Guess the Phrase Game! Can't Post

I haven't done any of these for a while, and since I'm in such a good mood this afternoon, I thought I should make some more.

The rules:

The aim of the game is to guess the character, location/place, or part of a well known sentence/poem, from the picture riddles. Some of them are (very) easy - you just have to literally take the pictures as the actual words (see example below). Some of the riddles require thinking outside of the box, or having an imagination (adding “ing” onto the end of words, for instance). Likewise, the riddles do not contain (common) words like: the, of, and, a, to, are ... and so on, so bare this in my mind.

I have tried to make them so that if you can guess at least half of the pictures, you should be able to deduct the rest. You may need your book handy for the more difficult ones.

Here is an example (in case all of the above has just gone “whoosh” over your head):



Answer below

.
.
Reading this literally, one would get | BARRELS | OUT | (james) BOND |. After a bit of thinking, you will eventually get “Barrels Out of Bond”, which, as we all know, is a chapter in The Hobbit.

Understood? Good! I’ll start posting some of the riddles below. They’ll be separated into several posts, just to keep within TORn guidelines.

Enjoy! And remember to use your imagination! I had to to make them! Wink

Sorry, should have said. [In reply to] Can't Post

All Tolkein related - they are a mixture from The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion.

4) Wormtongue

5) This one seriously had me stumped for some reason Unimpressed I couldn't figure out "core". Melkor.

Well that was a lot of fun! Do it again sometime!

There's a sad sort of clanging from the clock in the hall and the bells in the steeple, too.

Edited because I jokingly put "is that from Star Trek?" in the title, which turns out to be a real hint, little did I know!

I can't believe everyone has got them so easily! [In reply to] Can't Post

Definitely need to make them harder.

As for 1 (Belladonna), it's a doner kebab (awful fast food). I couldn't think of any other donna.
