LOTR overrated

Ian Young
Ian Young

On recent watchings i realised LotR really isn't all that different compared to The Hobbit in terms of corny dialogue or scenes. I mean i obviously still believe LotR are the better movies here overall (and they'll remain one of my favorite movies forever), but the quality gap between the 2 trilogies isn't really as big as i originally thought.

Sure, The Hobbit has lots of flaws, but i started noticing a lot of scenes in LotR that would've most likely been shitposted about here 24/7 aswell if the movies came out today. I'm not talking about the obvious stuff like the Legolas shield surfing scene or whatever, it's mainly the dialogue i'm talking about.

Yeah you still get some Jackson spiel here and there but it's mostly contained to the third movie. Christopher Lee was one of the big reasons why that is. See now Lee was the ultra fanboy for Tolkien, having wanted to play Gandalf for decades and he really did not take any shit from Jackson when things weren't faithful. It led to one of my favorite anecdotes where Jackson was trying to explain to Lee how he wanted to reacted to being stabbed in the back. Lee then calmly explained to him that he knew exactly how a man sounded when a knife went through his back, after all he had been in the Special Operations Executive during WW2.

Saruman would be pointless in the third movie. The director's cuts only work if you read the books first.

All the extra scenes for the extended edition are literal trash, discarded in the original run because of low quality. They even look like the film itself lacks two or three passes of polish and postprocessing.

But the fans of the LOTR movies adore them. Why? Because it's more runtime. Get this: those who like the movies take their enjoyment from their extreme length, no more, no less. It sounds ridiculous, but idol starved minds will throw themselves at the first thing they can worship. They love that runtime as they do their life, in fact the extended edition gave them a longer life.

I'll admit I'm as much of a fanboy of Lee as he was of Tolkien. The guy really had a full life: being the step-cousin to Ian Flemming, his mother being a famous beauty, fighting in the Winter War, member of the LRDG, having to ask the King of Sweden for permission to marry his wife, being big guy (6ft5"), and being a damn good swordsman.

2. They're subpar adaptations with good photography. The hobbit by comparison is a terrible adaptation with garish CGI.

No, it's an extremely good book-to-film adaptation. Very good pacing if you exclude the extended version and the story development as compared to books is also well executed.
Most of the dialogue is either directly from the books or taken from different contexts. So you can blame Tolkien for the corniness. Which is pretty much expected from a saga based on north Europeans ones.
The sub-plots are well executed and wrapped up with precision. The Theoden death scene is an example of free writing that wasn't included in the books as Eowyn faints when she destroys the witch king.

LotR really isn't all that different compared to The Hobbit
The Hobbit is rape of everything that is good and fair. The only thing that was good in that movie was the Smaug-Bilbo scene which was pretty much unfuckable as they followed the book. Something that was incredibly rare in the whole movie save for this and the initial scenes.

it's mainly the dialogue i'm talking about.
And yet you give no examples. Give us some proof. Until then GTFO.
All dialogue in the Hobbit was pulled out of whichever kike's or focus group's ass was prime for shitting.

LOTR has corny stuff to it but it's all balanced with more serious stuff. Even the first hobbit movie has more serious stuff that made it seem like the trilogy might not be shit. What LOTR never does is pointless cartoon action that adds nothing and has no tension. The closest we get is legolas shield surfing and legolas taking down the mumakil, but both of those are part of larger action scenes that are relevant to the plot. The hobbit meanwhile has long sequences that have no real justification and consist entirely of dumb bullshit like the dwarves going Jackie Chan with some goblin ladders or the dwarves doing parkour around smelting equipment to cast a giant statue of molten cheese to make Smaug fondue.

Blake Jones

the weird thing about legolas taking down the mumakil, is that it's actually the climax of the battle besides the shot of the ghosts sweeping through the battle.

Peter Jackson is a hack and nothing could do the Lord of the Rings justice save an HBO miniseries or television show. About an episode per every 2 chapters is a nice amount. 62 chapters = about 31 episodes. Include the Hobbit in it, makes it 76 chapters and it's a decent 38 episodes. Can go for a full 40 episode run to be safe imo.

They were, but solely for the annihilation of the Umbar fleet of pirates.
After that, the ships were filled with Dol Amroth troops, which were tied down becouse of the pirates and weren't able to help Minas Tirith.
It's really interesting how Sauron waged economical warfare on the West. Although it's only nuanced in the books.

Dishonest Filmmaking:
(Tarantino, Alejandro González I?árritu, Wes Anderson, Peter Jackson, Christopher Nolan, James Cameron, Alex Garland, Paul Thomas Anderson, Nicholas Refn, Tom Hooper, Tyler Perry, Gaspar Noe, The Coen Brothers, Noah Baumbach, Denis Vilenueve, James Franco, Damien Chazelle) are intellectually bankrupt moral whores and charlatans; their films appeal to the modern phenomenon of the 'Pretend Epic' or Pseudo Cinema, often tied to the criticism that "It was a movie that thought it was a film" they have no ideas of their own and are filmed purely to have fancy essays made about them. They obfuscate their lack of insight under a smug impenetrable irony and often contain scenes with disingenuous attempts at depth with characters spouting platitudes that the director takes VERY seriously.
This directly panders to the IMDb reddit sensibility of quote circlejerking since these hacks are masters of the fools wit, "Quipping" (Not to be confused with the marvel co-opting of the word) , it sounds smart, cool and worldly but in reality there's nothing of substance, the Revenant's attempt at spiritualism was cheap and laughable and whilst someone like Malick has considered his philosophy, Inaurritu wears his introspection on his sleeve to give his film a false sense of depth with pathetic sermonising.

THIS is Dishonest Filmmaking.

They leech the greater works that preceded them; like The Enemy being a rip off Eraserhead, but they have nothing else to say.They act under the guise of deconstruction with surface layer obvious 'social commentary' and a quirky forgettable score praised as 'innovative'. They are all inauthentic sycophants that rely on oscar buzz and post 9/11 detachment for relevance.

These directors are hacks and will be forgotten to time. Some notably earnest filmmakers include, but are not limited to:
Mike Leigh
Alfonso Cuaron
Werner Herzog
Mel Gibson
Terrence Malick
David Yates
David Lynch

youre mostly right OP the movies are really nothing compared to the distillation of western spiritual history that is the LOTR trilogy, when they said that the books were impossible to adapt they werent lying.

theyre still good movies but they arent perfect adaptions and tbf a perfect adaption of the books would kill the normie

which do you think the sub50 IQ amerimutt is more likely to understand

"“Begone, foul dwimmerlaik, lord of carrion! Leave the dead in peace!"

A cold voice answered: 'Come not between the Nazgûl and his prey! Or he will not slay thee in thy turn. He will bear thee away to the houses of lamentation, beyond all darkness, where thy flesh shall be devoured, and thy shrivelled mind be left naked to the Lidless Eye."

A sword rang as it was drawn. "Do what you will; but I will hinder it, if I may."

"Hinder me? Thou fool. No living man may hinder me!"

Then Merry heard of all sounds in that hour the strangest. It seemed that Dernhelm laughed, and the clear voice was like the ring of steel. "But no living man am I!” "

serious adult books dont need "comic relief"
Comic relief comes from an ancient Greek belief that all theater should have tragic elements to appease Apollo and comic elements to appease Dionysus. The result was that the ancient Greek tragedies all had a handful of comedic scenes, as well as a companion "satyr play" wherein guys in fursuits would shit on the preceding tragedy. Comic relief is a tradition stretching back thousands of years and was used in most of the most serious works in history. When used correctly, the balance and contrast it provides serves to help viewers take the serious parts more seriously and generally makes stories better.

Unless you'd like to try to convince me that Sophocles' Oedipus trilogy was kiddie shit.

This is true, Norse mythology has alot of comedic relief in it to compensate for the overwhelming grimdark and metalness of the majority of it

This is why Loki exists, as he is a juxtaposition and offense to the gods, so too is comedy a juxtaposition and offense to real life and normies

This is also true though, I remember most of the comedic relief in the hobbit being close to the sort of comedic relief in the new Star Wars films POOOOORGS
