Entry: Lord of the Rings Friday, December 26, 2003



   Everyone knows of the billion dollar movie series, the Lord of the Rings. Well, I saw the conclusion, The Return of the King, today. Only three and a half hours long, but it sure packs a punch!
 
   Frodo Baggins is a character that is desperately trying to get an 'evil' ring to a fiery mountain and destroy it. He has to take it to the mountain because that is the only place that can destroy it. The trouble is, the more Frodo is with the 'evil' ring, the more Frodo succumbs to the ring. If Frodo doesn't destroy the ring, the world will be taken over by the person who made the ring, whose life force is tied to it.

   Their was a scene that really interested me. Frodo is in the fiery mountain, but he can't seem to let go of the ring ( by this time, he is almost corrupt because of the ring ). Is this a good picture of sin or what? There you are with a choice, you can either choose the right ( destroy the ring instantly ) or you can think about it, allowing the Devil to counsel you. I promise you, the Devil makes very good arguments. If you hesitate, you become more 'corrupt', making it harder to choose the right.

I saw Return of the king! It was such a beautiful movie! Im a huge fan of LOTR as well.... Frodo mustve had a powerful sense of control over himself.. I know that if it was me... I probably wouldnt have been as strong...
