Ink to Film

May 9, 2019

The Battle of Helm’s Deep set the standard for medieval warfare put to screen, but there’s a lot else in The Two Towers that’s worth revisiting. Peter Jackson’s masterwork continues with part two of The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien, the difficult-to-do middle movie in the epic trilogy. Luke & James discuss all the ways it succeeds and its occasional missteps along the way.

Topics: Andy Serkis’ legendary portrayal of Gollum, the saggy middle, the absence of the battle with Shelob from the film, Elijah Wood as Frodo and beyond, a soapbox moment about the accusations of “Mary Sue” in today’s culture, Eowyn & Arwen’s role in this male-dominated movie, Faramir’s changes from book to movie, a spoiler-free comparison with Game of Thrones season 8x03, the carryover from this movie into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a quick BOOK GIVEAWAY announcement for GOOD OMENS, and a final decision is made about which film we like better!
