      why no six stars

      I highly recommend it, and re-watch the Lord of the Rings trilogy. The last one is too exciting, and the emotion it contains is too rich. The expression... I
      found that this kind of CCTV also needs to be cut. It is violent, bloody or not. Porn is so incomprehensible, so inhumane. After a bit of calculation, the whole film is 262 minutes and 55 seconds from the beginning to the end of the ending song, how much wonderful content we have wasted, sin! Love the battle of Gondor, the scene is...

      About Avatar and The Lord of the Rings

      Epic blockbusters, ten years of sharpening a sword, gods descending, James Cameron, the next era of movies, these words do not need to be explained, and they are enough to make people pay to go to the cinema to see "Avatar". . So I also took this mentality to find out about it.
         "Avatar" is the work of the famous director James Cameron. Before the movie was released, the advertisements were already bombarding the sky and the sky. The major media and various media scrambled to use...

      Life is like the journey of those two hobbits

      I reviewed the third book of The Lord of the Rings on the train home two days ago, and just reviewed the Lord of the Rings trilogy again. I've watched The Lord of the Rings a few times and I can't even count myself, but every time I watch it, I get something. I guess it has something to do with my own experience as well. I was an ignorant student when I first read The Lord of the Rings, but now I have gone through studying abroad and working, and now I live independently. I used to go to watch...

      Home is behind . The would is ahead. And there are many paths to tread. Through shadow to the edge of night. untill the stars are all alight, Mist and shadow. cloud and shade, all shall fade. . The road ahead is long, breaking through the darkness and reaching the edge of the night. The stars twinkle like day, the haze and mist, and the dark clouds will all dissipate.

      who is the cutest

      The Lord of the Rings rerun.

      Who is the cutest person? Put the question aside.

      George Martin, the author of "A Song of Ice and Fire", said that good and bad people, justice and evil have long been written by Tolkien (the author of The Lord of the Rings), and he will not write them. Netizens said it well, Tolkien is epic, Martin is conspiracy. Are the good people you think are good people, and are those who look like bad people bad people?...

      In the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, the most interesting characters are not Frodo, Gandalf, nor Aragorn, Bloom, although they are all leaders or leaders with a halo and have important roles, but It was Sam, the little man who volunteered to die with Frodo. In an environment where almost all the characters have their own epic momentum, he is the symbol of man and represents the good conscience of...

      The Lord of the Rings may never be seen on the screen again in the future, but definitely not today. Thank you Tolkien for creating this world and Peter Jackson for projecting it on the big screen. Middle-earth forever! #End When Frodo recovered from his illness and woke up, the Lord of the Rings expedition troops walked in from the door with their sweetest smiles....

      "Maybe fear will trump hope, and justice will be wiped out by evil, but not today!" What a sacred and great force when all people are united and fought for the same reason, regardless of race or country. It's like the world never stops turning. When heroes triumph, their homes are rebuilt, and a new king is crowned... Everything is quiet, and a new chapter begins. (Faramer leads a lonely army out of the city to meet all the heroic sacrifices of the enemy is a...

      After the three films, I can only say that it is not my dish: many scenes are as bad as the pictures of the games in the Internet cafes in memory, many plots that are understandable and dispensable, many 2B stupid characters, many bridges with cool skills . This kind of film cannot become a classic, at least ten years later, many of the contents have already made people feel vulgar and even annoying. I think after the technology upgrades, a remake is definitely...

    • Legolas: The horses are restless, and the men are quiet.

    • Legolas: The way is shut. It was made by those who are dead, and the dead keep it. The way is shut.

    • Gimli: Well, this is a thing unheard of. An Elf would go underground, where a Dwarf dare not. Oh, I'd never hear the end of it.
