There have been a lot of conflicting reviews for the Rings of Power so I’m here to give you a completely unbiased review from a person that knows around 10 things total about Lord of the Rings(and most of those are just names). I know this is one of those shows where a bunch of people just keep shitting on it but I truly don’t know what’s their problem with it. I thought the special effects and cgi was great, the sets and costumes were beautiful( especially the weapons and armor oooh do I love me a cool ass dagger and some cool ass armor), and of course my favorite part was the characters.
The duos of Elrond and Durin and Nori and Poppy were to die for! I love me some undying friendships. Now is the part I talk about some spoilers, so sorry in advance. I first have to mention that I waited to watch the show till after all the episodes came out so I had things spoiled for me by Twitter by accident. Specifically that Halbrand is the one and only Sauron. And I’m actually kind of happy that I had that spoiled for me because I was able to skip the feelings of betrayal and immediately switch to the “you be your bad bitch self Halbrand”, “no one’s a better Dark Lord than you”, and of course “aww there goes my little evil boy growing up and creating his own evil empire”. I just really enjoyed the show and can’t wait to see more(especially more of the dwarves and my favorite Halbrand/Sauron) and so I’d give it an 8 out of 10.
