Will it be gritty? Can't Post

What do you think?

Gritty as LOTR or The Hobbit?

I hope they film the series as the LOTR movies, with the same Color tint and amazing CGI that is only used when neccesary.

" Why, O people of Noldor! Fëanor cried. Why should we longer serve the jealous Valar, who cannot keep us nor even their own realm secure from their enemy? And though he be now their foe, are not they and he of one kin? Vengence calls me hence, but even were it otherwise I would not dwell longer in the same land with the kin of my father's slayer and of the thief of treasure. Yet i am not the only valiant in this valiant people. And have ye not all lost your King? And what else have ye not lost, cooped here in a narrow land between the mountains and the sea? Here once was light, that the Valar begrudged to middle-earth, but now dark levels all. Shall we mourn here deedless forever, a shadow-folk, mist-haunting, dropping vain tears in the thankless sea? Or shall we return to our home? In cuiviènen sweet ran the waters under uncloaded stars, and wide lands lay about, where a free people might walk. There they lie still and await us who in out folly forsook them. Come away! Let the cowards keep this city!"

Yes [In reply to] Can't Post

I wouldn't be expecting the stylized color grading to feature too heavily, though. Contemporary cinematographers aren't as keen for it.

It also sometimes did a disservice to the films, I thought: Parts of both The Fellowship of the Ring and The Battle of the Five Armies (no doubt to provide a smooth transition to the former) look a bit too soft, to me; as if the movie was filmed unto parchment instead of film-stock, is how I like to call it.

Major television productions tend to be shot digitally, so in terms of picture quality, I'd expect something more along the lines of An Unexpected Journey. Doesn't mean it can't be gritty, of course. Apocalypto was shot digitally, and that's as gritty as it gets.
