Does The Lord of the Rings Hold Up? – Episode 084

January 26, 2017

The Lord of the Rings was an important moment in recent cinema: the scope of its filmmaking and audacity in filming three movies at once, the elevation of the fantasy genre, its pioneering special effects, and much more. But it’s now sixteen years since the first movie was released and much has changed in cinema and fantasy. It seemed like a good time to look at the trilogy and ask how it holds up to a rewatch.

Brent and Erik also check in about their writing. Brent’s novel Three Truths and a Lie, was nominated for an Edgar Award in the YA category. He talks about how this might affect the book and possible future books.
