Silmaril Thank you for your replies

Thank you for your replies, Huinesoron and Inziladun! :D

But I would say that...

Silmaril How about 'Aldrion and Erendis: The Mariner's Wife'?

Eldorion, I agree that the problem with trying to film The New Shadow is that there's only a fragment starting the story, with nothing else written by Tolkien about it, not even a summary, framework,...

Boots The trolls

If you want to talk about bandits, the first we see are the trolls in Chapter 2 of The Hobbit, who aren't just prepared to rob and kill people, but to eat them as well... :(

Thumbs up I agree

You're right, Inziladun. His behaviour doesn't affect my views of the films.

When I read what he was accused of, and checked his connection with the films, I just thought of orc like behaviour by...

Question Only Eru knows

That was a good question you asked, Rhun charioteer, about whether there are other worlds in Eä. I agree with you, Inziladun, that only Eru would know...

White-Hand Thanks for the PM, to which I've replied

Mithalwen, thanks for the PM, to which I've replied, with apologies for the delay. My offer is a serious one: because, as you say, it's 'an interesting topic but potentially a very wide one'. We can...

Boots Thick but very dangerous

Balfrog, I agree with you that the scene with the trolls is 'a comic masterpiece'; because Tolkien still made them very dangerous despite them being 'thick'. While their stupidity was obvious, and...

I think we're in danger of going off topic, in terms of (enjoyably) discussing the previous careers of the actors in the Jackson films...
