Robin McDonaldHaving said that I don't know why someone wouldn't like the first movies as I thought they would be horrible and I was surprised how good they were.

From what I've read, Christopher Tolkien is pretty militant when it came to guarding his dad's vision. No compromise and little sense of humor. I suspect that the militant Arwen character and the comic relief dwarf- among other things- probably would have stuck in his craw.

Ten possible Tolkien source tales

While I don't trust Amazon to do justice to any of these, I've got to admit that the Numinor saga could be awesome if done right...

Johnny HyperspaceThey're going to want that bait, so I would guess it will revolve around Strider and events prior to LotR. A lot of Legolas and Gandalf in there. Probably Arwen stuff, too. Some Dunedain rangery stuff. Hunt for Gollum at some point. I doubt it will have anything to do with Tolkien's main writings, but will probably feature some appendix material.

I really hope this isn't it. A bunch of shots of a Viggo Mortenson look-alike tracking Gollum through the swamps isn't going to cut it.?
Just give me Beren and Luthien or the siege of Gondolin already.

Just confirmed.

To take place 'before the events of the Fellowship of the Ring'.

Which means what exactly? Are they going full Silmarillion here... or are we going to get a bunch of extrapolated material on the rim of Tolkien's actual writing? I'm half excited, more than half apprehensive...

I lost my mother to colon cancer six years ago. I never understood how grief can tear you apart before that day.

Don't try to rush yourself past the pain- it's part of existing and being human.

Bill the FishI watched The Princess Bride probably on a weekly basis for several years when I was a kid. It wasn't until I was in college when I finally rewatched it that I realized, ah shit, this movie's a comedy. I had taken everything at face value for years.

Dude-you fell victim to one of the classic blunders.

Or not. I think that The Princess Bride succeeds because the snark never overwhelms the inherent sweetness of the narrative. I took it in pretty naively as a kid, and still like it best that way.

Voice O. ReasonDoes Serenity count as a sequel to Firefly? ?If so, that's high on my list.

Dafuq?
Definitely X3 for me. It doesn't have the utter ineptitude of some of the films people have cited here (Highlander II)... but it was just so limp, sad, and utterly uninspired. I was heavily invested in the character arcs from X2... and seeing Ratner's slimy pustulant essence all over them was sickening.

No FaceDoes anyone else find Thor's ongoing familial loyalty to Loki to be strangely affecting?

I love it, but I also love the way they played with it in this movie, with the deep conversation about how they are going different ways and how that actually seems to touch Loki, but then Thor pulls the rug out from under him... great stuff.

Yeah, brilliantly done.
It's also a good indicator of the pay-off from the multi-film approach. They wouldn't have been able to do it with such a light touch, and yet so effectively, if the mythology wasn't so deep. For all the flaws of films like Dark World, they paved the way.
