His Oscar nomination is well-deserved. Speaking of Elves, I can't help but gush over the handsome and ever-so-talented Orlando Bloom as noble Legolas. Let me tell you why. Their quest to destroy the One Ring is the only hope for the end of the Dark Lords reign! This imaginative foray into J. The Shire was almost exactly as I'd pictured it.
Action Adventure Fantasy Young hobbit Frodo Baggins, after inheriting a mysterious ring from his uncle Bilbo, must leave his home in order to keep it from falling into the hands of its evil creator. Legolas's bowmanship was amazing; he looked so natural loosing his arrows machine-gun style. I believe Tolkien would have liked that. The feelings I had while reading the series were heightened seeing it come to life in the stunning movie. He didn't want them getting in the way of the story of character.
He was my favorite character in the books, and his essence transcends the film. The first time the four hobbits meet a black rider on the road, for example, is absolutely faithful to the feeling of the book. I can't wait for his return. The assault of the riders at Weathertop is another great example, and it captures that feeling of danger, density and atmosphere that are the main characteristics of the tale. Like many others, when I first heard of Jackson's choice, I groaned: but Wood has been extraordinary. Jackson also took some liberties with the story, and made some right choices along the way. It's not so bad playing on the computer but when I play it from my ext-hdd on my tv it's pretty laggy.
Then he could turn around and stun the life out of you with Gandalf the powerful wizard, facing the balrog with defiance and an iron will. It is a powerful film that doesn't fit the rhythm of the standard Hollywood action movie. It is a miracle of this reading of the first volume of the book that one can see where Jackson is going and one can get a feel of how the reading is going to unfold. I could go on and on, talking about all the different elements that bring this film close to perfection, but I'll end saying that deep down, this is not about action, beards and big monsters. The faceoff against the Balrog in the Moria is a memorable sequence, and just shows how strong he really is, to be able to vanquish such a foe. Liv Tyler is ethereal and breathtaking, but at the same time displays the courage and magic that make the Elves the beings they are.
Boromir was hopelessly lost, but at the same time valiant and strong. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring 2001 The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring : An ancient Ring thought lost for centuries has been found, and through a strange twist in fate has been given to a small Hobbit named Frodo. As for the changes, well, I found good reasons behind all of them, and let me tell you right away, I was happy that Arwen saved Frodo, yes, maybe coming from a fan it will look like absolute heresy, but I enjoyed the scene a lot. In the end, this is a wonderful film, but that doesn't mean you are going to like it. I felt more uneasy with how short the Council of Elrond was. When Gandalf discovers the Ring is in fact the One Ring of the Dark Lord Sauron, Frodo must make an epic quest to the Cracks of Doom in order to destroy it! Can't one simply love a story, enjoy reading it a number of times amd lose oneself in it. When Gandalf discovers the Ring is in fact the One Ring of the Dark Lord Sauron, Frodo must make an epic quest to the Cracks of Doom in order to destroy it! My theory is that this error occurred when the uploader combined the two video files in a movie editor and i can imagine it's the same for the other movies of the trilogy they uploaded as well.
Bloom captured the archer's very movements; he treads lightly and fights fearlessly. . Hugo Weaving was very good as Elrond. Like others I was glad to find the video by itself and a small size but it's not playing right for me either. Those who argue the movie cuts too many parts or that it changes the story too much are totally wrong. He was noble and cold at the same time.
Instead of bringing us uninspired kitsch, he serves up raw emotion, graphic battles of good and evil, chilling and wonderful characters, and enough special effects realistic, mind you to make John Cameron's mouth water. Their quest to destroy the One Ring is the only hope for the end of the Dark Lords reign! In a sense, Jackson's real trial - as far as those who know the books are concerned - will come with the second film in the series. Action Fantasy Adventure Assisted by a Fellowship of heroes, Frodo Baggins plunges into a perilous trek to take the mystical One Ring to Mount Doom so that it and its magical powers can be destroyed and never possessed by evil Lord Sauron. Through mountains, snow, darkness, forests, rivers and plains, facing evil and danger at every corner the Fellowship of the Ring must go. I really liked it, but left the theater with as many doubts as I had before. It is the kind of experience that makes you want to go back and reread the whole thing in the light of the emphases that Jackson has brought to the story. Through mountains, snow, darkness, forests, rivers and plains, facing evil and danger at every corner the Fellowship of the Ring must go.
What more can be said of Ian McKellan's showcase portrayal of the wizard? Along the way, a fellowship is formed to protect the ringbearer and make sure that the ring arrives at its final destination: Mt. All of this points to the fact that the film, even though it is a feast of special effects, focuses on character. From the opening 10 min. Pippin and Merry were congenial, slow-witted lads, but very brave nonetheless. Star Wars has been dethroned.
He is joined by Gandalf, Legolas the elf, Gimli the Dwarf, Aragorn, Boromir and his three Hobbit friends Merry, Pippin and Samwise. Peter Jackson directed a film that was considered, for a very long time, impossible to make, and not only for technical reasons. There are no slow spots, just one climax after another. He is well-represented in the movie. The greatest thing about this film, to me, is that it brought me back to a time when I was in love with a different world where everything was possible. He could be Gandalf, the kind old conjurer who set off pyrotechnics for hobbit-children.
