  • There's a rather interesting "unpublished" retelling of the Lord of the Rings from the perspective of a Mordorian scout. Basic idea is that most of the story is elven propaganda and they have been engaged in a centuries long campaign of attempted genocide of Mordor. In this version of the story, the Ring's power is that people think the ring has real power, magic is not actually that amazing compared to the industrialized technology of Mordor, and orcs just looks like regular people. Check out The Last Ringbearer. It's neat.

  • So the Soviet LOTR version was made within 10 years of Peter Jackson's: Fellowship of the Ring. Looks more like they are made 50 years apart.

  • I know Stephen is looking for content but John Batiste or however is name is spelled. I get so annoyed every time with him. He is not interesting. This isn't a race thing. The dude is fucking boring. Every time I watch a video with him I feel like I wasted two minutes of my life cuz he adds nothing substantiation to the conversation. Can we please remove him from being a talking point I regularly have to skip over?
