Oh lord Boromir has so many excellent lines. "They have a cave troll!" is so damn funny! And his dying words were phenomenal. But my favourite is<P>"What is this new devilry?"<P>And the worst one is that "Gondor needs no King" one. Not for delivery, just shouldn't have been used.

Boromir's Best: "They have a cave troll!"<P>Boromir's Worst: "And what would a ranger know of this matter?"

Boromir's best lines: <BR>1) "You carry the fate of us all little one. If this is indeed the will of the council, then Gondor will see it done."<BR>2) "It is a strange fate that we should suffer so much fear and doubt, over so small a thing.... such a little thing."<BR>3) "I would have followed you, my brother. My captain. My king." <P>Boromir's worst lines:<BR>1) "We make for the Gap of Rohan. We should never have come here! Now get out of here! Get out!!" (that line was kinda scary!)

Boromir:<BR>Best:<BR>1) I would have followed you to the end - my brother...my captain...my KING.<BR>2) It is a strange fate that we should suffer so much fear and doubt over so small a thing... Such a little thing.<BR>3)Have you ever seen it, Aragorn? The White Tower of Ecthelion glimmering like a spike of pearl and silver, its banners caught high in the morning breeze? Have you ever been called home by the clear ringing of silver trumpets?<P>Worst: <BR>1)Gondor has no king. Gondor needs no king - I agree that Mr. Bean delievered this line well, but the line was terse.<BR>2) Still Sharp - yea this is a tribute to an old show Sean Bean did (character's name was Sharpe), and he adds anything "sharp" into his lines (I know, it's scripted).<BR>3) It could have been mine. It should be mine! Give it to me! - I know, this line is essential to Boromir's downfall to the power of the ring...blah blah blah..but dammit it still ****es me off...

I want to change my vote. I did say "What is this new devilry?" but I just remembered an altogether better part.<P>"One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its Black Gates are guarded by more than just Orcs. There is evil there that DOES NOT SLEEP! And the Great Eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire, and ash, and dust. Not with ten thousand Men could you do this. It is folly!"<P>That's not really one line but whatever. It rules.

Ah ha you guys have finally gotten round to my favortie character. So here goes:<BR>Best:<BR>1:It's moving fast and against the wind<BR>2:This isn't a mine it's a tomb<BR>3:Oh they have a cave troll (he says it in such an offhand matter as if a cave troll was no biggie)<BR>4:Forgive me I did not see. I have failed you all. Leave it. It is over. The world of men will fall and all will come to darkness, and my city to ruin. (These are the most emotional words in the whole movie, I tear up every time I watch that scene.)<P>Worst:<BR>1:What would a mere ranger know of these matters. (I don't know, this is about the only bad line I could find for him.)

I don't really want to change my vote, but I wanted to mention one of his lines from the Extended Version:<P>"You carry a great burden, Frodo. Do not carry the weight of the dead."<P>Grr, I can't remember how it began, but that's how the line finished.

I nominate these two:<P>1. Forgive me--I did not see. I have failed you all. Leave it, it is over...the world of men will fall and all will come to darkness... And my city to ruin.<P>2. I only ask for the strength to defend my people! (For the sheer passion that it is delivered with)<P><BR>ALL of Sean Bean's lines were excellent; he did one of the finest jobs I have seen in any recent movie, and he surely deserved at least an Academy Award nomination, perhaps the Award itself. Even lines that were terribly awkward or screamed, "This is what's going on right now, all you newbies" were delivered gracefully and passionately. He put enormous effort into understanding Boromir's character and this easily shows through in his performance, even when some of the lines or actions provided by the script seem out of Boromir's character. A shame that we will see no more of Sean in these movies...<p>[ November 15, 2002: Message edited by: Melichus ]

I though most of Boromirs lines were pretty good<BR>his dying speech and when he was describing minas tirith were SO brilliant, i cry every time i see the bit when he dies <BR>I think his worst lines were after moria and aragorn wants them to get up, I can't remember what he says exactly but I thought it was kinda weird, but i think legolas got the worst lines of any of them.

Did you just say you didn't like the following line?<P>"Give them a moment for pity's sake!"<P>Wow, that is just one more awesome line for Boromir. This could be the closest one yet.

<BLOCKQUOTE>quote:<HR> A shame that we will see no more of Sean in these movies... <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>Actually I think he's in TTT, because they have flashbacks. At least I heard somewhere that they will be spending a lot of time on Faramir, and that it will include flashbacks that involve him and Boromir.<P>He's in the cast list for TTT, at any rate.

Piffle. Once again, my choices were not the choice of the people. I get the impression that I shouldn't run for president any time soon! <P>Okaaaaaay. Saruman . . .riiiight. Best line: When he's yelling at the mountain, 'cause it's elvish!! Even though, he wasn't really powerful, and it was really the mountain, blah blah blah. Poor Mr. Lee was forced to do it, but it's still elvish!<BR>Other best lines: The whole thing about (which I can only remember the last part of) "And Gandalf the Grey rides to Isengard." His voice there! Wowzer!!!!<BR>Oh! And the part about "tear them all down!" heh hhe. "Tha' was good." (To quote Pippin!) <P>Worst line: You have chosen the way of PAIN!!! Brrr. Scary.

I agree Saruman's best line has to be "Smoke rises from mountain of fire and Gandolf the Grey rides to Isengaurd seeking my council, for that is why you have come my old friend. <P>A line that sort of stuck out is "I have seen it". Just the way he says it sounds odd.

I thought Saruman's best line was: The nine have left Minas Morgul something and kill the ones who carries that ring or something. I can't remember the whole thing.<P>worst line..... You have elected the way of Pain!<BR>It wasn't so much the words but how he said it, it was kinda weird

I hope they do a good job on that in TTT or RotK, whichever movie it comes in.<P>Saruman's Worst:<BR>"You know of what I speak, Gandalf, an Eye wreathed in flame."<BR>While that line is good in itself, I don't think that Gandalf ever actually saw the Eye in the book.

1420!

Anything said by Christopher Lee is solid gold. He could bust out with "Kicking donkeys" and make it sound cool...<P>Saruman's lines certainly are the most memorable.

Chris Lee could probably have said "My name is Saruman and I am a white wizard and I have turned bad Gandalf, BAD!" and still made it sound good.<P>He is a phenomenal actor.

My vote for Saruman...<P>Best: Smoke rises from the mountain of Doom, the hour grows late and Gandalf the Gray rides to Isengard seeking my council.<P>Worst: Do you know how the orcs first came in to being?<P>That line just kind of seems wierd to me. I'll give the voting another day and post the results tomorrow.<p>[ November 22, 2002: Message edited by: Firondoiel ]

Saruman's bestest lines: <BR>1)"Yet you did not have the wits to see it. Your love of the Halflings' leaf has clearly slowed your mind."<BR>2)"They will find the ring, and kill the one that carries it."<P>Saruman's worstest lines:<BR>1)"So you have chosen death." (no reason i just don't like it)<p>[ November 24, 2002: Message edited by: Jeli Baggins ]
