Hall of Fire Chats - Jan 11&12
Demosthenes @ 3:18 am EST

No single character from Two Towers has caused more controversy than the writing of Faramir. Some people have been outraged enough to brand it "character assassination". Keeping in mind that there's much more of Faramir to come in RoTK, what do we think so far?

The Movie Characterisation of Faramir. Success or Failure?

Is Faramir off-base and miscast, as some have suggested, or have Jackson and Boyens brought onto the spotlight the darkness within and desperate desire for his father's approval? What can we expect to see in Return of the King? And regardless, does Jackson's interpretation enhance or detract from Two Towers?

Join us this weekend at Hall of Fire for what is sure to be a very lively debate!

January 18-19
