The Cinematic Tangent: Episode 55 – 'The Lord of the Rings'

The Cinematic Tangent finally sits down to talk Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy and J.R.R Tolkien’s Middle-earth.


The Cinematic Tangent is a casual-format podcast all about movies. Your hosts, Chad Michael Van Alstin and Bradley Redder, invite you to sit back, crack open a beer, relax, and get ready to think film. This is a talk show featuring film reviews, news, and general commentary, minus all the snobbery you typically expect from critics. These hosts are just two working-class guys who are passionate about the cinema arts, and they couldn’t keep quiet about it any longer. Give it a listen if you're tired of formalities.
