Saw the UK movie Sword of Xanthen (The Ring of Nibelungs). Word is that it inspired Tolkein to write Lord of the Rings. I can see why with the whole cursed ring idea. Oh course, curse ring and gold has been in fairy tales through the ages. I enjoyed Sword of Xanthen, a 3hr movie. The story is great. Now they need to put a proper budget into remaking this film. If not a trilogy, do a two 3hr movie with the same care as Lord of the Rings. Of course I'm dreaming .
