Project W.I.N.K.L.E. Lives!

What do you think of Tolkien on the silver screen...? Whether Bakshi, Jackson, Amazon, BBC radio play, or whoever else, come on in and discuss your reflections, opinions, and memories...

Haha, very funny. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> Of course we all know it's really Merry who is really instrumental in bringing down the Wiki, though, right? <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>

Oh, thanks!<BR><BR>Ciaran: Or is it just Bergil DRESSED as Merry? We'll never know, will we? Unless we reveal his FEET. (Of course, this brings up the issue of Bergil running errands at the Houses of Healing while being treated there himself. I'm sure this is possible to tie together somehow.)<BR><BR>As for GILDOR, yes, I am afraid I forgot about him; perhaps we should save him for the Broadway musical version? And there is also GALDOR, whose NOBLE ATTEMPT AT RETURNING TO THE HAVENS AND NOT SO NOBLE IMPRISONMENT BY LOTHO AT BAG END remains yet to be written (I always thought there were too few POOLPS scenes, and Galdor does seem to vanish inexplicably in the story).

Hmm, maybe someone should start a new Two Towers version, based on what has already occured in FOTR plus new rumors. <BR><BR>Revised Project WINKLE, The Indeterminate Towers or something to that effect. <BR><BR>Gandalf: There is a union now between the Two Towers ... <BR>Aragorn: Which ones would those be? <BR>Gandalf: All of them, see they are all actually the same tower, but they exist simultaeously at different points in space time. <BR>Aragorn: Does that mean there are portals in the basement linking them all together. <BR>Gandalf: Yes, sure, whatever, the point is, it's supposed to be symbolic. See according to Freud a Tower represents .... <BR>Pippin: Ahhhh! I've just been molested by Sauron via the portal. <BR><BR><BR><BR>Help. Someone shut me up. <BR>

That might be a good idea. Also, someone else may have already suggested this, but how about a W.I.N.K.L.E. style script based on The Hobbit???

Hey all, I started reading this at MyPrecious about a year ago. Then about a month ago I found the whole Project WINKLE here and have been reading it since. Today I finally finished, horray for me! This project is great. You all have such great senses of humor. I wish, just like everyone else that has recently stumbled upn this page, that I had found this earlier and gotten to add to it...oh well. I certainly couldn't of done any better than everyone else did. Congrats to everyone for creating such a work of art.<BR>Eärwen<BR>

Guess what, everyone? I've compiled the entire script for Project WINKLE on MS Word! You can now read it offline! Download it here: <a target=new href="http://elfhealer.topcities.com/downloads/">http://elfhealer.topcities.com/downloads/</a>. I believe the total size, zipped, is 190 kilobytes or so.

Nice job putting that into Word. Must have been tedious. I've printed it out and am reading it. What a riot!

I know, isn't it? *sigh* I think the Androgynous Elves of Lothlorien are too close to the "real thing" to be funny, now. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0>

Due to inquiries, I'm bumping this up again. I've taken the liberty of deleting many of the posts that said "bump" or something to that effect. This thread is long enough as it is!<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>(Yes, I deleted my own "bump" posts as well)

i have just finished reading this script and i think that it is the funniest thing i have ever read. This is my 1st post and I think that they should make a movie out of this. Freaqboy, Radagast and Elmtree are the best. by the way, what happened to freaq near the middle?

I read this for the first time many, many months ago, and it was one of the things that really got me interested in TORC; I joined up and started posting soon after.

It's sad to see it so neglected now. :(

In other news, BUMP
