What did I think of it?
Never watching this shit
>>168004480Based and same, haven't even watched the trailer.
>>168004425>giant nigger just loomingIt's like they are just asking to fail.
I DONT AGREE, AND I NEVER SHALL
>>168005557It's not an official poster, but they are begging to fail anyway.
>>168005557It's not an official poster.But I genuinely can't figure out whether it was made by a genuine fan or out of mockery.
>blings of power became a realitylmao
>>168004425Why would I eat a big pile of shit even if its free?
Get dat bussy rang playa
>>168005688because you're racist if you dont.
>sauron specifically buck broke niggers
>>168005688WHATS THE MATTER ANON
I was there Gandalf, I was there the day we cleansed the Elven race.
>>168005920>ISILDUR! Cast the dark ones into the fire! Destroy them!
>>168004425Naw, I'm good F.A.MGonna watch the lotr box set. You can keep your woke Aids.
>>168004425source to leaks? quick google and a scan of torrent sites, not a sausage.
>>168005617>But I genuinely can't figure out whether it was made by a genuine fan or out of mockery.neither: it was made by the people who have been seething for 20 years because Peter Jackson's trilogy didn't have any black people in it and it was still super popular. They're making this to try to overwrite and replace it.
everything the cancer of leftism touches, becomes cancer. an ugly one. fucking hell
>>168006124He's a retard that thinks that early screenings are equal to leaking.
>>168004480>>168004547Same here. Fuck this woke trash
>>168006124>>168006330The only "leak is pure Marketing bullshit.>We screened an episode to "fans", who are, like, TOTALLY not working for us or our subsidiaries, in, like, any capacity. No sirree! And guess what? They all loved it and they all clapped!
I just don't care about this at all quite frankly. I'm not interested.
>>168005704I knew I smelled bussy juice
>>168006124Nothing has leaked, nobody has even seen a single fully formed episode yetThey showed the first three episodes (unfinished) to Vanity Fair journos in November and a handful of scenes (20minutes) to some fairly well known Tolkien fans last week
>>168005975Sounds good uncle rond!
>>168006212>it was made by the people who have been seething for 20 years because Peter Jackson's trilogy didn't have any black people in it aThis isn't even a strawman, they looked at a groundbreaking piece of cinematic history and their only thought was >yeah but why are they all whiteUtter, spiteful mutants
>>168004425Is that Don Lemon in the corner over there?
>Show is full of white (British) men playing chad Elf, Dwarf and Numenorean characters>This is LeBad according to teeveeAbsolute state of this board
Fuck race mixing and fuck this film
>>168004425A diehard fan wouldn't touch this shitpile with a ten foot pole.
>>168008033Amazon did the same with Wheel of Time and it was a total fucking disaster kek.
>>168009376Yeah and Rhodesia was full of white British men but look what it looks like now
>>168010783They did and they loved it
>>168010980Just like the "fans" they got for that one video where they all just talked about how much they heckin love diversity?
>>168010845The Wheel of Time pre screening was also praised by the “fans” who attended.
>>168011208Who just happened to get an all expenses covered trip to the screening paid by Amazon. But I'm sure they were totally unbiased and just totally blown away because it was so good.
>>168004480wow this is literally me!
>>168005587>It's not an official poster,Why does that matter? Is there something wrong with it?
>>168011303Oh I’m well aware anon, they were bought and paid for and I will forever look at them with contempt for selling out.
>>168009376>nigger dwarf queen>nigger elfNo thanks
>>168011609Literally, and I mean literally, nobody cares about those OC characters
>>168011591I hope the show gets canned immediately after S2 so that all those "WoT-tubers" who bet their livelihood on being able to make videos about the show for a decade+ will have to go back to flipping burgers. Spineless cucks who didn't have the balls to call the show out for being shit.
>>168008294"""" Tolkien Fans """""
>>168012901Yep Tolkien fans, like the ones actually contributing towards the community and helping maintain Tolkien's legacy by providing educational content, fan sites and other online servicesNot the ''''Tolkien fans'''' that are only into LOTR because of the funny maymays they saw on 4chuddel.org
>>168013459How convenient that the """fans""" always end up having issues with Tolkien's work and are happy they can finally "fix" it.
>>168010980So they're just rehashing those trannies who viewed it and totally weren't specially selected>folks
you thought x was gon give it to ya
>>168013915>>168013965>>168014007Imagine anyone giving a flying fuck what that trainwreck of a "person"'s opinion is.
>>168014007What an utterly pointless human being. This is what useless people have to do to justify their existence, I guess. Find flaws and problems everywhere and then proceed to "fix" them.
>>168004480Same. I will, however, watch the extended cuts of all three movies
>>168014074I can't wait for these freaks to be bullied off of Twitter
>>168013915>>168014007Sup fellow tolkien fan!
>>168014090Those who lack the ability to create can only destroy (or "deconstruct")
read the notes of tolkienread his letters during the warthis series is everything tolkien wanted in fantasy
>>168004425Not enough Mexicans to be honest.
>>168014137Meh, I'd be happier to see them contained there instead of invading our spaces.
>>168014074Imagine even reading that shit, you know better, fren
>>168014204The wood elf is Puerto Rican, so close enough
>>168004425Does Sauron win and ethnically cleanse Middle Earth until the last alliance of Men and Elves in this show?
>>168014198Have a (You) for the low effort baitNobody else reply, I've already fed him
> Quick we cant make established white characters black from the books> ok just make every king characters wife blackYeah it wont look retarded how both the Numeronian king and the Dwarf king will have black wives. I bet they are mad as hell that they cant blackwash Galdriel's husband. No wonder it looks like he got cut from the show
>>168013459Tranny, tranny go awayYou're not a womanYou're just gay
>>168014384I'm convinced these anons are just autists who get bored and decide to larp by posting egregious shit knowing full well it'll get a response. Yet I reply anyway. More fool me huh
>If you’re not a racist, it’s likely you’re feeling anticipation, nerves, and possibly some excitement. I remain firmly on the fence: I’m cautiously excited to see a new side of Tolkien’s magical world, but I haven’t seen anywhere near enough to understand whether The Rings of Power will pull it off successfully or not. I’m also of the opinion that adaptations of Tolkien don’t impact the canon or affect how I read the books, which some fans seem to struggle with. If the Rings of Power is bad – which it might be – it will not make me frown at The Silmarillion the next time I pick it up. I don’t particularly enjoy the Jackson/Walsh/Boyens trilogy’s depiction of elves as emotionless Vulcan-lite creatures rather than happy, hippy, forest spirits, but it doesn’t spoil my enjoyment of the characters when I read the books.
>>168014227I actually didn't. Skimming is your friend. First clue is listed pronouns, that's a first identifier for narcissism.
Gonna watch the extended editions of the trilogy with cast commentary again. Never gonna watch this shit. Simple as
>>168014467Really bodes well that they have to immediately pull muh racism card to deflect criticism.
>>168014384AND MY AXE.....wound
>>168014467The sheer impotent rage that drips from hack journalists and their pathetic little articles these days really makes me chuckle.When will they realise that ignoring valid complaints over what are clearly just cynical decisions to race swap everyone and labelling everyone as "dumb racists who just can't stand to see black people" doesn't work? It has the exact opposite effect. Long may it continue, I've seen so many normie nerds get redpilled by RoP alone
>>168014467Only Tolkien scholar I trust is the guy who's been making sure lotro has been true to the universe for the past decade and a half
>>168014382>cut from the showNot cut, but it doesn't look like Celeborn will be in s1But let's not pretend like his some big import character anyway, guy won the middle earth lottery and married an elf way out of his league. He's entire life is just him walking in the shadows of his wife
>>168014467>If you’re not a racist, it’s likely you’re feeling anticipationracistbros...
>>168014384You don't like dwarvesYou don't like elfsSo why don't you just go hang yourself?
if you know you wont like it. Don't watch it.I know its going to be a shit show. getting mad over bad content is boring now. maybe i will watch a shill thread when it comes out to see the dumpster fire. But its going to mirror the halo threads.
>>168014551anon, they don't care if people criticize it. in fact, they want everyone as hopping mad a possible. because they can use that outrage to pretend anyone is watching it. but they don't actually need or want viewers, as with streaming, tons of people watching = higher costs.streaming is an inversion of the entertainment business model. they are actively attempting to shoo people away from watching anything they make. they're making money by farming blackrock ESG points.
>introduce a nigger>"If you don't like it, you're racist!"Lmao
>>168014733No they really do care, hence the impotent faux-smug rage and hence more and more companies (such as Netflix) now demanding their staff cut the woke crap out as it's tanking the share price.ESG needs fucking addressing though big time.
>>168014871they know we know they lie. the smarmier they are, the madder people get. as the goal is to make people as angry as possible, over nonsense, as possible. because then they can count people who haven't even watched the show, as proof of viewership/interest.all that matters is quantity of people talking. its like clickbait, no one cares why you clicked on it, only that you did.
>>168014871>now demanding their staff cut the woke crapproof? its okay, we both know this is just your fantasy interpretation of a global economic recession.
>>168014007I want to smash my boot into this square head’s face
>>168015030>If I just deny it, it isn't happening
>>168015233>dailymailso... no proof.
>>168014382Honestly, I don't think giving Tar-Palantir a black wife is up there with the worst things they could be doing. She's never mentioned in the books so that's how they get away with it and Numenoreans interacted will all races of men across middle earth.Obviously this means Tar-Miriel is half black but I think they are having Numenor being their more 'diverse' location anyway seeing as one of Isildur friends they invented is played by a Maori actor.
>>168015030>'As employees we support the principle that Netflix offers a diversity of stories, even if we find some titles counter to our own personal values.>'Depending on your role, you may need to work on titles you perceive to be harmful. If you'd find it hard to support our content breadth, Netflix may not be the best place for you.'Couldn't be more fucking blatant than that. Now how about you go to somewhere a little less traumatizing? Why are you here?
>>168015259What a predictable response lmao.Here's the memo from Netflix itself. Scroll down to Artistic Expression:"As employees we support the principle that Netflix offers a diversity of stories, even if we find some titles counter to our own personal values. Depending on your role, you may need to work on titles you perceive to be harmful. If you’d find it hard to support our content breadth, Netflix may not be the best place for you."
>>168015405>>168015259And here's the link- or did internet chuds spoof a fake Netflix website just to post this?https://jobs.netflix.com/culture
Amazing how these troon freaks fuck off when they lose an argument. Are they paid to do this or are they just that pathetic?
>>168015233They're not demanding shit. All they're doing is giving parity to programming. The woke shit isn't going away. But instead of 100% woke garbage it's 95% and they're telling their staff to not throw tantrums over the other 5%.The staff at Netflix want white, right wing men dead, their kids on hrt with their dicks cut off, and their wives and daughters raped by niggers. They've shown that for a decade now. But they suddenly have to start pandering somewhat to an edgier crowd and the white makes all come running back. Fool me once
>>168014209>invade our spacesthey come here no matter what, are you retarded? we must bully them publicly and loudly so they either stop being fucking brainwashed kike pawns or until they rope. either is acceptable.>>168014589kek
>>168015651And they're only doing it because their shares tanked. If white men were smart they'd never come back, let Netflix keep sinking and die, and when something actually came along that was good from the start and run by people who supported them rather than had to temporarily hide their hatred of them to make enough money do they can go back to hating them later, they'd support that instead.
>>168004425why do you need melanin if you live underground? is the black dwarf captured and forced to live underground? are blacks slaves in tolkien now? seems pretty based
Looks like a proper trailer might be on its way soon
>>168015447so what level of mental gymnast do i need to be in order to construe this document as a condemnation of "woke?"
Slightly off topic, but somebody made this 2min fan animation of Fellowship of the Ring and its fucking amazing The Balrog scene is uniroincally better than Jackson'shttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z736R0gSUw0
>>168015737>If white men were smart they'd never come back, let Netflix keep sinking and dieThat's exactly what I plan to do.
>>168016808Here you go
>>168005704Where we snackin on bussy playa?
>>168014323I'll feed you my cock faggot
>>168018406listen, i'd love to see a company decide blackrock ESG points aren't for them, but i'm still not seeing anything that resembles a condemnation of woke. much less any sort of implication woke is being scaled back in their actual programming.its also worth noting that daily mail is owned by netflix's competitors.
>>168004425i just need to see the poster to know that it'll be utter dogshit
>>168018952We know what the business-speak is here but I agree with your general skepticism. It's just funny seeing troons seethe over this and getting fired.
>>168019097do you often find yourself laughing at scenarios that are only in your head?
>>168010980Nothing there says they liked it.They were likely "blown away" by it's awfulness.
>>168013915>>168014007>How do you do fellow Tolkien fans! Don't you hate how faithful to the source material the Jackson films were? They would've benefited from culturally subversive themes and having niggers in every scene, don't you agree?
>>168005704First Star Wars, now this, is there anything he can‘t play?
>>168014384>Tranny, tranny go away>You're not a woman>You're just gayI'm thinking of printing some stickers. Don't even need to talk to the troons.
>>168004480It doesn't exhist as far as i am concerned
>>168004425Should have chosen a real dwarf "queen".
>>168019567>that ABL feeling
>>168019095Clearly not a real poster, dipshit
>>168018952That is as condemning as you are going to get. Tolerance is rape to those people.
>>168019849>zero condemnation is the most you're going to getpretty sure that was my point all along
*Saves your show*
>>168004425Do niggers even watch this stuff???
>>168020362Yep, one of the biggest Tolkien TikTokers is a black guy from New York
>>168008294It seems to me that if the thing were actually decent they wouldn't have to leak anything. Sounds like a desperate attempt to gin up interest in a pile of shit. If Christopher Tolkien's rotting corpse rose from it's grave just to say it was a thousand times better than he could have hoped for I still wouldn't watch it.
