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.

The books have a certain atmospheric charm. The movies have good acting for the most part but suffer from commercialization, they have been 'biggerized'.
Tolkien, the author of LotR wrote it as a sort of alternate mythology for Britain so of course it's mostly white people, other sorts of people being kind of thin on the ground in prehistoric Britain.
If I went to see a movie about ancient mythological Africa I don't think I'd expect to see a lot of white people and would not be disappointed by their absence.3
