About

About Me:

Hiya! After two years of living in England and going to a British 6th Form, I’m finally back in the States and heading to college (university for you Brits)!

I LOVE Fantasy…. As will probably become evident within days of starting this blog. In fact, essentially, the most important things you can know about me are the things I am in love with.

Basically, combine Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Narnia, Doctor Who, Merlin, Sherlock, Once Upon A Time, Grimm, Star Wars, the Belgariad Series, Percy Jackson Series’, throw in some languages, and you get…. ME.

Also, I should probably mention the name of the blog: For those of you smart enough (or obsessed with LotR enough I should say. Though in my opinion every smart person should be obsessed with LotR….) to know the significance of the Title, Congrats!!

For those of you who aren’t: Parma Indilon is Quenya (language of the Elves in LotR) for ‘Book of Lily’ or ‘Lily’s Book’.

If you like what you see on my blog, you can find me in several other places as well now! There’s a link to like my facebook page on the sidebar, and you can find me on Twitter @AiweIndilon. I also have a tumblr, which I haven’t done a whole lot on yet, save put some pictures I’ve edited up. My podcast can be found on iTunes, and my goal is to have one episode per month.

If you want to reach me, there’s a Contact Me page, and I check messages regularly (provided I have wifi). Wishing you all the best!

Nota Bene: I don’t own any of the images in my background (except the lily in the bottom right corner, I took that picture). They were put together using PicMix on my iPod; unfortunately from before when I was actually a bit more copyright-conscious, so I don’t know where specifically/exactly they’re from (thanks google images -.- ). Probably owned by: Disney, HBO, NBC, Warner Bros, and New Line Cinema (but really, no copyright infringement intended).

  1. Just because I know that after a while these important early posts will get unseen unless put in a more obvious place:

    from Nov. 2012: In My Opinion…
    First off, please note that basically EVERYTHING on this blog is ‘in my opinion’ unless otherwise stated.

    Okay, moving on.
    Movies can have varying levels of value in two different categories:

    Movies that have entertainment value
    Movies that have value from a filmmaking stance
    Movies that have ‘classic’ value

    For Example: On a scale of 1-20

    Lord of the Rings Trilogy:
    Entertainment: 14
    Would be higher, but it can be a bit slow paced for those who aren’t avid fans of the series.
    Filmmaking: 15
    Props, costuming, make-up, use of sound etc- amazing. The amount of time and effort put into this movie is astounding. The scaling work is fantastic, the attention to detail is superb. The sweeping helicopter shots do a beautiful job of making the most of the setting and set the Middle Earth mood.
    Classic: 11
    This movie series is too young to be classic. However, I believe that it /will/ become a classic, and that there is value in watching it ‘just to watch it’; to get the references, etc.

    The Mummy:
    Entertainment: 17
    Wit and humour interspersed with action, drama, and romance. What more could you want?
    Filmmaking: 13
    Though there were some humorous, witty shots to match the tone of the movie, aside from the screenwriting, the technical aspects of the movie didn’t stand out. Well, except for editing, which by not standing out is doing its job. The editing helped emphasise tension when necessary, but didn’t distract from the movie overall.
    Classic: 6
    Just not a classic. Though it does have a ride at Universal Studios.

    I am really liking this rating system, so get use to seeing it. 🙂
