Aragorn versus Nikolai Can't Post

As long as we're matching movie roles, why not Aragorn against Nikolai in "Eastern Promises"? And just to even the match up a bit, let's put it on Nikolai's turf--Setting: Steam bath, with slippery tiles. Equipment: Nothing. Nada. Naked warriors. Let the games begin!

My monies on Nikolai... [In reply to] Can't Post

After seeing the knife fight in the sauna, Nikolai made a believer out of me. He would have Aragorn tied up and professionally processed, flouting down the Anduin river in no time flat.

Oh, that's right [In reply to] Can't Post

I forgot. There was a knife. (How could I forget an essential detail like that, when there was, you know, blood and everything? Let's just say the whole scene was a mite distracting. Blush )

Okay, so they get one knife, lain on the ground equidistant from both of them.

You know this is very hard one because.. [In reply to] Can't Post

neither Aragorn or Nikolai would start the fight.

Understandable Misunderstanding [In reply to] Can't Post

Aragorn does not know that Nikolai is merely infiltrating a criminal organization, for a government unknown to him. He thinks Nikolai really does want to do horrible things to innocent Gondor farmgirls eager to start a new life in a distant land. That's motive enough for a fight between "kings".

Well in that case..... [In reply to] Can't Post

I guess Id have to go with Aragorn, because he has the larger umm sword, and all poor Nikolai has is a very short knife.

One only [In reply to] Can't Post

One knife between them. That's the rules. Equidistant from both. As for anything else, aside from the fact that Nikolai is slightly heavier, notably cleaner, more decorated, beardless, and has shorter hair, they are identically equipped.

Two wet slippery guys grappling naked in a steambath. This is really not a scenario I'd care to visualize.

Now if you want me to imagine Arwen and Eowyn in a similar situation, I'm so there!!

******************************************
The audacious proposal stirred his heart. And the stirring became a song, and it mingled with the songs of Gil-galad and Celebrian, and with those of Feanor and Fingon. The song-weaving created a larger song, and then another, until suddenly it was as if a long forgotten memory woke and for one breathtaking moment the Music of the Ainur revealed itself in all glory. He opened his lips to sing and share this song. Then he realized that the others would not understand. Not even Mithrandir given his current state of mind. So he smiled and simply said "A diversion.

I'm glad I can't make a picture. [In reply to] Can't Post

I haven't seen "Eastern Promises", but I don't care for the setting as described. I don't like the Arwen Eowyn thing either.

Distracting I'm sure! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'd have to give the edge to Aragorn! Just!

I just saw the movie today [In reply to] Can't Post

I was wincing throughout the whole fight, and, to be honest, my eyes were closed half the time. It was just... wow. Well done, but... well, just... you know... *cough*

I think the two would first be stunned by the fact that they both look so alike one another. XD

I'm going to say Aragorn. Just because I can't let go of my allegiance to him ;) But it would be a ridiculously close match. Maybe they'd just settle for a draw and have a cup of java together. Yea.

Gosh I have been thinking on this for a long time and.... [In reply to] Can't Post

I still can't make up my mind. Aragorn has the raw power, but Nikolai has the dexterity.

Dexterity [In reply to] Can't Post

Oh, I imagine that anybody raised by elves would be dextrous enough.
