This is a thorough review of the LOTR Exhibition - contains huge chunks of spoilers for anyone wanting to see this Exhibition in the future, but NO spoilers for ROTK plotlines !!
An examination of the significance of the commonality of Tolkien's mother-less and father-less heroes.
He knows about Eru and the Valar, at least, but I have a nasty feeling he switched off before I got any further. Also, I must report a SUCCESS!!! I have persuaded Ed to read FOTR!! Joys ...
What if Faramir had taken Boromir's place in the Company?
Ever wondered what the character of Legolas is like? I mean beyond the movies? If so, check it out!
Read this paper to see why Andy Serkis should have won the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award.
TTT won't get any awards this year. So don't waste your time watching the ceremony.
Of course, I saw the movie. I cried like a baby when Gandalf fell and when Boromir was slain. I was touched. I truly was. I didn't even mind that Arwen was enhanced, (though I still begrudge Glorfindel being tossed aside!). In fact I didn't object to too many things....well, Galadriel turning into a Roman candle was a bit much and she spoke like they put Valium into their lembas....but other than that, I was content.
What did Tolkien use for his world? Where can it be found? Since I knew Tolkien wrote a well-recieved essay on Beowulf, I figured he'd taken more then just the stuff for his essay from the piece (Plus I had to relate the movie to something read in class)
What becomes of a true Tolkien follower.
Indiana Jones. Captain Kirk. Han Solo. The Road Warrior. Conan the Barbarian. These are the heroes who populated the silver screen for much of my youth. I loved them all. I still do. But they are no comfort to me now.
My grandpa was a huge fan of the books, except for the hobbit, which he found quite boring. When my mom was in middle school he made her read them. Of course she loved them. So, when I was in 6th grade my mom was going to make me read The Hobbit (before the movie was ever an idea), even though my grandpa said not to.
