    I really want to see a movie that tells about dragons like Glaurung.

    Welcome to the forum!

    A film of Turin's life, including dragon-slaying, would be epic, indeed, but I wonder if it wouldn't be too grim to succeed with most audiences?

    Unless they tacked on a happy ending -- like Demi Moore's Scarlet Letter! :mad:

    ..If I may ask, did you read Tolkien in English or Finnish? Or both? One reason I ask members from non-English-speaking nations about this is I'm always interested in their take on translations into their native tongue.

    In this case, I'm also curious about your mention of "Noldor" -- was this a Finnish translation of a dragon's name? It would be an odd choice, if so, as the Noldor were one of the important tribes of Elves.

    Hey!
    I heard someone reading a section of the Simarillion in Finnish on youtube a few years ago and i was blown away by how it sounded. I want to see a movie about Scatha.

    Off T- I saw extreme filth a while ago on the PP's. What the heck was that? xD

    A double welcome, then, Petteri, I mean Hiidenpata (!)-- to the forum, and to the Club of Messers Up! :)

    Edit: That was reported and deleted, Miguel. If you see something "iffy" you can message Erestor Arcamen, our hard-working Mod.

    Right -- nothing to do with you, PK!

    Troll was trying to avoid the "Report" button that appears at the bottom of each post.
