More of an issue in the text, perhaps. [In reply to] Can't Post

In the films, however, the line "disguised as riders in black" rather implies that there are other available appearances. Here they may be disguised as glowly blue ghosts.

On Cervid names... [In reply to] Can't Post

Great summary of the Cervids!

I'd also add that the differences in common names for the larger cervids can be confusing. For example, what we call in North America a moose (Alces alces) is referred to as an elk in Europe, while what we call in North America an elk (or wapiti) is very similar in appearance to the European red deer.

That explain everything ! [In reply to] Can't Post

What I am calling a deer is an elk in North Amercia.
So it is an elk.
Ah...now I can go to sleep. Smile

Unseen cultures [In reply to] Can't Post

PJ and Co may be showing the audience that the civilisations of the non-human races are different from those of Men.

This really gives the impression that in the days before Men appeared, the old races rode into battle riding elks, boars and Wargs.

Let the Rohirrim have their horses. The Battle of Five Armies may end up looking like something we've never imagined.


From the makers of 'The Lord of the Rings' comes the sequel to Peter Jackson's Hobbit Trilogy -
'The War in the North, Part I : The Sword in the Tomb'.

I agree with you. [In reply to] Can't Post

Right now I desperately want to see the elves of mirkood and their fortress, in DoS.
I am completly geeking over Thranduil for the last four days.

A deer might be too small to sit on as well [In reply to] Can't Post

Visually, an elk works better. Smile

I share your pain [In reply to] Can't Post

I am already very excited about Thranduil and I am sure after I see the movie the wait for seeing Thranduil's Halls will be unbearable. I hope we get to see his sword, from the promo images it is all one piece of steel unique among the elven swords and has black etching. Just imagine the Mirkwood army in BOFA, the unique design of yet another elf armor reflecting their culture. We already have seen the Noldor and the Galadhrim and a hint of Mirkwood by seeing Legolas gold colored scalemail.

But wait [In reply to] Can't Post

to see how Lee Peace plays Thranduil, even with no lines of dialogue...you are in for a treat. Smile
