Denethor

3. Who gives Pippin a leg up into Gandalf's cart at Bilbo's party?
Merry

4. What kind of lettering was used to inscribe the words on the one Ring?
Tengwar script... is that what you're asking. Language is Black Speech.

5. What weapon's in the hand of the Argonath statue on the eastern riverbank?
A weapon of mass distraction... I've just been itching to use that phrase and I don't know the answer... if I were to guess, I'd guess Narsil.

6. What large outdoor set in FOTR was built on an old army base?
ooh... ooh... I know this... don't tell me... uh... no I don't. Best guess: the Pelennor Fields.

Remember: You can be serious or humorous in your replies!

The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.

after 'looking it up' [In reply to] Can't Post

I want change my answer for
5. What weapon's in the hand of the Argonath statue on the eastern riverbank?

I looked at the FOTR posters, and if I have my directions right (and I won't look *this* up), then the answer would be

>>an axe<<

I think they're going south on the river which means (she puts imaginary map on the floor and faces south on it) that east is the left hand side of the bank.

Will not go look up the answer to question 6.

Tricksy. [In reply to] Can't Post

She says five but posts six. *watches for other trickses*

1. Who's Theoden talking to when he says, "the last time I looked" you were not Rohan's king?
Aragorn.

2. Who sits on a small throne next to the main one when Pippin arrives in Minas Tirith?
My father-in-law-to-be. I mean Denethor.

3. Who gives Pippin a leg up into Gandalf's cart at Bilbo's party?
Merry, who shortly after chomps on an apple which isn't too sanitary now that I think about it.

4. What kind of lettering was used to inscribe the words on the one Ring?
"It's some form of Elvish -- I can't read it."

5. What weapon's in the hand of the Argonath statue on the eastern riverbank?
They both had swords, which I remember only because one was supposed to have an axe.

6. What large outdoor set in FOTR was built on an old army base?
? Well, the Shire was in a sheep pasture... Rivendell was a model... so was Weathertop except when I *think* it was soundstage... Um. Amon Hen?

Okay, quizzies definitely need to be read in threaded form.

after reading Aerlinn's post I'm wondering if the FOTR posters deceived me!

But, if I really cared, I'd get obsessive on y'all and load up the movie. And I will not get obsessive. Just watch me not do that.

Never go by me! [In reply to] Can't Post

My memory is not what you'd call famous for its reliability. I think it's the other way 'round from what I thought, and you and your poster are quite right. . At least from the little Googling I just did.

And then I found this:

well, I'd be quite happy if I turn out to be right... [In reply to] Can't Post

Although I can't claim it as 'closed book'. I'm mostly having fun with my own inner need to be completely right. And I would be completely right only by devoting large amounts of time to checking and rechecking. It's fun, sometimes, to do that, but by rights I shouldn't even be here... so I will show my capacity for growth and not only post an answer I'm unsure of... I'll waffle on my answer a whole bunch of times. So *not* the old obsessive me that I know so well.

(And I'm also trying to be chattier since I've been pretty reserved up till now at TORn)

oooh.. I just realized that picture is moving! Or I am.

Addendum to #6: [In reply to] Can't Post

I looked at screen caps and couldn't tell what the left hand one was holding, then I thought to get our models of the Argonath and he is holding an axe. Very hard to see and tell what it is, it blends into his sleeve. So I am saying axe!

In Reply To
Welcome to Movie Trivial Pursuit!

In honor of our new Board, I'm going to post the questions from one Movie Trivial Pursuit card each day this week. (Five questions a day).

Here are your first five questions:

1. Who's Theoden talking to when he says, "the last time I looked" you were not Rohan's king?

A scruffy looking guy who turned up out of nowhere and seems to think he can take charge.

2. Who sits on a small throne next to the main one when Pippin arrives in Minas Tirith?

The Main Man, who seems to think this is a gesture of humility but isn't fooling anyone.

3. Who gives Pippin a leg up into Gandalf's cart at Bilbo's party?

His partner in crime.

4. What kind of lettering was used to inscribe the words on the one Ring?

Elvish script, which is uncomfortably beautiful for the Dark Lord, but he couldn't be bothered to invent his own.

5. What weapon's in the hand of the Argonath statue on the eastern riverbank?

Lessee, which way is East, again? They're moving South... The guy on the right (West) has a sword (Elendil and Narsil, I presume, movie-verse). I can't see a weapon on the other one (presumably Isildur).

6. What large outdoor set in FOTR was built on an old army base?

Must be Hobbiton. Rivendell was in a park, and I don't think anything else qualifies as a 'large outdoor set' in that movie.

The last one is confusing... [In reply to] Can't Post

1. Who's Theoden talking to when he says, "the last time I looked" you were not Rohan's king?

Aragorn

2. Who sits on a small throne next to the main one when Pippin arrives in Minas Tirith?

Denethor

3. Who gives Pippin a leg up into Gandalf's cart at Bilbo's party?

Merry

4. What kind of lettering was used to inscribe the words on the one Ring?

Written in Elvish, it's the Black Speech of Mordor

5. What weapon's in the hand of the Argonath statue on the eastern riverbank?

Well, if you're looking at it as the camera passes it in the movie, it's a sword in Elendil's hand... on the opposite shore, it's Isildur with an ax.

6. What large outdoor set in FOTR was built on an old army base?

I don't remember this... As far as I know, the only full sets actually built for LOTR that were not built on car parks were Rivendell (in the middle of a park) and Hobbiton (on a farmer's land), unless you mean Bree, but wasn't that also built on a car park?

I find #6 confusing... [In reply to] Can't Post

To me, a set is something complete (like Hobbiton & Rivendell)... Amon Hen & Weathertop is not a set, but rather a location shoot because it just involves a few props. So I have no idea what weaver means by that question.
