Review by Rankin-BassFriend (posted on 1-Apr-2005)

Rankin-Bass Return of the King: ***** excellent!

I love this movie! It's something that I always desired to see, I've got the movie on DVD and it rocks!

Frodo in the movie is really awesome. His big brown eyes are always sweet and very touching, his brown hair is so soft and silky. Orson Bean makes a great Frodo, Roddy McDowall is brilliant as Samwise, Casey Kasem makes a good Merry with his old Shaggy voice from Scooby Doo, Sonny Melendrez makes an awesome Pippin, he makes him a real like teenager.

Frodo of the Nine Fingers is a great song, Glenn Yarborough is a great man and a wonderful singer. I always fallen in love with Frodo in this animated movie, because he is so sweet, brave and very gentle-hearted. He has a voice of a brave man and he looks like an angel.

I really love this movie and I'm going to give this movie more than four stars of ratings. In fact, I'm going to give this movie ten stars! Awesome movie man!
