Honest Trailers: The Lord Of The Rings


Posted December 13, 2012 - By Joseph Baxter

It seems surreal that at the strike of midnight, the long-awaited release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will finally be here. Because of that, it's a perfect time to go back, one decade removed, and reexamine the set of films that left fans desperately screaming for more, The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

The folks at Screen Junkies have done just that, giving us an analysis of the Rings films which remind us that heartfelt sacrifices lose some significance when they get reversed with a white wardrobe makeover and that the people of Middle Earth win wars with an unseen powerful weapon that annihilates stuff inconvenient to the plot.

Those who are uninitiated with director, Peter Jackson's Tolkien films should not expect a 90 minute tour de force of disposable action. Instead, these films require a love for fake languages and mythology, artful shots of people walking in grandiose landscapes all over Kiwi country, and, most importantly, a strong bladder. The Hobbit should be no different, so sip those giant sodas at a reasonable pace.

Let us all not forget that in this holiday season, every time a bell rings, Sean Bean dies in something again.
