I catched that comment too! Quite often to be the case most of the time, although for those that know dear ol' Tom, they see him always chanting and cheering and being a jolly fellow so I assume they expect him to be happy, or at least content with his place in the world.
What an interesting idea! I agree with your other comments related to how it might have been received by Tolkien or by the fans, or even if it could have been created with the technology of that time (although I am not an expert of last-century cinema, I do know some big movie names of 50-70 years ago, so I assume something was still possible - definitely not to the extent of what was done in the 2000's).
Yeah, I really love seeing what comes from collaborations between disparate interesting and creative folks. I would've loved to have seen what would come from theirs.
You're right, perhaps with some real thought and inventiveness, something could have been figured out. They had films that were grand, sweeping epics, and with massive clashing armies, so that takes care of much of it. I guess the most difficult part would have been all of the creatures... Imagine if Kubrick had reached out to Jim Henson and Frank Oz for help on that front!
I love the films of Kubrik, I love the music of the Beatles, and I love the written works of Tolkien. But I just can't see anything good coming out of combining them all. It would have been fascinating to watch the documentary on the making of the film, much as they say it is fascinating to watch a train wreck. The film itself would never have been finished. The only way to combine these three successfully would be if someone else were to do an homage to them all - and that person would need to be very talented themselves.
Now, a collaboration among them to create something new would have been potentially amazing.
Still better than much of what's now considered as Cinema ...
To misunderstand Nietzsche: God is dead, Bombadil just retired.
He can't be Maiar, and as I recall the Valar are all accounted for. Yet no Maiar would've entered Arda before a Valar.
That was another possibility, that he's an echo of Eru on earth.
I personally don't mind him being unexplainable, I feel Tolkein just liked the character and wanted to shoehorn him into LOTR.
