too similar too LOTR [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm not surprised this work would be seen as too similar to LOTR. The soundtrack has most of it's themes repeated in LOTR with very minor changes, if at all (Lothlorien..), even I as a fan would probably not vote for it in favor of new scores. This has already won so many awards. And of course the main thing is, when FOTR came out, and got so many nominations, it was because critics did not know what to do, subsequently they decided to steal awards from FOTR and TTT and reward ROTK for all 3 movies at once. This time they know, so they won't nominate the first two movies, and will throw all in on the final movie, just like with TTT. After all it's also one movie, split in 3 parts, seeing each part on it's own will make little sense. You need the whole picture to be able to decide if the entire thing is award worthy.

And it's all political anyway, everyone knows that, and has little to do with how good a movie is.

"The past tempts us, the present confuses us, and the future frightens us. And our lives slip away, moment by moment, lost in that terrible in-between."
