Rename the LOTR Movies

Post by bungobaggins on Thu Apr 24, 2014 6:01 pm

In light of today's news, I thought it would be a fun exercise to rename the LOTR movies from the viewpoint of a cynical marketing executive at New Line/WB.

Serious answer:

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the Shadow
The Lord of the Rings: The Treason of Isengard
The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Ring

Spoiler:
These are actually the titles of the LOTR-related volumes of The History of Middle-earth and come from Tolkien's own brainstorming sessions.  They seem to fit the theme, though. Razz

Lord of the Rings: A tentative experiment that paid off
Lord of the Rings: Said experiment maxed up
Lord of the Rings: MORE MORE MORE!!

The Hobbit: The coloring book you threw up in
The Hobbit: Lack of utter restraint
The Hobbit: The experiment has utterly failed.

And by experiment, I'm referring to technology
