J.R.R. Tolkien is one of the most celebrated writers in fantasy fiction history. Check out a quick biography about the author of The Lord of the Rings and other Middle-earth works.

“There aren’t many 20th century authors whose popularity could match that of English fantasy icon J.R.R. Tolkien (1892-1973). The mind behind The Lord of the Rings and various other works set in Middle-earth has inspired generations of creators and helped establish the high-fantasy genre as one of the most powerful in the marketplace today.”

Without a doubt, the Snyder Cut benefited from its straight-to-streaming release on HBO Max.”

“These days, we’re all looking for an escape from reality, at least for a couple hours a day, and what better way to do that than to binge-watch the best genre television series this year has to offer? It’s only April, but we’re already off to a great start, and with many productions starting back up again or finally kicking off after lengthy delays, there is even more great science fiction and fantasy TV coming in the next months to tide us all over while we wait until we’re allowed outside again.”
