Fun.... But for fans only.By a customer from Godalming , 16 Jan 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]I wasn't expecting much from this Documentary on The Lord Of The Rings and it's incarnations and fans, so I was pleasantly surprised. This is not a re-run of Trekkies, so on the whole the Rings fans come out of this film rather well. It's a light hearted look at the history of TLOTR from the first publication of the book through to the release of Peter Jackson's Trilogy. Enjoyable, but one for fans only I think.
ringers lord of the fansBy plumby68 (18 reviews) from aldershot , 07 Jul 2006not very impressed with this documentary i have seen better docs on the rings and the fans
CuteBy Dominic Davies from England , 11 Apr 2006A cute little memory of the Tolkin joy that hit us a few years back. Although we may not all queue up for 5 days to see the most recent Lord of the Rings film, all Tolkin Fans share the same love for compassion, bravery and fellowship. This film is a nice easy watch, with some comical moments. One of those MTV shows about how big something got. Worth a watch if you are a geek, or atleast, like geeky things. 'WERE NOT GEEKS, WERE RINGERS'
HAHA that worse??
Not quite my preciousBy webber6969 (7 reviews) from Caerphilly , 16 Feb 2006If interested in the phenomenum of the recently released films, as well as to find out some of the origins of the books then this is a good place to start. Although it is mainly aimed at portraying the feelings and views of the fans of the lord of the rings or 'ringers', which does border line on the obsessive (most of them being American could go a long way to explain this!), this documentary is a good way of spending an hour and a half in the compnay of fellow fans of the books/films/music of middle earth.
Some of the extras are interesting (especially the one with five minutes of the guy who you only get a glimpse of in the documentary, who goes absolutely mental when asked why he likes/loves lord of the rings), however it was annoying in other extras when they started to repeat the same information and scenes from the feature which i had just watched!
P.s. try and watch this doc. and not rock your head to the song Where there's a whip, there's a way.
Duller than the skys of MordorBy a customer from Yorkshire , 20 Jan 2006Well I am a big fan of Lord of the Rings, having read the books several times and loved the Peter Jackson films. However, I can honestly say that this particular dvd was absolutely dreadful.
I expected a little more, but this was just a chance to look at how some fans take things to the extreme, dressing up in costumes and such like. I found myself skipping through the dvd after about 15 minutes of watching because it was just dull. I also found the cartoony graphics throughout very tiresome.
In short, dont waste your time renting this unless you want to see some over the top fans thinking they are actually characters from the story, which is pretty much all this dvd is. Shame I couldnt give it a negative rating.
