Episode 18 – The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

To commemorate the 20th anniversary of its cinematic release, the Bloobcast revisit the first instalment of Peter Jackson’s legendary Lord of the Rings trilogy – The Fellowship of the Ring.

They discuss how the film adapted the book to the screen, why the Fellowship not taking the eagles to Mordor isn’t a plot hole, the incredible special effects and how well they hold up today, the merits of both the theatrical and extended cuts, and justify the absence of Tom Bombadil.
