FAN FILM FRIDAY: Ranger

Republibot 4.0's picture

Here is a nicely done film of the story of Beren and Luthien, from J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Silmarillion."  The tale is nicely adapted and thought-provoking. The acting, costumes, and cinematography are all pretty good, almost professional quality.  Most of the special effects are well made, especially the cloak of invisibility, but the dragon looks like an overgrown wind-up toy.  I would also have preferred a sword with a little more heft to its blade.

FAN FILM REVIEW: "The Hunt for Gollum" (2009)

Republibot 3.0's picture

This is not science fiction, but since so many SF series - most notably Babylon 5 - have drawn from the Middle Earth Stories, and since we expressed interest in it recently on the site ( http://www.republibot.com/content/things-interest-us-even-though-theyre-... ) It seems only fitting and fair that I review this fan film.
