No, I mean they think I can't possibly like things like LotR because I seem emo...
Basically the same thing Mizora said. ><

oh, ok, I guess that makes sense...
That's stupid of them to think that. Lord of the Rings can and should be loved by all.

Most people will complain about the use of rotoscoping in the film (the use of live action images which are used as background images and often animated over using various techniques from what appears to be small amounts of tinting to full blown animation). But I feel that the people who complain about it simply cannot accept an art form which is out of the norm. No, this is not Disney animation.

I've never heard anyone complain about that. :huh2:
One of the greatest things about LOTR is it's amazing scenery and special effects. FOTR won the Academy Award for cinematography, and all three won for visual effects. And they were all nominated for Art Direction, but only ROTK won.

How old were you when you read them?

I was either 12 or just 13. Back then most people in my class were reading centimetre wide books and I was reading books like Lord of the Rings and Eragon and so on. I guess that's what earned me the nickname "Bookworm". :laughing:

That's awesome. Don't be ashamed (not that you are).
I think I was like 10 or 11 when I read them, but I was homeschooled at the time, so no one saw me reading them except my best friend, who is also obsessed.

Oh yeah, I had that. :laughing: It's awesome! Three years later they're all like, 'I've just started this amazing series - Eragon!' and then you can get back at them for all the teasing by telling them what happens at the end, because you read it so long ago! :laughing:
Thankyou for my avvie, Rain! I luv it!!! :laughing:

Do not let the Cat out. No matter what I tell you. :shiny:

Never say that! Never! Run before you walk! Fly before you crawl! Keep moving forward! Because if we fail, I'd rather fail really hugely. All or nothing!
