The Next Best Picture Podcast – “The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King”

For our latest throwback review, we reminisce and celebrate the 20th-anniversary of the third and final part in Academy Award-winner Peter Jackson’s groundbreaking fantasy trilogy, “The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King,” starring Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Liv Tyler, Viggo Mortensen, Sean Astin, Cate Blanchett, John Rhys-Davies, Bernard Hill, Billy Boyd Dominic Monaghan, Orlando Bloom, Hugo Weaving, Miranda Otto, David Wenham, Karl Urban, John Noble, Andy Serkis, Ian Holm & Sean Bean. With expectations sky-high following the success of “The Fellowship of the Ring” and “The Two Towers,” Jackson and his team broke box-office records, garnered universal acclaim, and tied with “Ben Our” and “Titanic” with the most Academy Awards ever bestowed upon a single film, sweeping all eleven categories it was nominated for. Join us for our final journey back to Middle Earth as I, Alyssa Christian, and guests JD Duran (from InSession Film) and Aaron White (from Feelin’ Film) discuss the epic conclusion to the story, the performances, battle scenes, visual effects, and whether or not the multiple “endings” were warranted for such a sprawling story. We also discuss its historic awards season run and more in our SPOILER-FILLED review! Thank you for all your support, and enjoy!
