Silmaril Corniest lines in LOTR

Which line do you think was the corniest in any of the Lord of the Rings movies and why? Sorry, I can't think of any right now, but I'm just curious to see your opinion.

its not a line, but that Shadowfax bit... *shudders*<P>those lines legolas kept on spurting out. eg.<BR>"they runs as if the very whips of their masters were behind them"<P>oh, and this is one of my favourite lines, but it deserves a Corny Award:<P>"Let her take the ship to the undying lands. there it will be evergreen!"

Hmm, so many.<BR>Legolas: "A shadow and a threat have been growing in my mind..."<BR>"A red dawn. Blood has been spilled this night."<BR>Pretty much anything he says. (I did sorta like the "WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!" phrase)<BR>Aragorn: "Let's hunt some orc."<BR>"What do your elf eyes see?"<BR>Merry: "Tree herders! The shepherds of the forest!"<P>I could name a whole lot more, but it makes me angry.

I think one of the worst lines is when Galadriel says in Frodo's head<P>"Welcome, Frodo Baggins of the Shire. One who has seen the eye!"<P>Basically because they made Galadriel WAY too creepy in the movie, and in the books, Frodo NEVER saw the eye until he looked into the Mirror.

In TT when the Uruks have taken a breather and the one says something about maggotty bread, then that other one goes, "Yeah!" Just the way he says it makes me cringe. Corny city.<P>And then Merry and Pippin's whole forest-dialogue. Oh, I can't believe I'm criticizing them! But it's <I>so stupid!</I><BR>Especially the part where he's all "Trees that could whisper, talk to each other, even MOVE." I absolutely HATE the way he says "Even MOVE!"

"A chance for Faramir, Captain of Gondor, to show his quality." I just wanted to jump up and shout, "WAAAH! Somebody call the WAAAAH-mbulance!" (why not counter a corny line with an even cornier one?) Not that I have anything against Faramir or anything, but... guh.<P>Another one that had me itching to jump up and shout, "Naaaah, REALLY!?" was: "There is a foul voice on the air!"

Gimli-"Not the beard!"<BR>And many others, the "Let's go hunt some orc" was the line that when I first saw the movie I was saying to myself that it was the cornest line in the entire movie. Additionally how did Merry get all smart about the ents, he just seemed to know everything about them. I forgot how much that "and MOVE" line annoys me.<p>[ March 31, 2003: Message edited by: Gorwingel ]

Just about anything Arwen says. Especially when she shows up to help "rescue" Frodo. I just wanted to stand up and scream, "WE KNOW HE'S NOT GONNA LAST!! JUST GET YOUR PASTY BUTT ON THAT HORSE AND GET OUT OF HERE!" Honestly...

*laughs* I know exactly what you mean, SF. I'm thinking "Maybe if you hadn't spent so much time teasing Aragorn and trying to slit his throat, and taunting Ringwraiths, you might have gotten Frodo to Rivendell before he threw up all over himself

How about the line that Galadriel says to Frodo of "Even the smallest person can change the course of the future", when I heard that one I was like "duh!"

You guys are going to trample me dead when I post this, but I don't think that any of the <I>lines</I> are actually corny. I thought there were maybe 2, 3, maybe 4 lines that the actors didn't deliver well, but not the lines themselves were the problem.

Yeah, I like most of the corny lines too, especially Legolas's. "Meat's on the menu" was great! I do snicker over "One who has seen the EYE" hee hee!

The knife-licking is right out of Tolkien, only it was Gorbag or Shagrat. But it's pure orc.<P>The corniest stuff to me was the stuff that the real Frodo Baggins would NEVER say. For instance, Book-Frodo doesn't lie. Ever. <P>To Faramir about Gollum: "There was no other." 'Scuse me? <P>His line to Aragorn in Bree: "I carry nothing." 'Scuse me?<P>Book-Frodo NEVER lies, and if he even has to twist things (as in, Gollum at the pool) he feels guilty as heck. He doesn't lie. To Faramir: "I told no lies, and all the truth I could."<P>As usual, I think Elijah Wood did the best he could with what he had-- but I thought PJ relied way too much on Elijah's mastery of facial expressions and robbed him of a lot of good lines. Elijah Wood can act and act well, but PJ didn't let him very often. Anyway, that's the thing I find corny-- Movie-Frodo is **less** than Book-Frodo. And he didn't have to be.

"You shall be the Fellowship....of the Ring!" <P>Ack... It was just horrible! Especially the music playing at the same time! The cheese was running down the screen and pooling at the bottom... <P>And, of course, "If you want him...come and claim him!" and, "Let's hunt some Orc!", but they go without saying... <P>I think that corny lines largely depend on the way that they're delivered, but some of the lines in FotR and tTT are corny <B>whoever</B> says them!

I think the funniest thing in the movie wasn't a line, but that look elrond gives merry and pippin when they run into his "Secret meeting", he looks like he's thinking "burst into flames, burst into flames, burst into flames"

I also liked Pippin's "So, where are we going?" accompanied by <B>that</B> look...makes me laugh every time! (And also a perfect end to the first disc in the extended edition)<BR>One line which does make me cringe is Galadriel's "Even the smallest person ......." Delivered in such a patronising way!

<BLOCKQUOTE>quote:<HR> The corniest line is easily "If you want him, come and claim him!" <HR></BLOCKQUOTE> Okay, I'll have to contradict this statement by me: <BLOCKQUOTE>quote:<HR> You guys are going to trample me dead when I post this, but I don't think that any of the lines are actually corny. I thought there were maybe 2, 3, maybe 4 lines that the actors didn't deliver well, but not the lines themselves were the problem. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE> But only by a little. I did think the whole "if you want him, come and claim him" thing was cheesy, corny, phony, fake....you get the gist, don't you? But I feel insulted at all of the other ones you guys are saying. I mean, some of the others are slightly corny, but certainly not all. If there were that many corny lines, all that the movie forum would be is a bemoaning of PJs works. Some of these lines that you posted make me crack up when I see them (such as the look on Elrond's face) and I think they're slightly corny, but in a bad way. Still, I don't agree with you people. *dodges rotten eggs*
