Post Lord of the Rings and anything Middle Earth related here.
Haven't really watched Lord of the rings only a little and I didn't pay attention really. Is it worth watching?
If you are ok with violence and stuff, it will be the greatest movies you've EVER watched.
EDIT: also read the books
I love violence(in movies of course ). I'll watch some time. Should I read the books before I watch the movie and how many books are there?
Well worth it, and while it may seem out of order, it'd probably make more sense to go through the Hobbit films first and then onto the LotR films, since they're in reverse chronological order. Though, I guess they're completely different stories, so it's not absolutely necessary to do it that way, it's just odd jumping so far backwards for the Hobbit films after watching the LotR films.
It's doesn't really matter IMO, the books are wayy different then the movies.
Hobbit is one book, LotR is three books, but there are other books in the Middle Earth universe, such as the Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales, really up to you how in-depth you want to go
Alright thanks I am running out of shows to watch on Netflix anyway. I was so into lost until they removed it off Netflix for some reason
Probably won't read the books then.
You should, they're reeeaaaly good
Oh absolutely! I cannot say enough good things about the Lord of the Rings trilogy. It's inspirational and teaches great life lessons like the how anyone can make a change in the world no matter how small or insignificant you are. It was my inspiration to start writing fantasy as well. As for the Hobbit trilogy... it's meh. I'd recommend watching it, but it's not nearly as good as LotR.
Haha, maybe I will then. I am always told I should read more during the summer anyways.
I'll second that. The books are radically different from the films (poor Tom Bombadil ) and they offer a LOT of backstory as to why certain things happen (or certain things that did happen in the books that didn't in the films, and vice versa). Worth looking into, at any rate if you do find you enjoy the films.
Alright I'll look into it. Thanks for the feedback everyone I look forward to watching it soon.
Ah LotR Conquest... I really didn't like that game too much. Speaking of Middle Earth video games, has anyone played Shadow of Mordor or War in the North?
I just added that picture cause it looks epic XD. I've never played those games, Shadow of Morder look too demonic for me but I want War in the North
Shadow of Mordor is much, much darker than anything in LotR, but it's still a great game worth checking out. As for War in the North, it's pretty cool but repetitive. The combat isn't very deep and the story is average. The best part is you can see a lot of iconic characters from the trilogy like the Fellowship, Bilbo, and Elrond.
I'm playing through Shadow of Mordor just now on the One, picked it up during the recent Xbox sales. It's a great game so far, though feels like they pulled the combat right out of Ryse.
Looks pretty good.
Or did Ryse pull the combat from Shadow of Mordor?
I think both games took inspiration from Batman Arkham Asylum's combat system. A lot of games seem to do that nowadays which makes sense since that combat system was revolutionary.
You found one of the bad images XD
