Thread: Alright fellas
I love the films as well. I'm definitely a ringnut geek as I have all the extended editions and believe me, I've watched them extensively.
In terms of fantasy and films I also love the Narnia Chronicles and had them to read to me at a very young age.
I've read these forums a bit already. I was particularly interested in the arguments for religious presence in the books and Tolkien's dislike of allegorical claims in his story. I'm personally a Christian and have actually read "Finding God in Lord of the Rings" although I'd argue that it's a book that contains Christian themes or elements that Christians can pick out rather than it being allegorical.
Gandalfs Beard, Beren, Show, Barrel the pony (if that's right?) and a few others look like very interesting debaters.
I look forward to chatting with you all!
Glad to have another young person on here!
How old are you then Beren?
Go to the section about the Silmarillion, and click on p. 2 of the "How many movies..." forum. That's where it all happened....hilarious
