Tolkien Tuesday: The Best Lord of the Rings Memes This Week (September 27, 2022)

I really hoped it wouldn’t come to this. After months of refusing to take a stance, and weeks of watching, I have to say that I have a bone to pick with The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. My expectations were never particularly high, but I was initially enraptured by the show. Amazon did way better than I thought they would. It soon became clear that the beauty of the series trumps the writing. I may have been able to overlook it at first, but the writing is straight-up bad. It’s rife with cliche analogies – basically, it’s corny as hell. And while that hasn’t stopped me from watching the series, I can definitely take greater pleasure in memes that mock it. While these memes aren’t all about trashing RoP, there are a few that do a fine job of it. The rest of our weekly batch of Lord of the Rings memes are either supremely stupid, about the original trilogy, or both. Which is exactly how we like it.
