Assuming you're referring to the USA, the two largest ancestral groups are German and Irish. English comes third.

With so many Americans of non-English descent, I don't think it's surprising that...

But it still would've been released as 'The Lord of the Rings', which effectively IS claiming to be close to the source material.



With Gimli being beaten in a hole and Frodo engaging in sexual...

Gollum's Song - need I say more? One of the most haunting, mysterious songs I've ever heard. From the desolate intro music to the last lines echoing away: 'You are lost, you can never go home...'

I can't say I'm happy about Aragorn returning as an adult - the whole point of the original book was that the central 'hero' is not a sword-swinging champion but a small hobbit. Also, I don't know...

The thing is that the Nazgul simply weren't particularly powerful. I mean, what power did they actually have? They carry swords, have nasty voices and that's pretty much it. Also they have a...

Actually I think it makes some more sense there, as in the PJ adaptation Aragorn actually has a proper sword in addition to a torch.

Does anyone know why Tolkien chose to have Aragorn, supposedly...

A Bafta is just an award. It hardly equates to financial gains, which is what the companies are after. It will not increase the movie's gross by a single cent.

I admire Christopher's actions - he's chosen to stay neutral. He hasn't approved and he hasn't disapproved. Instead he's wisely spent his time productively on the books and I'd say the publication of...

I believe having John Rhys Davies sat in Denethor's throne was a reference to the movie's early days of production, when John Rhys Davies was indeed going to play Denethor.

Nice work :) Something like this would have been far preferrable to the humiliation Gandalf was put through in the EE.

Compass will certainly make a profit; that's no longer a question. The debate now focuses on whether there will be sequels. I doubt this as, if I remember rightly, the second book is incredibly dull....

What a great piece of writing.



Very interesting - in The New Shadow, Tolkien planned to have Gondor fall into decay and evil practices once Aragorn had died. Perhaps that story would have...

I would also be interested in this. Sure, a lot of interest in the movie sequence by sequence died out, but that may simply have been because it went on so long.
