Thread: Daydreams of other filming possibilites
I would like to see Faramir as the captin working with his men.
Battles can be seen in Ithillian/Minas Ithil/Minas Morgul, Osgiliath, and some skirmishes against Cosairs of Umbar.
Balance the episodes with some that detail life of a soilder, etc.
It would be a much more ambitious project because Tolkien doesn't flesh out much of any of this.
Granted, a project like this, with little to go on from the source material would either enthrall fans or enrage. But I for one would like to see it.
But a 30-min or hour long show every now and then, to me, doesn't seem in the spirit of Tolkien. His stories always turned out to be epic adventures, and you really can't encapsulate his genius and his world in a tv show or miniseries.
There is something magical by reading something in a book, you know
