Ha, found it again.

"The Trouble of the Rings"(lgt website)

trailer for all three parts

The movies are on vimeo, too; about 75 minutes each.
I just love all the cute little ideas.

IIRC I found this parody when I was looking for something like "hobbits hiding" for a PS contest and had the image below with the girls in their fuzzy slippers among the GIS results.


Frodo: Do you want my Ring?
Galadriel: The Ring? Alas, Article 18 clause 7 prohibits importing rings of power to Valinor.

Sam: What do you think, Mr. Frodo, will we ever be put in legends or tales?
Frodo: Of course. We'll even be put in a book. And they might shoot another movie as well.
Sam: And it will get 11 Academy Awards!

Aragorn: This is Rohan. We need to be careful from now on. We're homeless, jobless and have no papers.

Persnickety: Actually, your link is from the 1980 Rankin/Bass "Return of the King". It's from a part of the story that Peter Jackson left out: Frodo and Sam disguise themselves as orcs and march with an orc army so that they can get across the plains of Mordor. In the Peter Jackson version, once they get past Shelob, they magically teleport to Mt. Doom.


The orc army march is in the extended cut of the film, as is the whole march to Mount Doom. Even in the theatrical version you get much of the march to Mount Doom, albeit in truncated form.

zvoidx: Is it really accurate to say "The Soviets" made a film?


Wasn't that the whole idea of communism?  Basically one big "you didn't build that" experience?

duckpoopy: It can't be worse than the 1970s cartoon version released in the US. What hideous animation.


You sir, have absolutely no taste. That cartoon was far better than the movie now in theaters.

A Terrible Human: FeedTheCollapse: NeoCortex42: duckpoopy: It can't be worse than the 1970s cartoon version released in the US. What hideous animation.

It was still a great adaptation of the book, though. And it's probably still the best adaptation for children to see.

it's been a while since I've seen the movie, but yeah I don't remember The Hobbit animated film being at all bad. I even kind of like the Bakshi version of LOTR, though mostly because I thought the Nazgul were a bit more otherworldy and terrifying in that version than Jackson's version.

The goblins in the animated one from the 70's were horrifying.


It had great music, as well.

come on, admit it. everyone in this thread would love to rent a movie camera, bring all their friends together, mock up some dumb costumes and make a fan movie just like this. it make have terrible acting and nonexistent special effects, but this movie has a lot of heart.
