On this episode of The Hollywood Outsider podcast, we're discussing the 20th anniversary of the beloved cinematic nerd achievement Lord of the Rings, the beginning of one of the ballsiest choices Hollywood has ever made: filming a fantasy trilogy, all at once, when fantasy like this was not popular at all. And make no mistake, you can thank this series for Game of Thrones, Wheel of Time, Witcher, and numerous other fantasy shows getting greenlit. It showed there was an audience for it as long as you did it right.

Also this week: we say goodbye to 2021 by discussing Kevin Feige and Disney's inconsistency on whether the Netflix Marvel shows are connected to the MCU, the disaster that is known as entertainment journalism, and podcasting officially becoming mainstream by showing up in film & television, as well as Movie Innuendo returns for a Christmas edition.

Also announced on this episode, The Hollywood Outsider presents... Bad Movie Night! Coming to your podcast feed on December 20, 2021 from the vault.
