Du bist Isildurs Erbe, nicht Isildur selbst... Aragorn, Arathorns Sohn und Thronerbe von Gondor... (Barahirs Ring)
I think that if the Silmarillion were ever put on screen it should be a REALLY LONG series. That way, you can keep in a lot. Of course there would still be cuts, but in a series you could keep it pretty fat. (At least in my logic. I know about nothing of film making.)
Some are borne great... some achieve greatness... and some have greatness thrust upon them
Haha I met a lady who actually went to NZ for the ROTK premier and she said that she was DISAPPOINTED by the scenery. I've never talked to her since. <-- Wow. I think the natural beauty is so much more extraordinary than the CGI! (Though it is very good). The Lord of the Rings felt so real.
