Country: New Zealand
still a good film, though some of the effects are a little opaque by today’s standards. the essence here, though, is in the characters and the battle between the evil of the ring and how that interacts with each person. this time around i was looking at it as a story that upholds the fundamental worth of each person. despite race, each person in the fellowship brings something unique and necessary to further the goal of destroying the ring. it’s a long film (we [sean and i] watched the extended version), but it plays well.
