Tolkien talks in this movie like OZZY LOL
26 February 2003 | by (Galveston,Tex) – See all my reviews

I have read all tolkien books, The Lord of the Rings 3 times. Seen all the cartoon tolkien movies, and seen the 1st two Rings movies Peter Jackson has created. I was at Wal Mart the day after Christmas and saw a bucket $4 DVD's. AMong em was Jaws, The Exorcist, Presumed Innocent , others and Master of the Ring. Being a Tolkien fan I bought it. The 1st time i watched it I would give it 5/10 but for some reason i wanted to watch the 80 minute feature again and again and aaaaaagain. It has the whole story is sort of interesting and hearing Tolkien talk is Hilarious. He talks exactly exactly exactly like Ozzy Ozbourne. Well its a great DVD for $$$$$$$$$$$$$ I give it 6/10 on entertainment but 13/10 for enjoinment for the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.
