An unprecedented cinematic triumph...

"The battle of Helm's Deep is over; the battle for Middle Earth is about to begin..."

Through my eyes, Peter Jackson's much-anticipated and much-glorified The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King is the paradigmatic example of a perfect movie. The cinematic journey that initiated on Boxing Day 2001 and quickly received worldwide acclaim ultimately came to a conclusion with this... read more

A movie about a famous fantasy novel series that I've never read. And even though, I felt a bit lost through out certain plot elements, there was enough in this thickly layered tale of wizards, faeries, hobbits & bug-eyed emo moppets to allow me to loosely fill in the blanks to make at least, an over-all blanketed sense out of the whole damn thing.
And even though this was a great series, ... read more

What your favorite movie (really) says about you.. (57 movies items)

"If the Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King is your favorite movie...you are similarly a Tolkien fan, and truly love discussing the beauty and magnitude of perfection that is this film, and - as you say - truly deserving of all the Oscar-praise. If you are ever to be asked by the Actors' Studio, that famed question re heaven: You would say that you would like to be greeted by the splendiferous crowd that was depicted in the last scene of this film.

Pretty much outstanding

“I admit it, I love all three Lord of the Rings films. People may say Return of the King is the best of the trilogy, some may say it is the worst. I personally think Two Towers is the best for its scope and better exploration of some of the characters, but while it is still great Return of the King is better than Fellowship of the Ring.My only slight disappointment is the ending, it does feel overlong and bloated for me, almost as if there was more than one ending filmed. That said, what does make the ending at least watchable for me is the way it is shot, the marvellous score and the performance of Gollum.Despite this minor discrepancy, Return of the King is extremely good and in my view one of the better Best Picture winners last decade. Peter Jackson's direction is very impressive here, ” read more

“Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee are guided by Gollum to the darkest of Mordor. Gandalf leads the group to to Isengard where they are surprised to find Merry and Pippin having already defeated Saruman. Pippin touches the crystal ball and Sauron mistakenly assumes that he is the ring bearer. Gandalf and Pippin travel to Gondor's capital Minas Tirith but they find mad Denethor on the throne.

The quest comes to an end. There is a ton of CGI and it's state of the art. It is fully deserving of the moniker epic. It comes to a climatic apocalyptic battle at Minas Tirith. Then the movie has to keep going for another hour. That can't be helped but the battle in front of the Black Gate is no more than anti-climatic. Also Aragorn releasing the Dead Men struck me as short-sighted heroism. So” read more

nopatsjim14 posted a review 1 year, 5 months ago

“Many times the third film of a Trilogy is considered the WORST. This was the exact opposite. This is (to me anyway) the greatest third film EVER. No, Return of the Jedi or the third Hobbit or Toy Story 3 does not measure up to The Return of the King. It is not too often you cheer a character dies, but when Gollum did, it felt that way!” read more
