Boots Interesting article

I had not consulted any other sites to gauge reaction to the news, so this information both intrigues and pleases me.



That comment irritated me.

It is not that the events between The Hobbit...

That logic would definitively nix The Children of Hurin.

Young Aragorn looks ever more likely.

I will admit to being curious if the production team for the TV show will take the design aesthetic in a direction away from the designs laid out by Jackson and Co.

For example, being a dwarf, it...

I've revised my original opinion (see above), but this does pose an interesting question of where the line is regarding what is considered included within a particular work.

My bet is on a young Aragorn, although some kind of adaptation of the Sil might be possible.

I guess if they really want to go full on Game of Thrones they could do the Kin-strife.

It is a fearsome struggle to constrain myself to socially acceptable vocabulary to describe my reaction to this news.

There is no reason for somebody who respects Tolkien's work to be optimistic...

My belief is that the more closely bound to their physical body a Ainur became the more they were subject to "biologial" impulses and experiences.

So Sauron, by this reasoning, would be more...

The question is would it be well done.

I'm already skeptical just on the basis of who is involved. I don't think their motivations lend themselves to being faithful to Tolkien's narrative. I...

I think part of the reason why banditry is so limited is the low population of Middle-earth.

Quite right.

I primarily meant in the behavioral and physical outcome sense. Their behaviors in their degraded states had a resemblance.
