Rob Reiner says Martin Scorsese was 'mad' about Marty DiBergi character in This is Spinal Tap

Martin Scorsese Helped Push Peter Jackson To Finish Filming The Lord Of The Rings

Peter Jackson's "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy will go down in history as one of the best fantasy film adaptations of all time. It has everything from elves, orcs, and hobbits to talking trees, giant eagles, and one seriously scary gold ring (I mean, can you imagine if that thing was a wedding band?).

It is one of the best epic tales ever written, and Jackson definitely did it justice turning it into films.
