^ First time I've ever heard someone get insulted from being considered a "noob". :)
Serious, it's all relative dude, you're new to these boards- so, yeah, you are a noob. :D Jesus man, it's just a desciption- it's like calling someone "tall".
As for the sword thing...that's cool it seems...
who would you all have cast to play Glorfindel if he had been in the movie? Would need someone big (he was a Noldorian Elf right? About 7' ish.) who also looked sort of royal and had an aire of both authority, power but also experiance about him.
There's also a group of Dunedain Rangers that come down with the brothers and fight under Aragorns command. We pry won't see them cause it would be too confusing with Faramir's rangers already present.
Sorry for the late reply all, but I found this sword that bares at least a passing resemblence to Haldir's sword.
In my personal opinion, itself would have made a fine elven weapon :)
There is a 5 year gap between ESB and ROTJ- read "Shadows of the Empire." somewhere in there it says that Luke returns to Tatoonie (specifically Kenobi's place) and builds himself his new lightsaber which is traditionally the last test for a Jedi apprentice since it is so hard to make them :)
Hey, Elvenarcher....there's a better pic of what they face in the beginning of the trailer when the Nazgul dive in on Minas Tirith-- couple of good sized groups there :)
And also, then Gandalf goes up the stairs to the defenses of Minas Tirith theres like a frame or two where there's Orcs and...
Just realized upon my re-reading of TTT that among the items that Legolas, Aragorn and Gimli put in the boat with Boromis was his helm.
I find that sort of wierd as it had not been mentioned at all up until this point.
So...did Aragorn ALSO have a helm on the journey?
I too spotted some elves in the trailer.
Want my take? OK, here it is. In TTT, Galadriel convinces Elrond to stay and fight in the War- a last testament the Elves will make to Middle Earth before (nearly) all go over the sea. At the battle of Helm's Deep, we see the defenders of Lorien under...
I also agree- Sam was about as loyal a friend as they come.
Although to be perfectly honest with you, when I was first reading the books, I was a little worried that Sam had sort of a "blind-faith" in Frodo almost to a fault.
Thankfully it's his friendship that KEEPS it from becoming his end.
In the book, Elrond is- to say the least- hesitant in letting Pippen travel with the fellowship- citing that they were too young and niave to make the journey to Mordor.
Although it is not said aloud by Elrond, one of the others (Gandalf, Aragorn- i forget which) mentioned Gorfindel as a...
Would be interesting....Noldorian elves, the fall of Numenor, the establishment of Arnor and Gondor, the Last Aliiance...
Definately WOULD have been a good read-- too bad it's impossible to know for sure :(
Personally...because they were so close to Aragorn (first foster-fathers, then foster-brothers to him) I think they would have stayed until he died in IIII120 (that's the right year right?) Legolas also did this (i think).
If not that, then I bet they stayed with their sister and went with...
