On the 9th installment of our Missing Pieces series, Josh Bell and Jason Harris from Awesome Movie Year join me to talk about Peter Jackson’s adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord Of The Rings. This crossover episode follows up the Awesome Movie Year episode on the 2003 Best Picture Winner, The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King. After rewatching the whole trilogy, the three of us thought this epic series would make a perfect entry in the Missing Pieces series looking at films that inspired them, and films they inspired.
As always, SPOILER ALERT for The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy and the movies we discuss!
Director – Peter Jackson
Writer – Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh
Starring Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Viggo Mortensen, Andy Serkis, Sean Astin, Orlando Bloom
