I don’t want to go on about sexism in the Hobbit but every single person in the tapestry looks like a warrior, even Bilbo is holding a sword. Except Tauriel who is sitting down for some reason and Galadriel, aka the most powerful person in Middle Earth, is literally lying on the floor

It just annoys me how the only two female characters are both being portrayed as weak when every other character looks like a soldier

Yes hello I have a Maglor + harsh/non-gentle ocean imagery problem.

If there is ever going to be a Silmarillion animated series, I want it to end with dark waves crushing against even darker, barren cliffs, the sky growing heavy, spurts of foam and water mixing with the rain.

Maglor’s voice surpassing even the roar of the sea and singing the first, powerful notes of the Ñoldolantë.

"I think Natalie Portman said something brilliant about modern-day female action heroes, about how even though they’re strong you need to also see the messiness of everyday life, that complexity. Even with Peggy Carter … Can we see her have a really shit day, put her pyjamas on and eat loads of ice cream and weep into chick flick? Can we have her be neurotic, hysterical, funny, depressed and all those things that we all relate to that aren’t regularly depicted because they’re not seen as sexy or comfortable for men to watch and masturbate over."
