So I started at 7:30 and I’m watching all three hobbit films and all three Lotr films (extended editions obviously) so by my calculations I should be finished by about 5 am, taking into account toilet breaks and getting food.
Suddenly, light started shining through the window!
The window, which hanged on the wall, softly letting its curtains dance around the room, suddenly brought a bright light into the house.
Quite unexpectedly, light shined through the window in the room, which was less surprising when you think about the fact that's what windows are for.
Light shined through the window abruptly.
abruptly, usually means unexpected, or sudden. For instance, if your mother picked you up from school after telling you twice about doing that, it would not be abruptly. However, if someone were to tell you your house burned down and your parents were dead without telling you to sit down first, it would very much be called, abruptly.
Samwise: means “Half-wise” or “Half-wit.” He is Stupid Gamgee
Faramir: Boromir’s name means “steadfast jewel”, but Faramir’s name just means “sufficient jewel.”
Denethor took one look at baby Faramir and thought “eh I guess he exists or whatever” which is very in character
2. Characters who Have Way Too Many Names
Examples include Aragorn son of Arathorn son of Arador heir of Isildur Elendil’s son, descendant of Numenor, Thorongill, Eagle of the Star, Dúnadan, Strider, Wingfoot, Longshanks, Elessar, Edhelharn, Elfstone, Estel (”Hope,”) The Chieftain of the Dúnedain, King of the West, High King of Gondor and Arnor, and Envinyatar the Renewer of the House of Telcontar
Wait I’m sorry did I say “examples” plural
Cuz that was all one guy
3. Characters whose parents must’ve been prophets
-Frodo means “wise by experience.” His story is about becoming wise by experience -A lady named Elwing turns into a bird (geddit)
4. Characters whose families were so lazy that they copy-pasted the same first half of a name onto multiple people
Éomund/Éowyn/Éorl Elladan/Elrohir/Elrond/Elros/Elwing/Elenwë/Elendil/Eldarion (the laziest family)
5.Characters whose Names are Expertly Designed so that Newbies can’t Remember Who is Who and Feel Sad
All the people mentioned in number 4 Celeborn, Celegorm, Celebrimbor, Celebrian All the rhyming dwarf names in the Hobbit Sauron and Saruman Arwen and Éowyn
6. Name so nice, you say it twice
Legoas Greenleaf: Legolas’s first name means “Greenleaf” in elvish. Legolas is Greenleaf Greenleaf (thranduil really likes green leaves ok)
King Théoden’s name means King in Rohirric. Tolkien decided to name his king “King.” All hail King King
this is what the fanbase means when we say tolkien was a creative genius with language
I never understood why people cared so much about their dumb hobbits until I got dumb hobbits myself. I've only had Frodo and Sam for a day and a half, but if anything happened to them, I would kill everyone in this room and then myself.
Have you ever thought about how in the Fellowship of the Ring...
In the film’s prologue, Galadriel narrates the forging of the Great Rings. But there’s a really cool hidden message in how the shots are set up…
The shots of the elves only show them looking at their rings, nothing else…
The shots of the dwarves only show them looking at their rings, nothing else…
But when we get to the nine rings given to men “who above all else desire power”….the men don’t look at their rings. They look straight into the camera.
And while other shots are composed to make you look at the magic rings, everything in this shot is designed to make sure you look back into the eyes of the man in the center.
Because these men are looking at you, the audience: because you are one of them.
It’s a reminder that you are also a member of the race of men, and before you call The Nine weak-willed and evil you must remember that you are just as fallible and could be corrupted by power just as they were…that their flaws are only a dark reflection of your own flaws, and the flaws common to all of mankind
Whimsical hobbit house built by Stuart Grant. Located near Tomich, Scotland, he constructed his own real-life Hobbit house with a magical-looking outside and impressive interior. Built in the 1980s, the exterior of the home is completely covered in moss and has a large rounded door. Low ceilings and cozy furnishings make you feel like you’re living among the underground. Outside you can enjoy a cheery pond and greenhouse.
