**TORn 10th Anniversary: The "Things You Never Want to People Say" list (long!) Can't Post

I thought this list might provide a nice walk down memory lane. It's been such a long time since I last posted it, after all.

For those unfmiliar with the idea behind this list: it all started with the idea of compiling a list overhearing people saying sily things about the LOTR film trilogy. To get things started, I came up with a few lines that I hadn't heard but of which I thought that could've been said. These are marked 'NHY': 'Not heard Yet.' After that, everyone has been free to add whatever silliness they overheard. Or NHYs they thought up. And yes, the list's still open for new items.

Have fun reading, and feel free to contribute!

75) Well, I don't generally like fantasy, but these movies just don't make it. I mean, I don't understand why the Fellowship got together in the first place. Why do the elf and the dwarf join?

76) Shadowfax is a pack mule. (NHY) – Shadowfaxrules

83) Yeah, the camera work was sensational but there wasn't any acting.– Olorin of the West 83) That was so unreal. None of it could ever take place or happen. Magic and Monsters doesn't exist. – Point Blank

88) A while ago that they overheard a girl in the cinema asking "I don’t understand, why do those two hobbits keep climbing trees, and what happened to that Gollum creature who was with them?" She'd obviously mixed up Frodo and Sam with Merry and Pippin.. – Amatire
89) "That Aragorn guy is so obviously a ranger, it's all a big RPG rip off!" – Amatire

91) TTT is better than FOTR. I felt asleep at the beginning of FOTR. And I didn't feel asleep in TTT, well, not until they started fighting. – Elfmei
92) I don't understand why that Bilbo guy was in it. I mean, what does he do, really? – glorfin2

94) I liked him better as Dumbledore. Obviously referring to Sir Ian. – glorfin2
95) After TTT: God, I hope the next one is better than that! I mean, what did they actually do in this movie? There was just no point to it. – glorfin2

118) The first time I'm seeing FOTR, opening night. It's nearly over. Boromir is defending Merry and Pippin. Uh oh - here comes Lurtz. Arrow #1... And B's back up! Arrow #2... takes a little longer this time... I know what's coming, but I didn't expect PJ to spend this much time on Boromir's death, and tears are pouring down my cheeks, and somewhere around the third arrow, the lovely woman next to me utters the (unfortunately) immortal words: "Die already!" – Aerlinn

121) One of the girls in my Literature class said, "The Hobbit? Oh, I hated that book, it was soo stupid. I mean what was the point? It was awful." etc. until I had to hold my chair so that I wouldn't get up and sock her in the kisser. My teacher said flatly, "That's because you have no imagination." – Eldameldor

136) My Latin teacher: Oh, I know! And the hobbits are so not muna muna! [Muna muna is her word for squishy, chubby and cute. It is also a verb for lightly pinching something that is squishy, chubby and cute. **Muna munas Sean Astin** Hmmm...] – Sandicomm
137) My history and science teachers: GAAHH! TTT ended three chapters early! – Sandicomm
138) My history teacher brought in the FOTR EE on Valentine's Day during our Valentine's Day party (or maybe it was Christmas), and during the Mines of Moria scene, all the jocks were like, "Yeah Strider! Go Strider! Whoo!" – Sandicomm
139) After Gandalf died, a teacher of mine said, "Waugh, I don't want to watch this anymore. It's getting too depressing..." – Sandicomm

145) Someone at my school actually came up to me, knowing that I like LOTR and said: "Did you know there's another one coming out?" It’s incredible how clueless some people are. – Celebrantiel
146) Also, when I first rented FOTR some lady at Blockbuster said: "I wouldn't rent that if I were you. It's really hard to follow. You sit through it for 3 hours and then, at the end, the ring still isn't destroyed. It was the biggest waste of time ever." Again, incredible. – Celebrantiel

154) Lord of the Rings? Is that one of the WWF championship matches? (WWF is wrestling!) – Lady Elizabeth

156) Another friend said she'd tried to read the books several years ago but didn't get past the first book because she found it too boring (strange lass). Anyway, she was dragged along by her family to see FOTR and later said to me she liked the scenery etc but didn't enjoy the film. In particular, she said she found the beginning of it (i.e. Hobbiton etc) too 'twee'. Aargh!! – ArwenOddstar
157) Several other people have made comments along the lines of "it's just too long" or "it does drag on a bit doesn't it". Then I say you obviously haven't read the books. Then they'll say "you mean there's more than one?" – ArwenOddstar
158) When my dad and me were watching FOTR together, he reacted to Gollum in Moria as "What is that? Oh. It's a monkey. Ok." – Stephabuffy

164) "Hey, what was the name of that really hot guy in the movie? The blond one." – ?
165) (When TTT trailer started showing up places)"Whoa!! Did you know they're making a sequel to Lord of the Rings?" – Celebrantiel
166) (After seeing TTT)"Wow, that was a *really* confusing movie. I didn't know who anyone was. And why did it start in the middle of a story?" "Did you see FOTR?" "No, would that have helped?" – Celebrantiel
167) "Didn't Aragorn die in FOTR?" – Celebrantiel
168) "Yeah, it was sooooo funny in TTT when the horse was kissing Aragorn! That was the best part of the movie." – Celebrantiel
169) "I'm confused about FOTR. What happened to that Strider guy? He disappeared once they got to Rivendell." – Celebrantiel

171) They thought it was about Muhammad Ali. Lord of the BOXING Rings. Really. – Taryαvλwen

173) It's always annoying when people say they don’t like the movies because they get confused because all the human men look alike "with long hair and beards". – Macca
174) "we thought it was one of the best put-together movies we've ever seen, but we walked out because the characters weren't going anywhere, and we heard there were two more movies." – jadeshadow
175) ...Wasn't that that movie with the blonde chick who was in love with the king-guy or whatever who was in love with the elf-chick or something? Yeah, I think I remember seeing that one." – Frodo’s lady of Rohan
176) Lord of the Rings? Isn't that a boxing movie? – EowynDernhelm
177) "I like the Two Towers better because it's more realistic." He's referring to the fact that more people died. I don't know, maybe it's just me but I think it's kinda of a weird statement considering LOTR is a fantasy story. – WhiteAslan
178) the bit where Gandalf catches Sam eavesdropping and Sam says "Please don’t turn me into anything… unnatural" The next scene is set at dawn and the first thing you can see Gandalf is stealthily leading a horse. A girl about three rows down from me called out "OH MY GOD - Gandalf's turned him into a HORSE" – Celede
179) "Wait - So who's the Lord of the Rings? The bad guy in X-men or that one idget.. What's his name? Oh yeah, Frodo!" – Atticus
180) "So Sarah, who's this King that's s'pose to Return?" "Well, Kevin, that would be Aragorn." "You mean that guy who has those dirty dreams about that hot elf chick in Armageddon?!?" – Atticus

181) "Are Boromir and Faramir related?" – Atticus
182) "I thought that Thιoden guy's son got killed...But how come he comes back at the end with Gandalf?" – Atticus
183) "I thought that Dobby-Rip-off guy was Gollum...How come they call him Smeagol?" – Atticus
184) A friend of mine has the biggest problem with the names. Bless her, she at least attempts them, but here's a few examples of her handiwork: Sam Gamwise; Aragron; Rimorob (don't ask me how she came up with that one...); Piper Take; Fariwere – Amrunofthesummercountry
185) One time, after seeing TTT, she asked me, "Diana, why was that Fariwere guy so mean to the little frog man? Was that in the book, or did they make it up?" It took me five minutes to understand what she was asking... – Amrunofthesummercountry
186) My mother is also still quite confused on the whole race thing. "So that Frodo-whatsit, he's an elf?" "Is that Strider guy an elf?" "What about that one? Is *that* an elf?" Yes, she thinks that everyone is an elf. – Amrunofthesummercountry
187) My lovely little brother asked me one time why Aragorn didn't just shoot the orcs. Not with a bow and arrow, but with a gun.

188) He also thought that Eowyn was Arwen and asked "Wait....they don't have guns, but she can change her hair colour?" – Amrunofthesummercountry

193) While standing in line for Trilogy Tuesday tickets one person while coming out of the theatre saw me standing in line and he read the sign LOTR tickets and asked if I was getting lottery tickets (if I knew just how perilously few of the tickets that there were for people who actually waited in line [50 tickets--rest went to phone and internet sales--300 tix in all]--these indeed were LOTR Lottery tickets)--I had to laugh but I then told the man that I was waiting in line for the Trilogy Tuesday event and he looked at me strangely because I showed up in line 16 hours before the box office opened for the next day!

206) Every time Elrond showed up on screen, some guy behind me said "Look! It's Agent Smith!" – Faerie-lady of Rohan
207) My Dad on ROTK: "You think the movie is going to end like five different times! 'Okay, Frodo's destroyed the Ring, now the movie can end...No, wait, We have to make Aragorn King. Okay, NOW the movie can end...No, hey, they all have to go home! I'M ready to go home...Oh, now Sam and Rosie have to get married...Great, now the movie can end...oh, Bilbo's going away. Bye Bilbo!

Guess the whole message of pity didn't really sink in, huh? – DublinLass52

216) When Gollum reappeared at Mt. Doom: "No. Way." – DublinLass52

235) Start an Orc sing-a-long. (10,000 Orcs are coming along, 10,000 Orcs are coming, If 1 was shot down and rolled around, how many Orcs are there left standing? Sung to the tune of "99 Bottles Of Beer On The Wall" - sing till no more Orcs are left or you get kicked out (whichever happens first) – Vernien_xia
236) Come to the premiere dressed as Harry Potter and wander around looking terribly confused, asking "Where's Voldemort?" – Vernien_xia

At the end of the movie my friend's grandmother groaned and exclaimed "That was just way too long, they should have just ended the whole thing when they were all happy in heaven". We found out later that she was referring to Rivendell when she said "heaven". – Pip Hearts Pints
248) Just as the movie was starting, a family came in and sat down right in front of me. Grrrr.....anyway, the mother leaned over to her husband and said "whoever cast that Frodo guy ought to be shot. That's the ugliest dude I ever saw!" – Jordan the Dissursive
249) "I can't wait until the long version when they put back whatever scene that they cut out when they faded to black right before the birds came. I really want to know what happens then!"

250) The cinematography wasn't that good. – joeyjojo

261) "Minus the music, It's all just mountains." – r2k2dbprice
262) One of my very best friends, who actually is a big Tolkien fan, fell asleep during Helm's Deep. In fairness to her, it was an opening-night midnight showing, so by that point it must have been after 2 a.m. – Lottelita
263) Legolas does look like a girl. That Haldir chick was pretty hot too. – ents marching

It was hard to watch. – Ainu Laire
266) -"Behind you, d*** it!" was shouted when Shelob was sneaking up on Frodo. Whole theatre burst out laughing. – Ainu Laire

Some big guy starts making comments about the delinquent high school kids that come to such late movies and how horrible their parents must be to let them come. My physics professor taps him on the shoulder and says, "excuse me sir, I'm their teacher and we're here to mathematically prove how deep the chasm of Khazad-dum is." – Laureanna
277) the same night, a few rows up, prior to the start of the film, and my friend Mike calls down the row: "Hey, Tiffany! What did you get on your SAT?" and Tif, now quite used to the antic, answers, "1600 Mike!" and yes that was her actual score, and we do like to take advantage of the fact... – Laureanna
278) Knowledge Bowl question, along the lines of "A character in "the Hobbit" with a sword.." the other team breaks off the question to answer: "Frodo!" (and the answer was "Gandalf" and the sword was Glambring.) – Laureanna
279) After ROTK: "So why did Frodo have to leave, I don't get it" – tosaane
280) A friends husband: "How could ROTK be nominated for Best Cinematography when it's all basically CGI and bluescreens anyway?" – LostHamster

281) My husband: "I fell asleep during the theatre version, why would I want to watch an extended DVD?" – LostHamster

288) As another trilogy session approaches, I asked a new friend if he was interested in going. "Oh I love LOTR! I especially like..... um.....", then spends next 5 minutes trying to remember name. Turns out it was Gollum. – Kerewyn
289) After watching FOTR for the first time, my mother, when asked whether she liked the movie, replied, "oh, I don't know, it's so much like a fantasy story..." – Olσtie
290) 'You remember who Eowyn is, right?' replied: 'Oh, yeah! He's the one who lived with the fairies, right?' – arwλon

293) "I didn't see it - I don't like movies set in outer space." – Annael
294) A friend couldn’t remember the names of the characters, so she called them The Guy With The Arrows (Boromir), The Other Guy (Aragorn), The Guy With The Hat (Gandalf), The Pointy-Eared Guy (Legolas), The Short One (Frodo) and The Other Short One (Gimli). Identifying Sam, Merry and Pippin was beyond her. But then she also thought the ugly evil creatures were Yorks, so… – Ataahua
295) What I hear, although it's not strictly about the movies is generally something along the lines of "some day you're going to grow up" or some variation thereof. I don't even bother to respond. – Lossefalme3

297) A friend's grandmother, referring to Frodo struggling up Mt. Doom: “What is she doing?” – Finding Frodo
298) I always keep a Visual Companion on my desk at work. I work with many college students every day so over the years have gotten many comments. But, the one that really floored me was: "My boyfriend and I walked out after the first 1/2 hour. We had no idea what was going on and it was so boring". She obviously had comprehension issues, that's why she was my student in the first place. – Mar
299) From my own dear sis, no less: “Frodo was really annoying in ROTK, he looked so constipated throughout.” – linkinparkelf
300) Although, I remember Larry King interviewing Sean Astin and he introduces Sean as one of the stars of the LOTR movies. I'm pretty sure he refers to him as "Sam GAMGHEE" (with a soft "g") instead of Gamgee (with the hard "g"). Sean politely corrects him, "Gamgee, Samwise Gamgee." Larry has this way of looking at Sean as though Sean is mistaken. Ugh. He should have known better. – snap cotton

301) I recall someone remarking that "those twins don't look alike at all". She was referring to Merry and Pippin. – snap cotton
302) Here's one I overheard at the LOTR Exhibition in Sydney, between 2 teenage girls: GIRL 1: "Sam and Frodo were so whiney." GIRL 2: "Yeah, there's no good characters except Legolas and Aragorn." GIRL 1: "And the dwarf - what's his name?" GIRL 2: "Uh... Grim." GIRL 1: "Yeah, Grim." – Kerewyn
303) (from a celebrity announcer who does the 'arts program' at our radio station) "Lord of the Rings - what a load of rubbish that was!" – Kerewyn
304) (from a colleague who went to see ROTK, but had never seen FOTR or TTT) "I didn't really get it." – Kerewyn
305) (from US comedian Arj Barker) My girlfriend was going, "oh those trolls were so fake, you could totally tell they were CGI". I said, "yeah you're right, maybe they should have used REAL cave trolls." – Kerewyn
306) (my mother) "I saw FOTR but I just couldn't follow the story coz I got so distracted trying to figure out which were computer effects and which was real." – Kerewyn
307) "It was too violent." – Annael
308) "I didn't see it - I don't like movies set in outer space." – Annael

So... Frodo does practically the least work and gets all the credit?
Frodo stumbles and falls around throughout 90% of the Trilogy, always getting rescued by everyone else around him, yet he basically gets all the credit in the end for destroying the ring (which I'm not sure if that fall of the cliff with Gollum was intentional).

The first 21 are already in my list, actually. I'll add the last one too. They're originally from Vernien_xia, according to my list. That's correct, right (as in, made by somebody else (you?) and wrongly credited)?
I'll mark them as "Things NOT to say (or do) during "Return of the King".

They're all over the net [In reply to] Can't Post

I think my son gave me this list just after ROTK came out. I could swear I got a list that had something about going to a restaurant and shouting "Looks like meat's back on the menu, boys." but I don't know where that's from!

I did read part of you list... but not all (sheepish look). I was actually looking through old files for something else entirely when I saw this and opened it up.

This was so upsetting [In reply to] Can't Post

"Hey, wake up! Gandalf just died!"

The idea that someone could sleep through Moria, AND that someone would have the audacity to wake them up during my mourning period, is enraging.

Love these quotes... [In reply to] Can't Post

Will try to think of some additions.......

~*Haudh-en-Ndengin the Elves named it, the Hill of Slain, and Haugh-en-Nirnaeth, the Hill of tears... the earth beneath which the swords of the Eldar and the Edain crumbled into rust*~
