Andy Fairhurst Lord of the Rings Prints

As we wait for Amazon to take us back to Middle-earth with a new sprawling, epic Lord of the Rings series (which may have a staggering 20 episodes in its first season), let’s look back at Peter Jackson’s film trilogy with a new set of prints from artist Andy Fairhurst. In his trademark style, the prints pay tribute to scenes from Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring featuring Arwen (Liv Tyler), Gandalf the Grey (Ian McKellen), and Boromir (Sean Bean) in heroic stances.

Carnival Row Review

It would be easy to categorize Carnival Row—the eight-episode Amazon Original series set to premiere on August 30th—as Amazon’s attempt to create a Game of Thrones-esque hit for their streaming platform. This categorization isn’t wrong, exactly—Amazon has clearly invested a large amount of money to make this a flagship show for them—but placing Carnival Row into only this bucket does the series a disservice. 

Yes, the new series is like Game of Thrones in that it takes place in a darkly fantastical world full of geopolitical strife and unnatural evils; and yes, like a certain HBO show, Carnival Row, with its graphic deaths (and innumerable close-up shots of entrails), nudity and foul language, is definitely not suitable for children. These similarities, however, are superficial at best. Viewers will get a different experience here—a more intimate one that reveals Carnival Row’s magically effed-up world through a cadre of unique individuals with varying levels of social status.
