Remember when Peter Jackson's epic Lord of the Rings trilogy came out, and it was awesome, and suddenly it became kinda cool to be a Tolkien nerd, and everybody knew who Gollum was?

Well, it wasn't the first adaptation of Lord of the Rings.


Oh yes. THAT movie. Tolkien fans know of what I speak, although people who only know of Peter Jackson's adaptations won't be familiar with this... or the crappy Return of the King movie that came after, which cast RODDY MCDOWELL as Sam. What?

Anyway, focus focus. This movie sucks, and I plan to explore why.

  • Lord of the Rings 1978 Part 1
  • Lord of the Rings 1978 Part 2
  • Lord of the Rings 1978 Part 3
  • Lord of the Rings 1978 Part 4
