I wasn't really <I>pleased</I> with Faramir when I first saw TTT. But I wasn't thrown into fits of despair. I usually go into a movie with my expectations extrordinarily low so I never get too...

So far, LOTR hasn't recieved any Best Picture Oscars. FotR was beat out by A Beautiful Mind and TTT was trounced by Chicago. However, I think RotK has a good chance for Best Picture. Then again,...

I was always thought of the Rohirrim as a semi-nomadic people. So great stone cities don't seem to be in character here. Also, cavalry should wear lighter armor to monopolize on their improved...

On the subject of evil, Tolkien wasn't using an oversimplification of evil, he was operating on the theory establishe by St. Augustine (or maybe it was Aquinas, oh well.) In his theory, evil wasn't...

I also always thought that orcs were a good deal smaller and weaker than humans and usually had numbers on their side. However, they have other advantages too. In The Hobbit, Tolkien describes orcs...

Good point on the orc diversity. Now that I think of it, they had different languages too.

BTW, although the Mouth of Sauron DID have a name at one point, his service to Sauron caused him to...

This is just a theory of mine, but oh well. Feel free to correct me if I screw up anywhere.

Throughout LOTR, Tolkien applies the characteristic of unity to the dark forces and the characteristic...

I find most fantasy writing to be very poorly written but once I get the book in my hands I enjoy it anyway.

Anyway, I really enjoyed the Belgariad and the Malloreon by David Eddings. They are...

I never noticed it until a friend pointed it out to me. And now I can't watch that scene without seeing the "dead" orc. And it was one of my favorite scenes too.

"Scouring of the Shire" is my favorite section of LOTR, but I understand why they cut it. The movie's already immense because they have to include the end of TTT. But I still wish I could see...

Gollum could not see Frodo! Frodo was invisible. Gollum could not see Bilbo either. If you remember, in The Hobbit, Bilbo tripped and fell when Gollum was chasing him. Then the ring slipped on his...

I'm not sure, but I always thought that Orcs were stockier, stronger, and better fighters, and Goblins were smaller, craftier, and sneakier. I think that they live together in the Misty Mountains,...

The cartoon is so bad...it's funny! My sister and I watch it all the time when we need a good chuckle. I especially love the "fearsome" Nazgul.

I think that although Gandalf knew that there was a Balrog in Moria, he thought it was dormant. He had no idea Pippin would be so bumbling and wake the Balrog up.
