For the record I like the movies, I don't think they are on par with the books, but there is no way in the film media the entire set of books can be filmed. But I really like the movies a lot.

Why would Smaug need to land at all? I have never understood why he would need to land at all. Of course I am thinking that stealth bombers actually do better in the air than on land. I don't...

Osgiliath was strategically needed. In both WW's one of the main goals was to destroy bridges so the supplies and access would be cut off.

My main contention is that Denethor should have...

I was under the impression Tolkien sold all his rights to LoTR/Hobbit, so why is the estate getting anything at all? And if he did sell all his rights, what claim can they make to NL. Doesn't Saul...

I would like to add that POC was taken from a Disney ride. So if a Disney ride can inspire three movies, whats to say Tolkiens work in the appendicies couldn't make a good movie?

I have to agree with STW on one issue...even if Tolkien, his children or his estate disapproved of adaptations of LoTR, it's too bad. He had no rights, his children have no rights and his estate...

I disagree, totally. Gandalf was with the King of Gondor, not the Stewart of Gondor. And last time I checked, King out ranked Stewart. As for Aragorn, he could and would have the right to sit on,...

After reading this thread once again, I have to ask a serious question here, because the thread brought it to mind and for some reason I think I have been told this before.

I think there should be some passage of time. Once Bilbo gets comfortable with one or two dwarves another one or two show up. So he will be setting out tea and various goodies to eat, sits down and...

Arwen was the exception. Just on the other side. Going to Valinor would not change her situation at all. It would not heal her or change her pain.
