The Lord of the Rings trilogy of films will always be one of my favorite franchises of all time, if not my favorite. The books, of course, are even more fantastic.

I always felt that The Two Towers was robbed of that year’s best picture Oscar, and although the academy made up for it the following year with The Return of the King, The Two Towers also deserved the accolade more than Chicago.

The video above, which delves deeper into that almost-mythical sequence of the Battle of the Hornburg, provides a great analysis of just how truly layered the “middle film” of the trilogy was. It relays the true genius underneath the crowning battle of the second film and, in my opinion, shows why it was underrated for that year’s best picture trophy.

I think it’s time for another binge-watching of the three films.

Extended editions, of course. There’s no other way to watch them.
