Despite its obvious attempt to capitalize on Peter Jackson's The Fellowship of the Ring, this "unauthorized tribute" to Lord of the Rings author J.R.R. Tolkien offers an adequate primer on the life and works of history's most beloved fantasy author. Tolkien biographer Michael Coren lends academic credibility, along with fantasy artists, lesser known film critics, and other nominal "experts" who comment on Tolkien's vast influence. The majority of this material is well documented and informative, and Tolkien neophytes will find it interesting. Then, as fast as you can say "snake oil," this video betrays its greedy motivations, showing bogus "behind the scenes" video of an anonymous production (i.e., not the Jackson film), and jumping on the Fellowship bandwagon with cheesy reenactments, parallels to Star Trek fandom, and innocuous speculation about the Jackson film's then unseen merits. Interviews with Tolkien family members are not included as promised, so viewers are advised to ignore everything but the legitimate factual material.
