I am proud to say that on my other Tolkien blog, Gandalf Tea Wednesday, I finished making Movie reviews on the Lord of the rings trilogy. I’m also finished with the review for the Fellowship of the ring book volume, but I don’t want to post it on this blog until I’m finished with the other two volumes.
I will post the movie reviews tomorrow.
Also my review for the Fellowship of the ring book volume will be posted on the other blog, but not this one yet.
I thought Frodo was a human, and Gollum was a shriveled old creature who wanted to be alone, but helps Frodo by giving advise. Later some of the enemies men (human) can and arrested him aggressively. I thought instead of a ring needing to be destroyed, I thought a war was going on, and the enemy needed all the rings to be fully powerful. I thought the Lord of the rings was a group of people who owned a magic ring, and are the primary enemy of the enemy. I thought the Movie had an Eragon theme to it.
Now I know that Frodo’s a Hobbit, and Gollum is a shriveled old Hobbit like creature who wants the one ring for his own. Now I know the men who attacked Gollum are Faramir and his men in the Two Towers. Now I know that the one ring is the most deadly artifact in all of Middle-earth, and the war is to find the ring and make Middle-earth vulnerable, and Sauron nerds the one ring to have all of his strength back. I now know that Sauron is the Lord of the rings (Wait. So the book’s actually called Sauron?) And it has a Lord of the rings theme to it.
As you all know, I am a huge Tolkien fan. So I follow the Hobbit tag on my reader, and I came across a post from GlorytoGodAlone. It is a picture of Thorin Oakenshield, and a quote he said while he was dying. I can’t reblog on my kindle, so I just copied the image. Here it is:
After I read this post, I remembered a verse from Proverbs.
Wisdom is more precious than jewels, and all your desires can’t equal it.
– Proverbs 3:15
I know it’s talking about songs and food over gold, but please bear with me. It would be an even merrier place if we place Wisdom and God over Gold.
