Posted:What is your favorite LOTR character and why? It can be from the movie or book. Mine is Frodo because I can identify with his quest and struggle over following the path that is put before him and trusting that what he is doing is what is meant to be. Also his struggle of choosing between the tempting powerful darkness or the often difficult path of light.

Posted:Viggo makes a legendary Aragorn. You gotta admire an actor who takes his character that seriously.

Aragorn has my vote. I like heroes like that.

Posted:I agree gnor. The actor who played Gimli was also exceptional. I heard on the radio that the movie has already won a couple of awards.

Posted:For pretty pathetic / girlie reasons I would have to say Legolas. Yes Orlando Bloom is exceedingly sexy (esp as Legolas) but having a passion for archery and men with pointy ears helps.. And he just gets such great stunts in the films! -that swinging onto the horse scene from TT, i still melt with glee every time i watch it........
and the way he just prances around like a, a, well like an elf! biggrin ubblove biggrin ubblove

Posted:My favorite Tolkien character is Forbode, but you dont see him in LOTR, if I would have to choose an LOTR character it would be Tom Bombadil. Reason being, he is the only Vara on the side of good that you see in LOTR. Sauron is also Vara, as is his brother Forbode. Ahh the history, those who have just come to know of Tolkien, just sit back cause there is more than you can imagine!!

Posted:i have to agree aragorn is an awesome character. i also rather enjoy legolas, not just for the obvious HOT reasons, but because i like how his character is cool-headed and calm, but still can make light of a situation.

and i like the 4 hobbits....they make me laugh.

Have to disagree there DB..because its all about mememememememememememe AND Aragorn of course.
It is such an awesome cast and film that all of the characters are amazing.
My boys do LOTR play all the time and one of them loves to play Boromir and do the death scene.

Posted:Gollum.

Seconldy I would pick bilbo. The hobbit was way better of a book then any of the LOTR books IMO.

Does anyone else really hope peter jackson will make a hobbit movie?

Posted:King Kong is in post production at the moment and is due for release at xmas '04, I think.

Also, Ian McKellen (Gandalf) more or less insinuated in an interview last week that Jackson WILL be making the Hobbit, but not before 2005. Happy days!!!! ubbrollsmile

My fav has to be the Silmarillion, though unfortunately I can't imagine that ever being filmed frown

Posted:treebeard is my favourite character by far biggrin

standing in the ruins of isengard he idly crushes boulders while he thinks, hrum hroom!

closely followed by tom bombadil who acts like he's a complete space cadet but hints at the fact that he's one of the baddest muthafukkas around. cool
