Wow, I am so going to watch that... we needed some more looks into the world of Middle-Earth and now we are going to get some of Aragorn's story which looks really amazing!

I cannot believe it is all free though, but how wonderful! And I must say I like the characters, they are amazing as Gandalf and Aragorn and whatnot

It looks really interesting... I will definitely be watching it... the guy they got to play Aragorn is pretty close, although nothing beats Viggo. :P

Can't wait for it to come out.

WOW, that's really impressive, a film made by fans for fans... must be some pretty wealthy and resourceful fans! :P
But it looks very interesting! :-)

Yeah, that was my thought. I was speaking to Arsarniel, who is no longer active around here, and she can't get over their Aragorn---as in unimpresed by him

This is really impressive. Yay fans! XD Fandom to the extreme man! :P

I'm interested in seeing this, just to see what it's about and all that good stuff.

There was a little article on it on NPR the other day. I have to say, when it gets to NPR, then it's kind of a big deal. XD

I wasn't impressed by Aragorn at all... I mean I'm sure he's a great actor, I just couldn't accept that he wasn't Viggo... :P It might have been easier if they had aimed to play the characters like themselves instead of imitating the real LotR cast... Sorry, I'll get over myself.. I just need.. time... that's all...

I just saw it, and I gotta say that the guys did a very good job on it. I mean, of course we all do want to see Viggo, but if you think about it twice, the actor wasn't so bad after all! The landscapes looked fantastic, and the CGI effects were quite impressive, considering the low budget they actually had for this film. :D
I didn't like the actress who played Arwen, though. She was... well, of course she wasn't Liv Tyler, but she wasn't even pretty... :-(

Overall, I really liked it. It's a nice piece for fans, and I think they got they "Tolkien feeling" across very well.

Go watch it! :)

I just saw it too... there were some beautiful landscapes.... a lot of them actually!! The acting was alright, but Arwen was quite... unfortunate indeed... no offence... unless to her, of course! But she sure had an alternative beauty! :teehee:
Umm and Gandalf.. in the end... he looked like a mad man in a dirty night gown... oh, but other than that.. it was pretty good. Aragorn was good and the orcs a true copy of the real ones!

And a last thing, the sounds was really low on my computer and I never figured how to put subtitles so I missed some of the dialogue...

^Haha, I loved the bit about Gandalf :roll:

I'm glad you liked it. :) I have to admit I felt a bit irritated by Aragorn - there is some Frodo-ish look about him, especially his eyes and nose :P It's fine, but it still confuses me.

I had the same problem with the sounds, too. As for the subtitles, you have to click "Menu" on the right hand bottom. :)

I thought this movie was really well done. It was filmed superbly and the acting was really good. My favorite part had to be the interaction between Gollum and Aragorn, though.

^ I agree with smeag.
I liked the movie quite a lot. Though it was also hard for me to watch it with a different cast from the original- honestly I can't imagine anyone else being Gandalf, Aragorn and Arwen then Ian McKellen, Viggo Mortensen and Liv Tyler. But when we let's put this aside the movie was quite impressive-the costumes, the locations, everything. Really well done. As a fan I felt really fascinated. :)
Thanks Ivreniel for informing us!

Thanks to the ones who made this awesome movie! :notworthy:
