Movie Reviews

A "must-have" for any true Tolkien fan.
Midwest Book Review | Oregon, WI USA | 05/12/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Real Middle Earth is an amazing documentary that takes the viewer on a tour of the real-world locations that inspired the fantastic settings of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic fantasy trilogy "The Lord of the Rings", later adapted into popular feature films by director Peter Jackson. From the heritage of European languages that Tolkien drew from to enrich the fantastic languages of Middle Earth, to the real "Dead Marshes" known as the Great War battlefields of the Somme to Saxon burial sites, Warwick and Oxford, and much more, The Real Middle Earth is a singularly inspirational and captivating tour. Bonus features include a profile of Stephen Raw, the official mapmaker of "The Lord of the Rings"; a profile of the prosthetics team behind "The Lord of the Rings" special effects, and extended interviews with Tolkien scholars Helen Armstrong, Patrick Curry, and John Garth. A "must-have" for any true Tolkien fan. 105 minutes, color."
