Do you mean Gimli?

I tink Tolkien is timeless, but there are many similar authors now. The fact that he created a whole language shows what intellectual capacity he had. I read an autobiogry of him recently. It was quite amazing. Also C.S.Lewis, both were exceptional men, with extremly interesting lives, not what I expected them to have been like at all.

yes definitely we now have many books on fantasy and scifi to choose from. Can you imagine living in the 1600s and only having the books they had back then? Think of the huge wealth of books we have available right now to us!

Christopher Lee was talking in an interview what it was like to be a reader back when the LOTR series was being released, that you had to wait eons in between books and that it was a hard thing to do. You read book 1 then had to wait to see what happened in book 2 ... sort of like us with the Harry Potter books smile

the scene where Boromir redeems himself is so sad, and honourable.

Gee, Lisa -- you're really good with quotes! I think it was nice of Aragorn to be so kind to Eowyn by pointing out to her that it would be pointless to pursue anything between them. That's one of the things I like about Aragorn; he is respectful of others and humble.

And in the extended version, there is a definate connection between Faramir and Eowyn. I thought they made a lovely couple.

Megan, I agree - those were beautiful scenes and I do get a lump in my throat when I watch them.

I could not live without books. I love the added bits at the end of Tolkiens, the bits he added at the end so you could find out what happened to legolas and gimli for example. His attention to detail was utterly amazing! one wonders how he lived in reality as well!

Yes he built an incredibly dense world, he had the languages mapped out, the history, everything smile

Aragorn really did have to say something to Arwen - she was standing in front of him saying "I love you". So he was letting her down gently, saying "I know you think you feel that way, but you barely know me, and my heart is taken."

I'm pretty sure the Faramir-Eowyn match is in the book, and it does seem very fitting.

Besides the death of Boromir, I thought one of the other most moving parts in the movie was when Faramir was riding his steed toward Osgiliath and certain doom. It made tears well up in my eyes. He was so unloved by his father.
