Top Reasons Why We Love ‘The Lord of the Rings’ Trilogy

There are four kinds of people in the world — those who have read the Lord of the Rings trilogy, those who have watched it; those have done both, and those who have never heard of it. If you belong in any of the first three, then chances are you may even be one of the many fans that followed the adventures of the characters in the books or on the films. It may or may not be the best fantasy ever written depending on who you ask. But for the LOTR geeks out there, there is much to love about the film. Here are just some of the top reasons why.

The epicness of the story

LOTR takes you from the Shire and across the Middle Earth. It is like traipsing on another world with the characters that you will either grow to love or hate. Everything about the story is epic. And at some point, the line between reality and fantasy seems to blur taking you along for the biggest ride of your life. From beginning to end, LOTR grips and never lets go. Leaving bittersweet feelings at the finish.

The characters

It is easy to get emotionally invested on the characters. Bilbo, Gandalf, Frodo, Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli are just some of the characters that will draw out all sorts of emotions. Each part in the story is so well-woven that it is hard to imagine a tale without any one of them.

The life lessons

LOTR trilogy

The LOTR trilogy is a goldmine of life lessons. There are simply too many to list. But courage, compassion, friendship, loyalty, and grit are among the top things that come to mind. It shows different kinds of courage, but what stands out was the bravery the hobbits showed when faced with the biggest and darkest challenges of their lives. Bilbo, Frodo, Sam, Pippin, and Merry are just among the loveable characters who taught millions of readers across generations about the hobbits’ brand of courage. The compassion shown at some points to Gollum likewise shaped the outcome of the characters’ epic journey to destroy the ring. It teaches us that even a small act of kindness even to what may seem like a vile creature can be a ripple that could lead to something good.

Oh-So-Good Horror Movies Involving Saws That You’ll Want To Binge On Again And Again

As we all know, and as far as some people insist when it comes to power tools, saws are only used to cut down raw materials like wood in a precise manner – and yes, in an easier way than any other tools out there known to man.

As we also know, and as far as other people insist when it comes to power equipment, saws are just used to trim up used materials like pole in a flexible manner – and yes again, in a more convenient way than any other tools out there known to man.

But did you know about those movies involving saws that you might want to binge one?

Trust us when we say that after watching one, you will never see saws that simply again.

Here are some of them:

Saw II

The reason for this specific horror movie being listed here is quite simple. It’s unexpectedly good despite the gore in every second of the movie, as well as unpredictably satisfying despite the spiral in every minute of the movie. As compared to other movies in the Saw franchise by – yes, the same ones who also created box-office hit Insidious – James Wan and Leigh Whannell (Adam from the first movie), Saw II practically brought out the best in what seems to be the worst in John Kramer a.k.a. Jigsaw.

You see, for him, life is a precious thing – even for who are diagnosed with terminal ailments like himself. But you also see, for him, life is an unfair thing – especially for those who are wasted with terminal vices like them: the victims of Jigsaw’s live-or-die traps. Then again, you need to watch the movie to see what we’re talking about here.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Sure, this is just another horror movie that took the world by storm back in the day. But when you see it, we’re sure you’ll see bricks – no thanks to the kind of fear Leatherface himself can give you for nights and probably years. The way it was filmed, gore and everything in between, is simply one that couldn’t be forgotten that easily.

One great thing about it, though, is its aesthetic – just enough to make every viewer get scared like heck, as well as inclined to know more about what would happen next (if the protagonists will survive, if the antagonist will die, etc.).
