"Especially knowing that she's a sorcerer supreme. It's kind of weird. That's a very politically correct way of saying that, yeah. It's for me, for me, personally, it's always going to be compared to the lord. Can't do it. It's always going to be compared to it. Even The Hobbit. It's actually making The Hobbit look a little bit better. That's shocking. Yes. Because fellowship was terrible. Yeah, I didn't like it. The first one. Oh, no, sorry. That's the Lord of the Rings. The Hobbit was all right. You don't like the Fellowship of the Ring? No, I didn't. What? I thought it was drawn out. I didn't like it. I just didn't. Feel betrayed. Listen, I like the two towers. I love the last, I didn't like the first one. Shocked. I didn't like it. My thing was that the very beginning and you say that the rings of power is what again? Listen, the very first Lord of the Rings. No, no, no, no. Listen, when Frodo's dancing, it looks so fake. It was so nice. Stop. So terrible. The CGI is awful. We're gonna say the dancing of the first. I was terrible. It got better. It got better. I mean, I like when they're inside and let me guess you watch the theatrical versions and not the extended version. You have to watch the extended version. I'll lend you out my subscription. Listen, I have a podcast. Guys, listen up. We're doing Lord of the Rings in depth. We're going to do a live viewing of them, and we're going to convince them that they are great filters. I love the movie. I love two towers. I love the king. I just return to the king. I just didn't like the first movie. I mean, it started off with great action to reel you in. And then you got to the hobbits and then you say the rings of power is okay, it's good. It's great. Okay, wow. Listen, my opinion. That's no, it's definitely your opinion. Ben, everyone is entitled to their wrong opinion. Why did the last hours too? I hated the last Star Wars. Those were crap. Okay, I'm not a Star Wars head. We want to talk about Star Wars. But Lord of the Rings didn't like sir. I love the books. Hey, token was incredible books. That's true. I'm actually getting through some of them at the moment. Yeah. And I think it's great that C. S. Lewis and him were best friends. And you could see that the combination between the two and tokens influence. So I'm a big fan of Tolkien I'm a big fan of C. S. Lewis. I just wasn't a fan of the first movie. Okay. I feel like a betrayal has happened today. I think it was our home from now on. And the year happening. I don't know. Do you like the first hobbit better than you like the Fellowship of the Ring? No, I didn't like the first time I did that. At all? Okay. I would like to say that I watched animated films as a child when they're singing and stuff. And I really enjoyed those. I love those. I thought those were great. And then my expectations going into them was basically, so I might be biased because it's basically off those cartoons. And in the cartoons, it was really fun. Smash that dishes, crack their plates. That's what Bilbo baggins hates. That stuff was awesome. To me, that was great. And it was rhyming and 15 birds and 5 for a tree. I mean, if you watch the cartoons, you'll appreciate that. I mean, they made a musical out of it, and it was really fun. I mean, okay, yeah, fine. I mean, even Christopher Tolkien didn't really like The Lord of the Rings all had my style. It was just a big action thing or whatever. But you know, it's just the comparing it to the rings of power. If you can just, if you could just admit that the rings of power is not as great. No, it's not, but it's better than the Targaryens. As it put on the red light rock Santa. All right guys, so back to most of McCarthy. Melissa McCarthy has nothing to do with lord of the and she's happy. She's happy. It's all good, guys. Thanks so much for tuning in this week and we have some more fun things on the horizon, some more good movies where heading into spooky season. As you know, the best season will be covering some old and new horror. So fun things to be excited for. Anything else? Yeah. All right, so I'm so shocked. You know? I have traumatized the dorms. Thank you. All right, everyone. So thanks for listening and please tune in next time to what was happening.

"This is this is this is just the practice. So guess how much amazon's lord of the rings to cost for one season more than all. The game of thrones really four hundred and sixty five million dollars for a single season. Why would any studio pay that kind of money for a single season. Is it that the the they really think they're going to make that much. Rather revenue from streaming advertisement is is for one amazon. It's probably going to be a freemium. That's going to do something that probably get people to go. Plus a fact. It's lord of the rings but enough people willing. Yeah there's there's there's a what are they called. There's people who like what they do is study talking. Yeah okay i i mean i i get people being uber involved with storylines books like somebody else. I know about doom. And things like that right. And i so i understand that to a degree but my goodness gracious. How many episodes are they talking about. Let's see amazon studios. The lord of the rings. Television shows going to cost all the gold and the lonely mountain by the way hollywood reporter. I actually appreciate that. Hollywood reporter has current firm. The amazon will spend roughly six hundred fifty new zealand dollars. Roughly foreign sixty five dollars. Why are we talking. Zealand's the story out of new zealand. That's probably what's going to be filmed see where i can tell you is amazon's gonna spend So far they don't say how many episodes so the figures were released as part of the new zealand. Government's official information act a while. Oh so far. I don't see anything where they actually say. They may not be ready to release the details on. This is kind of a leak by comparison. Hbo's gamma three cost. Roughly one hundred million to produce per season with its per episode cost around six million for the season. One eventually rising to Fifteen mil per episode in season eight. Wow so season eight was the most expensive and it was the worst of the worst season from everybody. I now i don't know that's i just so i understand one of the problems i have. I mean i. I'm a big stream streaming as far as watching things now. I watch probably stream more stuff than i do. We don't have cable but we have satellite but anyway Other than local news and stuff like that and you know we pay for all the different whatever it may be discovery plus disney plus bravo bops house. Oh video yeah. I mean we for all those because there's always a show or two that we like to watch the kind of gets you that way but part of buying into that services. We don't see advertisements. So how are they generating revenue to make that kind of revenue back membership. It's probably gonna really still. I mean it might be primarily to see it so so all the also everybody is going to be jumping on becoming a prime member. That's what i would do well. I'm already prime member. So i the other questions Doesn't do me any good right. The other question is do. They have access to the silla maryland because christopher tolkien hated peter jackson with a passion. And basically said yeah. You're not getting anything else from my father. Like my cold dead hands. So if they have actually access to the back of the backstory in the maryland this could be a version of lord of the rings that we've never gotten before have more in depth information it also..
"christopher tolkien" Discussed on The Catholic Culture Podcast
"And i've actually been working on this this book which i have not finally finished obviously for ten years And and it took so long mainly because i kept finding so much stuff and what i started out thinking that i would have a hard time even finding enough to write a book about and ended up with over over two hundred individual titles almost hundred and fifty specific authors that he knew engaged with and that he definitely knew you have evidence for him knowing. This is just similarities or hypotheses this is evidence and so a good after accumulating all this material and seeing just how seriously tolkien was in fact engaging with the literature of his time. I stopped nas myself. How on earth did we not realize this before because it really is the general consensus that talking Barely didn't read anything. Pass chaucer You know there's this sense in the in the recent bio pic token. He's he's depicted as completely ignoring anything. Modern he's depicted as a light is a lot of popular biographies even a lot of academic biographies just pickup. That line of you know. He also critical works on token or the inklings. Just take it as a given that. He wasn't interested in modern literature. The hated modern culture that he was firmly stuck in the middle ages. So where did that come from Now i wanna know that certain elite tolkien scholars have noted various instances of of him reading modern literature but not realize that there was a pattern because everyone assuming that he didn't read moderniser. The anyone book was an exception. So that was what got me asking the question. Why why did we get this. And i think exhibit a carpenter statements in the authorized biography that says token read very little modern fiction and took no serious notice of it. Boom there is his authorized biographers saying that he took no serious notice of of modern literature and that is just simply factually incorrect. It's just not the case. So i started asking myself how you know. What is this based on and turns out the carpenter is not as reliable source buyer graphically speaking as we might have thought that he was So he was pretty upfront about the way that he was able to write this biography and also the kind of the approach. He took towards in his attitude towards writing biographies. In general right. Yeah this was. This was actually shocking. Because i i started out suming as one does that. As the authorized biographer. He'd been carefully checked out how to track record of publications cetera and that he'd been really intentionally chosen. None of that is the case I discovered that he had just kind of wangled his way into the project he had originally been picked to help out to write captions for the book that eventually became the tolkien family album and he had been working for bbc radio and the publisher rayner unwin. Who is involved with this project. Thought as he wrote later about this he said well it doesn't take much talent experiences right caption so sure bringing this carpenter guy and carpenter just enmeshed himself in the project. And then i started tracking down interviews. The carpenter given and carpenter himself was asked straight up one interview. How were you chosen by the tolkien estate. And he says will. I wasn't chosen. I rather forced myself upon them. He says that. I forced myself upon them. He went round to individual members of the family. He says and said well. At least i know oxford a little bit. At least i at least did met. Your father knew a little bit. You better pick me or somebody. Worse will come along. So that's he had no published books. He had this was his first book length. Biography he just kind of pushed himself as a great project have wrote the book in under two years on the book was then Eviscerated draft but christopher tolkien ripped it to shreds Found it completely..
"christopher tolkien" Discussed on Just King Things
"Joe hill have have written a couple episodes. I think maybe they roach the first and last episode or something like that. Okay They they wrote the last episode together in then. Owen king It's yet stephen. King and owen king wrote the last episode together. And i think owen king has co written. A couple of the other episodes garnered is the one who punched up the ending to eleven twenty four sixty three. I know you guys really haven't talked about that book. But isn't that the story that he actually helped king fix the ending to that book. Which i won't spoil but has actually pretty good ending coverage. I think we got it. Well that maybe bodes well then. If one of his sons is helping yeah owen. King has almost i think the vast majority. Because he's also ryder. But i think the vast majority of his published output has been with stephen king. Okay so he's just sort of helps us data. Has that vibe. I my impression. Is that when stephen king inevitably passes the person who will like continue. Those projects are finished. Whatever needs to be finished would be owned king. He he feels like he is the Christopher tolkien of the king family god it okay. Like the guy in knives. Out like the saudis. Yes that's kind of uncharitable. I guess.

Yeah yeah we knew we were being rewarded. There That i really enjoyed the story. And and so yeah. I'll be waiting to see what comes of that. Because i could see it and as i was reading i could see it on the big screen. So just Tales that that are so magical and and so powerful that that i think even non fantasy fans enjoy them they may not admit it but we know they do a lot of the theater but was what's cool about the work that michelle lee falin does for your work is i.

But it'll be ancient mirrors ever need and Yeah it is kind of exciting you know to to have them separated like that and And they say a concept artists for video games folks works for baseline thirteen games. And so he has that game art background and characters. It comes through in the characters. He's working on one of the winged men for me now and I just i looked at it. I went oh my gosh. There's just you know it's just as detailed and and it's just as beautiful but it's so different from michelle leaves work that it does set them apart and that's really kind of nice to see so that was probably a wise decision..
Middle Earth Minute: The Numenoreans
"I'm going to be talking about. The Newman orients the new minorities. Were that race of men. If you remember in the movie airborne was a new minority in. They had a long life and they got their start. After the downfall of more goth sirens master Saharan fled but the gods the allies what they're called rewarded the men a group of men for helping in the defeat of Serotonin more goth and gave him this island. I king of the Newman orients was l Ross. And he had a brother named L. Ronde as we know from the movies they were half Elven so they could pick either the immortality of the elves or the mortality of the men so l. Ross chose to be one of the men but also the land that they got from the valor. They also gave them long life as we know in the movie airborne was seventy six seventy eight. I think if I remember correctly so they gave these men. The Newman orients extended life. They typically lived around four hundred years of age sometimes a little longer later on. They didn't live quite as long. But we'll get that in the later on this island really good. They loved the valor on the Gods and everything good but slowly but surely they started to decline. They wanted not only a long life. They wanted immortality like the elves became jealous of the elves and wanted immortality. They were told that they can never visit the West. If you remember in the movies the end Bilbo and Frodo and Gandalf and some of the others went on a ship and went to the West. They went to this place called the undying land. The deal the valor made with the new minorities was that you can have long life but you can never go to. The undying land will later on generations later thousands of years later in fact they said No. No we're not going to be banned from that. They call it the ban. R- actually going to go to the undying land anyway. And so sorry. Ron Shows up on the scene later. On the Newman Guide extremely wealthy and very arrogant. And that's why they decided to say you know what we're going to them dying land anyway. We don't care we're better. We know better and sarin help feed that. In fact he came to the island as a prisoner and faked being captured by one of the minority and kings. And that's where all this got started. And the Valor said. We're not having any of that. As soon as one of the kings went to the undying land he destroyed the army and sunk the island. And so basically. This is tokens version of Atlantis. But as we know some of airborne's relatives he still door remember. He was from new minore. They left the island before it sank and established colonies in middle earth. And there's where we get gone door fascinating fascinating story. I definitely don't do it. Justice but the whole story has a lot of intrigue and you can find a detailed story of this in the Sylmar million towards the back. It's called the Cala Bath and it's only about thirty pages long and goes into much more detail of the capturing of SAR on and the deception. He gives the king and how he moves. The Newman orients down that dark dark path to the point that they start doing human sacrifices as well. Then there's another book called. The Tales of new Minora and middle earth has even more little short stories about the different kings of new minore and how they had shifted over the years and started getting more evil also in the return of the king. If you remember there's those a pen nixes in the back there's one in there called Appendix B. That gives you an outline a time line. Excuse me of the second age which is when this whole Numidian. Time-line took place and it gives an outline of the second age and talks about how they started. And how you can see there that they slowly disintegrated down to basically evil so you get little tidbits of the new minority ans even in the Lord of the rings books the Cala Bath and the other. The unfinished tales of numerous men are numerous middle. Earth just gives you more detail. One of the quotes from the tales of numerous middle earth is this. They turn their play into great matters and great matters into play. I thought that was just a fun quote from the book and that one details of middle earth is written by Tolkien but edited by his son. Just like the Iranian Christopher Tolkien so what Christopher Tolkien did in a nutshell is take little stories that his dad wrote but never finished and kind of put them together. In a more cohesive matter. Not The best as you know by. The million is very disjointed. But that's the best he could do so he might find a couple of paragraphs about the new minority in kings over here and he finds another two three or four pages about the numerous Newman. Orients over here and put them all into one book? And that's what he did definitely check out the bath in the back of the sylmar million or tales of new minore in middle earth or both good and the Cala bath is very short so you can probably sit down and read those thirty pages very quickly and it's just a fun read. I just but I'm also a token nerd so take that with a grain of
