Okay, I've noticed a few times that there aren't any sections about other movies ELijah has been in-- only one on LOTR, and even one about the cast of the movie! Shouldn't there be sections for Flipper and the likes?

If by "sections" you mean "threads," then there have often been threads of all Elijah's other movies... not sure what else to say?

Well I know there's the "Other Movies" section, but it seems rather odd to have a whole section about the cast of a single movie/series he's been in, and neglect all his older movies.

But, yes, I can see how they might not be talked about enough.

*shrug* LotR is huuuuuuge. It warrants a whole board, I think..two boards in fact. His other moves haven't been as successful and/or don't have enough of a following.

Even the threads about his other movies aren't popular, unless you're posting racy pics. LotR emcompasses a lot; it's not just about being a film Elijah's starred in.

I get where you're going with this. Lotr is awesome, but I don't usually think of it as an "Elijah Movie" - at least not as much as The Good Son, Flipper, The War, et cetera. don't get me wrong, Elijah's Frodo is probably one of the strongest roles he's ever played. emphasis on "one of." I've seen *goes to count* 23 of his other movies, and lotr is SO not the only good one in the bunch. I guess sometimes people forget that Elijah was in about 20 other films before the Fellowship.
I'll talk about elijah's other movies any day

Well, to be honest, I think LOTR was the first remarkable thing Elijah ever did anyway.

It's obvious why LOTR has its own forum, both for the scope and influence of the project and also because it was a globally renowned text to begin with.

But c'mon -- Flipper?  Deep Impact?  The Faculty?  Only so much can be said about these films -- it's all the same for his younger roles, despite some of them having critical praise.  IMO, we tend to care more about his recent projects because he was older in them, they tend to be more complex, and we identify more with him as a person, rather than when he was 12.

Well, that's ignoring the 12 year olds on the board... and the 13, 14, 11, probably as low as 9/10 year olds, too.

They don't make up a majority though.

And besides, interviews and appearances associated with those movies are history.  There's nothing new about them, nothing to discover.  It's not a dynamic topic of discussion the way LOTR is or more recent projects in his life.

Oh yeah, I know, don't get me wrong; I understand the reasons now. I just don't like that theres a section specifically for the cast of one of his movies. Ah well, though, beggars can't be choosers!

If you don't like it, start your own board, right ?

Lord of the Rings is an epic tale, it isn't just a story, it is a never ending tale. With Elijahs other movies, they are just that, a story that ends, that's it, role credits! With LotR the boundaries are endless, there are pages at the back of the book that give into the reader imagining endless possibilities for the characters to encounter, you can't really say the same for Flipper, now can you? You would have an entire forum dedicated to Flipper, or Radio Flyer....? It's a waste, there is only so much you can talk about regarding those movies.

No one is ignoring or neglecting the 12 year old members, they are free to discuss his other movies in the appropriate forums provided. And to be perfectly honest, no 9 or 10 year old has any business being on this board, that's just ridiculous!

Yes, and besides, they're not just cast members; they're some of Elijah's closest friends and they are connected to him through LOTR.  Most people here are post-Frodo fans, so it's only natural that we're interested in and wish to talk about the cast of that particular movie more than, say, that of Flipper.
