I'm not too sure how much you know about Milton or Beowulf, but there are definitely some parallels between LotR and the two of them. For instance, the Ainulindale is shockingly similar to the...

I think Jackson did just enough with the Pukel statues to tie them into his rumored 5+ hour EE, but didn't want to do too much and throw the average movie-goer off track. <BR>I never thought about...

My thoughts were that Maglor's suffereing and sorrow led him to eventually either a. commit suicide (as was already mentioned), or b. fall victim to all of his suffering and fade out of existence as...

In response to the "Mouth of Sauron" pleas (which I too am dying to see, especially after he was in the video game) I noticed something during my third viewing today. If you keep an eye on Anduril...

I don't think that I could ever bring myself to even form a halfway definite opinion on this question. It's just too hard of a question, I think. I mean, yeah, the Rohirrim had horses and were in...

Shivers again at the very memory of that scene in the theatres. That and Aragorn's coronation speech. My friend got a bit freaked out when he heard me singing along in the High Quenya. I almost cried.

I too wished to see the difference. However, because not everyone has seen the extended versions, if the difference were too noticeable, it might be a bit too confusing. Maybe Peter Jackson will...

The image of the ring-giver is also illustrated in the epic Beowulf, which the Professor worked ardently upon. A good and generous king (like Hrothgar, in Beowulf)gave his most loyal subject rings in...

Elves are definitely not "weightless" (at least not in the sense that first comes to my mind), otherwise they would be able to jump as high as they wanted or even fly. Elves are however, the most...

The poster hanging up in my room has November 4th on it. The sixth may be the first day that Amazon can actively distribute the game themselves. I would imagine that it would take a bit longer for a...
