Animated feature length movie directed by cult director Ralph Bakshi that covers the first two books of the LOTR trilogy, Fellowship and Two Towers. The studio, United Artists, refused to fund a sequel despite the film being a great financial success (it cost $3 million to produce and grossed over $30 million, approx. $100 million in today's money). They also reneged on a promise to release the mo... read more

My oh my, what could have been when it comes to an animated version of The Lord of the Rings. Has a fantasy property been more perfectly suited to the medium than J.R.R. Tolkien’s fantasy epic? It’s a pity that the film which we were dealt is so inept on every conceivable level. Rumor has it that Walt Disney sought the rights to the property, and just think what his team of animators could ha... read more

" First Viewing Viewing Date: November 19th Via: Blu-ray Plot: The Fellowship of the Ring embark on a journey to destroy the One Ring and end Sauron's reign over Middle-earth. Rating: 6.7/10 Why Did I Watch It? Considering my love for Peter Jackson's movies and of Tokien's works, this was a long overdue watch."

Kyle Ellis posted a review 1 year, 10 months ago

“I really liked this movie, and it is true, too many people compare it to the Peter Jackson films. Even more impressive was that they fitted two books into one film, many people consider that a mistake and that things were missed out, when actually considering the books aren't very easy to adapt, I thought this film wasn't too bad an attempt. The animation was very impressive, a little dated by our standards, but bear in mind people it was made in the 70s and that it is lower budget than that of Disney or Pixar. The music was very well done especially the orks' march to Isanguaard, very haunting indeed. Though speaking of the orks, a very young audience will find them very frightening, and will be deterred by the sight of blood. The film is also overlong and a bit slow, but anyone who's see” read more
