The Lord Of The Rings : PEASANT GIRLS IN MAKE UP

PEASANT GIRLS IN MAKE UP

In the peasant fishing village that is attacked by the dragon all the young
girls were not only model perfect but wore lip stick,lip gloss and heavy make up but obviously instead of hiding in the caves
were ready to fight at the end. Asking the trolls to wait while they adjusted
their make up?

And how could Peter Jackson maker of DEAD ALIVE let Alfred live?

Re: PEASANT GIRLS IN MAKE UP

Why shouldn't they look model perfect and wear lip gloss?

l0000l

too much shannara me thinks

Re: PEASANT GIRLS IN MAKE UP

Because the movie takes place in a medieval type culture and fish monger women did not wear makeup. Do you think that they should have had tattoos and dyed red/blue hair as well?

Re: PEASANT GIRLS IN MAKE UP

Women and men in major production movies almost always wear make up.

it is just in my opinion - imo - 🌈

Re: PEASANT GIRLS IN MAKE UP

and tans to boot.


and modern clothes.


But only if the director is targeting a thick as shyte audience.

Re: PEASANT GIRLS IN MAKE UP

Big blockbuster movies by definition are targeting the mass audience, average people, folks who have never taken a college level history class about ancient civilizations.

In addition this is a fantasy film. Why quibble about makeup when there are magic rings, elves and wizards?

As a result, characters like peasant girls wearing make up will not hurt box office one bit but might help it.

Imo at least, BB ;-)

Re: PEASANT GIRLS IN MAKE UP

"never taken a college level history class"

- if the benchmark for knowing something trivial is taking a college/uni lecture in it (if you need to be TOLD that medieval people didn't wear modern makeup, that is) then I pity you for being brought up where you are.


"in addition this is fantasy film" so anything goes - a fantasy film based on euro medieval society. Therefore no modern stuff. YOUR argument says "why not include flying cars and airplanes too?"
I am not sure this is the argument you were aiming for, but you should steer clear of it now its been pointed out to you.



I'll concede your final point since it fits well with what I've said.

Additionally, the film is based on a childrens book, and children can get a free pass for not knowing obvious stuff, so theres that argument in your favour.


Re: PEASANT GIRLS IN MAKE UP

Films such as the Seventh Seal or Becket have peasants wearing makeup.

It has nothing to do with whether something is based on a children's book.
Make up is a convention in major production films.

It isn't a matter of what is historically accurate. It is about what major movie productions do.
The tradition of using make up goes back to stage productions which has carried over to film since the silent era.

Re: PEASANT GIRLS IN MAKE UP

childrens stories are always dumbed down when it comes to adult detail. That is why young adult shannara and 400 have all manner ridiculous addendum to actors despite them being in broken worlds. Do you deny this? If you do, then you flop bigtime.



You are clearly confused about makeup to make peasants look more peasanty, and for dealing with light effects on stage and screen, and your everyday Dolce and Gabanna to make you look hot.I am not sure why you fail to discern the difference.

Perhaps you do need to go to a college lecture to help you understand this, by your own admission. That's not something I need, nor something I've introduced as an insult to you -its solely part of YOUR OPINION that a college lecture can tell you whether they wear makeup in medieval worlds, btw.

If we are being honest, rudimentary forms of makeup was probably used back then, urine may have been used to dye hair, for instance... yeh it wasn't dolce.

Re: PEASANT GIRLS IN MAKE UP

I'll go back to the OP's comment;

In the peasant fishing village that is attacked by the dragon all the young girls were not only model perfect but wore lip stick,lip gloss and heavy make up but obviously instead of hiding in the caves
were ready to fight at the end. Asking the trolls to wait while they adjusted their make up?


- First of all this comment by the OP is about "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" where there is a dragon which attacked Laketown.
And the fight with the trolls / Orcs happened in the ruins of Dale.
- Second, the OP states that the women should be "hiding in the caves". What caves are there at Dale in "Battle of the Five Armies"? No caves are shown near Dale. Is the OP confusing "Battle of the Five Armies" wth the battle at Helm's Deep? Who knows.
- Third this is the Lord of the Rings Board and not a Hobbit Board.

All of this are clues that the OP gave little thought to his/her argument.

* My response is simple which is appropriate to the OP who is clearly confused.
- The issue then is this; are actresses in films playing peasants in medieval times "model perfect" in terms of looks and makeup to enhance those looks?
The answer is yes. And I used Bergman's "Seventh Seal" as an example of that.
Here is an image of the actors in the film.

The women are model perfect and they are wearing make up which covers any blemishes they may have.

I have given reasons why this is done in movies which has been ignored. So, I won't continue repeating that.
I'll just leave the image of "The Seventh Seal", a film I own a copy of which I have seen several times.
