Good old Steven Jackson. Don't know why but that just strikes me as funny so now I am laughing.
My destiny is riding again, rolling in the rain, unwinding in the wind. My destiny is fighting again, secretly unwinding..what it was I was supposed to say...to say to you today.

This isn't really a question, but someone told me that when they saw the trailer they thought the spider that Bilbo is hiding from was Shelob. Okay, that might've been me... *mumbles to self*
If anyone had happened to look out of a window on the east side of the palace, they might have noticed two figures in the darkness, dancing in a square bordered by living plants, out of time with the dancers inside but perfectly in time with each other.

No it isn't Shelob but they are related, all being descended from the original big baddie spider Ungoliant, Lighteater, Gloomweaver, destroyer of the Two Trees, conqueror of Melkor and so on.

While in the movie theater, I overheard someone asking if that's a Balrog attacking Erabor, when it was actually Smaug. Really? You can't tell the difference between a dragon and a balrog? *shakes head*

Hmm, my sister asked me why the dwarves wanted to return to Erebor.

My next door neighbor asked if Thorin was a Hobbit. Then she asked why Bilbo didn't wear shoes.
Do not meddle in the affairs of Dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

One time I heard a girl in class talking about "tall Hobbits..." Turns out she meant dwarves.

"What do you mean Thranduil isn't dark and super evil?"

Good MORNING!! This from a girl who has read the whole LOTR trilogy and the Hobbit and is attempting to read the Silmarillion!! I was so ashamed of her. Especially when she followed up a comment of mine with, "Who's Celeborn?" *facepalm*

I almost died laughing there, Miri!

This one's more books than movie, but still pretty bad:

"Oh, you're reading The Lord of the Rings? That's one of those J.K. Tolkien books, right? She really should write more books like that."

Nah...I only WISH I was kidding.

W-e-e-e-l-l, the surnames almost rhyme, the first initials are J - and back when the LotR films were in the movie theaters, the bookshops in Germany had huge stacks of both the current HP book and various editions of LotR.
And JKR declared that JRRT had very definitely influenced her. So people who are not such JRRT nerds as we are may be excused for becoming confused occasionally.

Well, after months and months of persistence, my brother and I finally convinced our mom to read The Hobbit. So today, she was reading the part where Bilbo sneaked down to Smaug, and caught him napping. She asks me "Okay, so there are all these axes and weapons on the walls. Why didn't Bilbo just stick Smaug in the chink in the armor?" Sigh. "Mom. Really??? Do you really think that a Hobbit would have the strength to kill a dragon?" And she was complaining the other day that it was illogical and silly.

Oh dear. I think that The Hobbit is probably as far as my mom will get... She is nearly done with it now, and she said that she had a hard time keeping up with the Battle of the Five Armies. Sigh. I hoped that when she read The Hobbit, she would be interested enough to read LotR, but it doesn't look like that's going to happen

"Wait, why's Legolas in the Hobbit?" (Coming from people who DID NOT READ ANY OF THE BOOKS) "Wasn't he in Lord of the Rings? How is he here?"
*sigh*

I was watching the last Hobbit movie in theaters, and at the end, after they showed the beginning of FOTR, a girl in the front jumped up and said, "Wait, that's it? What happens next??"

Um, I don't know, THE LORD OF THE RINGS?
I'm learning Elvish (Can't decide between Sindarin and Quenya). I still suck at it. This language is HARD... The first thing I memorized how to say in Quenya was "Go kiss an orc."

To be fair the first one is kind of a fair question. He's not mentioned by name so...

I got one:
"Is Tauriel meant to be there?" Pffft
and also:
"Is the Hobbit better than LOTR?" Pffft

*while watching the scene where Bard kills Smaug*

"Woah, that dude's got skills. He's the archer from Mirkwood, right? Legolas?"

(on the outside)- "Shut up."

(on the inside)- *screams of anguish*
