Rankin Bass did a much better job.

Also, Wizards can eat my rear end. In a pre-millennial way where that means it is bad.

for those unfamiliar with the legend, we are at the millionth birthday of frodo's grandfather, bilbo. he has invited everybody in the village, and is telling him he hates them all while they gaze at him adoringly

I will not shut up about the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. I talk about them all the time and work them into every conversation I have. I built a shrine in my room for the yellow one who died because sadly no one noticed because she died around 9/11. Wanna see it?

its really good they should have let him finish the series

the only bad parts are Bakshi's experimental animation techniques and how they made Sam a loving idiot who looks acts and sounds like he has Downs

it's actually not. his composition, his framing, his backgrounds, all are gorgeous. his characters have incredible expression. he could have drawn a hell of a comic book... but he didn't want to do a comic book! he wanted to do this and by drat he did it

tbh my biggest gripe visually is the colours - so very muddy and brown/green/grey, blugh. it's all so washed out.


posting it like this really makes the blow-up doll face on the bakshi galadriel even more apparent

she's got dem Real Doll eyes

i watched about twenty minutes of it when i was a kid before turning it off in bewilderment, straight after speed-reading my way through the books so i could tell everyone i'd read them, and i think i had the flu too. i have this distant, ghostly memory of blood-red skies and billowing beards that has haunted me all my life

One death is a tragedy, ten deaths is a statistic. Especially if it saves my job.


Itís okay, mightíve been nice if they actually finished 100% of the rotoscoping rather than like 65%

the guy with the pony i thought was sam was actually bilbo looking particularly unusual heading out of town, apparently happily, who knows to where





seventeen years pass sleepily in the shire. we are reunited with frodo, who is overjoyed to be visited by the cascading wizard gandalf



frodo immediately intuites that gandalf's visit is something to do with "the ring, bilbo's funny magic ring" and i suspect that he is right

gandalf requests the ring from frodo, who gives it to him quite happily, and then gandalf just turns and throws the thing in the fire and frodo's like what the gently caress
