  1. I expect there to be a full explanation of how these "Mithrilchlorians" bind the whole universe and all beings together and how the elves can best hear their will and enact it. "Did you ever hear the tragedy of Myth-Elf The Wise? I thought not. It’s not a story the Elves would tell you. It’s a Dark Lord legend. Myth-Elf was a Dark Lord, so powerful and so wise he could use Middle-Earth's Power to influence the Mithrilchlorians to create life… He had such a knowledge of the Power that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying. The dark side of the Mithrilchlorians is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful… the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. Ironic. He could save others from death, but not himself."
  2. The mere descriptions found on the internet of this shows various travesties to Tolkien's writings is enough to deter me even further away from it. It just seems to sink to whole new levels of awfulness in terms of how unfaithful is it to the source material. And how horribly written it is in general.
  3. Purchased these today. I have never owned either of these scores before so it was about time to get them. I am glad Rudy finally got a complete release as I have been putting off buying the score in hopes of a Varese deluxe edition.
  4. Williams is such a master at fusing the Golden Age Hollywood sound with his own and making it so thoroughly and effortlessly his own. He is indeed the successor of those early film music giants and as Mangold says it that above tweet, bringing this particular pure symphony orchestra sound to modern audiences. Such a gorgeous theme.
  5. While I haven't seen the show, @Quintus, who is banned at the moment and thus cannot write this himself, asked me to convey a message to you all that he has watched the first episodes of this show and loves it.
  6. OOoh! What is this Golden Age goodness! P.S. There is second part of the recording on the same Twitter account.
  7. Especially when it is based on a very limited amount of Tolkien's actual writings. Pleasing hardcore Tolkien scholars among us would be easier if they actually had based the show extensively on Tolkien's texts and actually honored the author's work and not written mostly fan fiction. This show seems to be mostly very loosely inspired by Tolkien.
  8. Exactly! A decision made even easier by the fact I don't have an Amazon streaming service subscription in the first place.
  9. And the Adventures of Tom Bombadil theory grows stronger. Maybe the showrunners bought rights to that! What can we expect next? Tom Bombadil himself? Mewlips? Princess Mee? Perry-the-Winkle?
  10. Well that is just as awful as the Gandalf speculation on the origin of the Stranger. Man in the Moon!
  11. Masterful! I never realized Gandalf's battle with the balrog had millenia old roots! The Bridge of Khazad-dûm now makes much more sense. It all rhymes! Balrog: You powers are weak old man! I've been waiting for you, Gandalf. We meet again, at last. The circle is now complete. When I left you I was but the learner. Now, *I* am the master. Gandalf: Only the master of evil, balrog! If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can ever imagine (and I'll change colour)! You will not pass!
  12. His love of the halfling leaf will slow his mind obviously. He is too tobacco addled to do anything. I really wish this Stranger character won't be Gandalf but it doesn't look good.
  13. I think it is both. Disregarding Tolkien's writings and offering cloying pandering to the audience and in a way pointing "Hey look at these things that you know! Isn't it nice, comforting and sweet that they are in this series as well. Comforting and you can name them and know they are hobbits or that is Gandalf. Wohoo!". If the showrunners had had guts they would have truly made this a Second Age story without the needless dangling of these identifiable LotR mascots in front of the audience. The world of Elves, Men and Dwarves of the Second Age would have been fascinating in itself and still identifiable as Middle-Earth without dragging hobbits into this tale.
