Masterpiece - LOTR

2010 arrives! First entry of the year! I am wondering what to write?

Well after having spend an extremely lazy weekend, mainly spending time watching movies..guess have nothing better to write than writing about my extreme fondness and appreciation for Lord of the Ring.
I think I might have seen the trilogy atleast 15 times and each time that I see, I can find something new to appreciate about the character, cinematography, music of the dialogues. It's so amazing to see the book been captured into the movie not escaping any emotion that was expressed in the book. The parallel that I can draw to LOTR is the Indian mythology epic " Mahabharata" . These are splendid work of arts written expressing each and every emotion a man can ever go through in his lifetime whether they are the 7 deadly sins or the 7 holy virtues! They got it all for us to see, experience, feel and analyze.

Other than great performances, few quotable quotes of the movie (taken from the JRR Tolkien) are unforgettable-“How do you pick up the threads of an old life? How do you go on, when in your heart you begin to understand there is no going back. There are some things that time can not mend. Some hurts that go too deep... that have taken hold.”
"You cannot always be torn in two. You will have to be one and whole for many years".

Whatever aspect of the movie it is - story, direction, photography, art works, music, it's absolutely flawless and any accolades for the movie will be less.
If JRR Tolkien created a masterpiece, so did Peter Jackson in giving it life and form!
