What was Sauron's plan for after he conquered Middle Earth?
Why did Sauron take half his power and put it into an easily-misplaced ring? Why didn't he just stay at full power?
What if Sauron didn't bother making a ring? Wouldn't that mean he could just keep fighting after Isildur cut his fingers off? And wouldn't that mean he would have won that battle?
Why didn´t elves just forge a bigger master ring to control the one ring?
Was Sauron the most powerful god there was? If not, why didn't the gods superior to him intervene? Were they content to just let Middle Earth be destroyed and thousands killed?
Why did Aragorn charge recklessly into battle right at the Black Gate? Was getting caught part of his plan?
Sauron wasn't a god. He was on the same level as Saruman/Gandalf. He gained power and knowledge from Morgoth to produce the One Ring which made him extremely powerful but only through the ring.
Last battle. They had staked everything on Frodo/Sam reaching Mt. Doom and hoped that them doing that battle would give them time to destroy the ring. It's why I was pissed to find out they cut the Mouth of Sauron bit in the Theatrical Release. It adds a lot more emotion to that final scene.
No, Sauran was from a higher rank than Saruman and Gandalf. There's no way any of the Wizards could have defeated Sauron, let alone Morgoth if he were still around.
The role of the Wizards was to assist and help Men, Elves and Dwarfs to defeat Sauron, because otherwise the gods didn't care about Middle Earth.
It was way to infiltrate into kings circle of 3 races presenting them rings of power and defeat them from within. Though plan went into shit. Elves saw through his bullshit and hide their rings, gnomes ended too stupid and were all eaten together with rings by dragons, and only humans kinda worked providing Sauron with Nazgul guards. So eventually Sauron ended with failure of plan and his soul trapped in the ring. Guy outsmarted himself.
CRASHING THIS REALM
WITH NO SURVIVORS
If Hackson is so money hungry why doesn't he make the Silmarillion into a 7 part flick?
Why doesn't Christopher Tolkien piss on his father's legacy and make more money?
Why didn't Morgoth just cuck middle earth?
Why is it called Middle Earth when it was clearly not underneath the ground?
Christopher Tolkien said that jackson will never be allowed to do anything with JRRs work ever again.
>'Without the cooperation of the Tolkien estate, there can't be more films': Peter Jackson won't be returning to Middle Earth for legal reasons
>The role of the Wizards was to assist and help Men, Elves and Dwarfs to defeat Sauron,
Because if they tried to do so by force, it would likely lead to one of them replacing sauron as the baddie of ME
Why did Sauron feel it necessary to go to battle himself? Was he in that desperate of a situation? It seemed as though the Elf and Human offensive was a Battle of the Bulge/ 1944 Ardennes Offensive sort of situation
i dont think so personally. even if he found a director/producer etc., C.Tolkien would be so hard pressed to keep everything to what his father saw it as, which simply wouldnt appeal to many people in the form of a movie.
C.tolkien was pissed that the costumes were made to look medieval, as opposed to the bright green Aragorn was supposed to be dressed in.
youre telling me we wont be getting more lotr media because hollywood is full of greedy old fuckwits??
atleast until C.Tolkien dies, and whoever takes over the Tolkien estate is willing to try again.
but at the rate things are going, Aragorn will be syrian and Arwen will be wearing a hijab, and Sauron will be a evil white man
IF A GODDAMN DRAGON WITH INVULNERABLE FUCKING SCALES CAN BE SHOT DOWN A GODDAMN EAGLE IS FUCKED
AND THEN THEY WOULD HAVE GIVEN THE FUCKING RING RIGHT TO SAURON
ALSO THE EAGLES DONT DO SHIT FOR ANYBODY
>Of the many spirits that descended into Arda at its beginning, there were those of lesser stature than the Valar (though they were still powerful) who were known as the Maiar. Each of the Maiar was attached to the 'people' of a particular Vala. So, for example, the Maia Ossë, as a spirit of the sea, belonged to the people of Ulmo, while Curumo, the Maia who came to Middle-earth as Saruman, belonged to the people of Aulë the Smith.
In the Third Age, there were still Maiar in physical form to be found in Middle-earth. The most important of these were Saruman, Sauron (originally also of Aulë's people), and Olórin, known as Gandalf, who belonged to the people of Manwë and Varda.
i could post a list of em all
>IF A GODDAMN DRAGON WITH INVULNERABLE FUCKING SCALES CAN BE SHOT DOWN A GODDAMN EAGLE IS FUCKED
>Battle of Five Armies
>Eagles fly straight through an army of orcs unharmed
Am i the only one who finds this weird?
>ALSO THE EAGLES DONT DO SHIT FOR ANYBODY
Except when they do do shit.
>Battle of Five Armies
>Eagles fly straight through an army of orcs unharmed
>Except when they do do shit.
they only helped what little they did because they owed gandalf a favor or something
But, but the Quad amputee troll, that was in the books? Right?
This scene from the latest Uber-Director's cut is touching.
>They were clothed in the bodies of old men, restricting their powers so that they would only assist to the peoples of Middle-earth and not seek domination like Sauron, who was also a Maia. By inhabiting the bodies of Men they were ordered by the Valar to assist the people of Middle-earth through persuasion and encouragement, not force or fear. Being clothed in the bodies of Men they also became susceptible to all the weaknesses of a physical body, they felt hunger, pain, greed, sorrow, joy, and all other emotions and pains of Men.
I agree. I wouldn't mind seeing an adaptation but fuck, I liked the Hobbit book but I would never ever rewatch the Hobbit films.
At best, the first was comfy and the second had charm (though no one agrees with me) but the third was shit.
Why did Sauron identify with the orcs of all the races in Middle Earth?
None, because The Lord of the Rings was easily one of the dullest franchise in the history of movie franchises. Each episode following the boy hobbit and his pals from the Shire as they fight assorted villains has been indistinguishable from the others. Aside from the bright imagery, the series only consistency has been its lack of excitement and ineffective use of special effects, all to make magic unmagical, to make action seem inert.
Perhaps the die was cast when Tolkien vetoed the idea of Spielberg directing the series; he made sure the series would never be mistaken for a work of art that meant anything to anybody, just ridiculously profitable cross-promotion for his books. The Lord of the Rings series might be anti-Christian (or not), but it's certainly the anti-James Bond series in its refusal of wonder, beauty and excitement. No one wants to face that fact. Now, thankfully, they no longer have to.
>a-at least the books are g-g-good though
The writing is dreadful; the book was terrible. As I read, I noticed that every time a character went for a walk, the author wrote instead that the character "stretched his legs."
I began marking on the back of an envelope every time that phrase was repeated. I stopped only after I had marked the envelope several dozen times. I was incredulous. Tolkien's mind is so governed by cliches and dead metaphors that he has no other style of writing. Later I read a lavish, loving review of The Lord of the Rings by the same George R.R. Martin. He wrote something to the effect of, "If these kids are reading The Lord of the Rings at 11 or 12, then when they get older they will go on to read George R.R. Martin." And he was quite right. He was not being ironic. When you read "The Lord of the Rings" you are, in fact, trained to read George R.R. Martin.
Wrong. Read the lost tales. One explains the background of the wizards in detail.
They were bound to the old man shape and limited in power because the last time the valar and maiar fought for real in middle earth they wrecked shit so hard that entire landmasses sunk into the sea.
I don't think he identified with them, but Morgoth created the orcs and when he was gone Sauron didn't see a reason to stop using them.
>ancalagon raises his head
>head is now above the atmosphere
Why didn't Sauron where a glove over the source of all his power?
Why didn't Sauron wear the ring up his ass?
i thought the official canon powerlevels was
sauron with ring
gandalf the white with ring
gandalf the white
saruman with ring (should be higher technically but the ring would have almost instantly consumed him because he was obsessed with it)
sauron no ring
gandalf the grey with ring
gandalf the grey
stop memeing you /v/edditor fuckwad. tom bombadil never does anything worth mentioning and is only powerful in his domain.
if he was truly as powerful as you say gandalf wouldnt have instantly passed on the idea of trying to get him to destroy the ring.
They were just useful slaves and cannon fodder
>tfw Tolkien/LotR might get targeted by the trigger warning crowd with accusations of racism
>tfw even if you have kids, by the time they were old enough to appreciate the movies or the books they'd have been fed a narrative that Tolkien was a racist bigot
You know on the one hand I despise his stubbornness but on the other I really admire his efforts to preserve and collate his father's work. I wonder if his children will continue the trend.
>implying Jackson hasn't already got the rights in all but writing
>implying he isn't biding his time
This is the point. EVENTUALLY. If Bombadil turns on him with all his wrath he will destroy Sauron with or without ring. But Bombadil would not because he is autist so his private paradise could be eventually destroyed one little piece by one over the years.
