The Lord of the Rings Trilogy Review
With The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey looming, we faced a problem: how do we tackle Peter Jackson’s epic, 11-hour (if we go by Extended Editions) Lord of the Rings saga without going insane? Ricky D and Simon Howell decided the best course of action was to double down. In this episode, they’re joined by Tolkien fiend Kate Fulzick of the Televerse podcast and Steve Prokopy a.k.a. Capone of Ain’t It Cool News to consider the entire trilogy as a unified entity, as well as weighing the films’ lasting impact on movie and geek culture. This segment was recorded for episode 343 of the Sordid Cinema Podcast (formerly titled, Sound On Sight).
