ROTFL Ainur [In reply to] Can't Post

However awesome and important Glorfindel was in the Elder Days, in the FotR he's a minor character, though still awesome. In movie terms he's a nonentity, IMO.

Orcs and Goblins, yawn. They don't do anything much for me but I recognize that they matter to others. We all focus on different things in the books and movies.

I greatly respect your Tolkien knowledge and scholarship but we look at the movies differently. For me they are somewhat different versions of Tolkien's books and what works in the books may not work in the movies. So I expect, and even enjoy some changes to canon.

    I think part of it has more to do with principle and logistics than with love of Bolg per se. AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Oct 21 2013, 3:19am
