    The Pope thread in this forum went way off topic into Dr. Rock's 'smile' and the Lord of the Rings movies. A while back, I saw a very funny take-off of the LOTR movies and juts have to share the link with you.

    Lord of the Rings, Really Short Edition

    Enjoy! :lol:

    I guess I do! I didnt know it but I do now. I will ask Mr Mark about it. Try it again. I think my box might have been full. IF that doesnt work then I will email Mr Mark.

    I love that everytime I see it. Even though I read the books and have watched the movies an uncountable number of times, THAT idea never occurred to me.

    Someone had a good (sort of) explanation for why that wasn't done, but I can't remember it.

    Ummm....you Tolkienites might remember?

    Maybe because the Ring wanted to be found

    well, gandalf had his own reasons for refusing to take the ring in the first place. then he got separated from the company way short of their destination, so...

    Remember the Nazgul....

    Even if every single eagle attacked, I doubt they could deal with the 9. The only way they got in was through surprise and the armies were already engaged and pulled away from Mount Doom.

    remember the council didn't know anything about the winged nazgul at rivendell. but I think the idea of riding into mordor on an eagle would've been discounted for the same reason anyway - being way too obvious.

    That was such a freakin' awesome trilogy. I felt such a void when I was done reading it....I wanted more.

    I was the most sad to see that the whole Shire bit at the end of the third book wasn't put in the movie. But I understand the time constraints. I think Jackson did a great job anyway.

    I'd love to see him do the Hobbit as well.

    Good news TAG! JRR Tolken has writen other books on middle earth, and his son, Christopher, has compiled a lot of his notes into other books.

    you might like The Simmerilian and Return of the Shadow. The first is by JRR,and is about middle earth several thousand years before the first war of the ring. Return of the Shadow is a compilation of JRR tolkens notes and alternate chapters, compiled and w/ commentary by Christopher Tolken. :D

    I actually have the Silmarillion and have tried to read it. It just didn't do the same for me that the LOTR trilogy did. I haven't tried the other though.

    The Silmarillion is a tough read. While the words were written by J. R. R. Tolkien, Christopher J. R. Tolkien is responsible for the editing. He had to sort through often several versions of the same story to compile the accounts contained in The Silmarillion. The finished product lacked the polish that J. R. R. Tolkien would have given it had he still been alive. My personal recommendations for further Tolkien reading would be Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Pearl, Sir Orfeo (they are contained in a single book), Roverdam, and Tales from the Perilous Realm (a collection of his most well-known modern fairy tales).
