Rhudladion - people with a greater knowledge of film and the books than me have had plenty to say already, as you noted. My gripes are all to do with the way in which, I think, they have felt the...

i like the idea that amongst all this power and glory, albeit corrupted, a tiny element of nature comes to Gandalf's aid. Another interpretation of the scene could be that the moth/butterfly acted as...

Hello Barrow-Downs Folk,
if you could ask Tolkien ONE question about Middle-Earth which would clear up the greatest amount of speculation or controversy, what would it be?

This is not meant to be...

Perhaps the Blue Wizards who went...

looks like you've stirred up a hornet's nest obloquy.

Sauron was known as the Necromancer, but i don't think necromancy is the power behind the Nazgul. I can't remember how the 9 got their hands...

it may be a precursor to the appearance of the phial of galadriel later on, but I don't know who the "for eyes to see that can" bit refers to. Sam?

You guys have got it all wrong. Lembas was something given to people who have to endure hardship, especially during war, right? Then Lembas is quite clearly Anzac Biscuits. Tasty, simple, last for...

It would have been interesting to see what other reasons Tolkien may have created down the track for a parting of the fellowship. There must have come a time when the group was considered too large...

How exactly did the Nazgul die (I am guessing when the one ring was destroyed they died)?

It's a good question. I guess their life force was tied up with their rings which were controlled by the...

I guess Aragorn gets up my nose a bit (is that blasphemy?). He's a bit haughty. Sure he's got the lineage but I think the blood's pretty thin by the time it gets to him and yet he carries on a bit. ...

I went back and read the Hobbit just recently, and found it strange i guess, coming back to it after the style of LOTR and the Silm. Being directly addressed by the author/narrator, and...
