One Ring Rules Box Office Politics

In tonight’s episode of Popcorn Politics, Eric Cunningham and I discussed the Supreme Court, Trump’s taxes, and barbecue. Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death set off a chain of events that could shape the next 2 decades of political battles. We talked about Amy Coney Barrett, Trump’s nominee, as well as the effects court-packing, could have if Democrats go down that path. Trump’s taxes are a story that I don’t find as important as most people do, everything we learned from the NYT article was stuff that Trump admitted to in 2015. Finally, the most important story of the week, Cal Cunningham called grill food barbecue; will this end his North Carolina Senate bid? Eric Cunningham argues that the blunder could cost him, me, I think it’s just bizarre that this is our focus.

Lord of the Rings Fellowship of the Ring is my least favorite installment in my favorite trilogy of all time. This film is fantastic, methodical in pacing but still with a bombastic score, deep characters, and top-notch production design. The sheer amount of content in this film is staggering, Boromir has a betrayal and redemption arc in the final act of the film, and yet it works. No character feels worthless even if some are underutilized. A lot of credit for the strength of this film goes to its score according to Eric, and after hearing his explanation, I’m inclined to agree. Each character is perfectly cast for their role, nobody is out of place in this movie, besides that the pure talent on display here is worth talking about. The ensemble that was put together for this film is more impressive today because of how many careers this movie elevated.
