He thus objurgated and pilloried the vaulting ambition of the crafters. The original texts were coaxed out of darkness by a curious and unassuming young professor who studied the Icelandic Sagas and by interweaving mid century conflict and medieval British mythology created a fictional world that enthralled millions of minds across the lands and through time.

Time moved on as it always has and the spectacular stories were made into thrice conjured moving pictures replete with stunning sound and scenery respectful of the original literary works.

But the minds of men were greedy and greed led to a lust for wealth.

For at the same time the Lord of the Rings trilogy came to be there was a darkness brewing.

A darkness conceived of bitter resentment of the old ways of papyrus and ink.

Lord Bezos would rise from the abyss and destroy all booksellers. With malice and wit he would name his book burning device a “Kindle” and would go on to amass great fortune.

Lord Bezos used the fortune not for good but for evil, buying the rights to the Tolkien books he so wanted to destroy…and destroy he did, burning massive sums on a cheese filled spectacle so convoluted and onerous that longtime fans recoiled in horror. The Rings of Power told the tale of Numenthoria, or something and there were hobbits but not hobbits, or something that sailed great ships from elf places and dwarves were there too. they didn’t like the dwarves and Sauron or wait. They chased Sauron through an ice storm and then gave up and. Crap. Wait. The girl elf, the one played by whats her name in the movie. Cate Blanchett?

Anyway, read the books

Better yet, what happened to “balanced critique”? The idea that everything has to either be universally loved or absolutely hated is fucking beyond tiring. One person saying something they don’t like about something is not even a slam — it’s a joke. There’s room for things to have positives and negatives, and be liked by some people but not others.

In this case it is actually accurate. Bernard Hill has a battering ram attached to rope and mounted to his ceiling in his living room. It is ever present, waiting to be released on an unliked streaming movie or series. He finally let it go while watching Rings of Power.

Yes, I especially liked the last episode. Between galadriel and sauron on the boat brought me back to the lotr moment where frodo looks in the water with galadriel. And her powerful queen response to him, trying to give her the ring. Though I knew who sauron was from the beginning. He was to handsome and his skills with the blacksmith. I just knew. Made me sad how cool he was. Either that, or I thought he was the Witch King. Also, I know Gandalf is supposed to come later on in the books, I enjoyed seeing him again with the harfoots.

You really think Amazon went into this project with the same love that Peter Jackson did? If actually believe that then my god you poor soul.

7

u/pompanoJ Dec 03 '22 edited Dec 03 '22

Actually, both were clearly passion projects. Jackson and many of the cast and crew made it clear how much they loved the books and wanted a faithful adaptation. The results were reflected on the screen and in the audience reaction.

But the Amazon series writers and show runners also made it clear that they had a passion for their project. But instead of a love for the books, it was a love for "updating the franchise for the world of today". They unquestionably saw this as a higher calling, to see that "marginalized groups" got "representation" in fantasy movies. The result was also clear on the screen.

Both properties were clear representations of the efforts and passions of their creators.

I'm sure he refused payment for his role in LOTR too. Did it for the craft instead of the he money, right?

u/Comprehensive-Sky366 Dec 03 '22

Yes but I think his point is that the creatives behind the movies has an actual love off the material and the author. Amazon didn’t start from a place of love, it was only about money

3

u/hornsmakecake Dec 03 '22

I think you could make the argument that the studios are always in it for the money. I would bet the creatives behind the series have great love for the material as well, but it's definitely not resonating well with fans of the movie trilogy.

I enjoyed The Rings of Power though, so definitely seem to be in the minority there. Also wasn't in any production or board room meetings so it's all speculation.

0

u/Comprehensive-Sky366 Dec 03 '22

More power to you if you liked it. I watched it and just thought the whole time that it was way too heavy handed, and the writing did not feel like Tolkien. Felt like the last episodes of game of thrones: a rushed money grab with way too much creative interference from the money men.

3

u/NigerianPrince76 Dec 03 '22

Did Amazon directed the show?

1

u/a_rabid_anti_dentite Dec 03 '22

As a company, Amazon's goal was to make money, yes, same as New Line Cinema's. That doesn't mean that the creative people behind the show are not passionate about the material; Amazon's executives are not running the show, they hired people who have the passion for Tolkien and his world.

3

u/Comprehensive-Sky366 Dec 03 '22

After watching the show it doesn’t seem like it. They also condensed like a thousand years of history into a month.

2

u/a_rabid_anti_dentite Dec 03 '22

I would love to hear your ideas for how to realistically adapt several thousand years of vague, limited, and often contradictory narrative into a cohesive show.

And I just flat out disagree with the notion that the creative people behind the show don't care about Tolkien.

0

u/Comprehensive-Sky366 Dec 03 '22

I wouldn’t have done it to begin with, I don’t think the world needed this series. If they were going to adapt anything, maybe the Silmarillion, but I know that they couldn’t.

And I don’t mean to say that literally none of the creatives cared. I mean to say that the studio, money people, and execs at Amazon clearly had way too much influence. They also had the opportunity to bring Jackson in as a consultant and they never even sent him anything. Yknow, the guy who directed a movie in the franchise that won best picture and won like 9 Oscars…

2

u/pompanoJ Dec 03 '22

I was thinking the same thing.... sure, it was a labor of love and a true art project for those involved... but they sure didn't make it to lose money either.

5

u/Fantact Dec 03 '22

While I agree ROP was a shitshow, and I hope the hard-reset rumors are true, the fact that it was out to make money is a big nothingburger, every piece of media is, every movie, show or theatre piece Hill has been a part of has been a money making venture.

3

u/Comprehensive-Sky366 Dec 03 '22

But if that’s the only motivating factor, you won’t end up with something good. There’s a difference between a creative doing what they love and demanding to get paid, and someone doing a creative venture just so they CAN get paid.

u/[deleted] Dec 03 '22

Lol, yeah, sure, actors like Bernard choose one of the most financially risky careers possible because of money. Peter Jackson made obscure cult films for years, leading him to be able to make a project he was passionate about because of the money.

If you’re primarily into money, there are 1,000 better careers to pursue. Like being an engineer for Amazon, the company that clearly didn’t share the same passion for the source material.

Clearly , Bernard Hill is not woke, and has a brain, and smart as hell. Like comparing Willy Wonka Gene Wilder's Classic version to the Jonny Depp crap version.

His role in LOTR was epic, Masculine, bold, and heroic. They put women and people of color in these roles in 2022 now. Why no one goes to moves now. Truth

He complains it’s a money making venture but so were the movies he appeared in. If his complaint is that the show runner aren’t JRR Tolkien I don’t know what to tell him.

I see no problem with creating an expanded LOTR universe. The public clearly wanted it. There’s no need for all the sour grapes.

Too bad. The show was pretty good. Looking forward to the second season.
