aragorn distracted Haldir at first, but Haldir died as he was making his way back, and isnt it strange, 2 people have died (boromir, Haldir) with aragorn at their side. weird huh?

galadrielsmaiden! i did not cry! (she said that in another post) I almost cried when Haldir died though. i think it was one of the coolest parts, even if it wasnt in the book.

<BLOCKQUOTE>quote:<HR>Maybe this is more of a reflection on Orlando than Legolas, but I haven't seen a whole lot of emotion out of this guy. He looked more confused when Gandalf died than anything. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>I've gotta disagree, Doug, buddy Maybe he looks confused to you, but what he says is, "I have not the heart to tell you. For me the grief is still too near." He's so upset that he can't bring himself to translate the lament. Then at Helm's Deep, he seems to me to be genuinely afraid. When he says, "they're all going to die", he is protesting not only on behalf of the humans which are all about to be massacred, but on behalf of himself, Aragorn and Gimli. Now, he's a warrior and warriors are supposed to keep such feelings to themselves. That is how I can classify Legolas as emotional.

If I may add my two cents into this, Legolas was confused over Gandalf's death in the affect that he didnt understand death. Elves are immortal and the concept of suddenly dying is confusing to them. Of course he is emational and was upset. But to an immortal being, death is confusing.

*sighs* Yes, I did cry when he died, as well as when Frodo almost kills Sam *cries for poor Sam* The look in Haldir's eyes... I also think PJ killed him off because it wasn't really stressed that elves could die in FotR... a 'little reminder', so to speak...<BR>How about his entrance? I like it when Aragorn hugged him. He was surprised, but he hugged him back and smiled. *smiles at the memory* Despite his lack of screentime, I already had a special place in my heart for Haldir. Now it feels empty.

Well dont be too sad, knowing PJ's changing of things, Haldir may come back in The ROTK as being reincarnated.

I thought it was sweet how the elves came. It was awesome how you could see the peoples faces light up. I also thought it was sweet how warrior Aragorn couldnt help but hug Haldir he was so happy. I was personally VERY sad when Haldir died. *le sigh*

I didn't cry when he was killed but now I'm trying to compose myself. I agree with all the good that everyone has said about him. I don't agree with anything that was negatively said about him. <P>Um....I don't believe he dies in the books.<P>*goes to bed and cries into pillow*

ok this is sort of off topic but all the talk of how Haldir isn't supposed to be there and such brought it to mind...<BR>did anyone else almost laugh out loud when Sam and Frodo are in Osgiliath, and Sam says something to the effect of "By rights we shouldn't even be here?" ... he meant something else by it, but I just cracked up. you dang well shouldn't be there Sam. it's not in the book.

i didn't even think that Haldir was in TTT, and he certainly doesn't die. Nasssssty LA Directors. and isn't it just SLIGHTLY disrepectful towards Tolkien's great memory to show (nonetheless sexy) Orlando Bloom on the equivalent of a skate board, when they were only invented in the decade that Tolkkien died. Poopingtons.

When Haldir and his mighty elves of Lorien I stood up and gave a mighty cheer for my favorite character that the entire audience took up. When i was stunned to see Haldir die (curse that Aragorn for distracting him!) i started crying. Naturally everyone in the theater thought I was mentally retarded, but it was so sad to see such a noble warrior die

I was really saddened at Haldir's death. He was an officer and a gentleman, and a damned good chap of an elf! The when the camera moved in on the other dead elves, that was very moving too.

Haldir was a brave noble elf who died for Middle Earth, but might have had one too many cream puffs. Look at all the other elven kind. They are all being diminished or somethin, so they rush off to the Undying Lands, carrying lanterns. But Haldir goes off to Helms Deep wid his archers & honours the Alliance wid the stinky Men of Middle Earth (who never seem to take baths, by the way).<P>HALDIR LIVES! <P>PS. I haf met Craig Parker & he is a skinny humorous humble fellow. Peter Jackson must haf told him to gain a little weight for LOTR.

Many, many good things were said on this thread.<P>What Mollecon said about the elves making perfect sense arriving at Helms Deep, I agree completely!!<P>Aengthrea Greenleaf Of Mirkwood: <BLOCKQUOTE>quote:<HR> “And when the orc stabbed him in the back AHHHHHH I cried harder *yells at the move screen* WHY DID YOU DO THAT!!!!????” <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>I jumped up and yelled as well! Then I sat down and started crying silently *snifs* <P>Harmonica:<BR> <BLOCKQUOTE>quote:<HR> Oh, Haldir! Haldir! That beautiful elf... <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>Yes, Harmonica, he *was* a beautiful elf! *sighs*<P>I was moved by the elves arrival at Helm's Deep, and saddened to a huge extent at Haldir's departure. <P>And just for the record, when Aragorn called up to Haldir to tell him to move back to the keep, Haldir looked at Aragorn, knodded, waved back to his the elves and the other men (if any) that were on the wall, I think he even fought off another orc, swung around or something, and *then* was killed. So it was *not* Aragorn's fault.<P>But why Haldir ...

So he doesn't die in the books... then how can PJ justify offing him? It's not like he died somewhere else and PJ<BR>just wanted a nobler death or something *sobs some more*

Hi! I'm not a big Haldir fan (In the movies, because he is not supposed to be at Helms Deep. Yes, I am still very bitter about the elves at helms deep)but there is an interview with him (Craig Parker) <A HREF="http://www.nzgirl.co.nz/articles/1804" TARGET=_blank>here</A>and info about a birthday project (a scrap book to be sent to him ) <A HREF="http://www.freewebz.com/cparkerproject/index.html" TARGET=_blank>here.</A>
