I mean everyone in those movies are white people which makes the series seem too culturally centered on white people. And they talk in like a super weird old way that doesn't even remotely relate to the modern world. And even the action and killing isn't as cool as like kung fu movies or superhero movies or anything more modern.
i just find the series boring. And then there are themes that have a slight veneer of addiction and stuff that aren't that interesting to me.
i'm just curious if i'm the only one that feels that way.
I've never seen any Lord Of The Rings movies. Same deal with Harry Potter. I prefer movies or TV shows based in reality and not set in fantasy worlds. I do like Game Of Thrones, but I don't think I'm as gung-ho about it as many are, for the same reason, it's all fictional stuff with dragons and supernatural shit, but it's well-done at least.
Haradrim and the orcs is the closes thing that you can get to non-whites in lotr, but this is one of the things that makes lotr so great, and also the world of middle earth is inspired by medieval Europe, and there was almost no non-whites in Europe at this era. Lotr is related to the modern world more then you think, the forces of evil in lotr are very similar to islamists, and have almost the same goals, and as for swords and bows, they simple more classic and honorable then guns and bombs. Lotr is not about superhuman feats, even Gandalf is using his swords far more then his magic, and that is one of the things that make lotr more realistic then many kung fu and superheros fantasies. The closest thing that lotr have to an superhero is legolas. Lotr is not all about fighting, it's also abut the atmosphere, and if you don't like it then too bad. Lotr is more like game of thrones without all the unnecessary porn.
Middle Earth is based off of medieval Europe, their culture, and their myths and legends dude. Of course they're friggin white. And of course it seems centered on European culture. That's because it's BASED off of it😱 I can see you just not liking it, but don't not like it for stupid reasons.
Your complaints are generally applicable to the fantasy genre overall, and it is there that I believe the true issue lies. You just don't care for the genre. Personally, I enjoyed Lord of the Rings greatly (I haven't seen the movies, mind), but can definitely see where it would not appeal to some, being very lore-heavy and unevenly paced with a tendency towards slowness.
