They're not really the same characters from that age since they were very much younger in the Amazon TV show. Experience and all would eventually make them different. But that asides, Galadriel is immensely powerful. I noticed it in that scene but after remembering how powerful she is, it checked out.
She's one of the most powerful Elves, probably top 5, if not top 3. And the age the show focuses on was her warrior days.

oh well, if you say so.
The show needs to pick up on character development tho...so far only 2 characters have my attention and that's Elrond and his dwarf prince friend.

The problem following this movie is quite long and the low ratings was expected tbh. Shia LaBeouf was to play the lead, but Florence Pugh didn't want to work with him cuz of accusations that he his an abuser, so Olivia Wilde trying to please her switched to Harry Styles, who she's dating btw. Florence Pugh was happy that Olivia Wilde tried to protect her from an "abuser" but in reality it was actually Shia LaBeouf that quit the movie and he has receipt of Olivia Wilde begging him not to quit. Florence Pugh found out and decided to skip promotional tours for the Movie and there's also a rumour that she romantically likes Harry Styles whom Olivia Wilde is dating, so basically, the 2 ladies are dragging one man...so side beef.

So the problem with the movie is long and complicated....na WB I pity pass.

Yep, I already know about the issues surrounding the movie.
I still don't think that should affect ratings critically if they are truly professional about it.

Anyways, I guess that's just some critics views about it cos I've seen some positives too. ↓↓

For starters, Harry Styles Performance was mid as he's not well grounded in acting and he only got the job because he was dating Olivia Wilde. That alone can drive down ratings.

You were on the right track until you said Pugh and Styles had a romantic link. Nah.

Due to his history of victimizing women and "method" acting style, Pugh found it difficult to work with Shia. Shia apparently comes off as too antagonistic when he's acting out his part.

Anyhoo, Shia abruptly quit the project (must have read the script and decided it was dogshit), and Wilde, who was dating Styles (whom she was screwing, which resulted in the breakup of her engagement to Jason Sudeikis), decided to cast Styles as a replacement.

Wilde and Styles were openly cuddly in the studio when she was still engaged to Sudeikis, according to reports. Pugh wasn't cool with this because she dated Jason Sudeikis's close friend, and was also a friend of Sudeikis.

Following Wilde's casting of Styles as co-lead, it was revealed that the two would openly fool around in the studio, often forgetting their responsibilities. Pugh was even said to have directed some scenes herself because Olivia chose to make herself scarce on several occasions. The project was a train wreck that lasted 24 months, culminating in Olivia lying to the press about firing Shia because he brought toxicity to their work environment.

Unfortunately for her, Shia had anticipated this and had saved the video call she had made to him, which he promptly released to Variety magazine. In the video, she practically begged Shia to return while also disparaging Pugh with some offhand condescending remarks. Olivia Wilde, who was already at odds with Pugh for unrelated reasons, in a bid to appease Shia, threw some shades at Pugh by saying "it's going to be a wake up call for Miss Flo" or something along those lines.

Pugh, who has been a consummate professional throughout the ordeal, snubbed the film's promotional tour, and on the same day DWD was supposed to meet with the press, she uploaded an Openheimer promotional poster to her Instagram. I can only assume she was attempting to distance herself from DWD as much as possible. She was well aware that the film would be a flop.

That's basically it. The end.

As far as Venice ovations go, 4 minutes is mediocre. For comparison, The Whale, which screened at the same festival, received a 6-minute standing ovation.

She is just another privileged Hollywood elitist swindling herself into lucrative projects she doesn't deserve.

She's a hypocrite who claims to be a feminist but didn't think twice about throwing her female lead under the bus to save her own ass.

That's why I stated that it is a rumour so it may or may not be true. It's one of the theory going on in film Twitter this week.

The rest of your post is basically the hang of it...I respect Olivia Wilde's craft as an actress but her career as a director is as chaotic as they come.

What's there to respect? I can't think of a single noteworthy role she played as an actress. She consistently featured in shitty movies and usually as a side character. Before venturing into directing, she was a C-lister at best.

Could you name a few of her best acting roles? She is an utter bore, based on the ones I've seen.

She's not over the top good like I said but I enjoyed her performance in the above.

I can't help but think of her roles as those of a generic plot device, only serving to move the story along.
