Here’s a Small Detail That Is Often Overlooked in ‘The Lord of the Rings’

Dogs. Yes, I said it. Dogs.

Middle-Earth is full of fantastic creatures, frightening monsters, ethereal beings, and awe-inducing worlds, so it’s easy to forget that the fictional world crafted by J.R.R Tolkien is so detailed that even man’s best friend gets a moment to shine in the film.

Last night while watching The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring I was watching a scene I have seen literally hundreds of times (the Nazgul rider approaching the Hobbit working outside of his home on a peaceful evening) when I distinctly noticed the dog that was highlighted in the scene.

I was kind of blown away. Whoa, The Lord of the Rings has everything. Even dogs. It was such a striking observation that I felt obliged to share it with you today. Lol.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have an incredible day.

My Review of ‘Alpha’

For months I continued to see the incredible trailer for Alpha in the movie theaters and it intrigued me but I didn’t go see it because I figured the movie wasn’t worth the $10 movie ticket. Sure enough, it wasn’t.

Yesterday, my family and I watched the film and I was far from impressed. The story was very basic and predictable. The cinematography was overly beautiful, meaning the film was trying too hard to be epic. The music was too simple. And the movie didn’t land the emotional moments even though it was desperately trying to make people cry.

The best part about Alpha is the relationship between the main protagonist, Keda, and his new best friend, the wolf he named Alpha. As someone who loves man’s best friend, this was a heartwarming element to the film. Other than that, the movie was so boring it literally put me to sleep.

I’m giving this movie 81 out of 100 and 2.5 out of 5 stars. It’s not a terrible movie but unfortunately, I was very underwhelmed.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.
