I had actually forgotten about them until [In reply to] Can't Post

we saw them in the movie - what a great treatment of an otherwise 'throwaway' book-moment!

That's what PJ-ism means! [In reply to] Can't Post


PJ only needs hints to develop action scenes.
Remember the warg-attack in TTT?

Oh, and sometimes he doesn't need even references. That is, when when his imaginations fly high. Talking especially about the falling skulls in ROTK-EE. Wink

As for the stone-giants, I pretty much love the fact that they were included but the scene gets incredibly silly when we find out they are actually on one of the giants' knee. That's pure mumbo-jumbo. Till that, it was an awesome and breathtaking scene!!!

I am the Grandson of Samwise Gamgee. My grandpa loved Frodo uncle and Frodo uncle loved his pet, Smeagol. So I am named Smeagol Bagginsess! Ain't I cute?
