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!

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!

15 Amazing Shots in Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring

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!
