Does anyone have any orcs or Uruk-Hai that stand out for them? Can't Post

This is my first time starting a thread so I don't know if this has been discussed before but I was wondering if anyone has a favourite Orc or Uruk?
Either because they are particularly menacing or funny or just stand out to you for some reason?
I have a few but ill just name 2:
1: the Orc that shouts 'catapults' in ROTK with the skull on his head. I read some posts by some others who liked this one. He says his line with such macabre glee. And he is grotesque but humourous to behold.
2. Also from ROTK (same battle sequence even) there is an Orc in the first close up group shown when they are all chanting "Grond". He is the lightest one in the scene- front left- (I'd be surprised if anyone remembers him without viewing it) he is throwing his arm in the air and chanting. He looks like he could be cheering at a football match. He intrigues me for some reason.

Oh you have pictures.. That's clever. [In reply to] Can't Post

I need to learn a few tricks for these forums ;). I'm watching ROTK right now. I'm about to see that first one. And then the third one so ill be on the look out. I just watched the part at Osgiliath though and I can't remember the second one... Is he the one who makes a clicking noise? The first one is great. Looks a bit punk rock!!

And to be honest this guy hasn't stood out to me before but I'm on the look at for him now. I think I'm so distracted by the horses and music I'm not looking at nasty orcses. But he seems to be a crowd pleaser so I'm looking forward to it :)

At Minas Tirith [In reply to] Can't Post

According to Star Wars Wikia there's at least three of them with this facial pattern. I remember one of them jumping out of one of the siege towers.

Oh my goodness I just saw them watching it in freeze frame [In reply to] Can't Post

I wouldn't have believed it but I just saw two of them with my own eyes, jumping out of the siege towers. But if I wasn't watching it in freeze frame I wouldn't have seen them, so I could hardly call them stand out orcs haha. BUT I love knowing that they are there. I love Star Wars too so nice touch PJ

Haha! never seen before these Red and Black Orcs. I guess have not been attentive enough to notice them. Indeed one might think that it some sort of reincarnation of Darth Maul in Middle-Earth!!!

The absolute best is [In reply to] Can't Post

The inspector orc in Mordor, from the ROTK EE.

Honorable mention: The Isengarder orc that says: We don't have enough fuel to feed the fires."

These guys are hard, big-boned, a little wide, and short. As most orcs should be!

yes those three are great. [In reply to] Can't Post

I like the noises they make too. Sly Although 'Catapults' is a bit of a classic. Wink theres also the orcses in the tower that find Frodo all tied up in the Shelob-web.
The only orc I dont like is one of the extras in the marching army in the Minas Morgul scene. There is one of them that woodenly twitches his head from left to right like an evil puppet, but it looks false and its a real scene ruiner for me. I remember seeing the close up of he orcextra and it kind of destroyed the moment for me. Mad

actually thinking about it [In reply to] Can't Post

some of the extras ruined a lot of the films atmosphere for me. That close-up of the orc extra did . The cloned children from the Shire/Rohan/Minas Tirith did, did they think we wouldnt notice? there are a couple of extras in particular a woman from Minas Tirith I remember from Rohan. The escaping Rohan kids irritated me. That Gondorian soldier with the hammy speech to Gandalf irritated me. extras always seem to get close-ups and they are sometimes not up to muster. I bet that extra who asks Bilbo where he is running off to will irritate me, cos he seems to have a weird English accent

http://www.tumblr.com/...og?before=1333793755 Is he an Orc or Goblin.?
He does say ¡°The Age of Men is over. The Time of the Orc has come.¡± so he must be an orc.Cool

We are more connected than ever before, more able to spread our ideas and beliefs, our anger and fears. As we exercise the right to advocate our views, and as we animate our supporters, we must all assume responsibility for our words and actions before they enter a vast echo chamber and reach those both serious and delirious, connected and unhinged.

Oh I know who you mean now. [In reply to] Can't Post

This is the other one talking to shiny shirt guy (Shagrat) who says "It's going to the great eye along with everything else." (Gorbag). Even their names are handsome.

'But I should like to know---' Pippin began.
'Mercy!' cried Gandalf. 'If the giving of information is to be the cure of you inquisitiveness, I shall spend the rest of my days in answering you. What more do you want to know?'
'The names of all the stars, and of all living things, and the whole history of Middle-earth and Over-heaven and of the Sundering Seas,' laughed Pippin. 'Of course! What less?'

Yes, here he is [In reply to] Can't Post



It's not so much the way he looks, it's the way he delivers his line. I remember it so vividly from the first time I saw ROTK at the movies. My friend and I were nearly crying with laughter when he said it. We were rather emotional at the time, with everything that had been happening in the story, so it was probably some light relief. I always look forward to this moment. Cool
