    "The Fellowship Of The Ring" Turns 20 This Year, So Here's A Bunch Of Jokes About It

    One does not simply get over the fact that this movie is 20 years old.

    Hello, I'm Allie, and I'm here to tell you that — as with most now-nerds — The Lord of the Rings film trilogy was my entire LIFE when I was growing up in the early 2000s.

    For the record, I was neither a Legolas girl nor an Aragorn girl...I was a Faramir girl. No, I will not be taking further questions on that, and yes, it does tell you everything you need to know about me as an adult woman.

    Anyway, the first film in the trilogy, The Fellowship of the Ring, is turning 20 YEARS OLD in 2021. I! Am! Ancient! I! Am! A! Relic!
