The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power Teaser Trailer

February 14, 2022 Leave a comment

A new legend begins this fall. The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, only on Prime Video Sept 2, 2022. #LOTRonPrime #LOTR #LOTRROP

About “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power”
Amazon Studios’ forthcoming series brings to screens for the very first time the heroic legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-earth’s history. This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and will take viewers back to an era in which great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by the finest of threads, and the greatest villain that ever flowed from Tolkien’s pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness.

Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth. From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains, to the majestic forests of the elf-capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of Númenor, to the furthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone.

In a race for $5 billion, be careful who you trust. Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg star in #UnchartedMovie, Exclusively At Cinemas February 11. Book tickets Monday 31st January.

Street-smart Nathan Drake (Tom Holland) is recruited by seasoned treasure hunter Victor “Sully” Sullivan (Mark Wahlberg) to recover a fortune amassed by Ferdinand Magellan and lost 500 years ago by the House of Moncada. What starts as a heist job for the duo becomes a globe-trotting, white-knuckle race to reach the prize before the ruthless Santiago Moncada (Antonio Banderas), who believes he and his family are the rightful heirs. If Nate and Sully can decipher the clues and solve one of the world’s oldest mysteries, they stand to find $5 billion in treasure and perhaps even Nate’s long-lost brother…but only if they can learn to work together.

Am trecut notele pe Goodreads. Am fost uimit de larghețea cu care se acordă 4, ba chiar 5 stele, de unde și medii de peste 4.5 pentru cărți a căror calitate este mult mai joasă.
Cauzele sunt multiple – de la lipsa de experiență în materie de lecturi (deci repere lipsă sau puține) până la reciprocități, pupincurism sau diverse tipuri de obligații.

Nu intru în detalii, am mai făcut-o și oricum concluzia e aceeași, o repet: nu o să fie bine niciodată, nici pentru autori (și ceilalți), nici pentru cititori. Nu atâta timp cât ambele părți fac compromisuri penibile, mizerabile:

– se dau cărți gratis cu intenția de a obține o notă cât mai mare (uneori nici nu se pune în discuție o apreciere, o notă mai mică decât echivalentul a ***** de pe Goodreads).
Care e câștigul pe termen lung?
– lingușeala cititorului (manifestată în diverse forme) pentru a obține acea carte cu cât mai puțin efort financiar.
De ce ți-ai sacrifica reputația pentru niște bănuți în plus, niște sute de lei pe an?

Nimic nu poate repara pierderea încrederii avută într-un cititor sau autor.

Prevăd următoarele:
– cei mai mulți autori mediocri vor rămâne la fel de mediocri. Din cauza sistemului perpetuat și de ei.
– autorii care pot, știu și își doresc mai mult vor dispărea de pe piața autohtonă, vor abandona. Se vor îndrepta către cititorii de limbă engleză, unde competiția e enorm de dură, dar și răsplata (cu adevărat) satisfăcătoare. La fel și cu o parte din cei care debutează sau au debutat.

An impossible decision awaits. Watch Swan Song December 17 in theaters and streaming on Apple TV+ https://apple.co/_SwanSong

Set in the near future, Swan Song is a powerful, emotional journey told through the eyes of Cameron (Mahershala Ali), a loving husband and father diagnosed with a terminal illness who is presented with an alternative solution by his doctor (Glenn Close) to shield his family from grief. As Cam grapples with whether or not to alter his family’s fate, he learns more about life and love than he ever imagined. Swan Song explores how far we will go, and how much we’re willing to sacrifice, to make a happier life for the people we love.

This Apple Original Film stars two-time Academy Award winner Mahershala Ali, Academy Award nominee Naomie Harris and eight-time Academy Award nominee Glenn Close. The film also features Golden Globe winner Awkwafina and Golden Globe nominee Adam Beach. Swan Song is written and directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Benjamin Cleary and produced by Adam Shulman, Jacob Perlin, Jonathan King, Rebecca Bourke, Mahershala Ali and Mimi Valdés.
