Inspiring, Insightful, and Gorgeous...
27 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a huge fan of The Lord of the Rings films -- as well as books, etc. -- to see a documentary video of Howard Shore's masterful scores for each part of the trilogy is a great treat.

Shore's devotion to making three complex, unique, and operatic scores is not only inspiring, but thanks to this documentary, it is an insightful learning process into the compassionate mind the composer had for The Lord of the Rings, and the gorgeous end-result.

To type much more would seem inappropriate, as there's enough heart, passion, and depth to make these film scores go down in history as masterpieces, and this documentary is proof of such praise. I highly recommend one see this, particularly those that are fans of orchestral music.
