Get Immersed in Middle Earth

If you, like me, are a huge fan of Tolkien, his books, and the original film trilogy, please disregard the reviews of critics who do not appreciate Tolkien's fantasy world to the ungodly nerdy level that you and I do. Disregard the "tomomater," the "fresh or rotten," and the score it gets. Go see the movie in 48 and 24 fps and decide for yourself. From what I gather, this movie was crafted with Tolkien fans in mind, not the general public. Enjoy it for what it is. Let it transport you. Get immersed in Middle Earth and forget what everyone else has to say. We go to movies for our own experience and enjoyment, not the critical acclaim, awards, and hype. So, forget what critics have to say. Enjoy some of the halfling's leaf and some ale, see the movie, and let it transport you.

I agree with most of what you said, but let's be honest, if the score ended up being 10% we'd all be worried. Luckily it seems like a good film, and being a LOTR fan, I can't wait to see it.

Tolkien is chilling in the Grey Havens now. Dial him up and bring him back to write another trilogy. We won't object.

Good stuff. Thank you. If that weird "Geordie" character starts trolling on this thread, don't even hesitate to respond. He's a lost and lonely soul.

THANK YOU. I need to visit Middle Earth again, regardless of the critics. Well said, Steve.

Thanks, David. People seem to be so preoccupied with RT reviews that their cathartic experience from cinema is lost, or at least sorely cheapened.

Exactly. Finally someone who speaks common sense! All these threads worrying about critics are getting ridiculous.

i feel incredibly stupid now about my thread from earlier. it's all crap to me at this point. sorry.

No need to feel stupid at all. I definitely wish the LOTR and Hobbit films would score 100%, win every Oscar (Like Return of the King practically did, and be cemented in the scrolls of history as the greatest films ever made. That being said, we can't let cave trolls and well-intentioned but skeptical critics diminish the otherworldly experience this film is bound to create for us.

Thanks! I'm new to RT (spend too much time in the mountains to know what's going on), but I'm glad I can offer some thoughts that at least counter the posts of those who, in the words of Gandalf, have "abandoned reason for madness."

Naw, I just blow the massive ring that lets Gandalf blow a ship made of smoke through it. But I am flattered, nonetheless.

What is painfully clear is that you get high on trolling. Be careful; you're dangerously close to overdosing on it.
