Scoop Links: LOTR Reviews

Reviews are pouring in for the first the first installment of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Fellowship of the Ring, following yesterday’s premiere in London.

For New Zealanders chomping at the bit for any tit-bit of LOTR news ahead of next week’s Middle Earth premiere, here’s a selection of reviews, both from so-called “geek sites” and UK news sites:
