The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

It’s the third… aaaaah, OK then.

You can go into tedious detail about Jackson taking licence with Tolkien’s magnum opus, but there’s no denying that this trilogy is a masterpiece of ambition and scale, and that there’d never been anything quite like it – and I’m hard pressed to think of anything since.

It’s gotten me thinking about re-reading the books – which is something I’ve not looked at since about 1984 – as well as casually reading WAY too much peripheral detail about Tolkien lore in online forums.

Just an utterly, utterly superb and timeless fantasy epic. 👍
