The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the RingRegisserad avPeter Jackson
A wonderful introduction to Middle Earth that can absorb even the most casual fan of the fantasy adventure genre. The film's beauty and lush environments hold up in 2017. Some have called the character development a slog, but it sets up something rather spectacular to come.
The greatest moments in all of Jackson's hexalogy are in the first hour of Fellowship, when the world is large and unknown to us, full of wonder and perils. The sequences involving the shadowy menace of the Nazgul are great filmmaking—particularly the montage at the Prancing Pony and the chase at night in the woods.
After a recent viewing, "Fellowship" remains my favorite film in the trilogy. It's a great introduction to the world of Middle Earth and yet it feels like a complete story from beginning to end rather than a mere installment like the other two. The fellowship is formed and ultimately fails, and we get Boromir's entire character arc in one movie. "Fellowship" has a seductive magic; nothing feels perfunctory.
I want to give it five stars simply for the undertaking. However, the fact that Bombadil is MIA is tragic - symbolizing the overt possibility that a full and genuine adaptation is unattainable. Even with that said, I still feel like PJ took the low road at times, opting for more action/melodrama and less poetry. It wasn't quite as bad as Lucas or Cameron in that regard, but somewhat lazy all the same.
My favorite of the trilogy. It carried a sense of the fantastic that the other film gradually lost (because of the plot not the direction). It was so fresh and charming and dangerous and beautiful. If met and exceeded all of my expectations and became a grandly deserving classic.
I was dreading rewatching Fellowship of the Ring afraid it wouldn't hold up & I'm very happy my fears were unjustified. It's still magnificent with very few missteps and does not look like a ten year-old movie. Peter Jackson's attention to detail is magnificent and I'm now over the fact that Guillermo Del Toro isn't directing The Hobbit.
Jackson imbues the film with a liveliness and verve by plays with film textures and Raimi-esque flourishes like whip pans and crash zooms. He has much more fun with a scene like growing the orcs than with bringing the fellowship together. Somehow even the CGI hasn't aged that poorly, but the real visual "effects" are simply in the attention to detail payed in the locations, production design, costumes, etc.
