The Wizards aren't humans with magic: They are five demi-gods placed in Middle Earth to guard and watch the living races. There are magicians, and sorcerers and enchanters that are mortal beings however. This is how Gandalf was able to come back to life; his "task" (guarding Middle Earth) was not complete.

The Dwarves were the first race on Middle Earth, but the Elves were the first alive. This is because the god that made the elves too so long making them perfect, that another got bored and made his own, but the elves were meant to be the "first people" so they dwarves weren't given life until later, which is the cause of the great rivalry between the two.

The Orthanc at Isengaurd was a fortress built by men in an age long past (it's older than Helmsdeep iirc), Saruman was given charge of it, as the greatest of the Five, so he could more effectively conduct his research and do his duties.

Minas Tirith (translates as "White Tower") was one of a pair: Minas Morgal ("Black Tower") was its twin. The two were designed to watch the pass to Harador, but Saron took Minas Morgal in the first War of the Ring.

The races of Middle Earth match up, roughly, to the various stereotypical cultures of that era in Europe (from a British perspective):

Hobbits - Irish
Elves - British
Dwarves - Nordic
Men of Ruhn/Harrad - Middle Easterners
Men - mostly Saxon and Teutonic/Germanic (the Gondorians show certain British traits, but this is justified as the Saxons are the main settling group of Britain)

There is almost a decade between when Frodo receives the Ring and when Gandolf finds out what the Ring is, sending him on his journey. Frodo sets out shortly after his fiftieth birthday.

I might be doing a grave mistake giving my opinion on the internet right now, but I always found Boromir's death in the movies to capture his character in the best and most touching way, even better than the books imo. The extended version of the Fellowship of the Ring gave Boromir much needed character development in the face of his past and present thoughts (not to mention the Osgiliath scene in The Two Towers), so I felt much more engaged when he died. His final moments in the movie made him look exactly like the books portrayed him, like a strong and proud warrior of Gondor. I mean for ***** sake, he kept slicing up Uruk-khai even with several arrows up in his chest. In the animated movies he just yelled at them.
At least for me the movies took a step further and gave Boromir a really thought-out character whose struggles were actually believable and to whom we could relate. That's why his death always gets me.

"The world of men will fall, and all will come to darkness. My city to ruin." - Some of Boromirs last words.   
   
He gave his life for a couple hobbits that he didn't even believe would succeed.
