    *** Official "THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO" Discussion Thread

    Has anyone seen the film and read the book? The book was fantastic and is really worth reading. How is the adaptation? It is a fairly lengthly book... Seb

    *** Official "LORD OF THE RINGS: THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING" Discussion Thread

    The history of the Three Rings: Gil-Galad has Vilya and he passes it to Elrond when he dies, and Elrond bears it until the end of the age. Galadriel receives Nenya and bears it the entire age, and the third ring is given to Cirdan the Shipwight at the Grey Havens. When Gandalf passes over the...

    Paul, I agree with you. In all the action of the film, a lot of the details or explanations had to have been either cut or not included for time constraints. But what I would have given for some conversations between the Fellowship. For example, after leaving Moria, on the way to Lorien, I...

    While on Weathertop the Ringwraiths also did not know how Frodo would react to their attack and so when he showed defiance and willing resistence to them they were dismayed. Throw in Aragorn and their fear of fire and the fact that they were not all there, the name of Elbereth, they did the...

    Aragorn is not ugly per se. At Bree and as a Ranger he masked his true identity and the power he had. His appearance was that of a person living in the wild, and who at first glance would put someone off. As Frodo said, "Look foul and feel fair." Seb

    Why so much excitement over LOTR?

    I am a huge fan of both the book and the film and its not the best film ever but it is the best book ever. (IMO) Seb

    Matt, I was referring to the film. Ah yes, I actually remember both of those scenes now. The long chat Gandalf and Elrond have, and Strider mentioning it to Merry, Pippen and Sam. I feel better now, except I had better go see the film again, I am forgetting parts already! Seb

    One other thing I've just noticed rereading the trilogy. I'm just beginning Chapter 1 of Book II, Many Meetings and Frodo has just come to in Rivendell and Gandalf tells him that he just barely made it. Correct me if I'm wrong but they made absolutely no mention of the fact that Frodo almost...

    New Line Petition for Fellowship of the Ring Director's Cut DVD

    I'll sign that petition! I'm fairly confident that we can expect this from New Line anyways but it can't hurt. Seb

    EDIT: Craig beat me to it but here's my post anyways. Seth and all, The attacks on The Prancing Pony and Buckland although not simultaneous, did occur on the same night.

    With regards to the Nazgul's constant appearances in FotR: In the books, the Nazgul interact with a lot of other people in addition to Frodo and Co. which was left out of the film. A rider questions the Gaffer just as Frodo and Sam are heading out of Hobbiton. There are loud cries in the...

    "Men With Brooms" - a new Canadian Classic?

    I saw this trailer before Lord of the Rings and laughed the whole way through. Has it opened yet? If not when will it open? I especially liked Leslie Nielson, "Purely medicinal, of course." I can't wait to see it. Seb

    Please help me help a theatre manager!

    During my second viewing of FotR I noticed that audio dropouts occured after leaving Moria. It lasted for about twenty minutes, the only reason I didn't get up to complain was because I didn't want to miss anything in the movie. I also seemed to be the only person who noticed them, none of the...
