And I follow this thread, so I suppose I count.
Is the last Hobbit movie still watchable in theaters? I'm tired of waiting for the blu ray to see it again.
Resurrecting this thread. After initially being disappointed with the Battle of the Five Armies, I watched the extended edition and there are some cool scenes. The attack on Dol Goldur was cool, and the Thanduil battle sequences were fun too.
Lately I've been doing a lot of reading on Thranduil, Oropher, and the figures of the first age. Tons of shit I didn't know about.
Also, read a thing about how Tolkien might have intended Allatar and Pollando to have actually succeeded in the East instead of failing, which is the prevailing opinion.
Been reading Lotr for a while now. Rohan just got to Minas Tirith
Books are fucking awesome
I'm just past the part where the Ents go to Isengard
My favourite LotR character is Tom Bombadil. So cryptic and his existence has never been explained. Also, he wasn't such a meaningful character despite his power.
Bombadil was cool.
That whole part with the Barrow downs and the Wights was cool.
I love how badass Faramir is in the books
King Theoden too
Also I love the part with Shelob. It has always scared the shit out of me when I was reading the book as a child.
Yeah, pretty badass.
Total darkness, and for a long time too
Correction: I am at the part where the Fellowship arrives in Rohan (or whatever that castle is). I can't remember offhand.
Aragorn, Gimli, and Legolas?
Isn't Theodens castle/hall Medusheld or something?
I still skip past that part when I rewatch it. It's like my worst nightmare come to life.
Tom Bombadil is interesting but there's just not enough information on him. He's obviously a Maiar or greater as he was in the world before the Elves and before Melkor though.
And I hated that snake Grima. I suppose it's the character I despise the most next to Gollum.
Yeah, it's a shame that Tolkien never really explained Bombadil's being. He would have been a great asset to the fellowship, although I'm not entirely convinced he would ever agree to fight.
Is Shelob the first spider?
No, no I guess the first was Ungolianth.
Eats light, right?
