      The protagonists of these stories have plenty of opportunities to fall by the wayside, but they don't.

      It tells the story of two main lines, one is the experience of the protagonist Xiao Duo and others overcoming many difficulties on the way to Doomsday Volcano, and the other is the experience of the Ranger and others fighting the villains such as the Demon Lord on the frontal battlefield.

      The Fellowship of the Ring team was forced to disband under the raid of the orc army. Rangers, elves, and dwarves tracked all the way to rescue the captured...

      The filming is OK, but the original plot is not.

      After finishing the Lord of the Rings trilogy at 3x speed + fast-forward, the film is good, but I feel that the original book is too well-known... The plot is procrastinating and boring, even if the characters are thin, the key is the lack of creativity, I feel like the original author made a simple design first. Determined, and then push the plot forward and backward from a point. If the plot is too bland, add a little twists and turns, and increase the setting by the way. The fighting...

      hope, peace, love

      The first part is the opening chapter of the trilogy, and the overall tone is to suppress first, the happy life of Shire in the early stage, and the slightly exciting pursuit of the Nazgul in the middle stage was soon overshadowed by the beauty of Rivendell. But the more lighthearted and joyful these plots are, the more mournful and confused it is when Gandalf and Boromo died in battle and the Fellowship of the Ring fell apart. The second part, as the middle part of the trilogy, must be a...

      Sth is worth fighting for

      Frodo: I can't do this, Sam.

      Sam: I know. It's all wrong. By rights, we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened?

      But in the end, it's only a passing thing this...

      human civilization

      What is human civilization? I personally think that human civilization should be in harmony with all things in the world. This is in line with our current proposition that green waters and lush mountains are invaluable assets. The construction of ecological civilization is a national plan related to human development, rather than having you save me. The battle of death and the battle of success and failure. With the development of economy and society, all kinds of possible things have...

      [210514] The advantage of the extended version is that any character with a name and a surname can have his own POV paragraph. Gollum's scene is really worth scrutinizing; Sam's remarks to Frodo near the end after watching the whole three parts It's definitely shocking; you can bury you in a thread like the reunion of two Rohan villagers with their mother. Compared with the first one, it has a lot less magical flavor, and the overall look is more like a medieval epic war film. The two...

      [4 and a half stars] It became more and more exciting. Frodo, Sam, and Gollum went to Mordor alone. Pippin and Tucker met the Ent tree people in Fangorn Forest. Aragorn and others came to the Kingdom of Rohan. The three story lines go hand in hand, invisibly converging various factors of unity and moving towards the ultimate goal, especially the two major groups of three hundred people in the deep valley facing tens of thousands of enemies, and the Ent tree clan’s angry raid on Saruman base...

      This fight scene really exploded, especially the last war. The special effects and group performances cooperated very well in all aspects. This episode has to be the most awesome Gandalf fighting monsters and upgrading. He is also a mage and a foreign minister. , The credit is huge, I feel the most distressed Gulu, the more I look at it, the more distressed it...

    Movie plot

    The hobbits Meri and Pippin in the Fellowship League were taken away by Ochs, and the Fellows of the Fellowship had to work separately. Frodo and his friend Sam continued to march towards Modu, the territory of Sauron. On the way, they subdued the monster Grum, who was also frantically looking for the Lord of the Rings. The Lord of the Rings once brought him the way of longevity and invisibility until Frodo's predecessors. Bilbo took...

    Behind the scenes gags

    The original novel was originally written in one go, but due to the severe shortage of paper after World War II, the cost of such a thick book was too high, so the author had to divide it into three parts and rename it.
    The crew was fortunate to find a swordsmith who was "like a wrestler" from Wellington. This man used ancient methods to build weapons and never used modern equipment such as airbrushes. Therefore, a sword usually takes 3...

    • [from extended version]

      Legolas: Final count, forty-two.

      Gimli: Forty-two? Oh, that's not bad for a pointy-eared elvish princeling. Hmph! I myself am sitting pretty on forty-THREE.

      Legolas: [takes out an arrow, and shoots the Uruk Gimli is sitting on in the stomach] Forty-three.

      Gimli: He was already dead!

      Legolas: He was twitching.

      Gimli: He was *twitching* because he's got my axe EMBEDDED IN HIS NERVOUS SYSTEM!

      [rattles the handle of his ax; the Uruk's arms and legs twitch]

    • Gamling: Every villager able to wield a sword has been sent to the armory... my lord?

      Theoden: Who am I, Gamling?

      Gamling: You are our king, sire.

      Theoden: And do you trust your king?

      Gamling: Your men, my Lord, will follow you to whatever end.

      Theoden: To whatever end...
