Thrive to spite them

I forgot to mention about the Comanche dub.

Steph if you are interested in seeing some of it I can see what the time stamps are for the violence so you can jump around it. Even though it is gory it isn't all through out the movie and it's not just random things made gory for the heck of it.

Tom I was too.

Pleased with the OMitB finale. They are good at setting the hook for next season!

OMitB S2 Ep. 10

Finally they have someone pronounce "Chickasha" correctly.

It also had Luke [Macfarlane] being enthusiastic about dating Michael Urie while the latter would rather talk about how great his allegedly platonic roommate was instead of returning the interest. Godzilla movies have required less suspension of disbelief from me!

LotR: TRoP

Any thoughts yet on LotR: The Rings of Power ?

So far: pretty people, pretty scenery, and a few likeable characters, but I'm unclear about where they are going with the story lines.

We are Buffistas. This isn't our first apocalypse. -- Pix

I watched the first ep, dcp; thought it was pretty but I'm too familiar with the text, and keep getting tripped up by the choices they are making.

Things like: Elrond was highly regarded for his family connections and wouldn't have been left out of a meeting for racist reasons. By this point in the canon timeline, Galadriel has fucked off east with Celeborn, who we haven't even met yet? The kingdom of Lindon would not have sent soldiers all the way to Mordor to oversee human villagers in case they still support Sauron. That was not a thing. The High King of the Noldor did not dictate who got to go to the Undying Lands: only the Valar could do that. Finrod died in Sauron's dungeons, eaten alive by werewolves, while trying to help Beren and Luthien steal a Silmaril.

I think I have to treat the show as an AU: there's too much they legally cannot talk about (anything about the Silmarils or the Exile of the Noldor, etc etc), and they are compressing the timeline of what they can talk about in order to up the dramatic quotient.

I hope it's good! I want to like it! But I am concerned.

See? I gave everybody here an opportunity to tell me what a bad person I am and nobody did, because I fuckin' rule.

I knew the bonus Sandman would be Dream of a Thousand Cats, but I did *not* know about Calliope. That was a rough watch.

If I want to become a cloud of bats, does each bat need a separate vaccination?

Yeah, they're trying to piece together a narrative out of the appendices/some unpublished notes maybe but explicitly NOT the Silmarillion, which is a rough spot to be in.

On the one hand I don't remember the Silmarillion well enough to be bothered by specific details like that, OTOH it's also been long enough since I've watched an epic fantasy where I didn't know all the names and places in advance that I'm finding it hard to keep track of who & where everyone is. (The last show I watched with this level of pre-existing material ignorance was The Witcher, and I still have no idea what any of the countries or 90% of those characters are called because my brain just has them all filed under "fantasy name, will pronounce later")

Definitely a problem: I didn't realize that Bronwyn & Arondir were in what later becomes Mordor!

My sister insists that I watch the show with her so I can hit pause and explain things for her. Her fiance fell asleep 10 minutes into Ep 1. :D
