Tolkien stuff on Youtube

Post by Anduril »

Now you probably know there's a lot of the above on Youtube. These include "fanvids", clips of the man himself, fake Hobbit trailers, the entirety of The Return of the King (1980), and amateur re-enactments of the Fingolfin/Morgoth duel.

I'd like to share this oddity - The Tale of the Children of Húrin "trailer", assembled from other movies.

Spot the actors/actresses/sources! I don't know where the clip came from, but "Mîm" is amazing. (posted on TORC some months ago)


Morgoth vs Fingolfin 1:

Morgoth vs Fingolfin 2:

Morgoth vs Fingolfin 3 (CGI, Lego-ish):

"Spirit of Fire" - about Fëanor, naturally:

The battle of Morgoth vs Fingolfin is one of my favorite Tolkien scenes.
Somehow I didn't picture Fingolfin with a Captain America cape on.

Not to mention sports shoes and white socks.

It was disconcerting to hear Shore where I expected laughter tracks.

This is a nice celtic-tinged rendering of the Beren and Lúthien poem that Strider sings at Weathertop.

And there are some neat fan-trailers out there.

I really like that, Brian. Did you listen to any of his other stuff? His Lament to Bomomir is really nice, too, as his Song of Durin.

Ooo, this was beautiful. :love:

Before this, my top find was They Are Taking the Hobbits to Isengard - a horse of a different feather, assuredly, but I found it hilarious.
His philosophy was a mixture of three famous schools -- the Cynics, the Stoics and the Epicureans -- and summed up all three of them in his famous phrase, 'You can't trust any bugger further than you can throw him, and there's nothing you can do about it, so let's have a drink."
