Who will make the people viewing list? I can, in no one else wants to, but seeing as I am putting together and receiving questions and such, it would be fantastic if somebody else were to PM others.

I'm willing to fill in anywhere needed, if no one else wants to. I've got plenty of time on my hands.

At any rate, I definitely think that Maxie has enough on her plate already, without having to PM everybody. O.o

Count me in! I will totally try to watch the EEs on those dates. I can't wait! Never get tired of watching the films. And everyone should see the extended editions; they have really amazing parts in them. #Eowyn's soup XD

The weekend for watching Fellowship of the Ring draws near. I have been looking online for study guides but they all compare the books to the movies so are of no help. How many questions do you have so far for Fellowship, Maxie?

What sort of questions are you looking for, by the way? I really am not sure what you need.

Your question is a good one, OneSizeFitsAll. I thought of this one....How come the ring-wraith did not know the Hobbits were hiding under the tree roots? They were merely inches from each other.

tarc, I agree that it doesn't have to be questions. Also, it occurred to me that some participants might not have read the movie discussion threads. If we don't have enough questions, why not use some of those that have already been discussed? Our perspectives might change knowing what we're looking for before watching the movies again.

It is true what you say, NenyaGold, about our perspectives changing. Every time I watch LotR I see something different and have different thoughts.

I think this question has been discussed but it is a good one....How would the Fellowship have differed if Faramir, not Boromir was sent to Rivendell and became part of the quest?

Good questions, Lindarielwen! I will add them into my stock. We now have a total of four or five. Keep them coming!

Lindarielwen, that question was discussed at length but not in the Movie forum. It's going to get a bit messy to try discussing a few things at a time in one thread so I would suggest making one for each subject or question, prefixing the title with 'FOTR Marathon:' and so on. Got that Maxie?

I'm thinking there are some questions which apply to the whole trilogy so we could do them after the rest.

I think L_S brought up that question somewhere. Should there be a limit as to how many questions per movie? And how about just an open forum as well for each movie?

OK, all of the questions that I have so far seem top apply only to FotR. Would it crowd the movies forum if there are so many threads? I currently have six questions, but I am expecting more. And that is just for FotR.

Nope, as long as each subject has the prefix like I said they should be easy to find. Are you going to post them the day before we watch? So we know what to look for.

Should we limit the number of questions for each movie? The more people who join us, the longer it will take to answer and discuss the questions...well we can keep talking after we watch the movies I guess. Should Maxie post the questions soon so we can see what we have?

I have just PM'd them to tarc, but I can post them in here, as well. I will put them up a few days before we watch, two at the most, so we can be prepared!

Here are the questions:

Fellowship of the Ring CoE Questions

1-The spirit of Tom Bombadil is present in the film. Discuss.
2-What aspect of the film helped most in taking you to Middle Earth?
3-Do the characters change (perspective etc) during the movie? If so, in what way? Which characters are flat and which are dynamic?
4-What is the purpose of Gandalf’s death?
5-How come the ring-wraith did not know the Hobbits were hiding under the tree roots? They were merely inches from each other.
6-How would the Fellowship have differed if Faramir, not Boromir was sent to Rivendell and became part of the quest?
7-Best acted scene?
8-Best portrayal of a character?
9-Changes to book-good and bad.
10- Which character’s qualities do you most need?
11-Most important theme?

The Two Towers CoE Questions:

1-Why is Grima crying in the balcony scene?
2-Should we feel sympathy for Gollum?
3-Best acted scene?
4- Best portrayal of a character?
5- Changes to book-good and bad?
6-Which character’s qualities do you most need?
7- Most important theme?

I think the book questions should not be included. We have already talked about this not being a book-movie comparison project.

Those seem like enough questions for the first movie.

Agreed L. Generally it will be about how the story is portrayed rather than the internals of the story.
Yeah, I wouldn't post the questions until we decide how they're going to appear. We can't have 11 threads, that's a bit much. I was also thinking they should not be seen until the day before. I'll PM you a few ideas Maxie.
