The Lord of the Rings

  1. Prepare Yourself For Final The Hobbit Release Today By Watching All 212,470 Deaths In Lord Of The Rings

    There! I'm numb to emotional pain now!

    Total humblebrag, but I saw Battle of the Five Armies at the Toronto premiere and Peter Jackson sat directly behind me because he had never seen it in IMAX before. I have never been so conscious of how I react while watching a film. Also, Lee Pace looks glorious in a plaid suit. That is all.

  2. Ian McKellan Teaches Cookie Monster About Self Control By Presenting Him With THE RING OF SAURON ITSELF

    One cookie to rule them all.

    Ah, yes, I remember that passage of The Two Towers well. You know, the one where Cookie Monster is all, "Not were Minas Tirith falling in ruin and me alone could save her, so, using weapon of Dark Lord for good and glory. Me not wish for such triumphs, Frodo son of Drogo.” and then Frodo is like "Okay great, but can I have my chocolate chip cookies back?" and then Cookie Monster roars "NO NEVER, MINE ME OWN ME PRECIOUS OM NOMN NOM NOM," and then Sam cries a bunch.

    Lena, aka Nokeek on DeviantArt, has created a few nerd-themed holiday cards we thought you might like. Mostly because they feature Doctor Who, Sherlock and other British favorites. And we threw in a few others we thought you might like as well.

  4. Eye of Sauron Installation in Russia Halted Because the World Is Joyless and/or Orthodox Church Criticism

    ♪ We could've had it aaaaaaaaaaaaaall ♪

    I may be only a moderate Lord of the Rings/Tolkien fan, but I am a massive "Eye of Sauron hovering ominously over Moscow" fan. The Orthodox Church of Russia doesn't quite see... eye to eye with me on that one, and they're ruining it for everyone.

  5. Don’t Let Ian McKellen Make You Overly Optimistic About More Lord of the Rings Films

    Those were the stories that stayed with you.

    Ian McKellen isn't ruling out the possibility of more films set in Middle-Earth, but you probably shouldn't get your hopes up.

  6. Check Out This Amazing Hobbit House for Rent in LA. No, really.

    Utilities and invisibility rings not included.

    Just don't get too comfortable there. When Frodo gets back from Valinor, I assume you're going to have to find a more human-sized place to live.

  7. It’s Galadriel vs. Leia In The Latest Princess Rap Battle

    "How's Alderaan doing? Oh sorry, too soon?"

    Sorry Galadriel, but today of all days? Leia wins.

  8. Everything That Happens In The Tolkien Universe After The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

    First things first: Yes, even before Peter Jackson sat down to make the film, we knew what would happen after The Hobbit. The Lord of the Rings, all 480,000-plus words of it, was already a fairly excessive sequel to one children’s book. But if you know anything at all about John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, it won’t surprise you that it doesn’t end there.

  10. Air New Zealand Has Done Another Cameo-Filled, LotR-Themed Safety Briefing

    Dean O'Gorman, why are you wearing a seatbelt you are on a horse.

    I may not get to cavort around New Zealand anytime soon—something about it costing money, I dunno—but at least I get to watch "The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made." You milk those Middle Earth movies, Air New Zealand. You milk them as long as you possibly can.
