The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring Movie Summary

Frodo lives an idyllic live in the Shire, where he and his uncle hang out and smoke dope with a pointy-hatted wizard named Gandolf. When Frodo’s uncle, Bilbo Baggins, retires to live with the elves in Miami, he leaves Bilbo all of his possessions, including a magic ring that can make the wearer disappear and that has a strange propensity to draw unspeakable evil near.

Gandolf checks Wikipedia and learns that this ring is the so-called “one ring,” created by the evil genius Sauron. The ring gives Sauron the power to control all creatures in Middle Earth, at least so long as you don’t cut it off his hand. If you do that, it kind of works against him. But I don’t know the particulars of the magic.

Gandolf sends Frodo off with the ring with his fat hobbit friend, Sam and their two goofy, totally strait friends, Merry and Pippin. They are supposed to meet him at a bar in a town not too far away. On their way, they’re pursued by some undead horsemen seeking the ring, ring wraiths. They narrowly escape to the town. While there, they meet Strider, a wandering fighting type who takes charge of them.
