TCP 49: LOTR Return of the King

Hello Couchers! Welcome to the July 27th edition of Tuesday Couch Potatoes where we post about a movie each week. So this week's week them is Slightly Historic, Slightly Epic. There have been many movies made which have a historical sweep, visual grandeur, and some heroism, however crazy or ultimately unsuccessful.These epic tales of great adventures are what has kept me glued on my seat and had me wanting to watch for more. If you are a lover of this genre, I know that you would be able to name more than just one film. So come and join us this week!

My pick will of course be from my favorite trilogy of all time: The LOTR The Return of the King. It wraps up the LOTR trilogy perfectly well, both in the movie and the book, and did not fail my expectations. In this part of Frodo's journey, he is now entirely corrupted by the Ring yet he marches still to Mordor to destroy it, with the aid of Sam. The Ring hisses louder in his ears, the world is falling to the shadow. Sauron, the Dark Lord, moves to strike the city of Minas Tirith, the heart of men, in the most spectacular and huge and amazing battle in cinematic history.

The final chapter in the Lord of the Rings is easily, in my mind, the best one. It wraps up the monumental story perfectly, and is not afraid to deal with the dark subject matter. This film holds back no punches, and watching the innocent Frodo move ever deeper into temptation is horrifying. But it is also beautiful, and shows that even in the most horrible and infested places, still there is beauty, and still there is hope.

With great music, great acting, phenomenal special effects, and a story second to none, I can say that the best epic movie of all time is this: the Return of the King. 

One of the unforgettable quotes from the film: "A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of woes and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down, but it is not this day. This day we fight!"
