I love watching "making of" documentaries that follow the journey that filmmakers take in order to see their dreams come true. This documentary is unique in the fact that they show where the story came from, the struggle it had to be accepted, its rise and fall in fame, and its final culmination at the top. The Lord of the Rings is one of the most interesting stories ever made. It wowed readers back in the 50's, found a younger and hipper crowd through the 60' s and 70's, tried to find a new audience in the world of animation, and finally fell out of all knowledge for almost 30 years (much like the ring of power). I think that these 'Lord of the Rings' films are more popular than the original 'Star Wars' saga for the simple fact that all ages and all interest groups come together to watch 'Lord' while, I feel, the 'Star Wars' fans are very unique and one of a kind. I think this documentary pairs very well to all the extras that are with the extended versions of all three films. If you're a fan of the movies or if you're curious about where it all began or if you want to see some pretty obsessive fans, then check this out.
