Influence  of  Tolkien  literature

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

  Tolkien  literature  has  achieved  so  much  success  that     has  made  appear  computer  games ,  role  plays  and  films.
    Role  plays have  made  a  scandal   indeed.In this  kind  of  game ,  each      person  has  a  role,  they  play  as  if  they  were  a character  of  the  story. In  this  way they  make  a  story   which  includes   fantasy, fights  ,  death , ...
    Because  of  that  the  scandal  was  that  people  who  played,  principally  teenagers,have  comitted murders because  they  have  brought the  game  to real  life,  believing  that  they  are  the  character actually  .
 


 

COMPUTER GAMES

J.R.R. Tolkien worked for an entire lifetime in creating his amazing fantasy world, Middle-earth. This world of elves, dwarves, hobbits and other creatures became the setting for his bestselling novels The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. In time, these novels became one of the main sources of inspiration for the growing role-playing hobby, which in turn came to inspire many of the pioneer computer game programmers during the seventies.

These pages, created as a homage to Tolkien and to the many devoted people who brought Middle-earth to new life with their computers, are designed to be a source of reference for the computer-gaming Tolkien fan. All in all, there are more than 100 games known to me and you can search for the ones you are interested in by means of several different criteria.

ROLE PLAYS
There are a lot of web pages related to role plays. I´ve found over 1300 matches.That is, a lot of people  who plays.The success of this type of games is evident.I´m not against this type of game, but there are also many news about murders motivated by them and other computer games. Violence appears in every game and children are exposed to it.( I ´m not criticising this type of game, I´m informing objectively about what´s happening in the world today).I´ve played also , and I think that is a very imaginative game where you have to use strategy and give free rein to your imagination. You can have a good time.

Why are the movies being made?

   For many years, fans across the world have dreamed of the day when The Lord of the Rings trilogy could be brought to life on the screen. Up until the present time, the technology needed to make film versions of J. R. R. Tolkienís massive epic novels simply did not exist. Now, with the recent amazing advances in computer technology in the movie industry, it is entirely possible to visually recreate Tolkienís landscapes, locations, and creatures for the screen. With the proven power of the source material, the limitless possibilities offered by computer technology, and the sheer amount of talent amassed for the project, it is abundantly clear that there has never been a better time than the present to bring these stories to life. And the fact that the studios financing the films are almost assured a wealth of profit from both the movies themselves and promotional tie-ins doesnít hurt, either.

 Who's directing?

 Peter Jackson, commonly referred to as "PJ" by fans, is in control of the three movies. Jackson is a New Zealander whose previous films include The Frighteners, Dead Alive, and Heavenly Creatures. He was the recipient of a London Critics Circle Award as Director of the Year in 1996 for his work on Heavenly Creatures.

How is the director controlling such a huge project?

Instead of micromanaging the project and overseeing every small detail, Jackson has delegated some of the responsibility to others, although he does still have the final say. The three movies are not being shot in sequence, one after another, but are instead being filmed at the same time. This method of shooting the movies will save both time and money in the long run. Jackson is controlling the main unit for filming, and full second and third units are also working on various scenes in different locations. Jackson maintains control of the other two units via satellite videoconference.

 What company is producing?

Peter Jacksonís Wingnut Films Limited is producing the movies, and New Line Cinema is financing them. New Line will also be in charge of distribution.

Who adapted the books to a script?

Peter Jackson himself turned the books into a screenplay, in collaboration with Frances Walsh, Philippa Boyens, and Stephen Sinclair. Jackson and Walsh shared an Oscar® nomination for Best Original Screenplay for 1994ís Heavenly Creatures.

 Why isn't J.R.R. Tolkien's son, Christopher Tolkien, involved in the film project?

The members of the Tolkien estate have stated repeatedly that they do not wish to be involved with the film project, although they have not released to the public any specific reasons why they made this choice. The merchandising rights belong to Saul Zaentz Company, so the Tolkien estate has no control over movie-related merchandise.
