    He didn’t say the name Gollum right, so he obviously never watched the
    movies :(

    Smeagol still exists along with Gollum though sooooooo… Yeah, your point
    is null Stephen. Smeagol and Gollum (the two personalities) even debate
    among themselves!

    Stephen said the story wrong about how Smeagol transformed into Gollum.

    The way he mentioned it was how it was presented in the movies. In the
    books Deagol kept the ring for a year and when it was Smeagol’s birthday he
    demanded he have the ring as his birthday present and when Deagol refused
    to give the ring to him Smeagol stole the ring from him and then went into
    the Misty Mountains and that is when he transformed into Gollum.

    It’s so awesome to know that one of us, the LOTR/Star Wars/Harry Potter
    geeks, somehow slipped through into show business…

    But doesn’t Frodo, learn of his past and start to refer to him as Smeagol?
    Maybe they’re saying that this spider characteristically still has that
    good side in them like the actual Gollum/Smeagol. But the Shelob was a very
    fair point.
