Well, I can't see all that having any direct effect on perceptions of the LOTR films.

I daresay Executive Producer is not something most people really pay attention to with movies. I'm not much of...

Possibly, I would say. Why would Eru be in any way limited in creative power? But if those other world existed, none but their Creator could know.

As it should be.

Men were creatures of Eń. The Void, whether a physical or spiritual realm, would seem to be not of the material universe, as it was a negative of 'the World That Is'. As the...

It depends on whether the fea could exist there. And that's just speculation. My opinion would be negative.

Like I said, I don't think the Valar would have tolerated Sauron indefinitely. A renegade Maia making himself king and god over Middle-earth was an insult to their authority, not to mention "unfair"...

Since the Void was Nothing, I don't know that even the existence of consciousness in any of the Children of Il˙vatar could be possible.

Some of us Dead Folks is old, and some (like me) are working this lovely Sunday!

In short, I think that if for some reason Gandalf's plan to defeat Sauron would have been foiled, Il˙vatar,...

The best glimpse of the fate of Men's spirits seems to be in The Silmarillion, dealing with Beren after his death.





From that, it looks like Men just wait for a time in Mandos until they...

The Doom of Men as presented in The Silmarillion indeed is a total mystery to the Children of Ilűvatar, but there are hints that the Valar do know. Certainly ManwŰ and Mandos would, but they aren't...

To start, I think it would be extremely difficult, if not impossible, for any unauthorized person to board a ship at Mithlond unobserved.
