These days, the world feels more like Mordor than the Shire. Thankfully, a few hobbits are still around to bring us some hope.
Monday night, Dominic Monaghan posted a few photos on his Instagram. You may know Monaghan as Charlie from Lost, but he was also Merry in Lord of the Rings. He was hanging out with Billy Boyd (Pippen), Elijah Wood (Frodo), Orlando Bloom (Legolas), and current Oscar nominee Viggo Mortensen (Aragorn), and decided to document it.
That’s right, it was an impromptu reunion of more than half of the Fellowship of the Ring and the timing couldn’t be better.
Last month marked the 15th anniversary of that first film in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy.
15th? My God, I’m fukin old! Here are the pics:
Fifteen years later, moments like this are a blueprint for why the Lord of the Rings movies are so incredible. All the technical stuff? Yes. The script and direction? Of course. Tolkien’s story? Undoubtedly.
The LOTR trilogy was so truly amazing. I’m still confused at how The Hobbit trilogy was so truly horrible.
Regardless, we need these heroes back!!!
