      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?...

      See I was tortured to death. . . There is no real bad guy, justice will always triumph over evil, everyone will always make the right decision in the end, and I have no interest at all in the war scenes, and in the end, Aragorn's wife didn't even die. . . . . . Want to have such a big reunion? . . . ....

      2021.05.14, re-screened after the epidemic. As soon as Grey Harbor is gone, history becomes stories, stories become epics, and epics become myths. Odo hides, the elves retreat, the dwarves die, the hobbits escape, the fourth era occupied by humans is better than Mordor without Mordor. Death and war are just the blooming flowers of evil, but their roots and growth are all the time and everywhere. From the moment Gollum died, Frodo understood his own inescapability. When Sauron began to annihilate

      As a mythical style story, "The Lord of the Rings" inherits the simple ideological theme and narrative structure of ancient mythology: heroes defeat demons, and justice defeats evil. However, Tolkien, the author of the original book, did not stop at creating a single character image and expressing a simple mythological theme; the screenwriter and director also strictly followed the main theme of the original book, with a slightly lengthy but extraordinary ending, giving this epic blockbuster...

      IMAX2D/4K restoration revisited. When the broken sword is recast, when the king returns. It is the end of the epic journey and the node of the legendary road. To the most sincere friendship, to the greatest adventure and the courage to break the boat. Middle-earth, there will be a period in the...
