Fantasy will always cut you off from reality, and what is better than watching a complete, overly fictionalized story, The Lord of the Rings. 

The Lord of the Rings is the World’s most famous trilogy, an extension of already popular fantasy book and film, The Hobbit. The writer J.R.R. Tolkien wrote The Lord of the Rings in a more elaborate version of fantasy, which gets hard to believe.

  • The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring (2001)
