Review: ‘The Return of the King’

Yes, it’s finally time to review the third and final installment of Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings film trilogy! I keep saying it in each of the previous parts of this review series, but there’s really almost nothing bad about these movies. I’ll take it one step further: there is almost nothing about …

Review: ‘The Two Towers’

Welcome to the second part of my review of Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy! As I mentioned in Part 1, these reviews are specifically about the films, not the books. So please don’t be upset if I talk about something that’s not in the books or neglect something that is in the …

Review: The Fellowship of the Ring

Two things have inspired this new series of blog posts: one was fellow blogger and author Berthold Gambrel’s series of reviews of 90’s action movies, and the other was a post on Twitter asking users to name four movies that they find to be flawless masterpieces.

But as for …

Happy Birthday, J.R.R. Tolkien!

129 years ago, one of the greatest authors in human history was born in Bloemfontein, South Africa: J.R.R. Tolkien. As I’ve said many times before, Tolkien is the reason I began to write in the first place. It was after reading The Lord of the Rings that I knew I wanted to tell a story …

Tolkien’s masterpiece The Lord of the Rings is a giant in literature: Frodo, Samwise, Aragorn the King, Gandalf the Grey/White, they are all as famous and well-known as real heroes like Gandhi and MLK.

Slow Down and Read the Fluff

While on Goodreads today, I came across a couple reviews of Tolkien’s masterpiece “The Lord of the Rings”. If you’ve been following me for a while, I don’t need to remind you that I believe it’s one of the greatest stories in human history and was my inspiration to begin writing. The reviews I saw …
