We are reviewing and commenting on a National Geographic special which is called “Beyond the Movie, The Lord of the Rings.
You may be steeped in the lore of this epic novel by JRR Tolkien or not. It matters not because today we bring to light some analogies and similarities through the ages, along with some lessons to be learned from history.
It was brought to the screen by Peter Jackson in a 6+ hour trilogy. Today I am going to be reviewing and exploring some real world parallels that this 57 minute National Geographic documentary.
I should start with Peter Jackson who produced the movie trilogy. You’re probably wondering what this has to do with “Thinking Outside of the Box”, well, in our world at T double Oh! TB we know that if you hold the vision like Peter Jackson did, and hold the intent it will manifest. This is a stellar example of the adage “Thought becomes Form”!
This week we have a lot of people to thank on our show credits today. As I said in the intro I am reviewing a National Geographic special called “Beyond the Movie– Lord of the Rings”:
It was Narrated by Phill Crowley with Peter McHugh and Oliver Muirhead. We never heard Peter Jackson’s voice but he deserves a huge shout out for following his passion and putting it into making an epic novel into an epic movie,
Among others you heard the voice of Ian McKellen as Gandolf, and discussing Benjamin Franklin was Prof. Michael Zuckerman of the University of Pennsylvania. You also heard Prof. Michael Droat who is a Tolkien an expert.
