Approaching Tolkien: ‘The Silmarillion’

A Tolkienist's Perspective

(Above: This is my last attempt in trying something like this … I promise!)

– The ultimate reading experience

This is the real deal. Forget what you’ve read in ‘The Hobbit’ or ‘The Lord of the Rings’ (actually, it would be wise to remember severything), cleanse your mind of any thoughts, sit down and start (or try) reading ‘The Silmarillon’

Complicated book, complicated (and long) blog post.

Beren and Luthien song- by J. R. R. Tolkien

Just a little quick post for right now. Also the new book Beren and Luthien is coming in June 1, 2017, and I just wanted to make a quick post.

The song was sung by Aragorn in the Fellowship of the ring, book 1, chapter 6.

Waiting for the book? Well, if you own the Silmarillion*, you can just find the tale of Beren and Luthien in the Silmarillion as well.**

But we can all conclude that this Beren and Luthien book will be more specific and will possibly give us more detail than The Silmarillion gave us.

*I don’t own The Silmarillion yet, but it should come somewhere next week or something.
**All posts about Beren and Luthien will go in the Silmarillion category.

Hobbit trilogy marathon~ Desolation of Smaug

Hey, again. This is day 2 of my Hobbit movie marathon. Today I’m watching Desolation of Smaug. Time for another movie review. But first I want to say that I have swimming today, so I hope I can finish this movie today, just like I finished An unexpected journey last night.

I really like this movie a lot. My favorite character in the movie is Smaug. Smaug is yet another CGI (Computer graphics imagery) character. Dragons are a really popular, so I can see if Smaug is a really popular character in the trilogy AND book.

Oh, almost forgot. Adding Legolas and the new character Tauriel was the best choice for this film in my opinion. I thought it was funny when Legolas insults Gloin’s son, Gimli. I hope Gloin’s and Legolas forget the insult before The fellowship of the ring.

Overall, it is yet another masterpiece done by Peter Jackson.

I give this movie 10/10.

Tomorrow, Battle of the five armies.
