The 69th #bestpicture#oscars#academyaward winner in #1997 was the #gonewiththewind of our times. It's... sigh... a #romantic#epic
I don't really need to explain it's #titanic directed by #jamescameron and starring #katewinslet and #leonardodicaprio as well as #billyzane#kathybates#billpaxton and more
This film holds the record for most overall wins along with #benhur and #lordoftherings#thereturnoftheking with 11 Oscar wins.
I'd argue it deserves most of them. Look is the story holding up super well? No. Production wise it's quite fascinsting. Sure some of the cgi has aged worse than other cgi parts (ship looks good, people don't look good) but it's really ahead of its time.
Yeah a lot of the story elements aren't the greatest (sure let's blame the crew for staring at Jack and rose dancing for not seeing the iceberg before) but this film honestly isn't the worst. It has a reputation for either being this absolute classic or for being the worst and most overrated film. I'm in the middle again. It's good but not THAT good. I get that it uses a historical setting to emphasize the love these two fictional strangers of different classes had, and in ways it works.
Don't worry. I'm not ripping this one nearly as badly as #braveheart or #theenglishpatient but I'm not glowing either.
I’ve truly fallen off my Instagram game this February, but it hasn’t been for lack of reading. I’m navigating my way through the Lord of the Rings trilogy this month - it’s been sitting on the top of my “how have I not read this yet?!” list forever.
As a guy who has watched the movie trilogy countless times, I have to say the first thing that stood out to me in retrospect was the dedication to the source material. Having now finished 2 of the 3 books, it’s clear Peter Jackson had a clear story to tell straight from Tolkien and didn’t need to diverge much at all for the movies (I know, I know, Bombadillites). This makes for a familiar journey with a few fresh details as I’m reading for the first time.
I’m wrapping up the Return of the King now, and it’s going to be a bummer for me when it’s finished. Have you ready LOTR or the Hobbit before? Thoughts?
Esta vez solo la espina quedó medio usado ya pero las dos caras del libro todavía se ven como nuevas. Yo creo que es la china la que me daña los libros cuando se los presto. 🤔 jajaja Bueno, ahora sí a empezar el último libro. #lotr#thelordoftherings#thereturnoftheking#jrrtolkien
I learned a few Uruk Hai how to do metal vocals @wetaworkshop in Wellington🎙️😉 Have a few open vocal coaching spots for March/April in Maastricht. Get yours before I go on tour with @spoilengine again! 🤘 Bookings: firstname.lastname@example.org
As many of you know Lord of the Rings is the book series that got me into reading.
It will go down in history as one of the best books made into the best movies of all time.
Yes things were left out or slightly changed but it’s still a masterpiece.
The Return of the King will go down as the movie with the most nominations and wins in one night.
I remember watching and screaming at the tv.
I went to my first midnight movie for The Return of the King, we had never had a movie theater do that before that night.
It was mayhem, they sold too many tickets then they had seats and people were sitting on the floor in cosplay!
So naturally when I saw that @inkandwonder.designs had not only the gorgeous bookmark, but also the matching KEYCHAIN?!
I had to preorder it, and the fact that it’s handmade is stunning.
The bookmark is wood but then and the art and color is soooo breathtaking, every time I get stuck looking at it I find something new.
This is my first but definitely not my last order from this amazing shop.
I don’t care how much or how long the shipping takes, it’s worth it.
Thank you so much for having such an unbelievable shop!
QOTP.....whats a series or fandom that started everything for you??????????????????
Sons of Gondor! Of Rohan! My brothers.
I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of Men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day.
An hour of wolves and shattered shields when the Age of Men comes crashing down, but it is not this day!
This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good earth, I bid you stand, Men of the West!
