Harry potter, the Godfather trilogy, dusk? Please. There is only one film series to rule them all and noted Ringmaster Stephen Colbert proved it on Wednesday night (December 15th) with a mind-boggling hip-hop tribute to what he delivered. Last show viewers is the undisputed “greatest trilogy in cinema history”.
“And I know I’ve said this a few times before, but I’ve never – not once – rapped… until now,” he said, before doing just that in one. An epic five-minute tribute to his beloved trifecta from Middle-earth from JRR Tolkien’s film adaptations. “This is the number one trilly, try to deny it / And you look silly / World big nearly three billy / 16 times what they won over Save Willy», Rapped Colbert and the leader of the group Jon Batiste in front of a giant LOTR neon sign.
With Colbert wearing a classic white fur Kangol and a snow-white parka, the couple strolled through an old-fashioned video store as they took a dip the Godfather (“Doesn’t even have an elf!”) And Star wars (“Jar Jar can go ahead and suck my … ring”) and featured a quartet of hardcore hobbits: Dominic Monaghan (aka “Lil Merry”), Billy Boyd (“Big Pippin ‘”), Sean Astin (” $ amwi $ e G “) and Elijah Wood (” Frodo Motha F% # $ @ & ‘Baggins “), who dropped intricate and interwoven lines like Rivendell’s Run-DMC.
“Elf, dwarf, wizard, human, hobbits in the county / Bring the ring to Mount Doom and I’ll throw it in the fire,” Wood rapped nimbly. “The best trill ever and don’t forget it / That’s right Ann Kendrick, Perfect don’t you! ”Astin growled, which led to a shattering cut from a bewildered Kendrick at home unpacking his groceries and feeling very attacked.
“What the hell? I thought we were friends,” she moaned.
Colbert also stringed up a few ringtones, with the Wu-Tang Clan Method Man legend dropping some of his own Misty Mountain tracks from the top of a New York City skyscraper. “Lordy Lordy, we’ve won awards / Take down suitors like Aragorn’s sword, g / 17 Oscars, he’s the king forever / It’s more than these three mothers put together,” he said rhymed like posters of Mad Max, Casino Royale and Toy story emerges behind him.
One of Colbert’s rap best friends, Killer Mike, was also a part of Barrow’s blade swinging action, targeting a few other weak suitors who are about to denounce Kendrick again for his appearance in the dusk series. “Back to the future, oh do you have a Delorean? / We have sexy elves all over Lothlórien / An archaeologist? / Sorry, I’m snoring / That’s Indiana Jones and Borin Temple, he knocked, while sweeping the Black Knight series as “capitalist propaganda”.
Even Legolas himself zoomed in wearing a blue hoodie, gold chain, and a puffy, cloud-covered coat. “The women are gorgeous, the guys are cute,” rapped Orlando Bloom before giving way to Hugo Weaving to ditch elegant elven bars, while Gollum (Andy Serkis) played the flute. “the Lord of the Rings is the number one trilly, ”they all struck in unison to end the one celebration that would rule them all.
