There are one or two, though they are rare. There was one quite evil Elf in the Silmarillon but his name doesn't spring to my mind. And can you imagine Galadriel if she had taken the ring?

But I...

I'm pretty sure Gandalf did travel to Harad, or at least 'south', at least once. It is only to the east that he never went.

I very much fit into the 'world' category, and I love all the 'what ifs' and all that and theorising on stuff such as what would happen if Galadriel took the Ring, if Helm's Deep was lost, if there...

I would agree with this, although it is a delicate balance. Saruman the White, I should think, would be able to because Saruman the White is on par with Gandalf the White. However, by 'The Voice of...

Oh yes as well Andy Serkis as Smeagol (not Gollum). Although I thought it was fine him playing the part for some reason I didn't like the idea that his voice was exactly the same one's as Gollum's....

I agree, and I think that some characters, such as Gandalf, Saruman, Theoden and Samwise were superbly casted. The impression I get here is that most people are complaining about the actors...

I also saw the movies first, Macalaure, so let's try and answer some questions!



The movies were very important for me, because without the movies I would never have bothered to read Lord of...

Evil/Corrupted Dwarves

Like all the other races of Middle-earth, some Dwarves were not as 'good' in nature as the mainstream.

In 'The Hobbit' it is explicitly stated that there are 'evil Dwarves'. Also, during the war...

Although Bilbo wasn't exactly young in 'The Hobbit', either, if I remember correctly he was at least 50.

You know the idea of 'wizard parents' isn't so silly as it sounds, because after all in 'Queer Lodgings' in 'The Hobbit' Gandalf tells Beorn that Radagast is his cousin. I mean, that's a pretty clear...

The Witch-King's name is unknown, it's been lost for ages (and most certainly isn't 'Angmar'). Only one of the Nazgul's name (being Khamul) is known to us.

I can't remember the exact quote but I'm 99% certain that Tolkien stated that although Men [Men specifically, of course, the other races are all doomed to end, sadly] would face many new evils in the...

Even though Radagast can be deemed to failure, it has been suggested (although I'm not sure if Tolkien himself said so explicitly) that Radagast was responsible for the Eagles' coming at certain...

Although they were both pretty incorrect as far as the books were concerned, I truly loved both the Mouth of Sauron scene and Saruman's death scene. Christopher Lee truly at his masterful best!

Alternative scenario regarding One Ring's destruction

I was thinking the other day about how some of the Elves believed that when the One Ring was destroyed that the Three would become free of it's influence and their powers would still be (as opposed...

The 'dh' in Sindarin Elvish is pronounced as the 'th' in words such as 'then' or 'those'. In Welsh the equivalent is 'dd'. The letter 'ch' also appears in Sindarin, which is pronounced as the 'ch' in...

Fate of the Nazgul?

Hi! I was just wondering what would be the ultimate fate of the Nazgul after the destruction of the One Ring, do you think, or has Tolkien ever stated what it was.

Although it is generally...

I think you have to take the movies almost seperately from the books. They have to be enjoyed at their own level. Personally, although some bits of the films (normal and EEs) aggrivated me, I thought...
