Part 2 of Fellowship: kzclip.org/video/TxIpmtEjY2E/бейне.html
Not necessarily best, but first I saw: Agent Elrond Smith, "Mister Baggins" ...
My favorite character is between legolas (love his and gimlis relationship throughout the series), Gandalf or Sam. It's hard for me to pick!
Damn that interlacing on your video is horrible dude. ;(
Now that you've watched Harry Potter i can say this one, unfortunately I cant provide the graphics.
Professor Mcgonagall: Mr. Potter you're late for class!
Harry: a wizard is never late, Professor...
Ron: oh god...
Harry: -nor is he early...
Hermione: dont do it...
Harry: he arrives PRECISELY when he means to!
Professor M: ...
Gandalf: THAT'S MY BOI~!
Aragorn: This is a good sword .. 🗡 ( when you are a kid and you find a stick)
9:41 That scene made me sure that Bilbo Baggins is actually the strongest character in the story. He's the only person in all of the history of the Ring up to that point who gave it up willingly.
@Glenn Janot We do. He didn't have to hold it out to be received. Anyone lesser wouldn't have held it out.
'No, not everything, Mr. Frodo. And it hasn't failed, not yet. I took it, Mr. Frodo, begging your pardon. And I've kept it safe. It's round my neck now, and a terrible burden it is, too.' Sam fumbled for the Ring and its chain. 'But I suppose you must take it back.' Now it had come to it, Sam felt reluctant to give up the Ring and burden his master with it again.
‘You’ve got it?’ gasped Frodo. ‘You’ve got it here? Sam, you’re a marvel!’ Then quickly and strangely his tone changed. ‘Give it to me!’ he cried, standing up, holding out a trembling hand. ‘Give it me at once! You can’t have it!’ ‘All right, Mr. Frodo,’ said Sam, rather startled. ‘Here it is!’ Slowly he drew the Ring out and passed the chain over his head. ‘But you’re in the land of Mordor now, sir; and when you get out, you’ll see the Fiery Mountain and all. You’ll find the Ring very dangerous now, and very hard to bear. If it’s too hard a job, I could share it with you, maybe?’ ‘No, no!’ cried Frodo, snatching the Ring and chain from Sam’s hands.
He's considered a Ring-bearer and gets to go into the West at the end of his life.
@Subuwu Did he give it up though? He held the chain out in front of him but he became mesmerized by it until Frodo snapped the chain out of his hand.
Sowhile he might have given it up,we really don't know
*Actually Sam gave it up too. He held it long enough to be considered a ringbearer, which allowed him to journey into the west after the books.*
Sam did it too
Bilbo had it for many years and didn't "turn to the dark side."
Just a fun fact, Tolkien and CS Lewis (author of Narnia) were roommates at one point. They literally shaped the way fantasy fiction is made, we really owe them so sooooooo much ❤️
They Lectured at the same university, drank at the same pub, where they read each other’s work out loud in their writer’s club (CS Lewis was inspired by Tolkien’s writing to some extent, and Tolkien was a bit offended). Both write very differently, and both are worth the read.
No one said it, so I'm obliged to;
*Gasp* They were roommates?
@Emryl.7018AD Depends on culture. I think the German equivalent of I love you I only say to 2 people. My best friend and my boyfriend. I like saving these things for my most cherished people outside the family. For my family' there's a separate word to express love and affection. Let people interpret whatever they want. You don't have to cry about it or complain. It's really none of your business. Homosexuality has only recently become more represented in media. Of course people yearn for its representation in beloved childhood media and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. They're free to do so and should do so as feeling represented is a very positive emotion if you never are represented. The average cishet white crowd doesn't understand that as they never had an issue with representation. They are in every single piece of media to this day.
@D M like... I call my friends beautiful and all of us in our close knit group of friends have said 'I love you' to each other because we believe that it's important to express it if you cherish someone. It doesn't mean that any of us have any romantic feelings for one another.
I get that people can interpret things how they want, but it's exasperating when people immediately think 'ooooh he's in love with him' when
expressing your love for the people you cherish and complimenting them on their beauty is a normal thing to do platonically. Friendship comes in different depths and is expressed in different ways no matter what that depth is.
The impact of professor Tolkien's book on our culture and media cannot be overstated. That one person had such an immense influence is mind bending. Cheers, lads! Great reaction! Hope y'all enjoy the rest of this ride!
@Red SnOrLaX books are kinda boring though , I get it "world building" but it's like a history book not a very thrilling book
Didn't do shit in Asia though
@Daniel Midkiff Agree 100% it goes to show the strength of the story, and how much love people have for it that when it came time to make the definitive film version no expense was spared, new methods and techniques were developed, funding by studios for three whole movies filmed all at the same time with years of pre production which was and still is almost unheard of in Hollywood or any other movie making industry. It was a labour of love that is really felt, and the fans who also loved the story instantly connected and appreciated, not to mention that in general passionate people make good art about the things they’re passionate about.
It's amazing that one of his biggest reasons for writing the LotR was exploring words that didn't have an explanation. He was a linguist, and things like "Ent" were words that didn't have an explanation. They were just...a thing. I think Tolkien would be very happy to see that his linguistics exercise changed the way we speak.
How are you four the perfect mix of people to watch this!?
The fan, the one excited for the ride, the skeptic, and the one who knows ever meme and has a lot of second hand knowledge and is just excited to see it all come together 😂😂😂
we have the fellowship of the lotr reactions
🤣 actually never thought of it that way. Great eye on that! 🤘
Something to keep in mind about the ring, that goes over a lot of reactor's heads, is that it's essentially cursed. Like Gandalf said, "I would use this ring for the desire to do good, but through me it would wield a power too great and terrible to imagine." It brings out the worst in people by twisting their thoughts and desires - men are easily susceptible to this because they desire power. So, when you see Boromir or anyone else acting up around the ring, it's usually because the ring is "poisoning their minds"
That's why Frodo was chosen to be the ring bearer. Hobbits are a peaceful people with no real desires beyond good food, drink, and company. They're naturally resistant to the ring, but not immune.
Not even cursed, it is what a D&D nerd would call an Intelligent Artifact. It got a will of it's own, it is a ring of power, Dominion and superior control of others. And it can twist even the most noble of characteristics into extremes that are no longer Good, just or noble. And if you claim it as yours (not the same as essentially having it and carrying/using it) then it's power over the wielder is magnified way beyond what merely carrying it does. And it also allows the full use of it's power (which the movies sadly does not show as described in the books, but that is oke to me).
It always makes me sad that Gandalf likely had a suspicion that Frodo would end up being the ring bearer. Just the way he seems disappointed every time it's confirmed that Frodo is going to have to be the one to do it.
The business with the dragon wasn't without danger, but every step of the way, Gandalf knows that he's doomed Frodo to be permanently changed in a lot negative ways.
Gandalf isn't a man though.
@Sailië Alquadacil When I said "chosen" I simply meant no one argued against him being the ring-bearer, but well said.
Frodo wasn't chosen, he essentially did it because someone had to. However, he was certainly the best person available for the task, since he never desired power. He just wanted to go back home. The moral of the story is that you don't have to be powerful, skilled or wise to make a great impact on the world.
They seem like they're having fun - it's always cool to see people who are new to the genre enjoying this sort of stuff for the first time.
We definitely got hooked! More to come! 🤘
The greatest film of all time in my opinion. Love all 3 LOTR movies but this one in particular is above all else
Agreed but I really love the Two Towers. The final battle was epic!
Agreed but I really love the Two Towers. The final battle was epic!
I can't really judge which is better cuz they are essentially a collective, long movie.
@Niravathu the battles of the second and third movies are 🤯
I cannot honestly say any of these movies are better than the others. They all bring something unique, Fellowship gave us the Balrog and the greatest last words of any character ever, Towers gave us the Battle for Helm's Deep, and Return gave us the two finest speeches you will ever hear.
As someone that wasn't into fantasy or had read the books, I had to almost be dragged to the cinema for this when i was 11. Turned out to be the best cinema experience of my life & waiting a year between each film was just crazy. Still, without a doubt, the best films ever made & the biggest inspiration that got me into film production.
Same here. My boyfriend at the time dragged me to go see this after I had worked a 12 hour shift three days in a row. It was a 10pm showing. I told him I was gonna sleep. 3 minutes in, I was ENTHRALLED!
I was like, 11 as well at the time of the movie's release and I was taken to see the movie in the cinema as well, along with the second AND the third. I loved every single experience of it.
I waited almost 30 year's for the Jurassic Park series to end, and almost 36 year's for top gun 2
I was 22 and it was the best cinematic experience of my life, too. Totally blew me away and kept me on the edge of my seat, especially the balrog! (I was a big fan of the original Star Wars trilogy and the prequels were coming out around the same time and they couldn't hold a candle to LOTR.) I hated waiting a whole year for the next one!
I love Mason Quinn's facial expressions throughout this whole reaction video, it's like he's just so happy that you guys are watching this movie for the first time . It's awesome, it's hilarious 🤣🤣🤣🤦🏻♂️
One does not simply walk into Mordor… best line ever..will still be famous 50 years from now
The viewing experience is so much better when you have someone who knows the LORE/the movies, watching it with you.
Quite simply the 3 greatest films ever in my opinion! 20 years on and I still get goosebumps every time I watch and the score is just exquisite!!!
The score of this is great! And we can see why you still get the goosebumps. It was epic!
Sean Bean was in a series of films starting with Sharpe's Rifles, where he was wholly unkillable.
I think the lives of every character he played after were given to keep Sharpe alive.
When he cuts his finger on the sword, he says: stiill sharp". A little add on by Peter Jackson.
@Badd Medicine He was the hero and titular character in the Sharpe series. It's worth a watch if you can find it.
Sean Bean should have a contract that says he has to be the villain in every role.
Fun fact the Lord of the Rings movies have the most Oscar awards in a movie franchise
ROTK also has the most academy awards of any film ever in history.
@Badd Medicine Its one of 3 movies with the most awards in Oscar's history - LOTR : Return of the king got 11 awards, Ben Hur 11 awards, and Titanic 13 awards.
LOTR : FOTR got 13 nominations and only 6 awards.
I dont remember how many got TTT but it was the least awarded of the trilogy.
But beside oscars the trilogy is one of the most awarded movie ever with over 250 awards around the world for ROTK only.
Didn't know that. Interesting.
Honestly, watching these bros watch lotr is amazing hahaha their reactions are so different than what I’m used to and it’s so fun. I love it
Hey Meg! Thank you! And thanks for watching. We appreciate it! 😁🤙
I just love watching people experience the world Tolkien created (and PJ did an amazing adaptation in the films)
I had a good laugh when Merry and Pippin run into Sam and Frodo in the corn field and y’all just said “oh these two idiots” 😂😂😂 perfect
🤣🤣🤣🤣 I take back the idiots comment
Im so glad that the majority of the crew haven’t seen this brilliant series yet! I love all of the reactions and Oak is priceless especially with the memes and even getting offended with Isildurs sword 😂💯👌🏼 keep it coming boys cant wait for the rest!
@Badd Medicine Keep up the good content! You guys are killing it 🤟🏼
Hell yeah! We should've had our reactions when we found out Mason Quinn was a huge fan with LOTRs. He also did a little d&d. Part 2 will be out soon. 🤘 Thank you for watching.
“It cannot be seen, cannot be felt.
Cannot be heard, cannot be smelt.
It lies behind stars and under hills,
and empty holes it fills.
It comes first and follows after.
Ends life, kills laughter.”
The answer is dark; the dark, dark
(Gollum's Riddle is a song whose score was written by Maury Laws for the 1977 film adaptation of the The Hobbit. It follows the riddle Gollum proposes to Bilbo until the ending line)
Love the Oaks reactions to the meme moments. He doesn't laugh as much in the reactions so it's cool seeing him crack up this much.
The greatest story ever told imo! You guys are in for an awesome journey
We are all in! 🤘🤘🤘
As someone reading through the books, this is one of the great adaptation movies. The superfluous fat is trimmed, tension increased, narrative focused, all while still presenting a damn fine fantasy story.
One of my favorite lore pieces from the books is knowing that the orcs were once elves who have just been corrupted by the shadow. This is why Frodo thought the inscription on the ring was elvish, and this is also why orcs live forever except in battle. Tolkien always goes ham on that Christian allegory.
Agh! I want part 2 already! This was so much fun to see y’all’s reaction! I got to engrossed and forgot you weren’t going to be able to put the whole first movie
Coming soon. Still battling the fun copyrights. 🙄
I love how Dave and Oak were so skeptical (as was I) and 3 minutes in, they were hooked. And Oak's "That's love!" had me in tears!😂❤️
The love for the memes becoming reality was so funny! Great to see new folks watch this for the first time.
😁😁👍👍 thank you and thanks for watching. We appreciate it 🤘
I Love these movies, I never seem to tire of seeing them.
Its also great that your watching the extended cut too. Like you guys, my brother had never watched these movies, then when he finally saw the extended version, he loved them. And later complained that the versions that are shown on TV, the theatrical versions, weren't nearly as good as the extended versions.
As for the memes, I got sent one by my teen daughter about 10 yrs ago, after I'd shouted a couple of times that dinner was ready. She was gaming at the time with friends. And it was something like: ONE DOES NOT SIMPLY JUST SWICH OFF AN ONLINE GAME WHEN CALLED FOR DINNER! "
Man I grew up on the trilogy. Watched these endlessly with my cousins as a kid.
Seeing your commentary was fun. Like seeing folks stumble into a hobby that I love lol. Pretty good commentary honestly
Thank you and thanks for watching. We appreciate it 🤘
I love all the guys reactions but Appleton Oak’s journey was my favourite, his sheer and enthusiasm and joy for the memes and the moments you see the story truly touch him. Few thing make Lord of the Rings fans as purely happy as seeing someone else enjoy what they enjoy
Came for Pirates of the Caribbean, stayed for Harry Potter and now LOTR. You guys really are my new comfort channel - thank you.
No no.... Thank you! We appreciate it!🤙
one of my favorite thing about the extended editions are the making ofs. I watched them so many times. It was genius back then
Never seen you guys before, but love this! Such a treat three of you hadnt watched before, and the one who had didnt overload them with info, and love the format and reaction :)
Glad you found us🤘Thank you! And thanks for watching🤙
LoL, I loved this reaction. Totally a bunch of dads not commenting on how pretty Arwen is and spelling out the cuss words instead of saying them LoL
I was laughing right along with you guys :D
😂😂😂😂😂 thank you!
Hellz ya glad you guys are doing these films and the extended cut's at that! these are gunna be great reactions🤟🤟🍻
So I did my senior project on these movies and the amount of work, dedication, and love that went into these is insane. The filming techniques were just brilliant, the casting was fantastic, the costumes and props (including all the scale models) are just breathtaking. And the directing renders me speechless. My dad introduced me to these movies when I was a kid, I'm now 20 and obsessed with everything to do with the books and the movies. The intricacies of the world building, I've never seen anything like it. Their near to my heart and it always makes me unbelievably happy to see ppl experience it for the first time.
Probably third time watching THIS reaction.
Can we all please appreciate Frodo's raw effectiveness as a Wing Man?
My dad and I watched this movie in the theatre and I remember when she says “we must get him to my father” he out loud said “yes take him to Steven Tyler.”
Now i always laugh at that bit. 😂
This is going to be my 3rd run-through of watching you guys! I've just watched you react to ROP first 2 episodes and it's too painful to carry on lol. (Although it was nice seeing 2 of you manly guys together as well too;) I did actually enjoy watching ROP myself especially more in the beginning because I like Galadriel's character and the actress who plays her. I've already re-watched your reaction to HP 3 times because I love the honest growth some of you take, and how you take these films seriously and try to give thoughtful comments, where many reactors pay lip service I feel.
These movies, and these books, are genuinely my favorite part of the experiencing these 80 or so years on this planet, I really cannot overstate how much this story means to me, and how much it has impacted my life and who I've become as a person.
Seeing this in theaters when it came out was incredible. I was 9 and my mind was blown.
**Seeing Christopher Lee on top of Isengard was epic. I joke he was auditioning for the metal bands would go to sing in (bands like Rhapsody , power metal band , and later his own album in his 80s)
So happy you are reacting to this series.
There are huge lists of trivia and comparisons between the films and the books.
Can’t wait to see more from you guys.
From the UK.
Thank you! And I can only imagine how fun the books are. 🤘
So, I always see people act kind of incredulous when the ring falls onto Frodo's finger. Remember, the ring has a mind of its own and it wants to be found. If you watch closely, the ring hits Frodo's finger and then corrects itself to slip on. The ring knew the wraiths were hunting them so it purposefully slipped onto Frodo's finger to alert them as to its location.
Plus it can shrink and expand to some degree
Always love seeing new folks watching these fantastic movies.
It's a glorious new world. Better late than never 🤙
I love how they more or less hired Sean Bean for the Martian just so he could sit on the Council of Elrond at NASA. Also he survived to the credits in that movie so a rare treat.
The scene with "looks fairer and feels fouler" lines between Frodo and Merry is also interesting for me becouse its one of those early scenes in the movie when we can see the differences between the main hobbits. At the inn (of the prancing pony) Sam's general behaviour was showed - that he usualy looks about for possible threats for Frodo "that man in the corner" and acts accordingly "I'll have you Longshanks" (btw Longshanks was one of other names Strider was called by the people of Bree). Merry is from an old and rich family of practical people who plans for long time as they are sort of governonrs of big province of the Shire (Buckland - thats why Merry knew about "Buckleberry Ferry" it was near his home :) Its very good to remember that from those 4 only Sam is a gardener for hire the other boys are from higher class - Pippin's dad is actualy Than of the Shire, which is smt like king's governor for the Shire obligated to protect all land in a time of crisis. Frodo is from old and respected clan about which he speaks with Gandalf at the start of the movie. Only Bilbo was not respected in Baggins family becouse he got on adventures in far a way lands. :) And Merry is the most strategic mind of all 4 hobbits. Pippin is showed in the movie as the unpredictable joker becouse he was the youngest in the book (5 years before the age of adulthood as hobbits count it at 33 - btw Frodo is 33 at the first scene and Bilbo's b-day party was also Frodo's b-day party in the book), Sam is humble servant who simply idolised Frodo even before the Quest, and Frodo is more introspective and intuitive. So Merry thinks more far-sighted than Sam but is also more down to earth than Frodo - Merry evaluates only what he sees (Aragorn, or other persons) while Frodo looks deeper into things and persons (as he did in the book scenes in his meetings with other charachters). And IMO in the movie he is showed as the one of the hobbits with the most intuitive thinking. Frodo was scholar and poet in the book. Thats why the line of "feels fouler and looks fairer" was his line from the book, although in the book he spoke it to Strider not Merry. :)
@Badd Medicine 33 for hobbits is like 18 - 21 for us becouse its their age of adulthood, so 100 for hobbits is like 70 for us and the two eldest of all hobbits lived to 130, so we can assume 130 was like 100 for us. So 111 year old Bilbo should have looked like 80+ human but he looked like human at the age of a bit over 60 I guess and it was becouse of the influence of the Ring. Frodo was 33 at the start of the book. But in the book between their b-day party and the start of the journey had passed 17 years so Frodo is 50 at the start of the Quest. We can also insist that in the movie Frodo is 50 but this should be a bit better justified for the sake of the movie :) So I assume that at 50 a hobbit should not looked older than 30 - 35 year old human. But Frodo could have looked younger becouse he was given the Ring at his 18 b-day party and from this point he stops aging. But I prefer to assume that movie-Frodo at the b-day party and at the start of the journey is not much older (maybe half a year or a year) becouse in the movie actualy nothing points to us that all 17 years have passed. I think we can assume for the sake of the movie :) that in the movie Frodo still is at this younger age and the time between b-day party and the Quest was not more than IMO half a year. And from what I can assume that it was half a year? From the lines of the innkeeper Barliman who told Frodo that Gandalf was not seen in Bree for half a year. Bree is a town just beside the borders of the Shire. When Gandalf left Frodo and Sam in this wood [ in the movie - in the book they never started the journey with Gandalf - Frodo sets out from home in the company of Sam and Pippin, and they met Merry at the border of the Shire becouse that was Frodo's plan all along. ] and rode south he must have been riding past Bree becouse he left a letter for Frodo in the care of innkeeper (in the book). And riding from Shire to Gondor on fast horse should not be taken more than 2 months so I assume that movie-Gandalf was absent from Bree for half a year becouse he was inprisoned by Saruman. Though in the book there is much more traveling and fighting for Gandalf between his last meeting with Frodo and his inprisonment at Saruman's tower - for example he fights with Nazguls at Amon Sul - the hill where later Frodo was wounded by Nazguls. So we can chose our prefered interpretation of the movie timeline - either Frodo is 50 (35 on appearance) but he stopped aging at 33 (20) so he looks much younger than he should OR in the movie there is no 17 years between the start of the book (b-day party scene) and the start of the quest - and so Frodo still is looking as he should just few months after his 18 b-day party :)
Frodo is 33? I guess I shouldn't be shocked considering they age very slowly.
I've seen several reactions to the trilogy and I thoroughly enjoyed watching yours.
Now I have to wait with modified impatience for the follow-up vids! subscribing to make sure I don't miss them.
Hell yeah! Thank you! Glad you found us! Part 2 will be up in a few days. 🤘
I just found your channel today and watched the Harry Potter reactions without realizing you already did Lord of the Rings! this is my favorite movie trilogy of all time! there was something truly magical about seeing these films in theaters over 20 years ago. Wonderful reactions! I highly recommend watching the Hobbit trilogy! they're not as good but it's fun to go back to middle earth again!
@Badd Medicine Glad I found you guys too! Awesome!! I cannot wait! Seriously, great genuine reactions from all of you! I totally respect and love the fact that some of you guys aren't really into fantasy genre stuff but were willing to give lord of the rings a try! Awesome stuff!! 😊
Thank you! Glad you found us. And yes, Hobbit movies will be coming after Potter 🤘
I love all of the reactions, but especially The Oak getting excited about all of the meme origins XD
My favorite reaction to this movie by far, looking forward to the rest. I remember seeing this in the theater and knowing nothing about it but was dragged her by my girlfriend and her dad, After that, caught each sequel day of opening. Such a great trilogy
Hell yeah! High praise and we'll take it! 😁🤙 Thank you! More to come!
Oh man, what I would give to able to see this trilogy for the first time with fresh eyes once again! What an experience!
This is like the most muscular reaction crew I have ever seen! 🤣
🤣🤣🤣🤣 believe it or not, we aren't total meat heads
I just found your channel, and these are some of my favorite movies. Oak needing a moment after Sean Bean's famous meme was absolutely hilarious 😂
Get ready for this amazing adventure through Middle-Earth guys 💚 Awesome that it's the extended editions Mason!
We are ready and invested!
That was hilarious.
Love the group reaction. Almost all of these are indivual or twos. Its WAY better to see a group reaction.
Sweet metal intro. You don't hear that intro often with reactions. Pretty unique and very cool. Like your style.
Memes for the win!!!!!!! Eager to see what you think of part 2.
Thank you! We appreciate it! Hope to drop part 2 tomorrow. We have been fighting blocks and copyrights. 🙄
Great reaction! 👍😊I love the Lord of the rings, best trilogy ever. I am happy that you watch the extended version. I hope you will continue with watching the extended editions for the next two movies. It is absolutely worth it! 🙂 But for now can't wait for the next part! I am so excited! Thank you! PS: favourite character: definately Sam 💕
Hello and thank you for watching! You can count on us delivering on all of them and the extended versions! And Sam was great!
"Gandalf can't be dead" LOL - Good sportsmanship to watch this film if you're not already a Tolkein fan.
13:18 "Hobbits don't crave the power like humans would." You understand the core traits of hobbits. :)
Thank you for not being lazy and watching the extended versions...for the sake of the extra 20 minutes. Once you start the journey you should stay on it and not react to a pile of other stuff before continuing. Always remember too...the ring is constantly trying to get Frodo to follow it's will. It's a major mental challenge for Frodo.
Hey Alan, we are doing all the extended versions. We are locked in on LOTR! 🤘
Aragorn sings in elvish in that scene in the camp (in sindarin I think - one of two elven languages of Tolkien). So thats how we can know - in the movie - that Frodo knows elvish language. The earlier scene with revealing of the script on the Ring gave us only the information that Frodo knows some elvish alphabeth but not the kind of it used in the script on the Ring. He recognized elvish script. In the book Frodo met elves even before he met Aragorn and spoke with them in their language and as this scene was cut from the movie we can see that Frodo knows a bit of elvish - enogh to understand about whom Aragorn sings (the elven woman) although he does not know her entire story. So he asked Aragorn "who was the woman you sing of?" In the book as Frodo was learning from Bilbo and from Gandalf he actualy could have known many of such elvish stories.
love love love the reactions to these iconic movies. My favorite of all time
Thank you! And thanks for watching 🤙 we appreciate it 🤘
Fun fact: I used to live on Mordor Lane and our doormat was the Eye of Sauron that said "One does not simply walk into Mordor." Solicitation was listened to politely or immediately turned away based on the reaction to the mat.
Hahaha that's awesome
Rewatching this tonight. You guys rock. One of my favorite channels!
Can't wait to see part 2. Carry on with the good stuff guys!
Thank you! Drops in a few hours. Hopefully we avoid copyright/block. We have been battling that the last few days.
I'm excited that y'all are watching these! Can't believe only one of y'all has watched them before. They're my favorite movies of all time. The OT Star Wars movies were my favorites since I was a little girl until LOTR.
Better late than never! 😂 Believe it or not, some of the guys haven't seen any of the Star wars movies 😬
I loved seeing new people discover this masterpiece. I would like it if the movie was minimised instead of the reactors because my attention is split to watching each corner, while I’ve seen the movie I know what happens. But you guys are really awesome thank you for the video!
Thank you and thanks for watching! We appreciate it. Two towers is next! 😁🤘
Loved the reaction! Can't wait for more!
Thank you, Jordan! More to come indeed!
I remember my uncle and cousin were obsessed with LOTR when the films came out. My cousin even had a poster of Legolas on her closet door for years lol. So I grew up seeing parts of the movies but I didn't sit down and watch them until over 10 years after they came out. I think it's a good thing though. I have more appreciation for fantasy movies as an adult than I did as a kid. Harry Potter is probably the only fantasy series I got into as a kid because it has realistic elements that were relatable.
Immediately subscribed. Cannot wait to see you guys watch the rest of the series!
Hell yeah! Thank you! Part 2 should be dropping in a few days. 🤘
I love seeing first time reactions to this type of content. Gonna have fun with these!!
Hell yeah! 🍻🤙
I love that Oak is hyped every time he sees a scene that inspired a meme he recognizes xD
Awsome reaction. Cant wait for the rest. you guys will love it!
Tuesday part 2 drops
In my opinion the best books and films ever made, there are none that can compare.
Great channel, bois! LotR is an absolute masterpiece of a trilogy.
Dude with the hat seems ot be picking up on a lot of the little stuff some people may miss. Good stuff.
Thank you and thanks for watching. We appreciate it 🤘
I only found this out via a friend who loves this franchise. He said that Frodo (Eljah Wood) and Gandalf (Sir Ian Mckellen) never filmed a scene together so that carriage ride with them two never happened they filmed it separately apparently
@Shanegames 07 Just watch some of the behind the scenes footage.
@Michael Adam Bond OK cool. That is what Google says. They never filmed a scene together.
@Shanegames 07 You searched it up? What are you talking about? They filmed their scenes together. They used forced perspective. It's really neat how they accomplished it. You and your friend should re-look up any of the information you just talked about.
They were never filmed together probably because of the size difference between Hobbits and Big people. Size doubles were used for each, which is why many shots of the two are shown from behind one or the other: Behind a very big man ("Tall Paul" he was dubbed) when showing a hobbit's face, and behind a small person when showing Gandalf (or another human-sized character) from the front.
Definitely thought they did more camera angles for some scenes. Very interesting
One of my favorite things is that at the beginning of the movie when Gandalf first goes into Bilbos house, you see him smack his head on the ceiling and go "OHH!" and its funny cuz it was a total accident, Ian Mckellen actually did that on accident and they kept it in!
I often watch you react, but now I have to subscribe; wouldn't want to miss a single reaction to any of these films (and hopefully the Hobbit trilogy too)
Great to hear, Lynn! Thank you for the sub! I'm pretty sure the plan is to get the hobbit movies too!
At 13:18, the guy with the baseball hat on (forgive me for not knowing your names yet. The "Oak" maybe?) said that the Hobbits are a safer bet to carry the ring since they don't crave power, and I'm so totally impressed that you got that so quickly. The ring does corrupt everyone around it and the ringbearer most of all, but Hobbits are more resistant to it because they are perfectly happy living a simple life and don't crave more. They fall to the power of the ring too, but much more slowly than others because of their innate nature.
You guessed right! And glad you found us! More LOTR to come🤘
@Badd Medicine OK, thank you! I like you guys and this is the first thing by you I've seen. Are you in the Midwest? I hear what sounds like Wisconsin accents but I could be wrong and I understand if you want to keep your location vague. I would too! I really hope you can get the rest of Fellowship posted soon, and I hope you love it!
That was the Oak. That ring was impressively powerful! Fun to see what it does to people.
6:40 I love how familiar he is with the memes and how many line he's just laughing at recognizing from memes
When Arwen defeats the Ringwraiths after crossing the river, the words she speaks translates into English “Waters of the Misty Mountains, hear the word of power, rush, waters of Bruinen (Loudwater), against the Ringwraiths!”
Love your reaction! Keep them coming.
MsDenise, you got it! Thank you and thanks for watching!
This is the first video I've seen of yours, these films are my favourites of all time and this reaction is great!! Sorry I don't know names yet but love the guy in the top right being like "ahh i have no expectations I'm only watching this because I have to now" and then 3 minutes in he's like already super into it 😂😂 and the dude getting excited about memes was great!
Hello! Thanks for watching. Yeah, we got totally sucked into the these movies and they were really great! We understand why it has the passionate fan base it has now.
Here it comes.... The most awesome trilogy ever created....
We finally got to it! And is great! 🤘🤘🤘
Wait, this was the first time you saw The Lord of the Rings?! The lord of the rings movies I still think is the greatest trilogy ever made! The movies are so well done!
I always enjoy watching reactions to these movies - particularly folks who've never seen the movies and moreso for those who haven't read the books. subscribed so I don't miss the next videos!
@Badd Medicine Great. By the way, I was re-watching the video and noticed how quickly the 3 of you who never watched these movies and expressed some indifference to it in the introduction seemed to get interested in the movie very quickly.
Tuesday it drops. We let it sit for a few days for copyright purposes. Too many times we have experienced days later it gets blocked. So we let it sit in hopes that everything is good. 🤘
@Badd Medicine No problem. Do you know yet when you will be releasing Part 2?
Awesome! Thank you and thanks for subbing. 🤘🤙
I went with my ex-wife to the midnight Premiere of 'The Two Towers' on our honeymoon. Alot of Fanatics were dressed up for it. Really fun.
me and my mum made it to the midnight premiere for each film - we lived in a tiny village and the nearest theater was like 2 hours drive away through the damned mountains, haha, we had to sleep in the car afterwards :p Sadly for me I'd already been obsessed with the books for years so my brain got in the way of the pleasure because of all the changes. on some level I wished I'd seen the films first, THEN read the books. But still a memorable experience and I marathon the extended versions every few years, though the books will always be closest to my heart ^_^
Sorry to hear the marriage didn't last, but at least your honeymoon was awesome :D
I am taking today & tonight to watch these Lord of the Rings reactions. Literally this is the first video of your channel I'm ever seeing. Just I have to comment this - I know it's 'Badd Medicine', but between the first word and the music... my mind immediately went 'Bad company I can't deny! Bad bad company till the day I die' (Five Finger Death Punch). I'm so glad that for your first time you guys went with the extended editions because that is the way it should be done!
Had to go back to rewatch this after watching your reaction vid to The Hobbit. Like going back for a swim in the fountain of nostalgia. ^o^
🤘🤘🤘🤘 it's was a good start to this trilogy
I LOVED this reaction!! You guys make the most simple things entertaining, I loved the meme moments the appleton oak had, the moments with Sean, Orlando and agent Smith. You guys are the best! Can't wait for the next reaction to come.
@Badd Medicine It's my pleasure!! Thank you for giving us amazing reactions and material to spend time watching!
Hey Alexiani! Good to see you back! It was great to finally see this movie considering everything from memes to all the jokes ever made in movies, etc. Thank you for the kind words and thanks for always supporting! 🤘
Cool! Love seeing people who aren't necessarily one of us Fantasy fans/nerds react to this for the 1st time!
A lot of people just think of this as the quintessential Fantasy that started it all (and it is- basically all of Dungeons and Dragons came from Tolkien stories).
HOWEVER, it's really more than that. It's actually a war epic, as Tolkien was a WWI vet and most of its messages about good vs evil, friendship, duty, are all directly because of his personal experiences as a WWI vet.
It really has a message anyone can benefit from and a hero story so classic anyone can enjoy.
(Just for the record, I saw all of these in the theater as a young adult while on dates 😋 But I'm nerdy and female. Maybe things work different from my POV 😆)
if frodo died from that stabing wound it would be kinda funny to imagine a tiny hobbit nazgul runing around on his tiny horse
@Badd Medicine yes :D And the real possibility was that if Elrond could not heal him by eliminating the toxic shard of the blade - as the shard was magicaly toxic (Morgul blade used by Nazguls) and striving to his heart, thats why after few weeks the wound was not healed as itself as it should be - they should have to kill Frodo themselves moments before he would be transformed into a wraith. Becouse if he died with the shard in him or if the shard touched his heart and he died from piercieng his heart then he would become a nazgul and becouse he got the Ring he would be unstoppable to run from them and give it back to Sauron as a nazgul should. It would not be Frodo but unemotional, souless wraith without free will and any other drive than giving up the Ring to Sauron. So before Frodo become the nazgul they should have killed him in Rivendell. That was also a real perspective at this point. But when Elrond tells about how he "is resilient to its evil" its about the Ring but in the book the other incredible thing was that Frodo was resilient also to the influence of the shard of Morgul blade in him and he consciously or unconsciously but limited its progress toward his heart and thats why he lived for 17 days with this magic shard in him. Which was very astonishing for elves, becouse they knew that there were few persons who lived for some time after such wound, and never healed.
A fel and fearsome dark pony!
Hahahah didn't even think of that
This is going to be an exciting journey!
Let's go! 🔥🔥🔥🔥
I watched the movie more than 10 times. I could easily fill in the blanks during the blurred out part haha
13:31 I’ve watched a good handful of LOTR reaction videos and it always surprised me that not many people comment on the actors, especially someone like Sean Astin, as Rudy…until now! Good on, you!
That gentleman in the bottom corner pointing out all the memes is so valid! I just went to an extended lotr marathon and that's all I could think of. Lotr memes are the best memes
The greatest movies ever made, based on the greatest story ever written.
Truth be told, I love Ian McKellen and Christopher Lee. Embarrassingly, I sometimes wish that they played in a movie together. Then I remember that they're in this.
best channel ever guys good job ! i love the commentary and your reactions is perfect !!.
you guys are so friggan funny xD. "Omg, its another meme, this movie is going to be full of memes!" had me lmfao
15:22 Always gets me. 😂
I love that this guy has essentially watched this movie through all the old memes of it lol
