9 out of 10



Why is The Lord of The Rings such a smashing success, well that would not be just an absurd, preposterous question, if this space had a following, viewrers etc, such a thing would have casued a commotion, backlash, and more, as it is, it is so refreshing to know that whatever floats through the mind, it can be placed  here with impunity...as long as i do not venture into some dingbat, outre territory tat could be clinically diagnosed


When the film came out, in the early part of this century, we were living in Rosenau, in the center part of this realm, near the city of Brasov, but right on the edge of an astounding forest, with one of the best views you could get anywhere, and isolated like that (well, more or less, eventually, the neighbors would drive me out, with their eternal pe la spate, asa vor fetele toate’, the manele they listened to all day, everyday) i took down to Bucharest about five thousand dollars and bought the screen which is...right in front of me now, as it is used in connection with the pc...back then, the 108 cenetimeters of diagonal were ultra expensive, on a plasm tv

One of the best films we could watch on this acquistion was The Lord of The Rings and i must say that the knights riding on horses, through the forests, the castles, scenery, nature were outstading, surreal for someone that had lived under communsim, had to watch films ‚under cover’, in places weher people would charge like at the cinema, but we had to sit in rows of chairs, all looking at a screen that was a fraction of the common telvision in Europe or America these days...in the Ceasusescu days, the official broadcast was two hours per day, which would show you what the tyrant has done during the day, how the masses had chereed him on, on camera, in their minds they had killed him mutliple times, and they would in reality, on Christams in 1989, after the Revoultion in which i took part, as i would insist and repeat at the end of this note...lately, i have a standard end, to try and promote the ‚unique thing’ i do, and leave for posterity the most important act of my life, helping bring Ceausescu down


The Lord of the Rings was thus a fabulous viewing experince – or was it this new, otherwordly television, which was so god damn wide and modern, incredibly costly too, but the way it was decided is this: first of all, we were in ‚the wild’, and thus away from culture, so we could do with something that would bring home entertainemnt, we could buy pirated discs from Brasov, The Lord of The Rings was on such material, and then compenasate for the factt hat we had to live Far From The Madding Crowd http://realini.blogspot.com/2014/09/far-from-madding-crowd-by-thomas-hardy.html was crucial

Now however, when the film is back in the program – such as on HBO the other day – it fails to awe me, no matter how much i admire Viggo Mortensen, Liv Taylor, Hugo Weaving http://realini.blogspot.com/2017/08/note-on-adventures-of-priscilla-queen.html and many others in the cast...


There is the case of Ian McKellen, who is obviously one of the iconic figures of theater and cinema, and yet, somehow he strikes me as pretentious, emphatic, the short of it would be that i do not much care for some of the movies he is in, and given that he is towering over The Lord of The Rings, well, there you go

Then what about those hideous creatures – not Hideous Kinky http://realini.blogspot.com/2020/06/hideous-kinky-by-esther-freud-10-out-of.html which is incidentally the title of a phenomnal novel by Esther Freud (Iliked it so much, it is now inscribed on a shirt i wear, and you can see if you watch my youtube channel) the daughter of Lucein Freud, the painetr, and gradaughter of Sigmund Freud, you know who the latter was, however less respected he is today in psychology, where his interpretations and the vision is no longer popular, he was anyway a legendary thinker, and his influcne cannot be denied, in spite of the absurd insistence on castration fear, Oedipus complex, an more


Kingsley Amis has written about Tolkein in his Memoirs http://realini.blogspot.com/2022/12/memoirs-by-kingsley-amis-author-of-take.html and i understand that Tolkien was a substandard professor at universtiy, although he is now one of the most adnired authors, or is it just the films that audiences vote for...The Lord of The Rings is on an incredible sevenths place

CS Lewis on the other hand was a superb professor http://realini.blogspot.com/2015/02/mere-christianity-by-c-s-lewis.html and he is the author of a number of books that have shaken my dibelief in god, if CS Lewis has had that intense, ferevent faith, then why should i reject the dogmas, just becasue they seem silly


Louis CK and other comedians have provided plenty of ammunistion...in one of his latest shows (maybe the most recent, filmed after he had been banned, or went into retimrent temporarily, becaseu of the exposure, the news that he had been vicious with women, not to the extent of Weinstein, for then he would have his cat in confinment, and then resurfaced, more outrageous than everm, or maybe just the same) CK reads from...The Holy book, the passage about the fig tree, which had not given Jesus figs, when the Son of God wanted them, and becaseu of this failure, due to the season, or off season, the tree is...cursed, imagine that, coming from no other than Jesus Christ Superstar...

So to conlcude, assuming you disregard what maybe hundreds of millions of people say, and take my advice, The Lord of The Rings is not the divine opus that is advertised, or at least not if you look at it again, from this angle, here...

Now for a question, and invitation – maybe you have a good idea on how we could make more than a million dollars with this http://realini.blogspot.com/2022/02/unique-in-world.html?q=unique+in+the+world   – as it is, this is a unique technique, which we could promote, sell, open the Oscars show with or something and then make lots of money together, if you have the how, I have the product, I just do not know how to get the befits from it, other than the exercise per se


As for my role in the Revolution that killed Ceausescu, a smaller Mao, there it is http://realini.blogspot.com/2022/03/realini-in-newsweek-participant-in.html
