Nothing much, but I thought I would share with you.

Both pictures have very high quality. I wonder what Ted Nasmith would have drawn. I like Howe's version because it made the Goblin more intimidating with the skulls on his neck. I get the impression...

I have a feeling the White Council might reappear because Saruman was going to aid the council for the last time and drive Sauron out of Dol Guldur.

I'm only making a humble comment here: I enjoyed the Hobbit film a lot. It is a very good film. However, it is not as faithful to the book as the LOTR trilogy. The Hobbit film contains more fan...

Now it is 65% on Rotten Tomatoes, and 58 on Metacritic. I respect Metacritic. I say this though: Do not listen to the critics. Critics give the film positive and negative reviews but most are...

Radagast was sort of a fan fiction character in the movie. What I mean is that Peter Jackson is making up stuff about Radagast like his bunny sled and lodgings. I was entertained by the bunny chase...

I forgot most of the details of the movie but I hated the Great Goblin. His facial CGI was -for a lack of better word- fake. The Goblin King looked very stupid. I wasn't disappointed with the Goblin...

I thought I might just share some images I found on a website. It's only a few pics. Here it is.

It would be a mistake to say that Tolkien did something wrong and Jackson did right. I'm not saying that Middle Earth is perfect but there isn't really much that Tolkien can improve on in his world,...

Arwen, because she is descended from Luthien the fairest elf to ever live. It says somewhere in the Lord of the Rings books that Arwen was the fairest since the time of Luthien.

I tried reading [B]Eye of the world[B] by Robert Jordan. I didn't last the first chapter. My book savvy friends recommended the series. It has to be a rip-off of Tolkien. I might give it another go...

I mean, it's more than 6000 years since Feanor...

I've read the earlier replies. If Jackson wants to 'show more of the story' then perhaps the third film shouldn't be part of the trilogy but rather a separate film containing white council stuff,...

The Hobbit trilogy will never be as good as the LOTR. I'm not sure about doing damage but it will certainly be read more often in the lead up. The other day I saw a school jock borrowing a Hobbit...

The last time I checked at Metacritic or some other site, the rating was at 78%. I'm very willing to see the film since it is better than the crap that comes out of Hollywood these days. Still the...
