One ring to rule them all
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy is still the best trilogy of all time for me.
We are now at day seven of this 30-day writing challenge. You can click that link and check out what it is the challenge all about.
Today, we are talking about favorite movie.
I can state facts and awards about the trilogy like 400+ awards out of 800 nominations. That's why it is the most awarded films of all time. The Return of the King is one of the movies that won 11 Oscars. The series won 17 awards altogether. It holds the Guinness record of largest battle sequence of 200,000 characters. Each of those films won awards on their own. The list goes on and on.
This film brought to life the book written by J.R.R. Tolkien.
It is a fantasy but has adventure, drama, romance, horror, mystery, suspense. It has everything it seems of both the human, spiritual and the underworld. It is a saga of friendship, sacrifice, power, greed, and love. It is a journey filled with hope, desire, revenge. It is a struggle between good and evil.
I do like every single character. They are all relatable. They have played their roles well.
The cinematography, production and animation and the soundtrack are all wonderful. I'm listening to the soundtrack while writing this.
I can still remember the feeling of excitement and the roller coaster of emotions as I watched every film of this series. There is that anticipation and longing to watch the next film.
Truly it's one of the best movies of its time or maybe for all time.
The Hobbit is also another trilogy that I equally love but LOTR is my first love.
I have come across this post by CrazyWrites and I thought I'd give it a go.
It's interesting that most questions make you choose between love and money. It guess these are the two factors that measure someone. If I was younger, I would say money which would also be a great help with that amount. I can do a lot with that especially in helping my family and myself. With that amount I can not only help my family but others as well. Now, I may sound cliche but love conquers all. Money is nothing without love. Take note there is a big difference in loving money though. Money comes second to the ones we love. If we love someone, we devote more of our time, energy and effort to them and those are priceless. If you find your true love, then do whatever it takes to keep that one you love.
Reading minds is tiring. Dealing with people is tiring. I have been mentioning that we are bombarded by social media especially opinions and comments from other people and it is stressful. It is toxic and you still want to read minds? Enough already. I would rather that I be able to teleport anywhere peaceful and free from people.
Fire and water are powerful elements. I wish I could control both. We know how destructive these two are. However, both are essential too. The sun is a ball of fire and water is nourishing. Both are equally important. How can you control one if there is a lack of either one? I would like to be able to control water though. The deep is something that I fear and I would like to conquer that.
This is a no brainer: unable to use social media. I guess we all know how toxic social media is. I use search engine a lot for work so I don't want to lose that.
Give up internet for a month. I use the internet for work and to contact people which is pretty useful and convenient. With the internet, we can communicate with almost everyone. There are lots of potential there and it makes our life easier. However, I am willing to give it up. I can still contact others using my phone. I can still find work someplace else that don't require the internet. There is still life out there offline. I can't bear not bathing for a month let along a week!
If I really had to choose I would probably sell one of my organs since I don't have any possessions to sell. What organ? That I don't know. Maybe one of my kidneys.
Recently, I have been eating more meat than vegetables. I would probably choose never to be able to eat meat but there is only a small percentage difference with vegetables. There are alternatives for meat like vegemeat that are said to be from vegetables that are processed to look like meat which I find ironic.
I would like to have a self-driven car since I don't know how to drive. An automated home is nice too but for now, I'll rather go for a car.
Today had been a heavy day, in other words, lazy day. I mentioned that I went out yesterday to check an event by one of the government agencies. Turned out, there was nothing much to see. It's a promotion of coffee and rabbit meat but there was not much of a display. I was hoping to find coffee to purchase for I don't eat rabbit meat. Rabbits have been heavily promoted by the DA as an alternative source of meat and it widely became popular for more and more people are raising rabbits either as pets, business or consumption.
Anyway, it's now late and I just came here to post this before I call it a day.
I hope you have a happy weekend!
