  • Nice production values. That's about it.

  • It feels fake, not the realistic feel Jackson had. Similar to the fake feel the Hobbit had. 

    My 2 cents. It's not a good trailer, it's not bad. If there wasn't "before the ring" "before the fellowship" and a LOTR title, its indistinguishable from any other modern fantasy show. That being said, looking at the characters and knowing "that's Galadriel", "that's Elrond", "that's Durin" and you remember the Vanity Fair article, you have the sinking feeling that it's going to stink.
    So do all who live to see such times but it is not for them to decide, all you have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to you.

    Yes, it will. And when you know that they only had the rights to LOTR and the Hobbit, there is a ton of first and second age lore they are going to have to make up.

  • "Rings of Power"? :confused:

    Sounds like an exercise gadget that used to be advertised on TV in the 80's.
    "Just 4 easy payments of $19.95, call now, operators are standing by!"

    + S&H, of course ;)
    Patience is a conquering virtue. The learned say that, if it not desert you, It vanquishes what force can never reach; Why answer back at every angry speech? No, learn forbearance or, I'll tell you what, You will be taught it, whether you will or not.
    -Geoffrey Chaucer

    Unpopular opinion: I actually ended up really liking the Hobbit trilogy after watching it again recently. :cowboy:

  • Magnificent. Tolkien truly did succeed in making LotR a modern-day legend or myth, meant to be recited than read. If only he had narrated the entire trilogy...

    The entire LOTR and The Hobbit as read by Brian Inglis are very, very good if not excellent.

    oh boy. :facepalm::facepalm::facepalm: This Polish polar bear made a boo boo. Why was I thinking Brian? Must be the Tylenol 4s wearing off. Feels like Orcs have been using my legs for Mordor shuffleboard. :'(
