The movie is spectacular. Once again Lord Aragorn joins forces with Legolas and Gimli as they arrive in Rohan with the help of Gandalf the White the reincarnation of Gandalf the Gray and together free Lord Theodin from his spell placed on him by Souramons spy Wormtongue. A fantastic tail of good vs evil is unveiled in this superbly visual and well recieved film.
In this episode we are introduced to the CGI animated Gollum (Smeagel). This character took on a fantastic life of its own in this film. So well done was the character that you forget within the first few moments of his introduction that he is an animated character and begin to feel a very human connection to the frail and sickly Gollum.
The rings power begins to take its toll on our hero Frodo as Sam and Gollum try to help him make his way to the fires of Mount Doom. Merry and Pippin are thrust into their own adventure as they are introduced to the mighty Tree Imp Tree Beared.
As Souramons powerful army prepares to attack the people of Rohan and destroy the world of men our heros are faced with the worst of themselves and their fading hopes. So not only do they face the evils of MiddleEarth but their own demons as well.
Peter Jackson is an amazing film maker and I will be looking foreward to any projects of his in the future!
Frank Herberts DUNE and the Children of DUNE,
Frank Herbert created a wonderous and frightening world when he wrote the story of DUNE. The potential of man kinds greatest gifts used and abused by the Padasha Emperor and wicked Harkonens. Greed and power still hold sway over the human race till the sleeper Paul Atredes is exposed to the desert world of Arakis and the powerful psychic drug the spice malang. Together with his benegeserat mother and his little sister he befriends the Fremen who see Paul as their mesiah and they drive out the Harkonen hordes and push back the Emperors power over the known universe and Paul is crowned the Quizacs Hadarack. The one that can see into the realms of time space and also use the power of persuasion.
I've been a huge fan of the Dragonlance novels since I read the chronicles back when I was twenty. I fell in love with the magical characters and their wonderous adventures. Margret Weis and Tracy Hickman proved themselves two of the very best fantasy writers and made their mark along side such authors as Tolkien.
The characters are so in depth and amazingly well written that in some way you will always find a way to relate to their plite. From the dark and mysterious Raistlin to the playful and care free Tasslehoff.
