Umm, actually the Silmarillion is the mythology of several millennia before the action of the LOTR, and it may not help much in understanding "Fellowship." But it's well worth reading on its own account. What's the name of the program, pray tell?
Saw the movie on Christmas Day, will see it again tomorrow. Will have to look for the three trolls!
My favorite line: Boromir's "They've got a cave troll" rendered with just the right touch of casual disgust. Second favorite is the hobbit discussion of meals. "What about second breakfast? I don't think he knows about second breakfast."
The Silmarillion is very different from LOTR. For one thing, in the First Age of middle earth the geography gets changed like 18 times by Valar going to war, and once more in the second age when the Numenorians get swept into the sea and Valinor is hidden.
However, a lot of the characters in the LOTR (Cirdan, Galadriel, Elrond, Cereborn... are in the stories. You also learn that 3 of the characters in LOTR are actually demigods.. I'll let you guess which ones. Also it reveals which 3 characters wore rings of power throughought the entire trilogy. And all the backstory about the Dragons, Balrogs, Silmarils, Rings of power, the nations of Elves.. well that's just gravy!
