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

"Taidan olla jälleen ainut joka tykkää tästä paikka paikoin jopa sitä Peter Jakcsonin versiotakin enemmän. Sormusten herraa pidettiin aikoinaan mahdottomana filmata, mutta siihen nähden Bakshi on onnistunut jopa yllättävän hyvin.
