Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

June 12, 2021


In the second part of the Tolkien trilogy, Frodo Baggins and the other members of the Fellowship continue on their sacred quest to destroy the One Ring – but on separate paths.   Frodo and Sam continue their journey towards Mordor to destroy the One Ring, meeting and joined by Gollum, the ring’s former owner. Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli come to the war-torn nation of Rohan and are reunited with the resurrected Gandalf, before fighting against the legions of the treacherous wizard Saruman at the Battle of Helm’s Deep. Merry and Pippin escape capture, meet Treebeard the Ent, and help to plan an attack on Isengard, fortress of Saruman.

Craig, Alan and guest Jake Dietz from Movies That Make Us (@MoviesMakeUs on twitter) discuss the difference between Orcs, Goblins and Uruk-Hai,  the selfishness of Ents, the two versions of Gandalf and the movie “Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers” on this week’s Matinee Heroes!
