      The protagonists of these stories have plenty of opportunities to fall by the wayside, but they don't.

      It tells the story of two main lines, one is the experience of the protagonist Xiao Duo and others overcoming many difficulties on the way to Doomsday Volcano, and the other is the experience of the Ranger and others fighting the villains such as the Demon Lord on the frontal battlefield.

      The Fellowship of the Ring team was forced to disband under the raid of the orc army. Rangers, elves, and dwarves tracked all the way to rescue the captured...

      The filming is OK, but the original plot is not.

      After finishing the Lord of the Rings trilogy at 3x speed + fast-forward, the film is good, but I feel that the original book is too well-known... The plot is procrastinating and boring, even if the characters are thin, the key is the lack of creativity, I feel like the original author made a simple design first. Determined, and then push the plot forward and backward from a point. If the plot is too bland, add a little twists and turns, and increase the setting by the way. The fighting...

      hope, peace, love

      The first part is the opening chapter of the trilogy, and the overall tone is to suppress first, the happy life of Shire in the early stage, and the slightly exciting pursuit of the Nazgul in the middle stage was soon overshadowed by the beauty of Rivendell. But the more lighthearted and joyful these plots are, the more mournful and confused it is when Gandalf and Boromo died in battle and the Fellowship of the Ring fell apart. The second part, as the middle part of the trilogy, must be a...

      Sth is worth fighting for

      Frodo: I can't do this, Sam.

      Sam: I know. It's all wrong. By rights, we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened?

      But in the end, it's only a passing thing this...

      human civilization

      What is human civilization? I personally think that human civilization should be in harmony with all things in the world. This is in line with our current proposition that green waters and lush mountains are invaluable assets. The construction of ecological civilization is a national plan related to human development, rather than having you save me. The battle of death and the battle of success and failure. With the development of economy and society, all kinds of possible things have...

      I always think that the second part is the most shocking one in the trilogy. The scene of Gandalf descending from the sky in the deep valley scene is still vivid in my mind after many...

      It feels better than the first one, and the magnificent war pictures are more exciting and a bit tactical. There are no neutral nations to stay out of a war. Hot weapons only have bombs, so why don't you get a few dragons to destroy human beings...

      This one is more like a branch of the whole story, mainly about Aragorn and the Elf Prince establishing a profound revolutionary emotion through a great battle. Bladder challenge for two weeks in a row, this time I learned to enter without a drink. The hour-long castle defense battle was completed in one go, and the blink of an eye felt guilty. Aragorn's emotional line is beautiful, and he is extremely considerate to the eyes of the...

      A man, either a boy or a father, this is a story of a boy. In the story, man is translated into human beings, the old and the weak, women and children waiting for redemption, and men who face adversity for glory. In addition to being praised for heroism, I haven't seen more. Being bewitched is a hard setting and cannot reflect the backside of human nature. Only ignorance really comes from people themselves. Kindness and trust come inexplicably. Victory depends on the right and the lack of...

      7/10. Revisit. Sam, who climbed down the cliff at the beginning, risked his life to guard a small box of salt, because salt poured out his love for natural life. On the other hand, the orcs lacked a cultural foundation and stole the corpses of the same kind. They were the crude working class created by cruel industrial power, so When the tree crowd attacked Saruman's Valley of Industry, demolished the dam, when the archers fluently killed the mammoth war, and after the battle of Helm's Deep...

    Movie plot

    The hobbits Meri and Pippin in the Fellowship League were taken away by Ochs, and the Fellows of the Fellowship had to work separately. Frodo and his friend Sam continued to march towards Modu, the territory of Sauron. On the way, they subdued the monster Grum, who was also frantically looking for the Lord of the Rings. The Lord of the Rings once brought him the way of longevity and invisibility until Frodo's predecessors. Bilbo took...

    Behind the scenes gags

    The original novel was originally written in one go, but due to the severe shortage of paper after World War II, the cost of such a thick book was too high, so the author had to divide it into three parts and rename it.
    The crew was fortunate to find a swordsmith who was "like a wrestler" from Wellington. This man used ancient methods to build weapons and never used modern equipment such as airbrushes. Therefore, a sword usually takes 3...

    Movie quotes

    • Theoden: Why should I welcome you, Gandalf Stormcrow?

      Wormtongue: A just question, my liege. Late is the hour in which this conjurer chooses to appear. "Lathspell" I name him. Ill news is an ill guest.

    • Gollum: [to Frodo] Don't follow the lights.

    • Galadriel: The time of the Elves is over. Do we leave Middle-earth to its fate? Do we let them stand alone?
