I totally agree with everything that Brinniel said. According to those who write such articles, we probably shouldn't drink herbal teas, cos they're wiches' potions. But I don't care about such...

Well, I agree about the warfare. Though, can you name one culture that wasn't blood-thirsty, so to speak. Except maybe for the Iberians I mentioned earlier. They were the people who didn't fight...

And, yes, Bill Ferny, I agree with you that noone should be criticized for their opinion. This is a disscussion, respect each other, people. Secondly, different literature states different theories....

Wahhh! So many things said. Well, I study this at university, Anglistics, not the Celtology, but... First of all, the first people on the British isles were so called Iberians, as far as we know they...

I also think he was OK. Obviously... He has this look of despair in his eyes,... hopelessness. It's just the same in the book (you can't actually see the look in his eyes there, I know). Somehow,...

I study English lang. and literature at university and we have Tolkien on our reading list for modern British literature. It's actually on the new list, since two years ago. When I saw it, I began to...

Maybe I wouldn't dare rreading it to others, cause it makes me feel uncomfortable, but I often read aloud to myself, especially the LOTR, cause it's so poetic and ... well you know all its qualities....

I also think that Faramir would be better. Maybe I'm not right, but Boromir was in a way more loved by his father, maybe treated better and approved of. He was more like his father and very proud and...

I think the book is suspensible enough, when you read on, you kind of forget about the previous chapter, cause there's so much going on. It didn't spoil it for me. The story jumps from one scene to...

Then who is Goldberry? Or what is she? She's closest to being an elf, I think (river-doughter, fairy or something). She certainly isn't a ghost...

I don't min anything, really, it's just a movie. But ... well, when we put all 3 films together in the end, what shall we get? Why don't we re-write the whole thing. I might be just a little...

Tolkien had said that writing the LOTR and inventing the Middle Earth made him feel like he was the God, but he was merely interpreting God's work, there still had to be God to create all that. I...

Plus, I don't think Eowyn's supposed to be a sex symbol. She's a woman warrior and Miranda Otto gave her the looks. Her forehead? What about it? large foreheads are usually considered elegant and...

I don't know why they don't like her, she's a beautiful woman, good actress, and I must say, maybe some won't like it, but I like her accent.

Glorfindel definitely. He is the king of the Elves, both among the living and on the other side and very powerfull. Arwen is old, but not that old, and he could never have such powers, especially as...

Don't get angry at me, I agree that Glorfindel shouldn't have been thrown out like that, but considering Arwen, I think Liv did her role OK. Anyway, I also agree with you who have mentioned the...

Why, I thought the elves wore only light shoes, made of something that looks like silk or thin leather. Maybe it doesn't matter... What annoys me is that the warriors in the battle are pretty...

I must admit Tom is my favourite character. Funny as he is, he takes things very seriously and behind his singing and merriness there is a brooding mind, thinking of the troubles outside his realm....

I am 25. I've posted here already, but switched to the name I prefer, because it is the meaning of my real name. Sorry, here I am again (from Alceldaiel to Calavanya).
