This week on the cast, Admir, Osama and Fahad delve back into the critically-acclaimed trilogy of The Lord of the Rings with a discussion about the second film, The Two Towers. The trio compare the sequel to its predecessor and highlight what areas were improved on, discuss whether the sequel is one of the "all time greats" in Cinematic history and highlight the few aspects of the movie that they felt let them down.
We journey to Helm's Deep to discuss one of the most acclaimed movie sequels of all-time, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. We cover behind-the-scenes stories, pros, cons, and, of course, the sequel test. My special guest for today's episode is Michael Voller.

Much like Sam and Frodo, we're walking in circles around an Isengard's worth of Tolkein analysis as part of our LOTR month! And if you can't understand that sentence, turn back now. We're joined again by friend of the pod Ginnie Lee House to milk a whole bunch of religious parallels out of The Two Towers (though at the end of the day, we simply have to throw our hands up and say it's a musical). Join us for Trevor's misguided rants about the author, battle fatigue, the question of lobster mortality, and a fish flopping Frodo. Also, give us some good BIPOC representation in fantasy, already.

In 2002, Peter Jackson released the second of his trilogy of the Lord of The Rings films with The Two Towers. The second installment has the fellowship separated and continuing their voyage as Frodo and Sam make their way to Mordor while the remainder of the group does their best not to think of them at all. Starring way too many people to list here this film is packed with potential and made quite a few pennies at the box office. But, does it hold up? Listen in as Jon, Colin, Brent, and returning guest Dave debate hobbit's holes and which wizard has the biggest staff as we try to see if this flick is still our precious, or if it should be cast back into the fire from whence it came.

Frodo and Sam have a new bestie Gollem that is causing some friendship drama on their quest, Merry and Pippin are hanging out with trees and basically stuck in a never ending work meeting, and Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli are just running around getting themselves into random battles.

Does Gollem have multiple personalities disorder?! Released in 2002, it is the 2nd movie in the award winning trilogy directed by Peter Jackson.

Hallo zusammen! zeitgleicher Produktion aller drei Filme, bereits ein Jahr nach dem Auftakt. Zum Ende des Jahres 2002 stürmten die Fans in die Kinos, immer noch begeistert von THE FELLOWSHIP. Entsprechend groß müssen die Erwartungen an THE TWO TOWERS gewesen sein. Auch auf inhaltlicher Ebene stellt sich der zweite Teil einigen Herausforderungen. Wird er genauso aufregend, mitreißend, episch? Einerseits muss er die Bindeglied-Funktion als mittlere Handlung erfüllen, andererseits ja auch eigene Höhen und Tiefen erzählen. Darüber und noch viel, viel mehr sprechen Niels, Michi und Jan in dieser Folge. Wie wird mit dem Thema Hoffnung umgegangen? Kann man die Welt in Gut und Böse, schwarz und weiß einteilen? Wie entwickeln sich unsere diversen Helden im Verlauf der Handlung, nun, da alles Vertraute hinter ihnen liegt und scheinbar unmögliche Aufgaben vor ihnen liegen? Weiterhin geht es um Lieblingscharaktere, Anekdoten aus der Kindheit und ein vages Ranking der Teile. Genießt die Feiertage und viel Spaß!

Continuing our journey through Middle Earth, we head to Helm's Deep to discuss the second chapter in The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, ‘The Two Towers,' recasting it in 1985!Welcome to the second part (of three!) of our attempt to take Middle Earth to the Mid-80s, as Tanner picks between Cory and Nick's choices for this round of Tolkien characters! We've planned this out as best we could, (and limited it to 8 characters per episode), continuing from last episode to highlight characters from across the trilogy!Will Nick lose it trying to appeal to Tanner's TV heart? Will Cory be successful in retro-fitting this cast in true 80s fashion? And what does Jesse have to think of all this madness? Hit play to find out!
I denne uge snakke vi om The Two Towers, eller De To Tårne - anden film i Ringenes Herre-trilogien. Er det værste film i serien? Er Helm's Deep det bedste slag nogensinde optaget på film? Og er det Tolkien der fandt på hele Warcraft-universet? Vi forsøger som altid at svare på en ekstremt blandet landhandel af forskellige spørgsmål i måtte have til filmene, og kommer desuden ind på de nye karakterer der introduceres til serien, fremskridt i VFX og meget andet. I næste uge runder vi episode 100, og hvilken bedre film at gøre det med en afslutningen på den bedste trilogi nogensinde - Return of the King. Det bliver vildt, så glæd jer!
The normal nerds are taking on a new challenge, watch it till we hate it.

There comes a time when you have to fight, even if it seems hopeless. I think we're at that point in our culture. And no, I'm not calling for actual violence. I'm calling for us to simply rise up and speak the truth, even when it's hard. You may not want to be the one to take part in the battle. But when it's time to fight, you don't always have a choice. I think this book demonstrates how we ought to act when we're up against the wall and see no way out. "Arise now, arise, Riders of Theoden! Dire deeds awake, dark is it eastward. Let horse be bridled, horn be sounded! Forth Eorlingas!" - J.R.R. Tolkien Sign up for the email list here. How to Know it's Time to Fight It can be hard to know when you should stand your ground and fight. Sometimes it's clear, and sometimes it's murky. However, I think right now we can clearly see that our culture is under attack from many directions. Some of the most basic truths are being called into question. We don't trust our institutions, and deservedly so. Furthermore, the education of our children is being undermined and used to indoctrinate them. So, if you ask me, it's time to push back. It's time to fight. Fighting for a Lost Cause But, how do we go about that? Has the left not completely taken over the culture? While they may have taken over most of the culture, I don't think fighting back is a lost cause. It may be a long shot, but they were able to systematically and radically subvert the culture over the past century. I think we can play their game of inches as well and flip the culture. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/conofourgen/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/conofourgen/support
Sean and Cody set out on an epic quest through Middle Earth in this, the most nerd-tastic episode of Green Screen yet. In the 2002 fantasy epic The Two Towers, part of the Lord of the Rings saga, mild-mannered hobbit Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood) and his gardener and possible boyfriend Samwise (Sean Astin) are on a long walk to pitch a magic ring off a short pier into the fiery lava chasm of Mt. Doom in an attempt to bring an end the disagreeable and environmentally unfriendly Sauron administration. Meanwhile, a CGI special effect with a split personality (Andy Serkis) plots to take the ring for himself. And there's a huge battle scene. And orcs. Environmental issues discussed include the ecological vision of J.R.R. Tolkien, the author of the source material; the “Black Country” of late 19th century England and its despoliation by coal mining; the linkage between power and environmental destruction, embodied by the history of oil and climate change; and the early theories of ecology that were developing at the time the Lord of the Rings books came out in the 1950s. How did Tolkien's upbringing and his experiences on the Western Front in World War I shape his expansive environmental vision? Was Peter Jackson faithful to that vision when he made these films? Of all the Lord of the Rings books, why was this one the most difficult to turn into a movie? How did New Line Cinema manage to flush the billions of dollars it made on these pictures right down the toilet? Is Sauruman an employee of the Koch brothers? What's the fastest way to reverse climate change? Could this movie have been made in 1939? What does this film have to do with The Thief of Baghdad? Why is Ralph Bakshi ticked off at Peter Jackson? How many different ways can Maggie Smith pronounce the words “Mary McGregor”? All these questions and more are ready to be cast into the fiery chasms of Mt. Doom in this fantastical episode of Green Screen.
