all you need to know about paid reviews is this absurd review that reads like pure sarcasm but is an actual 10 star vote:
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power" has practically become a declaration that rolls off the tongue and gathers tones of fan-crazed passion and pop-culture promise before it leaves the mouth. What Amazon Studios did with this production is nothing less than a game-changing take on what is even possible for a television show. Streaming and series will never be the same again.
In its dual-episode debut, "Rings Of Power" created a golden benchmark for not only established adaptations but also storytelling for the small screen. Both episodes made me feel as though I was back in theatres watching Peter Jackson's trilogy come alive. While it was saddening to hear they didn't get back to the man who gave us three of the most evergreen titles that will grace the "Lord of the Rings" franchise, the team who worked on "Rings of Power" regardless served excellence that would have made Jackson smile.
But I cannot continue without first stating just how proud this production would have made J. R. R. Tolkien. That was no mere man but a legend who has in recent decades inspired a slew of rich adaptations. But originally, the outstanding nature of his writing has been a constant source of inspiration for writers and novelists everywhere, especially those interested in world-building and high fantasy. No reader worth their salt will come away from a Tolkien book the same.
In "Rings of Power", just the way they captured the life and times of disparate races - Elves, Dwarves, Humans, Orcs - and creatures galore from Tolkien's literary Second Age of Middle-Earth was a testament to the screenplay writers' sheer determination to make this series a resounding success.
I loved every frame, and am now surprisingly confused about which scene I should start praising. As with most breathtaking undertakings of this kind, I shall endeavor to start at the very beginning. The creation myth Tolkien crafted in his book "The Silmarillion" found admirable translation in "Rings of Power".
Episodes 1 and 2, namely "A Shadow of the Past" and "Adrift" respectively, were directed by J. A. Bayona, who brought excellence to bear on each frame. Writers J. D. Payne, Patrick McKay, and Gennifer Hutchison did superb work scripting the magnificence I saw on screen this night.
Bear McCreary's musical scoring was stirring, warm, chilling, and brilliant. He captured the soul of this franchise and that's saying something after what Howard Shore did with the original trilogy, and "The Hobbit" movies that came after.
Aaron Morton, Alex Disenhof, and Oscar Faura created enormously high standards for cinematography with their work in "Rings of Power" - such sweeping panoramas and intimate close-ups. The production design and editing teams deserve their weight in gold for their work in helping bring this story to life. The art direction and set decoration teams did superb work. Hair-makeup, sound effects, and stunts were outstanding. Kate Hawley's costume design was exemplary - every stitch and hem was on point.
As for the CGI and VFX teams, they were the de facto hobbits from the Aragorn-crowned scene in "Return of the King". According to Variety, they used "20 VFX studios, nearly 10,000 VFX shots to revive Middle-earth". This crew certainly bows to no-one but we shall bow to them.
Galadriel, played by Morfydd Clark, was outstanding - her performance redefined so much about this iconic and inspiring character. In just two episodes, Clark proved to be the Wonder Woman of the Tolkien-verse. Her acting also paid due homage to Cate Blanchett's take on the character.
As for Sauron, he is a particularly significant character in the Tolkien-verse. In connection to him, we are yet to see what actor Bridie Sisson will be bringing to the series. Perhaps some sort of religious devotee or ritual summoner? Sisson lived up to that 'aura', as witnessed in the trailer. Future epis may reveal Sauron's true identity.
Poppy Proudfellow, played by Megan Richards, was remarkable. Elanor "Nori" Brandyfoot, played by Markella Kavenagh, was great. Some 'new Frodo and Sam' vibes with those two, only Harfoots instead of Hobbits.
The stranger, potentially Gandalf (!), played by Daniel Weyman, was intriguing - his performance was rife with mystery and magic. Fans know the true origins of Gandalf, and wizards like him. They are not exactly human. Future epis will reveal more, I'm sure.
Celebrimbor, played by Charles Edwards, was good. Theo, played by Tyroe Muhafidin, was also good. Elrond, played by Robert Aramayo, was superb - so many subtle and skillful throwbacks to Hugo Weaving's acting in the original trilogy. Arondir, played by Ismael Cruz Cordova, was amazing. Bronwyn, played by Nazanin Boniadi, was good. Thondir, played by Fabian McCallum, was also good. Halbrand, played by Charlie Vickers, was noteworthy.
Sadoc Burrows, played by Lenny Henry, was memorable. Malva, played by Thusitha Jayasundera, was quite good. Marigold Brandyfoot, played by Sara Zwangobani, was great. Rowan, played by Ian Blackburn, was notable. High King Gil-galad, played by Benjamin Walker, was quite good. Princess Disa, played by Sophia Nomvete, was superb. Prince Durin IV, played by Owain Arthur, was exceptional - his 16-piece beard transformation was itself a lesson in hair-makeup excellence.
We saw what turmoil the villain at the start of this epic, namely Morgoth, brought to bear. We also saw how his tyranny and power-lust influenced and inspired the rise of his devoted servant, the sorcerer Sauron, he who was responsible for later forging the One Ring, which mastered the titular rings of power smithed by Celebrimbor.
All other cast and crew did enchanting work in "LOTR: Rings Of Power" E01&E02 now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
As I write this review, I am dumbfounded and incredulous about the sheer magic they wrought in "Rings of Power". Every scene was akin to an immersive painting - languages, cultures, races, cities et al. What a relief for us fans who have been waiting with bated breath to see just this at long last. They not only set the groundwork but also built Tolkien's world atop it all in wholesome and glorious detail.
I offer my sincerest gratitude to Amazon Studios for making millions of fan-dreams come true in our lifetimes with the brilliant work and hard-won excellence you forged in this intricate and time-honoured production. In the spirit of Pippin enquiring after 'third breakfast', I eagerly await the third episode with a heart heavy with satisfaction and beating with expectation. This is the stuff Tolkien-dreams are made of.
To pretentious. They thought that a massive budget would be enough. I've seen films with a really low budget be brilliant. Poor direction poor writing, horrible characters. 1 billion down the drain lol
Amazon knew from the get go they couldn't buy praise from Peter Jackson.
I was charged over 200 dollars by Amazon for a prime membership without purchasing anything from them for over 3 years. I had to demand a supervisor. They could not explain why it automatically added. I found that when my primary debit card associated with the account expired, it was added again. I had a second card associated with the account, and they used it as an excuse to add prime to my account again. I had canceled it over 4 years ago. Full refund? Nope! THEY ONLY GAVE ME 80% Bezos is such a dickhead. He gets away with fraud and dick pics because he's rich.
Of course he pays for fake reviews. The show is at bad! They have become exactly like Microsoft. Rich and greedy to the point that they hire the most incompetent people out of the country so they can get away with dishonest charges and make you spend hours running through hoops to get help, even when you have a legitimate fraudulent charge to dispute.
They do it because the can. They give fake reviews because they can. They're so rich that they know they can get away whey basically anything. They have so much money, they can basically steal from everyone to make more money. Everyone is in their pocket and it's pathetic.
My Amazon review was rejected due to "terms and conditions" bull shit.
the only character I enjoy is Arondir- Just because he would make a good witcher
Yall are hating on nothing
Dont worry amazon, I am coming to your rescue let me order another package. Do you have any black elf matter t-shirt left????
LMAO so other YouTubers where "corrupted" by the influence of the "One Amazon"?... Dude we are reaching God Tier Irony right now!
"NINE RINGS FOR THE YOUTUBE INFLUENCERS WHO ABOVE ALL ELSE WORSHIPED POWER"
Yet some Resisted
Last Alliance of Nerdrotic, HeelvsBabyface and Geeks and Gamers marched on the tower of Mt Amazon
That these people honestly believe they are on the same level as Tolkien is insane to me?... This is next level arrogance!
Well, hopefully the shills that sold out have ended their careers. Any time in the future that these sellouts offer an opinion of any sort, I hope they are buried under a tidal wave of "Did you get paid for that comment? Was it worth your integrity? Why would anyone care what you have to say?"
Is a $Billion loss enough to wake Amazon out of their wokeness? Probably not.
Think about that... They spent $Billion, but let the casting go through without review, let the scripts go through without review, did not acquire the rights to the core material, and fired the expert!
Amazon had so very many opportunities to do this well and correctly, but made the deliberate choice to vilify their audience, instead!
If I was an Amazon exec, I wouldn't settle for firing the show runners -- I would entrap them in iron clad contracts, then banish the show runners, actors, actresses, and marketing team to the basement to exterminate other vermin for the rest of their lives. After wasting a $Billion, I would be willing to spend millions in order to end their careers and excise them from the public eye. Perhaps parade their soulless shambling husks through the boardroom before every annual meeting as an example of the price of willful defiance of the intended market.
That dude will probably clear a million viewers after this. Good for him.
I guess that Nerd of the Rings is paid aswell!
Money can’t buy honest friends
Hey, I watch hellofutureme as well. Kutos to him.
The show is empty.... HARD PASS. When forced diversity becomes extremely insulting to customers and 99% of the planet population. This practice needs to stop...
I don't like this show u am racist according to them it's shity show
Check out IMDB, SO many 10/10 star rating from fresh accounts that have never reviewed anything before
