Day Twenty Four: Scariest Moment

Okay, now we watched all three LOTR movies on our Clearplay filter, so we didn't see some of the scary or gross stuff. We covered our eyes for some of it too. Like that part in Isenguard with the Uruk-hai... never mind. But I know hands down what the scariest moment, at least for me, was.

In the Fellowship of the Ring, when Bilbo is giving Frodo Sting and his mitril coat, 
and Bilbo sees the ring, and does his Gollum face.
Totally freakiest scariest moment. I can never watch that scene. 
Or pin it. It gives me the creeps just thinking about it. *Shiver*

What do you think was the scariest moment?

Day Twenty Three: Least Favorite Character

Note: I'm going to add a movie countdown thing to the sidebar for the Desolation of Smaug. And I watched Phantom of the Opera on Friday. I am so not watching that movie again. It was way too emotionally intense for moi.

Least fave characters are kinda hard sometimes. Don't know why. Depends on the movie.

But I'm pretty sure mine's Denathor.

Who's you least fave character?

Day Twenty Two: Character You Pity Most

Sorry I haven't been posting a whole lot. I was really busy from Friday to Sunday, and kinda Monday. I was being lazy on Monday. Hey, it's summer! Plus I had to judge AGC  on Sunday so I couldn't post normally.

But anyway...

The character I pity most is probably Faramir. I mean, his dad is a jerk, and his big bro {and probably the only one who'd stand up to Denathor} dies, and he's left all alone. Then of course, there's Eowyn, so he's not off that badly :)

~Who's the character you pity most?~

Day Twenty One: Most Inpiring Moment

Hey again!

Sorry I didn't post after the DOS trailer. D and I were moving Pinterest boards around and adding new ones, then came piano where my teacher said we could learn Concerning Hobbits and Pirates of the Caribbean Theme. She also said we had to watch Phantom of the Opera though. And I hate highly dislike most musicals. Especially High School Musical. Don't even get me started. But anyway, on to the most inspiring moment.

By FAR the most inspiring moment is when Aragorn stands before his army...

and give his speech...

and Gimli and Legolas's friend speeches...

then Aragorn saying "For Frodo", and charging by himself down the hill, with Merry and Pippin following.

Did You See That // Desolation of Smaug Trailer

Did you see that? We sure did! D and I watched it as live as it could be.
 It was actually about a minute late, no joke.
I was practicing piano for a while before it and was playing Sherlock and the Misty Mountains obsessively.

Here is the link to the vid on the Hobbit's facebook page.

Go watch it.

Prepare to be amazed.

I will do my other LOTR/Hobbit post today, but D wants to get to her blog now, so I gotta log off.

Day Twenty: Saddest Character Death

To see a really good post about this sad subject, click here.

I mean, it goes without saying that the death of Fili, Kili and Thorin will totally be the saddest deaths.

I mean, come on! Why did Tolkien kill them? Arg!

And we know that Peter Jackson is totally gonna make the scene horribly sad and probably a it gruesome. 
I mean, Orcs, Goblins, yeah it's gonna be nasty.

What do you think is the saddest character death?

Day Nineteen: Weirdest Screencap

Because I didn't know what "screencap" was, I googled it and now am prepared to post.

A screencap is a photo basically from a movie, during the movie. You see those all the time on pinterest.

Here's the one's I find weird/funny.

Try to ignore the words... but Thorin and Dwalin at the Battle of Azunbilzar {Moria}. Totally awkward...

Though these words are true that is not the point. Aragorn's "oh puhleeze" expression is the point.

And then there's Legolas Greenleaf. 
D says in the LOTR movies he was always making faces like this in the background.

What do you think is the weirdest screencap?

Day Eighteen: Coolest Visual Effect

Okay, you remember that piano recital? I did fine, I don't think I messed up. But remind me to learn a more complicated piece next time. I memorized Sherlock, but my friend Zoey {who's younger then me} played the whole Pirates of the Caribbean theme from memory. She was great. And I made a mental vow to learn and memorize the theme by this time next year. It was so cool to watch her play it. But I'm learning Concerning Hobbits now, well, over the summer. I changed methods my second year in traditional piano, and now I'm learning a whole new method. But I still read notes moderately well. So I'm learning that. I already know/am memorizing Far Over the Misty Mountains Cold, so that's fun. But that one is pretty easy.

Now, on to visual effects.

One of my faves would definitely be Erebor. I mean, the massive-ness of the place is awesome. Nuff said.

The other awesome effect is the Blunt the Knives scene. LOL!

What's your favorite visual effect?

Day Seventeen: Elves {Willow} v.s. Dwarves (D)

Elves {Willow} v.s. Dwarves {D}

Willow: Elves are totally awesome! They're so tall and cool and move so...awesomely!

D: Is it awesome to leave a poor Dwarven nation without shelter after a dragon just attacked them?! I don't think so. Dwarves are strong (unlike Elves) and are majestic. There is only one majestic race, and they do not share their majesty.

Willow: Said the racist! [Note: we are not racists, this is referring to elves v.s. dwarves, nothing more. DO NOT TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY!!]

D: Racist?! Who are you callin' racist?!

Willow: Never mind. But Thorin is stuck up and stubborn. He was so rude to Elrond. And his dwarves broke and BURNED their furniture!

D: Bah! Elrond has bad taste anyway.

Willow: This is gonna be a loooong post. He does not! I love Rivendell! I want to live there!

D: Well duh, you love it. You're rooting for the Elves.

Willow: It doesn't take a nuclear physicist to figure that out. I typed it at the beginning of the post.

D: Whatever! Let's talk more on Thorin's majesticness.

Willow: Whatev. Thorin could take some move-cool lessons from Thrunduil.

D: 'Cause he moves like an alien or bird or something?

Willow: He does not! He moves cool! Didn't you see the behind-the-scenes vid with Lee Pace {Thrunduil} and the movement coach {Terry Notary} ?

D: Who cares about that junk (other than elf-fanciers)!

Willow: Grow up, D.

D: Okay, so I think you guys get the picture. Willow is wrong and I'm right.

Willow: I beg to differ!

D: And besides, can Elves throw plates all around Bag End and not break one? No, I don't think so.

Willow: There's more to life than throwing plates. Like stopping the Necromancer. I noticed that no dwarveses were at the White Council, but two Elves were.

D: Dwarves don't take council from pagan wizards, like elves do. They are above that.

Willow: Gandalf helped lead the Quest, D. Remember? Thorin was out-majesting Gandalf?

D: That's beside the point.

Willow: I think that's enough for now. Stay tuned for tomorrow's post!

D: And make sure to check out my blog here!

Day Sixteen: Favorite Female Character

Hello there, again!
   I don't have a whole lot of time to work on this post today, I have a piano recital tonight. Actually, I don't do recitals, but I volunteered. I will be playing the theme music from the show Sherlock. The music link is here.
   But anyway, the theme today is favorite female character. And that fave is Arwen Undumiel.

I need to use that line sometime!

Princess Dis, daughter of Thrain, son of Thror, mother of Fili and Kili is my second favorite

Then Lady Galadriel of Lorien

Then I suppose Eowyn of Rohan

Who are your favorite female characters?

Day Fifteen: Favorite Armor

I'm short on time, so here's my favorite armor!

Elrond's armor is so awesome!

Thorin's armor/mail/shirt/thing is also pretty cool. Except his arm things look like rubber.

Theodin's armor is awesome too!

Day Fourteen: Favorite Outfit

I'm pleased to type that this one wasn't very hard for me, as I already know my favorite outfit.

I love this dress so much! 

You can actually get one one Amazon for under $100.

Note: The girl second from the left is Peter Jackson's daughter, 
who was the gasping Hobbit child at Bilbo's Party in the Fellowship of the Ring.

You can get this custom made for you from Amazon.

This one's cute too:)

[Just for fun!]


Tomorrow's the favorite armor day, so that's why there's no armor here.
