It took me over 21 years to begin watching the Lord of the Rings movies. I just finished disc two of the Fellowship of the Ring (extended version). I won’t lie, it’s pretty darn amazing. One does not simply watch Lord of the Rings and not enjoy it. I encourage you to share your thoughts about Lord of the Rings, but NO SPOILERS. While you’re formulating your LOTR comment, enjoy these links.
