Tiny Lord Of The Rings Cosplay Is Very, Very Precious

These adorable little Spanish kids have been captured by some far less-adorable adults. I don't know what Spanish is for "looks like meat's back on the menu, boys", but maybe it'd be less creepy in this instance than it is in English. » 2/13/13 12:30am 2/13/13 12:30am

This Rap Battle Between Gollum and Smeagol Is Both Gross And Awesome

Gollum/Smeagol are both actually quite clever. If the [minor The Hobbit spoilers] riddle scene in The Hobbit tells us anything, it's certainly at least that much. » 12/31/12 8:00pm 12/31/12 8:00pm

The World Of Men Is Split On The Hobbit. What Did You Think?

Opinions on The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey are like those bookends that came with the collector's edition of The Fellowship of the Ring. Lots of people have 'em, but no one knows quite what to do with them. » 12/17/12 2:00pm 12/17/12 2:00pm

Celebrate Five Years of Lord of the Rings Online with Free Stuff

Has it really been five years since Turbine took the world's most beloved fantasy world and transformed it into a massively multiplayer online game adored by a handful of players until it went free-to-play? Well I sure hope so; otherwise this post is pretty pointless. » 4/16/12 9:30am 4/16/12 9:30am

Game Reviewers Protest Middle-Earth's Senseless War in the North

There once was a small hobbit that left the Shire on a grand adventure, performing brave deeds and overcoming impossible odds for the sake of all Middle-Earth. This is not his story. » 11/03/11 6:20pm 11/03/11 6:20pm

Leaving Lord Of The Rings 4 Dead
