Lord of the Rings TV series gets multi-season commitment from Amazon

Despite what many people think, I do like to remain optimistic about things. I've been proven wrong too many times to think that initial impressions will always be the correct ones. So while my love of the original Peter Jackson LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy clouds my judgements, I will admit the idea of Amazon's upcoming LORD OF THE RINGS TV show isn't necessarily a...

The Fellowhip of the Ring is (partially) reunited in epic photos

Last year marked the 15th anniversary of LORD OF THE RINGS: THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING, and if that’s not enough to make you feel like an old geezer then certainly a picture of some members of the Fellowship reenacting a scene only days ago certainly will.  Well, Elijah Wood, Billy Boyd, Dominic Monaghan, Orlando Bloom and Viggo Mortensen did just that in some photos posted by...
