The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring – Extended Edition

I have waited what feels like forever to witness the Extended Editions of The Lord of the Rings on the big screen. This is a very special moment as I am now sat in the cinema waiting for this film to start. Fellowship is the film that made me really fall in love with films and how they were made. So basically if it wasn’t for this film I very much doubt Let’s Go To The Movies would be around today!

RIP Ian Holm

Rest in Peace to legendary actor Sir Ian Holm who has passed away today at the age of 88, he had been battling with Parkinson’s disease but it was announced that it was peaceful with his family around him.

He had an incredible career working in theatre from the Royal Shakespeare Company and starring as King Lear then into the movie world with Alien, Chariots of Fire and my favourite Lord of the Rings. A message was passed from him unable to join the Zoom reunion. Goodby Bilbo Baggins ❤️

Lord of the Rings – Cast Reunion!

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!

Today is World Book Day and what better way to celebrate on a film blog than putting together a list of 7 films that are based on books? I thought it was a great idea too, the thing with the list though is that I have to have read the book and seen the film for it to make the list.

Here are my choices . . .

POP! Figure – Gandalf and Gwaihir

Getting an email about this new POP figure is something that really excited me! As you should be well aware by now I am a massive Lord of the Rings fan and Gandalf is one of the greatest characters of all time. I really feel this needs to be my first big special POP figure!
