Good over view of the world of JRR Tolkien and how it has affected popular culture will thrill fans and make non-fans wonder when its going to end
15 October 2006 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

This is a documentary about JRR Tolkien, his Lord of the Rings and the fans who love it.

Its an informative little film that tells you a great deal about its subjects, but for me, a fan but not a FAN, its way too much material for a 100 minute movie. Its not bad, not by a long shot, but the only ones I think who are going to be hanging on to the bitter end of this film are the ones who are its subject, the fans. Its just over kill in a big way. Of course those who want a Cliff Notes version of the world of Tolkien and how its affected the world, and the fans, since its publication will find the perfected starting point. The rest of us will be ready to turn it off after twenty minutes.
