as part of the celebration that I would pick 15 of my favourite. You will have to see if I mange to pick all of yours, or if I have missed something you love!

This is inspired from the Ian McKellen obsession as well as the crazy news of the Ultimate Middle Earth Box Set being announced.
I can feel that a re-watch of the films soon Extended Editions of course! Along with plenty more blog posts. Not forgetting an inspired Blogathon!
In the past couple of days it has been announced that the biggest ultimate edition of Middle Earth is going to be available. That includes all three Lord of the Rings films and all three of The Hobbit films.
On both Blu Ray and DVD extended and theatrical editions, as well as codes to download the digital versions of all films as well. A truly incredible thing that I would just love, but the price is a bit crazy $799.99! I haven’t currently found anything about the UK release.
Apparently though this is not the ultimate edition Peter Jackson wants us fans to have, he had something else in mind with new footage and special features. Maybe we have to hope that will still happen!
