More than that, the fact that Bolg wants to avenge his father indicates that Orcs are not wholly evil and capable of affection for their families.

Radagast is an imbecile. And a criminally apathetic one at that.

This movie is a masterpiece. It feels very much like a book adaptation, with long scenes of dialogue between characters that haven't been to vigorously cut down.
It is a very, very good movie. The...

I am glad they showed Radagast as the cowardly simpleton he was.
His apathy during the War of the Ring has always been absolutely indefensible to me so it was nice to see both Gandalf talking down...

I hate it. I think it's an insult to the work of Tolkien.

The cartoons was an abomination. Sam looked mentally deficient, and I really mean that, he looked simple. Saruman sounded like a common pervert, hanging outside the toilets to offer kids some candy....

I was refering to the name of the film. I am fully aware that Bombadil was simply a creepy guy who lived in the woods.

This movie isn't going to happen, is it? They'll just keep coming up with excuse after excuse and it will languish in development Hell until being utterly forgotten.
For Gods sake, just do the movie...

I think the fate of Gollum kind of exemplifies how I see herosm. Above all, the adulation of others is fickle. They cast you as hero and villain often in the same breath. So quick to laud you when...

I doubt they would have seen him. Whereas the Ringwraiths were cunning enemies and the cream of Sauron's crop, the Barrow-Wights were merely puppets. Called up by the Witch-King if I am not mistaken....

The scariest thing Tolkien ever created? it's a tie.
On the one hand you've got Smeagol, a psychotic, schizophrenic killer who would kill his own mother if it meant he got his mitts on the Ring....

Would Gandalf ever physically assault a Hobbit?
Yes. He probably would. The man has a horrible temper. Sure, this is outshined by his sage advice and bravery but he doesn't suffer fools gladly.

Wow, I pop my head out of the gutter and what should I see? An old thread of mine risen from the dead!

I hope that he doesn't go for what Jackson created. Rather I hope we see things in a slightly more fantastical way (Apart from costumes of course, the good work must not be undone) because I want...

Could the fan community make a film? If we hired actors, yes. In terms of scripting though it would fail. It would fail because every fan has such clearly defined ideas of the series and what should...

Boromir88 looks like an academic sort. A pair of glasses similar to those of John Lennon. A tweed jacket with patches on the elbows and a book eternally stuck under one arm.

I think that it was just Sam talking to himself. I mean, Frodo wasn't much of a conversationalist by that point was he?
