Yes, Virginia, there really IS nothing they won’t try to debauch, defile, degrade, and destroy.
Amazon Prime’s “Lord of the Rings” series set to release in 2021 has been eagerly anticipated by devoted LOTR fans around the world. The $1 billion series will be set in the Second Age of Middle Earth, which spans 3441 years, before the events of the LOTR movies.
Unfortunately, it looks like the creators of the series, which they claim is based on J.R.R Tolkien’s original work, may be trying to imitate “Game of Thrones”-type nudity and “rapey” storylines. This, no doubt, will delight the left, who have long detested Tolkien’s writing and distinctive Christian influence on popular culture.
According to TheOneRing.net, the casting agency for the series put out an open call for actors who “must be comfortable with nudity.” In addition, Amazon Studios has hired an “intimacy coordinator,” and the writer and producer from “Game of Thrones,” Bryan Cogman, has officially been hired as a consulting producer.
Tolkien’s books were deeply religious and purposeful. As David Platt wrote in a “Standpoint” article, “Tolkien combined his extraordinary talent for story-telling and philology to communicate conservative and Catholic values and images through his captivating fictional tales of Hobbits, Elves, Men, and Dwarfs.” “The Lord of the Rings” is, as Tolkien said, “a fundamentally religious and Catholic work…”
As Platt pointed out, the left wins political battles “through the domination of institutions, the professions, culture and received thought.” The “social conservatism of Middle Earth” is one of the few things in pop culture that is antithetical to the left’s worldview and goals. Naturally, then, the left has employed their usual tactics to take down Tolkien and his Legendarium, pronouncing “The Lord of the Rings” racist, sexist, and non-inclusive of LGBTQ+ people.
The left is already cheering on the beginnings of the presumed assassination of Tolkien’s legacy. The leftist “NY Magazine” ran a story this week headlined, “Give Us the Horny Lord of the Rings Show We Deserve.” “Are we sure that an overwhelmingly erotic Middle Earth experience is such a bad thing,” read the article. “Make the elves get a little freaky. Allow the hobbits their fun. Give a new meaning to the inscription on the West-door of the Mines of Moria: Speak, friend, and enter.”
It’s actually a sickness, this insatiable megalomania filtered through the dark lens of the Left’s twin obssessions: politics, and sexual perversion. I’ll agree with one thing, though: a “horny Lord of the Rings show” actually IS what you deserve. Because an elevated, ennobling, world-changing work of literary art is over your pointy little head, far beyond the pitifully limited comprehension of intellectual and moral dwarves such as yourself.
What you deserve is exactly the kind of grubby, vapid, here-today-gone-tomorrow piece of garbage you’re going to get: a contemptible reboot of a bona fide masterwork thoroughly grounded in Christianity, collapsing into a sooty pile of pure nothingness from having all the Christianity excised from it. You lack the wit to realize why the only thing you’ll take away from the experience is a nagging dissatisfaction, as only an unimaginative brat’s bootless attempt at cocking his snook at the product of true creative genius can bring forth.
LOTR will live on regardless of shitlib vandalism and desecration; Porno Middle Earth will be totally forgotten the moment it gose off the air.
The tribe runs the Media in the West. And their goal is to destroy national sovereingty and wipe Western culture off the face of the earth to get their One World Government “utopia”. BAMN. So what ELSE would you expect?
Yes, I understand they are not the ONLY ones with that urge. But they lead the way!
This is guaranteed to be garbage. The left is incapable of comprehending the Christian themes Tolkien incorporated into his work about morality, heroism, sacrifice, and the meaning of nobility.
The second age of Middle Earth is largely the story of Numenor, its rise and its fall after being corrupted by Sauron. The entire thing is an allegory for the garden of Eden and the Fall, although Tolkien being Tolkien that is not all that it is. He worked a ton of other stuff in as well, while telling an entertaining story at the same time.
The left will of course be right in there, cheering for Sauron and the corruption. “Of course the men of Numenor should have seized the Undying Lands! Who were the Valar to keep the secret of immortality from men?” The entire concept will go right over their heads, mostly, except for the ones who actively reject it.
(Apologies for the Tolkien geekery. I’ve been a fan since I borrowed my older brother’s copy of the Hobbit decades ago.)
Once again, https://voxday.blogspot.com/ has been all over this from the start.
Go on ahead. Check it out.
Looks like someone is going to lose a good chunk of $1 Billion.
Dr. Evil and MiniMe are pinkies up!
Here is how I have found most of the streaming I see on Amazon thus far in their originals. The Man In The High Castle is a perfect example.
Season One: They hook you in with a good story, interesting characters, a mystery that keeps you wanting more to see what is really going on, and they stay largely apolitical. The good guys are good, the bad guys are bad, but most characters are living out their daily lives amidst the goings on.
Season 2 – they start revealing the mystery little by little and force characters to change. Those changes start introducing Woke theme and/or muddy character’s goodness with evil or vice versa. It’s still subtle and not really political but of course one gay person is revealed and at least one or more “good” characters are killed off. Leaving the ambiguous characters to carry on. Still you watch because the hooks from Season One are still interesting.
Season Three – Get Woke Baby! Good Guys do bad things, everyone is ambiguous, the heros are switched to another race and/or gender, the evil people are White Males (even the Japanese in TMITHC slowly moderate their evil and then leave the scene), and half the cast has a gay experience they enjoy only to be punished by the evil White Males. The final ending then becomes the only reason you continue to watch and thankfully finally gets there, only to disappoint. The buildup lasted the whole three seasons and the final ending goes out with a whimper in about a 10 minute sequence.
I think I am going to skip this LOTR.
