Investigating Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

English essay

The filmmakers of the lord of the rings use presentational devices to
give an idea what the characters, themes and the action to the
audience.

In order to understand the interpretation of the good vs. evil is
given in the film the fellowship of the ring, we will be analyzing and
also reviewing on the use of the films language we will be focusing on
our own opinions. We will be focusing on the scenes of the prologue
and the shire scene Bilbo’s party.

We will intend to investigate the filmmaker’s use of presentational
devices to create more impact to the audience. To enhance the
engagement the subject and to create the belief of the good of the
shire to the evil of the war. These are all found in middle earth. We
will defiantly look at how evil and good is presented

The fellowship of the ring is an excellent example of genre of
fantasy. It holds a significant place in the history of the films
because of all of its hard work and detail in presentation there is
also a lot of creditability, hard work and years of making just one
film. The director Peter Jackson before finishing the film he had to
make sure that everything was perfectly right every detail of Ork or
Hobbit had to be spot on to the last hair on each character.

Jackson also took years and years of preparation just to make
Hobbiton. Mr. Jackson has won plenty of Oscars and golden globe awards
but the won he cherishes most is best picture and best director. This
is because of the time and effort he has put in.

A specter of evil is looming over Middle Earth as the Dark Lord,
Sauron, seeks to consolidate his already immense power, by reclaiming
the One Ring that he has lost. Most of his power is held in this ring.
With this power, he can enslave Middle Earth and unleash an incredible
evil with little opposition. In the story of The Hobbit, a hobbit
called Bilbo Baggins has stolen the ring from a hideous creature
called Gollum. Somehow, this ring ends up with Frodo Baggins, Bilbo's
nephew and all of a sudden, Frodo is at the center of this epic tale
involving the ring that he knows very little about. The wizard,
Gandalf, warns Frodo that he should leave the shire (as Bilbo has
given him the ring) and keep the ring out of Sauron's hands. They meet
a fellow hobbits merry and pippin who helps them get out of trouble
when they are faced with the Nine Black Riders. Later, they meet a
night strider called Aragorn and they continue safely to the country
of the elves. Frodo recuperates from a wound and he is healed by
Elrond. At the Council of Elrond it is decided that the ring must be
destroyed at the Cracks of Doom. This is many miles away, deep inside
the evil lands of Mordor. The Fellowship of the ring is established,
including nine...
