A qualified chemist who somehow drifted into web development. I've learned (to a greater or lesser degree of accuracy) PHP and JavaScript, and would like to learn something completely different for the sake of it. I'm a weirdo who actually enjoys reading (and sometimes writing) technical documentation.

comment How does William know what song to play?
I mean that if it was intended to be understood as a coincidence, it's not an implausible one. Clearly it's not a coincidence from the perspective of the writer(s), but if it is supposed to be from the characters' perspectives, it works as such.

comment How does William know what song to play?
Have not read the book or seen the film, but I live in Ireland and can tell you that this is a perfectly believable coincidence. It is, after all, a very well known song.

comment The movie about an American man and his 10 year old Asian son
Always edit clarifications into the question itself, instead of leaving them buried in comments.

comment Naming convention of movie titles
This is nothing specifically to do with films. This is just how titles work in English (as Derrick's answer makes clear).

@ChristianRau. Aragorn is descended from Luthian, daughter of Thingol of Dorian and Melian the Maia.

Well, Aragorn had not only the blood of Westernesse, but also that of elves and Maia. The royal blood is a special case, even among Numenorians.

comment What is the average life expectancy of Middle-Earth inhabitants?
For a start, orcs and goblins are the same. For a second, there's nowhere near enough information in the films to answer this question: you'll need to look to the books (start with the Doom of Man). (Lord of the Rings Appendix B might be particularly useful. It's the Tale of Years.)

comment Why did the dwarves sing the song?
Well, @ChristianRau, I'd actually be inclined to get rid of the image, but I suppose it does look nice. I'll leave that decision up to the ShaliNephilim or another local.

comment Existence of Sauron in The Hobbit
In the book, the identity of the Necromancer was already known at this point (Gandalf discovered it by himself years previously, on the occasion when he acquired the map and key from the dying Thrain). I have no idea why they changed that for the film.
