Swtiching gears again... back to LOTR!

The Hobbit came out on dvd, and I've watched it three times in the two weeks that I've had it.  In between, I've squeezed in another marathon of Lord of the Rings.  Best movie(s) ever made!  So, I have three more sketches from that series: the first from Fellowship of the Ring, when the orcs in Moria bring out their formidable ally to fight the Fellowship for them. 

Boromir says, calmly and with distinct irony: 
"They have a cave troll!"

          This troll doesn't seem to like Frodo!  Imagine that .......

In Return of the King, there is much festive partying, to celebrate their victories.  Legolas and Gimli bond even further with a drinking game!   Later, when nearly all are bedded down for the night, Aragorn takes a walk, and finds Legolas staring out into the evening sky.  They begin a conversation.

Legolas: "The stars are veiled.  Something stirs in the east -- a sleepless malice.  The eye of the Enemy is moving."

(There are stars quite visible in the night sky. Go to bed, Legolas. You're drunk and paranoid.)

At the coronation of King Elessar, he earnestly addresses those attending:

"This day does not belong to one man, but to all.  Let us together rebuild this world, that we may share in the days of peace."

Long live King Elessar!
