Tolkien Summary


Explore the formative years of the orphaned author as he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a group of fellow outcasts at school. This takes him into the outbreak of World War I, which threatens to tear the “fellowship” apart. All of these experiences would inspire Tolkien to write his famous Middle-Earth novels.

I hope they don't downplay his religious and political attitudes, but they probably will.

But the world of middle-earth was built around the language. Hope they show his love of language

''If you really want to know what Middle-earth is based on, it's my wonder and delight in the earth as it is, particularly the natural earth.'' I'm so hyped for this!

The Road goes ever on and on,
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can.

If this film doesn't include CS Lewis, their debate over allegory, and the religious themes in their writings, it'll be a failure no matter how much money it makes.

Lord of the Rings > Game of thrones. Tolkien is the creator of all modern fantasy that we know today.

Tolkien died 14 years before I was even born and yet I don't know any author that has influenced me more.
Carl Sagan was right, time machines already exist. We call them "books".

Tolkien: My grim, morose experiences in life and the fictional mythos I created are separate and I insist you treat them as such
Hollywood: Okay lol but what if no? XD

I really hope they show his life as a philologist (now known as a linguist), because that was a huge part of his life and he is renowned in the linguistic world as the grandfather of conlangs.

Two connections between me and Tolkien.
1. I live 2 miles away from JRR Tolkien’s house in Leeds
2. My grandparents are friends with the great nephew of JRR Tolkien, Alan.

Professor Tolkien is one of my favourite authors. One of the many reasons I became a teacher. I hope this movie delivers.
