I remember when I heard of the first movie being made. Now, I didnt know "Lord Of The Rings" from "Lord Of The Flies" back then. So I had no idea what the big deal was. Id heard of "The Hobbit" and maybe even read parts of the book as a child. But I dont recall it being something that made a lasting impression on me. However, Ive always been a fan of fantasy in the form of knights, kings etc. King Arthur and the knights of the round table always peaked my hero side as a child. You have your army guy kid that rat-a-tat-tats and then there are those that slew man and beasts with our cardboard shields and wooden swords. I was the later child. When I finally educated myself about what this "Lord Of The Rings" hype was all about and read some of the book, I was very excited to see the movie. At the time it was as big an event as could be for each movie to come out. Maybe not since Star Wars had I been into a series of movies like I was with "Lord Of The Rings". I thought they were fantastic. For personal reasons I hadnt watched them in probably 12-15 years. Quite frankly they simply brought back memories of a time in my life that a long term relationship went bad. Anyway, the hurt healed and movies kind of forgotten, I saw that Netflix was showing the last two movies of the trilogy. I was once again in the mood to join the fellowship and revisit the movies. How did they hold up after nearly two decades? Im pleased to say that for me they still stand as very good films. I could probably say that there are many points in the movie that become a bit sappy. But this is a romantic adventure fantasy. Some sap is just fine. I love the story. I still found myself getting absorbed into the characters and action. Not an easy trilogy to make Id imagine and one that still is mostly a triumph. How has this trilogy held up for you? Has it stood the test of time?
