I would very much like to be an Elven archer from Lothlorien. But in reality, I would probably not be a fighter at all. I would probably embark on a bard's journey; that is, travel around Middle...

I discovered the Barrow Downs in much the same way that Maeg did. I was looking for a LOTR's name generator, as well as some good RPGs and fan fiction. After reading a few games in the Shire, I...

I would have to say that my other favorite fantasy movies would be the Star Wars Trilogy. I used to be obssessed with it in Jr. High. I'm not so sure I like the prequels so much, but I am still...

Just out of curiosity, what is it exactly that your teacher thinks about fantasy? Does she not like LOTRs? Does she not understand that why teenagers would like it? But just as a precaution, please...

I'm not sure whether this would work or not, but along with bows and spikes, I would attempt using fire. Light some large arrows on fire and shoot them at the troll. Now, perhaps a troll's skin is...

Firstly, I would have to agree with Beleg on why Tolkien's work is so popular. It is truly amazing to think that Tolkien created his own mini-world, with lots and lots of history, maps, languages,...

This view of LOTRs is certainly very interesting; one that had never occured to me before. However, I believe that Tolkien probably did not conciously write about fatherhood. Not to say that it...

Although I do not believe that PJ and the other screenwriters quite realized that they had made this little mistake, it could be argued that the "release" of the Witch King refers more to his finally...

My first name, Linnahiril, means either "Lady of Song," or "Lady of Music", because I love music. It has always been an essential part of my life. My second name, Tinnufinwen, means "Night-haired...

I would have to say that one of my favorite extended scenes would be the one in the TT, where they show a flashback to Osgiliath with Boromir, Faramir, and Denethor. It gave me a better understanding...

There are such a variety of good songs in LOTRs, that it is really hard to choose just one. Some of my favorite songs would have to be:

I'm afriad that I'm baffled by Frodo's sea dream (although it might have something to do with the actual sea itself, and the sea-longing of the Elves) but I think Bilbo's dream in The Hobbit might...

I believe that Movie-Aragorn's decision to kill the Mouth of Sauron was probably written from an entirely cinamatic stand point. Somewhere along the lines of, "Well, this guy is really annoying and...
