    Likewise. Cautiously. My excitement for this series has been diluted by Amazon’s handling of The Wheel of Time; I dearly hope we get from the studio something that holds a little more reverence for the source material this time around.

    there isn't a "rolls-eye" or "make wank motion with hand" button.

    I doubt this will be fucked up.

    I'm personally STILL just bummed that it isn't Dark Tower.

    Oh no... Go back to the hands!

    Edit: Taking a closer look, the negatives certainly outweigh the positives here so far, but something just feels off and very CW territory.

    definitely this but with a budget that rivals summer blockbusters. there's money being spent on this, I just don't think the money people are very good at managing where it goes.

    That is what makes me so perplexed about it all. Everything just looks so flashy, but who knows... Maybe it will live up to that budget and give us something good, but my feelings are really mixed now. Need a trailer!

    why is almost every comment on the video in Russian? That's weird, right?

    Also I'm getting tired of the color correction / lighting being used lately where everything seems to be bigger than life. It makes every scene look like it's surrounded by CGI instead of in the world. Mainly I'm talking about that shot of the kid at the beginning. They may as well be on a full green-screen set because nothing is natural about it.

    LOL, also Polish, and they are all exactly the same. Rather weird target for bot farm attack, no?
    edit: same phrase in many languages, but yeah Russian is prevailing.

    We watched it last night and my wife's first comment was that there were "a lot of CGI-looking characters," which is weird since they're all normal-looking human characters. Can't say this teaser made me excited, but I'm not writing it off just yet, either.

    Nothing about it feels Middle-earth yet, or even Tolkien for that matter. It comes off as very empty and looks like every other fantasy movie/series that has been released over the last 5 years.

    Ugh... Please prove me wrong.

    “The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim” — the original anime feature from New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Animation — is set for release on April 12, 2024 from Warner Bros. Pictures, Variety can report exclusively.


    Set roughly two centuries before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings,” “The War of the Rohirrim” will explore the exploits of Helm Hammerhand, the King of Rohan, and the creation of Helm’s Deep, the stronghold featured in Peter Jackson’s “The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.”

    I'll wait until the stuff comes out to judge it. I'm optimistic about the show despite the internet generally tearing it to shreds.

    As far as the animated flick goes...I'm not historically a big anime fan, but this is a cool enough concept that I'll check it out.

    How does it look so stunning and so much like an average, modern TV show at the same time?

    4k cameras are the bane of television today, it's like a 120hz mode that you can't turn off. On top of that you have the omnipresent usage of blue/green screens where you're filming and inserting everything in post so then the light looks unnatural.

    The LOTR Trilogy was very organic/natural looking and felt. This feels like I'm watching live action on the backdrop of an open world video game.

    There is just something off about the entire thing like many were saying when the teaser first dropped. It shows glimpses of something I can attach to, but then it throws 4 more wrenches in the spokes, making me second guess everything I just previously thought was good to see.

    I think you may be thinking of high dynamic range. Which has the affect of appearing to drain an image of color despite actually infusing it with more, since the bulk of the color now comes from the spaces between black and white. I don't think the frame rates or the resolution create that issue.

    I thought this looked very nice. It does stand out to me for some reason and that might be by virtue of leaning away from grim and gritty and instead into kind of a Shakespearean high fantasy thing. I generally don't like the way the Peter Jackson movies looks, especially the originals, so I'm enjoying what I'm seeing so far. I hope the story shakes out alright. I suspect the sort of vague fantasy vibes of it, without us really understanding the story or the characters, lends itself to the averageness the trailer yields.
