That's what makes the trilogy a very interesting work. Because we are all drawn to the mystique of the work. JRR Tolkien gave us a superabundant gift from which we can never dig too greedily because...

Ring Cate Blanchett/Galadriel

I've always loved Cate. From the first time I saw her in 'Elizabeth' I've kept close watch on her career. Of course she is perfect as Galadriel. <BR>1. Who would have played Galadriel other than...

I guess Peter Jackson will make her deviate from the path to the Havens to a place where she'll furiously start sewing Aragorn's bejeweled banner to be unfurled in The Return of the King!

Aside from being a poem of foreboding and evanescence, couldn't it also be a call to arms to the people of Rohan? All the asking in the poem (Where? Where? Who?) may have been meant to rouse the...

Perhaps the OneRing knew Galadriel's soft spot: that in her heart she harbored a small desire to be queen.

By the way, how much older is...

We must consider that Elves possess a "bittersweet knowledge that they are about to pass into myth." And Arwen being part-elf was a creature of solitude and contemplation. Arwen's retreat makes...

Shouldn't the 'd' in Galadriel be pronounced with a slight 'th' sound and not with a hard 'd'? Like /ga-LATH-ri-yel/ ? Just asking. Because Christopher Tolkien says it's /METH-ros/ for Maedhros...

Sting Hope for Undomiel.

If Arwen repented after the death of Aragorn, could she have joined Legolas & Gimli to the Undying Lands and allowed access to Eldamar?

Maybe elves can opt to grow facial hair or not. Wasn't there a Hephaestus-like elf mentioned in The Silmarilion? I forgot his name but I distinctly remember that he was a rugged and rustic elf who...

I wish I hadn't read in one of the spoilers here that the Scouring of the Shire had been totally left out of the film. To me, it's the formal end of the War of the Ring and for it not to be...
