I just watched the LotR trilogy again the other day... I noticed the amazing amount of similarties (and to go along with that, differences) that these stories share with the Cronicles of Prydain.

Noticeably, the endings of both, what with the ships sailing away so that the characters would go live immortally in the Summer Lands, or Valinor for LotR.

The stories are based on the same mythology, Welsh from what I understand, and so it makes sense that they would be similar

It'd be interesting to hear some opinions from all of you regarding this subject.

Also, wouldn't it be great if some well done, live action, big budget movies were done of the Chronicles? That's my opinion, I know some people wouldn't want movies for various reasons.... just thought i'd throw it out there. :)

so what does everyone think?
