You get a very good look at Thranduil's staff in the last one.

If that robe flip actually occurs in the film...oh my.

Robes & Capes & Kings! [In reply to] Can't Post

Okay' KING Theodan had a Robe/Cape,
but he didn't do alot with it.

While possessed by Saraman
He used it to stay warm.

Riding to WAR (Helm's Deep & The Fields of Pellenor)
he looked TRULY Great!

Denethor (Although jus' a Steward)
His Robe/Cape was, More elaborate than Theodan's
...THAN his real position in Life,
so that added to his
"OverReaching" attitude
towards his position, as a Steward of Gondor.

Now Thrany's Robe REALLY gets some action..
A Prop like THAT
can be used to Great Effect!
(Waycool to see Dan Henna in the First shot
helping coach him on How to make it
Kingly Special)

Thor's Robe/Cape in Prologue Erebor was
used to Help establish that
he is Short,
by letting it drag on the Floor.

Betcha Dollars for Donuts...
Costumes with Robes/Capes
will be sold ALOT
for Costumes coming, Next Halloween!

There was One such Moment in LOTR [In reply to] Can't Post

Gandalf and Aragorn, Legolas, & Gimli
were stripped of their Weapons by Hama.

Entered the Golden Hall,
yet Grimi screams...
"I Told you to take his STAFF!"

So, Troops attack Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas
BUT, A, L, & G..Take down all of them...

THEN..., Gandalf FLINGS open his Grey Cloak...
Revealing "Gandalf the WHITE!"

Great use of a Cloak, played wonderfully
by Sir IAN!

Can your heart handle the fabulousness? [In reply to] Can't Post

Ok, I can't seem to stop giggling over this! Does anyone really, really, really think this robe flip will actually happen in the movie? While it is quite sassy, it is also just a smidge over the top. I think Thranduil has the potential to be a very deep and complex character and I don't want that to be too overshadowed by his apparent fabulousness. Tongue

Anyway, I wonder how long it took Lee to perfect that super haughty/prideful look? My, oh, my, he does look good...(Note to self: remember to bring bucket to theater to catch my drool during Thrandul scenes!)

My favorite speech from the entire LOTR series: Sam:“It’s like in the great stories Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were, and sometimes you didn’t want to know the end, because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was after so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come and when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those are the stories that stayed with you, that meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand, I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances at turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going because they were holding on to something.” Frodo: “What are we holding on to, Sam?” Sam: “That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo, and it’s worth fighting for!”

Yup, Thorin is a heart-stopper for me as well. Mr. Majestic in spades! But just judging solely by what we've seen of Thranduil thus far, I'd say he's living up to my hopes and expectations, i.e. he's proud to the point of arrogance, vain and, looking at this latest clip with the cloak-flinging, a bit of a drama-queen! I love it! (But as far as attraction, I don't go for the pretty boys that the elves exemplify.)

I see Elrond instantly has to try to emulate Thranduil [In reply to] Can't Post

He must be a very jealous Half-Elf.

Nice one.

Is there a Tolkien topic that you have wanted to look into more deeply and write about your thoughts on it? If so, we'd like to hear from you for the next TORn Amateur Symposium- coming in November. Happy writing!

That's really quite something! [In reply to] Can't Post

Some people really have a natural gift for writing parodies and that one was very good! Kinda wish I hadn't watched the accompanying video though...now I know what people mean when they say there are some things you just can't un-see!Crazy

My favorite speech from the entire LOTR series: Sam:“It’s like in the great stories Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were, and sometimes you didn’t want to know the end, because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was after so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come and when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those are the stories that stayed with you, that meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand, I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances at turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going because they were holding on to something.” Frodo: “What are we holding on to, Sam?” Sam: “That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo, and it’s worth fighting for!”

(As a long time RHPS fan, I watch it at least once a year! Cool)

Those look fabulous! [In reply to] Can't Post

I can't wait to see Lee Pace as Thranduil! I hope that robe flip is in the film. He looks so masterful and powerful when he does it, like he means business. Love his design and that staff is cool!

Thorin's Majesty vs. Thranduil's Sass? [In reply to] Can't Post

Yeah, it's been done: http://thorinissomajestic.tumblr.com/...-basically-the-movie

Caution: This blog celebrates Thorin's majesty and is seriously addictive. Laugh

"I had forgotten that. It is hard to be sure of anything among so many marvels. The world is all grown strange. Elf and Dwarf in company walk in our daily fields; and folk speak with the Lady of the Wood and yet live; and the Sword comes back to war that was broken in the long ages ere the fathers of our fathers rode into the Mark! How shall a man judge what to do in such times?"

"As he ever has judged. Good and ill have not changed since yesteryear; nor are they one thing among Elves and Dwarves and another among Men. It is a man's part to discern them, as much in the Golden Wood as in his own house."
