Thumbs up I have, thanks!

Pervinca, thanks for reminding me about the booking situation. Luckily, I was in touch over 2 weeks ago, but even then, had difficulties due to the demand. The TS admitted it was 'blown away' by the...

'Should you be giving certain people bad ideas?'

Formendacil, I found what you wrote here interesting:

Nah, the real twist will come (at the end of season three or four) when Aragorn is killed and Evilagorn takes his place as part of some long...

White-Hand Welcome!

As Inziladun said, welcome to you anyway, Rhun charioteer! Please don't worry about the delay in introducing yourself. I lurked for a long time before I decided to join, let alone make any...

Thumbs up Tolkien Events 2018

1420! Belated congratulations!

Belated congratulations to you, skip!

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,...

Thumbs up I agree

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