    The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power TV Series 2022

    Article written October 10, 2022 18 :29


    • in the rubric “Film reviews”
    • 9The second Epo ha Middle-earth.

      The great enemy Morgoth is defeated. However, evil has not left the world. His personification was the devoted servant of Bauglir, the insidious sorcerer Sauron. And one of the main opponents of Darkness is the elven warrior Galadriel. Convinced that Sauron – seemingly lost forever – only hid for a while, and is waiting in the wings.

      And it looks like her confidence is getting more and more grounded.

      After Jackson’s full-length adaptations of VK and The Hobbit, which, in addition to pleasant moments, had enough controversial moments, expectations from the Amazonian series were contradictory. Unfortunately, not in vain.

      The only aspect of the “Rings” to which there is not the slightest complaint is the picture.

      The light of the trees of Valinor. Severe mountains covered with snow, covered with ice. Mysterious caves.

      Spacious steppes cut by ravines, full of life in all its manifestations. Mokhnonogo – primitive nomadic gatherers. Pompous Golden Lindon with forested coastal cliffs, graceful arracks, waterfalls, figures of the dead carved on memorial trees (“the likeness of the fallen, enclosed in a living being”). Exquisite fireworks above the surface of the water, casting soft reflections on faces and trunks, exquisitely in harmony with the flickering lamps. Detailed peasant settlements in the Southern lands, against the background of nearby gloomy rocks, with houses made of stone and wood. Far elven outposts. Pathetic sailing to the West. Eregion crowned with towers like a porcupine with quills. Shrouded in water, Khazad-dum is the great labyrinths and galleries of Moria, full of water currents, bridges and bridges, lifts, columns, mechanisms, lenses, other beauties and … sunlight. Encumbered with giant statues, Numenor with its capital built up to the very tops of the rocks and the hall of knowledge created by Elros. Hobbit migration, openly showing a variety of natural delights: from swamps to forests.

      Nature is amazing (New Zealand is amazing!) both real and imagined. The beauties of the series are unevenly distributed, but in almost every episode the directors try to throw at least one eye-pleasing area to the viewer.

      Beautifully done transition from the world map to real landscapes, showing the extent of Middle-earth and the variety of locations involved.

      I repeat, the series’ visuals are beyond praise.

      But the filling is not.

    The 13th Warrior, 1999

    9 0034 “And again the kisses of the Valkyries baked on the lips”, or “Hurry towards death until another takes your place”

    Ahmad ibn Fadlan ibn al-Abbas ibn Rashid al-Baghdadi was not going to leave his native Baghdad. However, man proposes, Allah disposes.

    And now he is an ambassador to distant barbarian lands. And then a member of the expedition of King Bulveif, who went to help King Hrothgar, whose lands are besieged by unknown creatures that cannot be named.

    One of the most atmospheric tapes dedicated to the ancient Scandinavians. A story shown through the eyes of a person infinitely far from this culture. Weakly showed itself at the box office (with an incredibly inflated budget, the directors obviously got excited), but memorable from the first time and pulled into quotes.

    The film is based on three sources: Michael Crichton’s novel (the author of Jurassic Park in particular) Eaters of the Dead, The Note by a real traveler of the 10th century ibn Fadlan about a trip to Volga Bulgaria, the epic Beowulf.

    Almost from the first frame we find ourselves immersed in the life and relationships of the great and terrible Vikings. People with their appearance scaring away reckless robbers – “Tatars”. Drinking like crazy, responding to an insult with a sword strike right at the feast, constantly neighing like horses – and you don’t know how this laughter will end – with an ax on the skull, an outstretched horn with honey, blood feud or a friendly hug. A dozen fighters capable of dealing with any threat. Fearless and cheerful fatalistic philosophers who know that they are expected in Valhalla, at any moment ready to both kill and die. Pleasing the refined Arab with the customs of joint washing and other contempt for hygiene. Accepting a stranger not by his race or color, but by his deeds.

    Skins, disheveled manes of hair, clothes, drinking horns, huge swords of the Normans. The boundless expanses of the northern lands, almost not knowing the feet of a person. Soul-searing landscapes, bays, mountains, forests shrouded in deadly fog. The settlements of Hrothgar’s subjects are wooden huts buried in mud, dirty, frightened peasants, and a smoky throne room.

    Villains with their bear and human skulls, painted bodies and unreasoning cruelty.

    Stupidly atmospheric, gloomy journey into the past with its harsh, cruel, unsophisticated customs, unpolluted nature and relics of very ancient eras.

    The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe), 2005

    Article written on September 23, 2022 2:43 pm


    • in the Film Reviews category
    • in the imra column

    Fairyland, with a cocktail of mono and polytheism, or Four against Winter (without Kai) world war. Four children of the Pevensie family, like thousands of other underage, are sent from London, which is raining Nazi bombs, to a quiet province. In the big mansion of a strict professor.

    There, the youngest of them, Lucy, finds a huge wardrobe during the games. And in it is the door to the magical land of Narnia.

    Where the ruthless White Witch reigns, bringing here a long, long winter.

    But there is a prophecy according to which the four sons of Adam and Eve will mark the coming of change and the fall of the Sorceress.

    Classic children’s fantasy.

    Before us are four characters, each of which has its own ideological layer, being responsible for a certain side of the young man’s personality.

    Peter is the older brother, the personification of care and responsibility. Since the father is at war, it is on him to look after the younger ones. The boy makes mistakes, allows himself harshness in relation to his brother, suffers from doubts about the strength and ability to play the role of dad, worries about the baby. The clear leader of the family.

    Susan is the next in seniority, an apologist for logic. Moreover, when she acts “logically”, lousy suggestions pour out of her (like drop the sword), and all sorts of other crap, somehow suggestions will return home, leaving the Narnians to deal with everything on their own. The most poorly developed member of the Pevensie family.

    Edmund is a middle child in every sense. Including others in relation to him. Peter kicks him, tries to “build” him, makes him grow up. Susan bathes in female coldness. Is that Lucy does not require anything from her brother. Selfish, dived into adolescence. Avid for flattery and sweets. Not very smart. Causing direct associations with Kai. The most tragic character No wonder he was nicknamed the Righteous. After all, only a person who has known and carried out betrayal (and more than once) is able to understand and forgive the most lousy human qualities. Also pay attention to the scene with the photo. The boy unconsciously protects his father, risking his life, saves his photo from under the bombs. Quite a magical act.

    Lucy is the youngest. The sun is completely open to the world. Healing beginning, full of love, mercy, kindness. Opening the door to Narnia, accepting this world from the first minute.

    Each of the four will go through a lot of personality-forming adventures, grow above himself, show the young reader/viewer what to do in difficult circumstances. Denotes the benefits of good deeds. It will point to the importance of family and loved ones, remind you that for the sake of your own blood, it is sometimes worth sacrificing a lot.

    Gaining consciousness, or the Robot that reminded people of humanity

    As a result of a chain of accidents that began with a lightning strike, one of the combat robots of the Nova company – Number Five, ends up in the house of a charming girl Stephanie.

    To fill in the gaps caused by the short circuit, he absorbs information greedily, grasping the idea of ​​death and becoming more than a killing machine.

    The company’s management has no intention of leaving its valuable asset, armed with a laser gun, to roam free. Therefore, a real hunt opens up for Number Five.

    And only Stephanie and the scientist Newton, the creator of artificial intelligence, can help the robot avoid “disassembly”.

    One of the first films about AI that reached the Soviet Union, and had a stunning effect here.

    Sweet, positive, optimistic, as if on purpose dives with the “Terminator” released a couple of years ago. Short Circuit claims that not all AIs are “equally pernicious.” It all depends on who will be their creator and who opens the world around them.

    If the creator of the robot is a good, intelligent person, can’t stand war, is passionate about his work, then as soon as the opportunity arises, the imprint of his personality will appear in the creation.

    If the first person with whom the AI ​​communicates is a kind, sincere girl who values ​​life, sincerely cares about our smaller brothers, ready to share love, forgive the shortcomings of growing up. Then it would not occur to artificial intelligence to try to exterminate humanity or individual homo sapiens.

    Watching the right kind of films about brave, noble people (westerns are great) will help you develop an attitude towards life. And get a sense of humor.

    If we have before us a scientist, even more like a businessman, then sooner or later his nature as a researcher will manifest itself. At least in depriving the villain of the opportunity to harm further.

    And if a person is a fool or a beast, it cannot be cured.

    Well, what can you say?

    Around 1815

    Thomas Lawrence (1769–1830) was the last
    eminent English portrait painter
    late XVIII

    first half of XIX
    He worked mainly in the genre
    front portrait. The artist depicted
    representatives of the English
    royal house, aristocrats,
    writers, actors and fellow artists,
    masterfully grasping external features
    their heroes and giving them an aristocratic
    gloss, In 1820 he headed the Royal
    academy of arts.



    Poet and artist
    William Blake stands alone in history
    English art. He was
    self-taught genius – a great dreamer
    and a philosopher. “You are a man, God – no more,
    than you, learn to worship your
    humanity,” the poet wrote in one of
    their books.

    Blake was born in
    London in the family of a poor merchant
    haberdashery goods. In the early
    as a child, he began to write poetry, draw
    and at the age of fourteen he was already working in
    engraving workshop.

    In 1779 Blake
    started independent
    creativity, trying to exhibit in
    Royal Academy of Arts. Through
    ten years he published a collection of poems
    “Songs of Ignorance” (1789). thin
    the notebook was assembled from sheets, entirely
    engraved by the author. He didn’t have
    funds for the printed edition of their
    poems, and the master turned to the medieval
    printing method: cut out on metal
    plate at the same time poetic
    text and
    Blake invented a new technique – convex
    engraving on copper, in which the paint
    applied not into scratched recesses,
    and on convex areas. Thanks to his
    invention, the artist achieved plastic,
    elastic and refined line drawing,
    in tune with the musical rhythm

    On a sheet with
    the poem “Joy-Child” is depicted
    elegant flower framing the text, in
    a woman sits in a calyx with a flower
    a child on her knees, to whom she leans
    angel. Wonderful and happy world
    described in verse, fully
    corresponds to light and thin graphic

    In five years
    Blake published a collection of poems “Songs
    knowledge “(1794) about the terrible world of the slums,
    hard life of factory workers and
    their children. The illustrations for it represent
    a sharp, contrasting image,
    in which there is no air and space,
    and the world is closed and dark. Such is the small
    chimney sweep from the poem of the same name,
    unfortunate hostage of a huge
    pitiless city.

    blake empathetically
    responded to social injustice.
    He believed that technological progress
    will only worsen the condition of the workers, and
    fought against the spread
    machines in factories. “It’s better to warn
    poverty, he said, than to save from
    her. Better to avoid misunderstandings
    than forgive crimes.

    Blake never
    worked in oils despite being popular
    this technique in the XIX
    c., preferring
    tempera and watercolor. He painted pictures
    to scenes from the Bible (for example, “Dream
    James, 1800-1805), from the writings
    English poets William Shakespeare and
    John Milton, choosing unconventional
    for image episodes and images. Painting
    “Pity” (about 1795 g.), created by
    inspired by Shakespeare’s Macbeth,
    – a visual illustration of the words of the play:

    And pity, as if


    Drawn by the whirlwind,
    or cherub

    On the horses


    At the end of Blake’s life
    received from his friend the watercolor painter
    John Linnel commissioned illustration
    to the biblical Book of Job, as well as to
    “Divine Comedy” by Dante Alighieri.

    For clearance
    “Divine Comedy” Blake made
    over 100 watercolor drawings
    a few test prints. The artist is not
    recognized works from nature, preferring
    her endless possibilities of fantasy
    and creative imagination. In his
    illustrations, everything moves and changes,
    people are incorporeal and look like shadows,
    space is twisted into a funnel,
    rises in a wave and overthrows in a stream,
    as, for example, in the engraving “Paolo and
    Francesca” (“Whirlwind of lovers”, 1824-1827
    gg. ).

    Blake died in full
    poverty and was buried in a common grave.
    The discovery of his work happened
    in the middle of XIX
    century, and in the XX
    received general recognition. IN

    A bust of William Blake was erected.

    Blake’s style for
    European Art XIX
    V. unique.
    It combines archaic features,
    indicating a lack of
    special education artist, c
    creative imagination, compositional
    ingenuity and clear desire
    to generalized symbolic images.
    “My heart is full of future,” said
    he, anticipating that his life will go on
    in poetry, drawings and engravings.



    John Constable
    born and raised in the village of East Bergholt,
    located in picturesque Dedham
    valley in the southeast of England. whole
    he spent his days on his own
    to his father the mill, which stood on
    River Stour, and in his free time he painted.

    In 1795 Constable
    made the first attempt to become a professional
    artist: went to London, worked
    in the engraving workshop, but no success
    has reached. He returned home and
    four years again went to the capital.
    Luck smiled on the young man
    Constable went to school at
    Royal Academy of Arts. IN
    1802 was first exhibited at the academy
    his work, titled “Landscape”.

    Living permanently in
    London, Constable came every summer
    to his native places and worked a lot from nature.
    He was the first painter of the XIX
    in., in
    whose work the etude is no less important,
    than a finished painting in the studio.
    The constable painted in oils small
    sketches, which showed friends
    place for him since childhood.

    The artist created
    a series of views of the river Stur, repeatedly
    depicted a mill standing on it.
    Perhaps this is a place fanned
    memories of the past seemed

    vitality and truth
    life associated with nature. Such
    works like “The Mill Stream” (1811
    d.), “The Dam and the Mill at Dedham” (1820
    d.), Constable appears bold and
    independent master. Overlaying
    paint in thick convex strokes, he
    refused carefully written
    details and spectacular lighting, for the first time
    used pure green colors of different
    shades. “Remember that your best
    mentor and first leader
    nature, says one of the letters
    Constable. “Learn from her.”

    In the 20s. artist
    continued to write sketches from nature,
    processing them then into exhibition
    canvases in which he tried to preserve
    freshness of natural impressions and
    at the same time striving for more
    completeness. For one such picture
    – “The White Horse” (1819) – Constable
    received the title of academician, however,
    it happened only ten years later
    after the canvas has been created and
    exhibited at the academy.

    Etude “Cart for
    hay” (1821) Constable repeated in the same
    year in the big picture: he depicted
    already familiar to the viewer mill, past
    which the river stream runs, disappearing
    in the wilderness. Written

    laid densely and unevenly, it contains a lot
    sky, air, water. It seems that it is possible
    hear the sound of the river and the rustle of leaves.
    The finished version looks drier,
    there is no freedom of the brush, since
    the artist strove for an accurate transfer
    details and completeness of the composition.

    Constable’s works
    caught the attention of the French
    artist Theodore Géricault, who
    traveled to England in the early 1920s. Back
    to Paris, he spoke of the shock
    which he experienced when he saw the canvases of Constable.
    As a result, one French merchant
    paintings bought from the master three
    work. They were first displayed at
    merchant, and then in 1824 in Paris
    Salon. French artists and amateurs
    the arts were admired by these
    landscapes. Constable received a gold
    Salon medal.

    One of the best
    works of the late period of creativity
    Constable – “Stockby Neuland” (1836).
    Here the master depicted a village according to
    neighborhood with his native village, people
    a horse harnessed to a cart, and
    road leading into the forest. Scale
    the characters in the picture are incommensurable with
    the scale of nature – with the boundless

    John’s work
    Constable to XX
    remained unnoticed at home,
    but had a huge impact on the development
    French painting. French
    masters XIX

    his canvases, studied them, admired
    painting technique and completely shared
    worship of the English landscape painter
    in front of nature.



    Joseph Mellord
    William Turner was born in London. His
    father ran a barbershop. In those times
    the barbershop was the same place
    meetings and conversations, as traditional
    English beer. Artists have been here
    engravers and poets. Father hung on
    son’s watercolor walls for sale.

    In 1789 Turner
    admitted to school at the Royal
    academy of arts. At fifteen
    artist in

    posted for the first time
    at the academy his watercolor. He studied and
    worked: mastered modern watercolor
    technique that has traditionally been used
    so-called topographic
    landscapes – small accurate views of estates,
    parks, castles and cathedrals; copied to
    commissioned works of old masters.

    In the 90s. Turner
    turned to oil painting.
    Imitating the Dutch masters, he
    painted the painting “Danish ships under
    wind” (1801). This work has shown
    increased skill of the artist.
    Some even thought that he
    copied the old landscape.

    In 1802 the artist
    was elected a full member
    Royal Academy of Arts and
    the end of his days honestly served her,
    participating in the organization of exhibitions,
    lecturing to the general public and
    teaching students.

    In 1806-1812. Turner
    created a series of studies in which he depicted
    the banks of the Thames. These include landscape
    on the Thames” (“Landscape with a white rainbow”),
    painted in watercolor around 1806



    National Gallery started with
    thirty-eight paintings that are British
    the government acquired from the heirs
    banker John Julius Angerstein
    (immigrant from Russia). From May 10, 1824 they were
    exhibited in the home of the deceased
    collector. Later the assembly
    replenished mainly with gifts from private
    persons. So, in 1825-1847. entered the museum
    canvases of the Renaissance masters: “Dream
    knight” by Raphael, “Bacchus and Ariadne” by Titian
    and “Portrait of the Arnolfinis” Jan
    van Eyck, as well as the “Bacchanalia” of the French
    painter Nicolas Poussin and The Bather
    Dutch painter Rembrandt.

    In 1838
    the collection is housed in a new
    building in Trafalgar Square,
    which was built according to the project
    architect William Wilkins (1778-1839).
    Her fate was of keen interest to the English
    society. In particular, restoration
    works carried out in the gallery in
    40-50s XIX
    disturbed the Londoners, who were afraid
    damage to pictures. Parliament appointed
    special commission, which justified
    actions of restorers, but noted
    that the state does not help enough
    National Gallery.

    this museums began to periodically receive
    significant funds from the government
    to complete the collection. Thanks to
    them in the 50-80s. works were bought
    painting of the Italian Renaissance:
    part of the composition “Battle of San Romano”
    Paolo Uccello, The Baptism of Christ and
    “Christmas” by Piero della Francesca,
    “Adoration of the Magi” and “Venus and
    Mars by Sandro Botticelli, variant
    Madonnas in the Grotto by Leonardo da Vinci
    “Madonna Ansidei” by Raphael and others. In
    1871 for the gallery acquired the richest
    collection of Flemish and Dutch
    painting owned by the British
    Prime Minister Robert Peel.

    In 1903
    in Great Britain the National
    art fund, with the support
    which for the London meeting
    was acquired, in particular, “Venus
    in front of a mirror” by a Spanish painter
    Diego Velasquez. Then to the gallery
    received several collections
    wills of their owners: in 1910 – one hundred
    ninety-two paintings, including
    “Our Lady” by the Dutch master
    Robert Campin, in 1915 – French

    in 1916 – works of Italian
    Artists XV

    the National Gallery was formed
    in XIX

    20th century
    when all the glorified pictures,
    seemed to take their places in
    museums in Europe. However, the collection was created
    connoisseurs of art history, therefore
    here you can see first-class
    canvases. Gallery visitor receives
    a complete picture of the painting
    or another era. The brightest and
    successively shown as
    Italian art developed
    Netherlands. The gallery has
    recognized masterpieces of the English school:
    Shrimp Girl by William
    Hogarth, “Portrait of Admiral Heathfield”
    by Joshua Reynolds, Portrait of a Married
    Andrews” by Thomas Gainsborough.

    the National Gallery has
    about six and a half thousand
    works of Western European
    painting. In the main halls you can see
    only the very best of them. Paintings
    placed not in national schools, but
    in chronological order – by time
    creation. The exhibition is divided into four
    section. In the so-called wing
    Sansbury exhibited paintings painted
    between 1260 and 1510; in the west wing
    painting 1510-1600 north wing
    occupy the works of 1600-1700,
    eastern – work 1700-1920 years For the best
    perception canvases hung in one
    row. Less significant exhibits
    stored in storage on the ground floor,
    where visitors are also allowed.

    watercolor technique
    Turner’s painting became more and more difficult
    and more virtuoso. Here’s how, according to the story
    eyewitnesses, watercolor was created
    “First class frigate replenishing
    reserves” (1818). The son of the artist’s friends
    asked Turner, who was visiting them,
    draw a frigate The artist took a sheet
    poured liquid paint on paper until
    she did not get wet, and then began to scrape,
    wipe the paper like crazy, and that’s it
    seemed like chaos, but gradually, as it were
    by magic, a ship began to be born
    with all its lovely details,

    by the time of the second
    breakfast figure triumphantly
    presented. ..” Turner had to
    deal with graphics. In 1807-1819. He
    attempted to create an encyclopedia
    landscape engravings. He gave her a Latin
    name “Liber
    Studiorum” (“Book
    sketches”) and assumed on a hundred sheets,
    made in various techniques
    engravings, show the development of the landscape
    in European painting. The idea failed
    but in this job, Turner raised a whole
    group of excellent engravers.

    the mind of the artist is nature, his constant
    and the main character, increasingly appeared
    not only a majestic spectacle, but also a background
    historical events. In style
    Dutch marina Turner portrayed
    modern plot – the death of a passenger
    ship. Two-thirds of the picture is
    image of a stormy sea. Openwork
    whitish foam forms on it
    the surface of a huge oval –
    compositional core of the picture. In the center
    his is a boat full of people.
    And this is the only subject in the composition,
    maintaining balance. Right on
    the crest of the shaft soars the sailboat,
    finally lost its stability.
    To the left and in the depths of the picture – perishing
    ships that are out of control. Their masts
    broken, sails torn off, decks flooded

    through the Alps. 1812 Tate Gallery, London.

    painted this picture in the year of the invasion
    Napoleon in Russia. It is known that
    Napoleon compared to Hannibal
    – General of Carthage
    rival city-state
    with Ancient Rome for dominion over
    Mediterranean. In composition
    used favorite Turner
    reception: the most dramatic part
    the picture is inscribed in an oval. Blizzard, flakes
    snow rolls into a huge funnel,
    pulling into the crevice of the mountains confused
    warriors. Blizzard written amazingly
    exactly. Once Turner was watching a snowstorm
    on the estate of his friend. He sketched
    sudden storm on
    postal envelope and promised that
    in two years everyone will see this blizzard on
    “Hannibal’s Crossing the Alps” painting.

    the slave trade was one of the articles

    Turner’s life Parliament passed a law
    banning human trafficking
    goods, but a terrible stain on the conscience
    British nation for a long time
    disturbed the imagination of artists,
    writers and poets. At the heart of this painting
    is a real event. Captain
