Has anybody else seen this? What do you think? Funny? Stupid? Over the top? So-so?
Well, it's LOTR related - so here you go. It's 18 minutes long, mind.

LOTR - Arwen Books

The Lord of the Rings Musical in London:

Posted by dawnintheforest on 04.11.2008 at 5.50.pm
Current Location: London
I went to see the LOTR musical last night in London.
I came expecting an amazing set, amazing costumes, and really cool technical effects. I also came expecting a certain "cheese-factor", as this is a serious drama of about 1300 pages (referring to the book, in case you're feeling slow) crammed into 3 hours - not to mention put to song!

What I got was more or less what I expected, yet so much more! The set and everything truly was worth the money all on its own. The acting was good, and so was the singing. And there was definitely a lot of lines delivered meant to be dramatic or neutral (the point is, not meant to be funny) that I softly laughed at when hearing.
One of the things I loved the most about the show, which I wasn't sure of upon arrival was that it is a straight adaptation of the book(s) and not of the Peter Jackson movies. So although they had to cut TONS, and change lots, there were many scenes that were truer to the books or included that the movies were/did not.
There were a couple songs I really liked straight away, like "The Road Goes On", "Lothlorien", and (especially, think it might be my favorite) "Now and For Always". And the rest are growing on me as I listen to the soundtrack right now.

I'm a huge LOTR fan, so it's possible that I'm biased in my impression of the musical. But I really recommend seeing it!
The London show closes some time in July 2008, so hurry up and go see it if you're in town (or can get yourself in town)!!!

This it totally non LotR related but that's one of the things Beleriand Realm is for! *giggle* I'm feeling a bit better today and also very bored so I decided to prove that _grayswandir_ is not, as she mentioned in her journal when posting this meme, the last person to post it. Since my flist is a bit on the short side, I thought that more people would see it here. Hopefully, it will be a fun challenge and give everyone a better idea of my taste in movies (though I had to leave off a couple because I have a lot more than 15 favorites!) Some of these should be really easy, some not so much.
Anyway... here is the 15 Favorite Movie Quotes Meme.

Hey, folks! A few days ago, I posted a couple of LotR-related riddles in my journal, but I haven't had anyone come up with the answers yet. I figured I'd better give you guys a shot at them. ;) Sorry to those who see this twice!

The Hobbit

I don't know if this has been discussed yet...but are they making a movie out of the hobbit?? I heard rumors that they were. If they are what are your thoughts?

I think it would be interesting to see how that would turn out.

I'm sorry if this has already been discussed

Here's a new query of mine:

Where can I find reliable information on Elvish? Is there anybody out there who has time to point me in the right direction? I want to know not only words, but how to write them in the correct script!

I would so grateful for your help!
