Giants throwing stones at each other, that quote taken from the Hobbit just signifies a storm or earthquake or simply rubble falling down the mountain. It is just a metaphore used to emphasize the...

I have looked through the topics and cannot find any topics based on this precisely. If there is one, please point me in the right direction.

I read in another topic that 'Sauron had no intention...

People in pubs and inns talk a lot of rubbish. Presumably Hobbits do the same.

Sam had not carried the ring for long enough, it had yet to assert itself over him.

How does the blood of Westernesse pass down a generation?

Is that not simply answered by the fact that a son will get the genes of his father and mother, therefore carry the same blood lineage.

Well, it might have been. I have read the book 9 times and Boromir does not appear as a bad character. Sean Bean makes him appear cold-hearted which is is not. It is only when the ring gets to him...

I did not mean to be negative, I think Sean Bean is a very good actor but his casting as Boromir was not the most accurate.

I am sorry but I disagree. I did not like Sean's portrayal of Boromir. In the book, the Boromir is a very good guy until his one on one with Frodo. His character is seen as much more warm than Sean...

I reckon Tolkien viewed both Rivendell and Lothlorien as havens of peace surrounded by hostile lands. If you think about it, it is rather irrelevant wether or not the orcs and other creatures could...

I agree with those thinking that the chronology of the book and film could not remain the same as it does not necessarily work in the film. The problem lies with the length of the film; Tolkien had...
