Oh, how I love this topic of conversation.

I hated what PJ had done to my precious Faramir when I first saw that movie. And the second time. And then the third time I made myself really watch. And...

I've always thought it was funny that Faramir married Eomer's sister, then Eomer married Faramir's cousin. Talk about joining nations!

When I was about seven years old, my dad read me The Lord of the Rings. It wasn't until nearly a decade later, when I heard that there were going to be movies made out of my dad's absolute favorite...

I always really liked Aragorn's rant about the Warden and pipeweed, but for irrelevant characters I hold fast by Ghan-Buri-Ghan. Enough said. I haven't got a book nearby to quote, but the Yoda-esque...

Gandalf vs. the Balrog was probably my favorite actual one-on-one, but I'd make a definite plea for Boromir's death scene, even if it's not really one-on-one. I cry every time I see that scene.

I can't stand hearing about Orlando Bloom this and Orlando Bloom that and omg isn't he soooooo sexy? Drives me up the wall. But I don't blame him for his stupid lines (like that one he says about the...

Hmm, well, I have to say I'm more of an ambush person myself, so I'd probably go with Faramir and his rangers. They get to wear those cool Robin Hood-esque cloaks. And they're multi-weapon: bows,...

Beregond/Imrahil

That's what I thought about the spiffy cloak too. And I figured that all the northern Gondorians have dark hair (except Faramir and Boromir... which is a little weird, but oh well) but he was blonde....

The thing about Aragorn's lines was that some of them weren't the greatest written lines, like 'For Frodo', but they were well-delivered. Then there were lines that were well-written, but the...

You know, for one of Tolkien's favorite characters, Faramir sure endured a lot in the films. I mean, tons of people were up in arms about the TT portrayal (yes, I was one of them) before the EE - and...

Personally, I think the pyre would have been more dramatic if PJ had just left it as it was in the book. I mean, that is one of my favorite scenes in the book, and it was all right in the movie...
