    My last post was deleterated, so I'll try again. Who is your favorite lord of the rings character? I've only got the people up to where I am in Two Towers, so forgive me if I missed some.

    Personally, i voted Gimli. He's got a fiery temper, and is always quick to anger and then quick to peace.

    there's so many i missed. But I can't have em all. and i didn't even have room for other. so just say if your favorite character is someone else, like the Balrog, or wormtongue, or one of the Sackville-Bagginses

  4. i'm going with the hottie elf too. just give legolas the ring and he'll walk it in to mordor himself, because he's that badass.

    that's legolas for you broken angel
    (oops too late)
     
  6. Well. In the book its Aragorn/Strider. He is by far the coolest mainly cos he is tough as nails. But in the film, I would say Legolas is cooler apart from his ridiculous hair do. Damn hippy.

    But character wise, well, they're all pretty shallow arent they. I think the "best" as in greatest portrayl was Boromir, in the film that is.

    In the film, I like the hottie elf too. Which means Arwen! Legolas, he's a pansy. ;)

    Now in the books, though, I really dig Gollum, and Sam. The ending is so sad, I seriously cried the first time i read it.
     
  10. i would say Gandalf, but i had to go with Sauron

    hey, can we have some support for gimli
     
  15. Oh yeah, Eomer's sister is Eowyn, with a funny mark over the o. Just read book 2. Now if my sister will tell me where book 3 is, I will finish the series.

    Rock on

  16. I actually voted for Sauron..I mean he's so cool! He's all evil, and he's has that large mace thingumabob that sends people flying "helluva far"..and then he turns into a large flaming eye!
    Then there's the Ring Wraiths..man they kick ass, they're exactly how I thought they were when I read the book.
    (Note: yes I like the evil people..I dunno why I do. But I just do. Possibly 'cuz they look cooler)

    Oh yeah...Gandalf's really cool too.

    I always liked Eomer, he's just so cool. :)
     
  19. I would definately have to say either Legolas or Gandalf. Legolas had quite the impressive moves during the fight scenes, however Gandalf is just a classic character overall. I can't make up my mind...
