The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy is and always be special to me in more ways than one. It is without a doubt my favorite movie trilogy and contains three of my favorite actors/actresses. Viggo Mortessen, Liv Tyler and of course Orlando Bloom. Liv Tyler is without a doubt my hero i pretty much worship the ground she walks on and she is actually the reason i first went to see the movie.
I had read the books of course but the prequel ‘The Hobbit’ was my favorite. I can still recall my Dad reading me all of the books when i was very young. In 2001 he did something else special for me. He asked me what movie i would like to see in Cinema. I had actually never been to the theater and since the “Fellowship Of The Ring” had just come out i chose that. My dad bought us both tickets.
As an 11 year old, seeing the stories my Dad had read to me come to life on the big screen was simply phenomenal. When the “Two Towers” came out i begged my dad to take me again. I eagerly waited the release of “Return Of The King” and was not disappointed for a moment.
In 2007 my dad bought me the box set with all three DVD’s for my birthday. Sadly it was the last birthday present I ever got from him. He passed away august of 2008 and i still miss him.
“The Lord of The Rings” to me is something to remember him by. How he spent the time to find something we both loved and then do it with me and every time i watch i can’t help but wish we were back in the theater seeing them for the first time. Having the time of our lives.
