You don't think the Valar would have or could have blessed the Hobbits with immortality at that point?

Sam Sails to the West....

In 61 FA, Sam sails into the West to the Undying Lands. How do you think he was met? What do you all think might have happened then? Did Frodo, Gandalf, Bilbo, Elrond, and/or Galadrial meet him there? I'm curious....

So, I should put down The Hobbit, which I am currently reading and kind of start over; starting with the Silmarillion right? Then what after Sil Part II? "The Ring of Morgoth"?

Oh, BTW, thanks Steve for the input.

What Book would I Read....

...If I wanted read about the evants and happenings in Dol Guldur? I have been reading around the Net about the White Council and such. I have been reading about how Sauron, after his defeat by the last alliance went to Dol Guldur and how the Mirkwood got its name from the shadow of evil from Sauron...

the implication that WK would have wiped up Gandalf is absurd. I can't agree more... I liked the Theoden bit. Actually a highlight for me. He did a much better job of it than Aragorn did at the Gates. Steve I liked the Theoden pep talk too. I also liked the Aragorn pep talk before Battle of the Mor...

The Moment You Hated The Most...

We all know that while the movies are based on the books, it's getting more and more difficult to compare the two; especially as I read further and further the trilogy. I picked it up after finishing The Hobbit a few weeks ago. I just see so much difference and so much that was omitted from the movi...

I realize that I'm a year late in chiming in here; but I think one of the reasons this video is a bit on the weirder side is becasue it was done in the 1960's...

It. Needed. The. Scouring. Of. The. Shire. 'nuff said. We all knew after seeing the theatrical version that it wouldn't make it in. And as soon as we saw Grima pull the knife on Orthanc we double-knew. The Scouring of the Shire is too complex for this (any?) film adaptation. I think that the scene ...

Let's go by the actual book Ug. Definitely. Why in the world does PJ have the Witch King break Galdalf's staff? THe only answers that I can come up with make NO sense. It also draws an erroneous parallel between Saruman, whose staff was broken when he was defeated and Galdalf whose staff is broken ...

Sam, That was a very astute reply. I believe you're right. I read LotR about 15 years ago and sometimes my memory gets clouded with PJ's adaptation. I'm rereading the Sil currently and I hate to go back to LotR for any reference. I don't want to ruin my momentum. My apologies. Being a Gandalf the Wh...

If The WitchKing had....

Actually slain Gandalf (perish the thought) as he was about to do after he shattered his staff before the Rohirrim showed up, Would Gandalf had been sent back? He was sent back after his fateful battle with Durin's Bane as Gandalf the White. he was sent back because he hadn't finished his task. Woul...

I was also wondering how long it took the forces of good to get to the Black Gate from Pelennor Fields to fight the Battle of Morannon.
