'Movies Like The Lord of the Rings': Modern High-Medieval Fantasy

Modern movies in the vein of LOTR: set in imaginary worlds and defined by the epic scale of their storyline and characters. Be warned the path from here to LARPing may be deceptively short and comfortable.

'Movies like Stardust': Epic Fantasy Flicks

Experience the miracle of imagination on the big-screen with such multi-million dollar fantasy franchises as 'Chronicles of Narnia' and 'Harry Potter'. Will have you sprinting into train-station walls at full pelt!

Oscar Best Picture Nominees Noughties

From the decade that witnessed 'Lord of the Rings - Return of the King' scoop up all its 11 academy award nominations, enjoyed our comprehensive selection of all Oscar Best Picture Nominees 2000 - 2009.

Orlando Bloom with a Sword

Relatively self-explanatory. All movies featuring Orlando Bloom brandishing a sword, including 'LOTR', 'Kingdom of Heaven', and 'Troy'. And yes, to preempt all you ill-informed pedants out there, Legolas does use a sword in some battle-scenes, not just his bow.

Peter Jackson Movies

If you think 'LOTR' is all Peter Jackson's done, think again. Let this collection introduce you to 1993 horror-comedy cult classic 'Dead Alive', surrealist masterpiece 'Meet the Feebles', and the simply indescribable 'Bad Taste'. The only question you'll be asking after checking out the maestro's early work is, 'why the hell did they bet on THIS horse?'.

Viggo Mortensen Movies

People who though Mortensen's career had peaked with LOTR were in for a pleasant surprise when he came out with 'A History of Violence' in 2005 and 'Eastern Promises' two years later. Fun fact: Old Viggo is also an accomplished painter, musician, and poet!

Orlando Bloom Movies

Why is it so hard to see Orlando Bloom's subsequent characters as anything other than Legolas pretending to be a human? All we know is that the constant expectation that he'll pull a longbow out makes concentrating on the remainder of his filmography rather difficult.

Sean Astin Movies

The man with the kindest face in Hollywood. We literally can't imagine a better Samwise - our only question, has he ever done a road-trip with Elijah Wood to a famous volcano? We can only hope.

Sir Ian McKellen Movies

YOU SHALL NOT PASS…. up the opportunity to check out this complete collection of Sir Ian McKellen's leading roles. Although our generation know him from a variety of venerable, silver-haired roles, make sure to check out a young Ian in films like 'Macbeth' (1979), 'David Copperfield' (1982), and 'The Scarlet Pimpernel' (1982). Gandalf was a stud!
