Cate looks simply stunning [In reply to] Can't Post

Whatever one may feel about the WC scene, she makes a wonderful Galadriel.

I'm guessing that Cate Blanchett needed the least amount of de-aging, [In reply to] Can't Post

and she looked much the same, so she got my vote. But they did a great job on Hugo Weaving-- in the vlogs you could tell that ten years had passed, but in AUJ, Elrond looked identical to the way he looked in LotR, to my eye anyway.

I voted for him, too [In reply to] Can't Post

Perfect that the elves managed to be made to look younger!

Hugo Weaving [In reply to] Can't Post

Could not notice any aging at all, actually. Brilliant make-up, or Weaving has just simply aged very well.

I agree [In reply to] Can't Post

and I think that the more dynamic costume that Elrond has in AUJ helps with this also. Cate Blanchett looks different, but not older- I read somewhere that they used very blue contact lenses for her, which they did not use before.

Cate Blanchett [In reply to] Can't Post

looks more beautiful if that's at all possible. Second, I would say Hugo Weaving; he does not look a day older. I want to be an elf too!

Elijah Wood still has that baby face. [In reply to] Can't Post

He doesn't look much older at all. Christopher Lee on the other hand has obviously aged.

I don't know what exacly they've done to Hugo Weaving [In reply to] Can't Post

but they certainly did something. He certainly does not look ten years older but younger, rather.
While I don't think the years necessarily hurt his looks he does look older nowadays - taking the Cloud Atlas Premier pictures as a reference. Elrond, on the other hand, looks younger than in Lord of the Rings.

Who looks best [In reply to] Can't Post

I actually pick Cate Blanchett, Hugo Weaving and Christopher Lee in the the choices above but thinking about it I feel Christopher Lee deserves a special mention here. The guy is 90 years old and turning up 91 may the 27th! That's almost unbelievable. He plays Saruman as well as 10 years ago and he is still in a very decent shape as an actor. I have to raise my hat to Christopher Lee!

I voted for... [In reply to] Can't Post

Cate, Hugo, Elijah and Orlando. Holm, McKellen and Christopher Lee all looked A LOT older, to me.

Cate did still look good, but I could tell that at least ten years had passed. Same with Hugo.

Elijah and Orlando looked older but still just as good.

Cate as Galadriel- good lord, she was beautiful! [In reply to] Can't Post

I remember whrn FOTR first came out, some viewers complained that Cate didn't look "gorgeous enough". I thought she looked just like the book said, sad with a "voice deeper than a woman's wont" and long blonde hair and a white dress. The only thing that creeped me out by her was "one who has seen the EYE!" but I liked her much better on the EE with the gift giving- her interaction with Gimli was wonderful and I wish it were in the regulare version!
Anyhow, anyone who said she wasn't "gorgeous enough" should be eating their words after watching The Hobbit. She was goddess like, especially with that glow they had about her. Great lighting! I would have thought she were younger, not older, which is right chronologically!
PS- I didn't vote him, but Hugo Weaving looked younger and happier, too. Just like he should have, before the ring was discovered and the elves decided to leave Middle Earth in sorrowUnsure
