It is nice to know [In reply to] Can't Post

that I am not the only one who feels that way! I loved the bit you added about Gandalf bonking heads with his staffWink I bet that is what he did to make Bilbo tell him the whole story about finding the ring!

If the film is true to the book, you won't see it happen. [In reply to] Can't Post

Not that I expect the filmmakers to be faithful, but in the book, the fatalities that concern you are tossed off as an afterward in just one sentence. An impressively brutal move on Tolkien's part. I don't think Jackson & Co. have the guts for that.
