    This is happening and will be active 2023 in a German „State“.

    Why the other person trying to protect it or claims it only apply for comments against the law idk.

    The bottom line and the truth

    I could report you just by saying

    I dont like black elves in rings of power

    Such case would be

    Analysed
    Archived
    And who knows what else

    It has nothing to do with checking if a „opinion“ or a „sentence“ can be persecuted.

    That’s the job of the police and the prosecutors.
    Wait wtf is wrong with dark skin elves? There's man tribes, race, whatever they call them in LOTR of elves. AFAIK nothing says elves can't have dark skin, there just hasn't been any mention of it. Not like the lore is closed and liberties can be made, Peter Jackson had creative liberties...quite a bit.


    Really curious why that matters and so offensive to you.

    He wrote a 1/10 review on IMDB saying Tolkien doesn't like dark skin and it got removed.

    I think the issue is that they inserted dark skin elves in a people which is not known for its dark skin. In a setting known for its quite isolationist population.

    Why does being isolationist matter? There's many kinds of elves. How do we know none of them had dark skin?

    Well there was the War of Wrath where all the free peoples were summoned to fight Morgoth, then Beleriand was destroyed so there'd be subsequent migrations of displaced people, the Noldor had been mingling with Sindarin Elves since the First Age and of course Arondir is a soldier posted far from home so there has not been a lot of isolationism in his life. Not that it matters though, I dont think his skin colour signifies much more than the colour of his skin. Possibly a rarity (like red-headed elf children) but not important.

    So IMDB deletes every single written review below a 6 and you think it was because every single one of those were racist reviews? Interesting, tell me more about that !

    Can tell they spent all their money on sets, costumes and vfx, I love the show but wish the pacing was better, there's some weird filler and bad acting here and there but which TVseries doesn't have that these days...
    If you knew the candle was fire then the meal was cooked a long time ago.

    Because isolationist population tend to be of the same skin color, if they were not mixed beforehand

The costumes feel very off to me, the visuals lack the tangibility of real scenes that they had back then, and lord the elf ears are bad.
    They also try very hard to be profound but it becomes pretty obvious that the writers have zero life experience nor the linguistic fortitude that Tolkien had to ever create profound dialogue. The writing overall is very stilted and so the acting suffers because of it. Sure, the CGI is nice, but that is the only thing it has going for it. The costumes look mediocre and the armor looks fake as hell. Makes me wonder where all the money in the budget went if it didn't go to paying off critics for positive reviews of mediocrity.

    I utterly disrespect forced diversity or indoctrination.

    Amazon is pushing a ideology.

    Amazon Inclusion Policy

    Quote

    Higher roles on productions like directors, writers, and producers under Amazon Studios will need to meet a minimum of 30 percent of women and people within a marginalized racial or ethnic group. That number will rise to 50 percent by 2024. Casting an actor must match the identity of the character they will be playing.

    You hire now by race,ethnic group, and sexual identity.

    Amazon is also deciding now wich Review is good or bad faith

    Bet their Review Team has also a quota of

    90% 10/10(supporting ideology)
    5% 2-9/10(doesn’t care or mention ideology)
    5% 1/10 (against their ideology)

    Imagine giving a shit about reviews from people who are paid to give their opinion. There's zero incentive for them to be truthful.

    The intro dialogue with the rock and the boat and what's up and down... oh boy.

    If you really need someone's opinion to know if a show/movie will appeal to you do this:

    1) Find someone who likes the things you normally like. If they have good things to say about something you think is going to suck, give it a try.

    2) Find someone else who will normally praise things you dislike. If they sound unsure or worse about something, avoid it.



    Hearing the EFAP crew say they are cautiously optimistic about House of the Dragon? I'm giving it a shot even though I thought it was going to suck.

    Hearing Grace Randolph say Rings of Power sucked. That sure says a lot after the check they no doubt gave her.

    It has to be a Maiar. And if not him, then it has to be a new character, as it can't be anyone from the books.

    Its a made up universe where dark skin elves are not excluded, they just never came up in the lore. No such thing as "forced diversity" in that since, that statement is illogical. And if it really bothers you, just pretend the lore show and movies exist in a universe parallel to the books - since the movies aren't 1:1 adaptions anyway.


    Literally trying prove a point that doesn't exist. Not touching the stuff beyond the scope of the show, not sure why any of that applies to Middle-Earth.

    That isn't true, the policy you are quoting specifies that the first thing to consider is skill set.
