When I hear LoTR fans saying this around a bonfire here in the UK for Guy Fawkes Night I always smile and shout MUSTER THE ROHIRRIM! Everyone who gets it laughs and shouts in response too, those that don't look at the rest of us like we're drunk or mad.

I think that if the Silmarillion were ever put on screen it should be a REALLY LONG series. That way, you can keep in a lot. Of course there would still be cuts, but in a series you could keep it pretty fat. (At least in my logic. I know about nothing of film making.)
