I saw that a week or so ago and read through the whole thing. Some of those were pretty basic, and I knew most of the others, but there were a few tidbits that surprised me, mostly ones relating solely to the films. All in all a fun list. Smile

Pallando was one of the names name Tolkien proposed for one of the two ever-mysterious Blue Wizards that he was never entirely clear about what they did. Razz

They missed out the shot of the Black Rider, or the shot of Bilbo under the Party tree, or Gandalf leaving the Shire, or the shot of Strider in the room at Bree, or the Riders in the room at Bree and the shots he stole at the Ford and the Council and Lothlorien........

There were a few in there that I didn't know. That was a pretty cool list, especially since they went into detail on each point. And I wish I had one of those Pez dispensers. Laughing
