I would agree that Elven society seems to utopian in its social structure. I would actually call it a utopian morachy, since the king/queen just seems to be there to keep an eye on everyone. I...

I don't know if I would say Elves are like Men in the Garden of Eden. Remember Adam and Eve were innocent befor eating the apple from the Tree of Life ad afterwards they kne the diference between...

I don't think Tolkien was racist in the "burning crosses on lawns" sense, but he was definatly a product of his age. When he wrote about the physical appeances of his characters, he was probably just...

Okay, we all know that Elves were supposed to be the most beautiful and skillful creatures ever to set foot on Arda, but when it comes right down to it, can we really say it would be better to be an...

Sting The Englishness of LOTR

I'm sure someone else has noticed that the flavor of LOTR is much different than that of modern fantasy. The language for one, especially in the Silmarillion, is very archaic and academic- not in a...

Question What do you think a Silmaril looked like?

I'm really intrigued with the idea of the Silmarils; gems made of a mysterious substance and held the light of the two trees in them. They must have been something special for them to spawn all the...

I'd have to agree that the Lothlorien scene really should have been longer. It's like they were there one minute and then they were gone. Does anyone else think that the friendship between Legolas...

Sting If You Could have one scene from the Silmarillion?

If you could have one scene from the Silmarillion filmed in the same basic fashion as FOTH and you were the director/producer and could film it in any way you wanted, bar costs, which would it be?...

Sting The Language of the Dwarves

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the language of the dwarves wasn't as fully wrought out by Tolkien as the Elven tongue was it? If you were designing the dwarvish language, what would you base it on?

Question If there was one scene you could add?

If there was one scene could have added to FOTR, that wasn't there from the book, what would it be? I would have to go with Tom Bombadill. Sure, the scene is kind of pointless and out of place, but...

As intriging as the idea of going to ME sounds intially, I'd have to pass. The Third Age appears to have been a time of as much turmoil as our own, albiet for different reasons. And I must say, I'm...

It doesn't seem like the elves would really need anything to improve their lives- at least not for the reasons that humans try to improve life. Since the elves are already immortal and immune to...

It seems to me that in ME that have "magical technology." In the Silmarillion, it mentions that a lot of skillful things were made by the Noldor in Valinor, but were subsequently lost. Personally, I...

I guess the problem with trying to do a movie like this is that there's no real way you can cast regular people to play indivuduals who are semi-divine (well not really, but I guess on the sliding...

Though I'm sure this has probably been said before in other posts, I just want to put in my two cents, so to speak. I've been interested in trying to write fantasy for quite awhile, but every idea I...

But wouldn't it be self-defeating to have mostly male dwarves? I mean, its important for all species to reproduce even if that doesn't happen much or the number of offspring is few. I guess its ust...

The appendix to Return of the King states that no more than 1/3 or so of dwarves were female. Statistically (among humans anyway), the distribution of males to females should always be about...

Personally I did see Elrond as being more "pretty". Not quite so battlescarred and more of a benevolent figure. I also thought that Arwen didn't come off well either, but that's another topic. I...

Sting Elrond... What Happened?

Personally, I was horrified to see how Elrond was portrayed in FOTR. He didn't look anything like I imagined, more like he was a Vulcan from Star Trek. While I had problems with the way other...

Hey, everyone. I'm a first time poster and I've got a lot of question and comments to give and I'm glad I finally have a place to discuss them. My first question is, what was the purpose of Men in...
