: Is it just me, or is there some link between Indy fans and Tolkien fans? Maybe it's the whole idea of a noble quest, powerful artifacts, and amazing characters. Any opinions appreciated
I don't really know what the connection is... though Indy is pure adventure, history, and terrific music and Tolkien can be as well, there's a lot of difference as well. Perhaps the talent of Lucas in creating a great, legendary character and the talent of Tolkien in creating a whole, real-as-our-own world, simply have an appeal that attracts many of the same people. I'm glad to have them both.
