That seems... Even more pointless then some of the other cameos [In reply to] Can't Post

I must admit, I'm a bit of a fan of the Mouth of Sauron. Just that great description from Tolkien of how he was once a man but then became twisted. The design in the film was one of the coolest armor designs I've ever seen, and it was such a short scene that they went to so much trouble to film. It only wound up in the Extended Edition though, so I don't see the purpose of trying to bridge that gap, especially since his purpose is literally moot in the film when reinserted. A lot of trouble for little payoff, even if it was just a small piece.

                                That's because the classification system is seriously out of date. Fardragon Send a private message to Fardragon Oct 8 2012, 3:13pm
                                    That's correct, Dinosaurs are now largely considered to be neither reptiles nor birds, but their own specific clade inbetween. // Captain Salt Send a private message to Captain Salt Oct 8 2012, 4:15pm

                                                        That is precisely why "reptile" is a bad category dave_lf Send a private message to dave_lf Oct 8 2012, 7:27pm
