The Lord Of The Rings (2001)

The Fellowship Of The Ring (59:41) Clean, nothing to offend your ears.

LOTR

We end the T100P with a cliffhanger! LOTR: FOTR clearly represents the entire trilogy, which is good for us because we spent a lot of this ‘cast talking about the 2 sequels. The cast is terrific, the F/X & overall look are extraordinary and J.R.R. Tolkien’s story of a hero’s journey is a classic. It’s also just a bit goofy.
