More on films' departure from Tolkien

Though I understand the criticisms, I think the version of "Differences" I read was useful, and the re-write suggestions were mainly about form. I think that there are some general principles that exist in the books that are distorted or abandoned in the film, to the detriment of the latter. 

1.  Deliberation. The longest chapter in the book is The Council of Elrond. Those who have arrived at Rivendell seemingly by chance go over all of the facts that are known of the Ring. At the end, after Frodo says he will take the Ring, Elrond says, "If I understand aright all that I have heard . . . ." In other words, it's not a light decision, or one he had thought all along. It was arrived at by carefully analyzing all the facts. 

The other big delib…

Did Balrogs have wings?

The "Did Balrogs have wings?" debate has reached legendary (and to outsiders often comical) proportions. The books are ambiguous on the matter, but the movies follow the interpretation that they did have "wings of shadow". Could they fly? Did they even need wings to fly? Could they have had skeletal wings yet still be flightless?

Discussion has occurred as to whether the Balrogs had wings. Nothing has been decided conclusively, although the Balrog in the Peter Jackson film version of The Fellowship of the Ring(2001) was clearly winged, and did not fly.

The debate mainly comes from The Bridge of Khazad-dûm, a chapter in The Fellowship of the Ring. There are two references in this chapter.

A Balrog in The Lord of the Rings films.

Sauron VS Voldemort

If Sauron and Voldemort were in a fight, who would be victorious?

My Opinion: Sauron would slay Voldemort because he is a more powerful being. Voldemort's spells probably wouldn't work on Sauron because he's immortal. Besides, Sauron has the One Ring which, as seen in the FotR prologue, gives him supernatural strength so that he can send dozens of soldiers flying with a swing of his mace. Also, in the Hobbit as well as LotR, he is very good at controlling fire and using dark sorcery. Even though Voldemort can use cool spells, he is no match for the Dark Lord Sauron.

Smaug VS Nazgul dragons,Who wins?


Clearly, (at least in the movies and video games), Fell beasts were powerful creatures and were deadly offensive predators, especially with the Nazgûl on them. They could choose either to bite their prey (less attacking radius but increased damage) or swoop down on them (larger attacking radius), scattering enemies apart or outright crushing them. If a Fell beast snatched a soldier, they could easily fly high into the air and drop their hapless victim to his death far below. Fell beasts were feared for their ferocity and speed, and were known as the fastest creatures in Middle-Earth since Smaug, the last great Fire-Drake.


Being a fully-grown dragon, Smaug was both massive and powerful, possessing physical strength great en…

Was Túrin blind?

"Can I not, Can i not, Mablung?" he cried "But why no? For see, I am blind! Did you not know? Blind! Blind! Groping since childhood in a dark mist of Morgoth!"

Black Arrows

In Peter Jacksons Hobbit trilogy we see his depiction of the black arrow.

So what exactly is a black arrow and what do we know about it? If large iron arrows launched from seige devices are all that is needed to penetrate a dragons hide than what is the signifigance of a black arrow? Let's do a thorough analysis and come up with some rational, logical theories as to what exactly Jacksons black arrows are.

Balin: Girion, the lord of the city, rallied his bowmen to fire upon the beast. But a dragon's hide is tough, tougher than the strongest armor. Only a Black Arrow fired from a wind-lance could have pierced the dragon's hide. And few of those arrows were ever made. The store was running low when Girion made his last stand.

Dwarves are some of …

LOTR Actor Will Sing on "The Hobbit" Soundtrack

We're kind of excited about this news! Hypable reports that a much beloved actor from the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy will be contributing to the soundtrack for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, but can you guess who it is? If you guessed Billy Boyd, aka Pippin, give yourself a pat on the back!

Boyd will perform a new song titled “The Last Goodbye” for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ end credits. He co-wrote the song with Hobbit producers Phillipa Boyens and Fran Walsh. We will forever remember him as the adorable Pippin, but Boyd is actually the lead singer in a band named Beecake, which means he does have music experience!

Tales From The Black Gate Writing Project

Greetings, fans of Middle Earth!

Many tales have been told of the ever-menacing Black Gate, gateway to the land of Mordor, but there are more adventures still unwritten. We'd like to invite you to join with other Middle-earth fans to create an original story set in "The Dark Land" using Wikia's new interactive mapping feature!

Set in an impregnable stone and iron wall stretching from the Mountains of Ash in the north, to the Ephel Duath in the west, the Black Gate was built by Sauron during the Second Age. And there it would stand until the last epic battle of the War of the Ring.

You know the stories of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, but what could've happened in the Black Gate's shadow during the 60 years between these tales?
