February 2019 in Review

St. Louis

The first highlight of February was St. Louis. My mom and I went to see my grandma. St. Louis means a lot to me. Part of St. Louis included seeing Fiddler on the Roof at the gorgeous Fox Theatre. I only saw the movie of Fiddler on the Roof, but NEVER the stage show. St. Louis only was long weekend- a lot of the trip was spent inside. Never thought Fiddler on the Roof would start my musical year.

Lord of the Rings Films

Yes, this sounds like a crazy highlight. I fell in love with the series a while back. I wanted to watch the films, but the thing that held me back was the length of the films. This month I finally saw the trilogy- I am so glad I watched all three films. I am glad I did- I now want to own the trilogy films.

Miss Saigon

I did think Miss Saigon would start my musical year- instead it was Fiddler on the Roof. I discovered Miss Saigon through Les Mis- after all the music was written by the same people who brought you Les Mis. The musical made me feel love, joy, uncomfortable, fear, and heartbroken. I ended up forming a strong emotional connection to Kim and Chris- they are now a new musical theatre couple that I fell in love with. Now, there are songs that I keep on listening to. It is a good musical- if it wasn’t for Les Mis, I never would have seen Miss Saigon. I have come a long way since Les Mis.

The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King- Movie Review

Here we are at the end of the trilogy. It can be hard to know where the film begins. You might think it would be like Two Towers where it continues where Fellowship ended. However, Return of the King started as a flashback as to how Gollum got the ring and how he became the creature that he is- that might be a bit confusing to first time viewers.

While the evil might of the Dark Lord Sauron swarms out to conquer all Middle Earth, Frodo and Sam struggle deep into Mordor, seat of Sauron’s power. To defeat the Dark Lord, the One Ring, ruler of all the accursed Rings of Power, must be destroyed in the fires of Mount Doom. But the way is impossibly hard, and Frodo is weakening. Weighed down by the compulsion of the Ring, he begins finally to despair.

Major or Minor Spoilers:

As with the other films, Middle Earth comes to life. That is one of the best things about this series. They know how to make this fantasy world come to life. You really feel like you are in Middle Earth. You are always introduced to someplace different in each film. In this one, Frodo and Sam finally enter Mordor, and the biggest battle finally happens.

The “hidden passage” to Mordor is actually a spider’s lair- I was worried and scared for Frodo- despite knowing what is going to happen. I knew it wasn’t right to trust Gollum, but at the same time, Frodo and Sam never would have made it into Mordor without him. Most of the time in this film was spent outside of Frodo’s plot- it spent most of it’s time preparing and being at battle. Boy, the good guys were outnumbered- all of the films, I did not like Middle Earth attacked like that, but they never lost hope. Sam continued to be loyal to Frodo in his quest to destroy the ring, such as carrying him when he was too weak to continue up the mountain.

Just like with all Lord of the Rings films, the music helped a lot. It set up all the scenes. It told you when danger was coming- I loved how it set that up. It did give you a sense of worry.

This was the longest Lord of the Rings film, but was worth it. It was the darkest film, which was the strongest during the battle. You could easily see at Mordor that the Ring was becoming even harder on Frodo and making him weaker. He wouldn’t have made it that far without Sam. I was satisfied with the ending- even though Frodo had to leave Middle Earth. His quest was a huge burden on him and left him scarred for life- he still hadn’t fully healed from what happened to him during to the Quest- those are reasons why he had to leave.
