I agree that it is sad that more people have seen the movies than have read the books and that many of those people think the movies are better than the books. For me both the books and the movies...

I happen to like the scene as it is...I mean it can't be the exact same as it was in the book. After all, the movies are an adaptation of the books.

I believe that the movies were an interpretation of the books. And to an extent that they can't be comparend. But I don't think that all of the characters suffered, they were just portrayed...

I think Billy Boyd is an amazing actor and did a fantastic job as Pippin. However, as far as me feeling Pippin getting gipped...I'd have to disagree. He was one of those characters that as soon as...

The books have been around for some 60 years, I think, and I don't see them going away. The Lord of the Rings will always be mentioned as a classic and one of, if not the greatest book written in the...

I don't feel that Gimli got the short end of the stick, nor do I feel that he was used as a scapegoat. I feel that there was a bit of added comic relief for him but nothing that made me angry or...

Boromir's death would have to be one of the most tragic moments of the entire book. I would also rank Theoden's death up there as well.

I kind of figured she'd a lot of Orcs...seeing as how she lived in the pass of Cirith Ungol. Also...if you believe Gollum, Orcs don't taste very good either.

You could always look at it this way. They way things happened was the way they were meant to happen (or the way Tolkien wanted them to). All of the possibilities could have happened...but it would...

Orcs take joy in causing death and destruction. They know what they are doing and therefore cannot be redeemed. Orcs are evil, plain and simple.

To my knowledge Lurtz was not in the books and I really, really would not like to see or even have to think about a female Orc. I already know what male orcs look like and they're pretty gruesome...

I would want to see the Old Forest, the House of Tom Bombadil, Erebor, the Iron Hills and most definitely Angmar. Oh and we can't forget the Barrow-Downs. I think of all the places in Middle-Earth...

I don't think Sauron with rerturn, but do I think that evil has been destroyed forever? No. Good and Evil depend on each other. They create the balance. You can't have one without the other. Evil can...

I think that the movies served as an added experience. They were just another way to enjoy Tolkien's work. The movies were a visual interpretation of the books and were amazing.

I think Boromir's Death was just the first of many tragic moments in the book. I feel that Treebeard was a wee bit tragic because of there being no more Entwives. I also thought Theoden's death at...
