Was Aragorn prideful here? [In reply to] Can't Post

Yes, and I have to say that, quelle sacrilege, I prefer Movie Aragorn for just that reason. It's one thing to be unsure, but courageous and willing, and yet another to be so prideful sounding as is actually book Aragorn and certainly Robert Stephens' portrayal. To me, if he were all that sure of himself and prideful he would have been in the forefront long ago--it would have been his nature. I think Movie Aragorn's hesitancy gels more closely with the other facts known about him.

I would have been happy to see the sons of Elrond included in this adaptation, but really, I think the inclusion of the other Dunadan rangers was more than could be expected for a radio adaptation. Their inclusion did give the necessry added dimension and depth to the story, even though we didn't have much backstory on them.

I think that just the name Paths of the Dead would be enough to add a sense of dread and danger to this subplot.

Um, no thanks--I don't eat bunnies either. But it was neat that you included a receipe for the hobbit meal!
