I can't say I'm looking forward to Terminator 5 and don't have any interest in the movies after Judgment Day but Tatiana Maslany as Sarah Connor is brilliant casting if they decide to go that route. Like, really brilliant. Also yes I kinda sorta used this status as an excuse to post a pic of her.

"I have choked on these lies my entire career, but here and now THE LIES STOP!!".. Ed fucking Harris is one of the most underrated and overall bad-ass mother fuckers to take on acting in Hollywood. We need more Ed Harris!

The Hobbit Countdown - 17 Days - Tauriel

Played by: Evangeline Lilly



Who is She?

Tauriel is an Elvish WARRIOR, yes a warrior who is also the right hand woman of Thranduil (The King of Mirkwood), all while being the leader of the Elven Guards. Not much is known about the character since she is completely made up for the movie but it was confirmed that her parents were slain by orcs when she was young, which will give her an aggressive and almost reckless nature. Evy Lilly actually summed her up in an interview as being "a killing machine", which is all the more reason to be excited about her. Hardcore Tolkien fans have been vocal about this change in the sense that A. she's a made up character and B. she's breaking the "blueprint" of the Elvish race in her personality makeup. To those people I say BACK THE FUCK UP AND WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE THE FINISHED PRODUCT. The female presence in The Hobbit is mostly nonexistent and that's a stark contrast to the Lord of the Rings trilogy which had powerful and revolutionary female characters. Aside from Galadriel, Arwen and Eowyn we know that the high power Valar contain a female, Galadriel is perhaps the most powerful of resistance of the ring and royalty in Middle-Earth and Bilbo constantly states that his internal and external strength comes from his mother. Because of this it was essential to add another woman into the mix for The Hobbit's trilogy and since they're expanding on the story and the appendices with a heavy Elvish presence they were able to include her as a brutally kick-ass warrior. Don't like it? I say fuck off.

What we can expect in The Desolation of Smaug

Again, this is all brand new so all I have to go on is what I've seen in the trailers and the sneak peek of the movie, and that's a heavy dosage of Tauriel action. It's been hinted that Legolas is in a sort of "one-sided" crush on her in the sense that Tauriel either isn't feeling him or is forbidden to do so, but either way their relationship will be focused. In fact, it's been mentioned by some that (minor spoiler) she actually winds up having a romantic relationship with Kili the dwarf. This was hinted at in the Extended Edition when Kili is in Rivendell checking out the female elves that walk past him during the dinner sequence. We also know that she's with Legolas when they "capture" the dwarves and she will most likely have an expanded role in the third film as well, barring she actually survives.

Basically we can count on two things, 1. She'll kick a heavy amount of orc ass and 2. She'll look great doing it. Win-Win!

I just wanted to say that I honestly and truthfully did not mean to offend anyone with my recent post on here about Megan Fox and I'm sorry that I brought it up in the way that I did. I could've stated my feelings about the scenario in a much more respectful manner and I came across as rude and dickish to her in the way I chose to word it. I have no idea what she's going through and I can't imagine the kind of pressure she has in the constant limelight of the Hollywood machine so my apologies to everyone who was offended and was bothered by it. I will think before I post things along that line next time, cheers guys.

I guess I'm guilty as well, and I also apologize. but it does perplex me to see so many women who are in the public's eye go to such extreme measures to look beautiful when all they become is almost a parody of the beauty they already possessed. I can't imagine the pressure either but what they are doing isn't the way to go

These images bring up an interesting question: why is Sting the only Elvish sword we see glowing blue in the presence of Orcs and Goblins, especially if it's just an "Elvish letter opener" like Balin quips?

JohnLocke2342 created a LIST: 11 months ago

The 10 Best Performances in The Lord of the Rings

1. Ian McKellen as Gandalf - - The lone Oscar nomination of the acting ensemble in this trilogy (what a shame), McKellen turned in such an iconic role that it's impossible to see him without seeing Gandalf anymore. Every single mannerism, expression and even his body language is so seamlessly blended with that of such a magical character that you almost question if he's acting or if he's just that good. He just has that twinkle in his eye that is inescapable when it comes to close-ups.
2. Viggo Mortensen as Aragorn - - Arguably the best actor in this talented ensemble, Mortensen was born to play this role and completely immersed himself as the character. His arc from a ranger desperately trying to escape his destiny to a man who owns up and fulfils the title is one of the best journeys in the series. I go to bed every night thanking God that he was recast at the last minute over Stuart Townsend.
3. Andy Serkis as Gollum - - The pioneer of motion-capture, Serkis proved that this technology is so much more than a man in a costume interacting with actors. He IS an actor and gave one of the very best performances over the past 20 years as Gollum. The ability to create two completely different characters and balance them against one another was outstanding. Plus getting us as an audience to sympathize with that character was a feat all on its own.
4. Sean Astin as Samwise Gamgee - - While Frodo is the heart and soul of the story it's Samwise the Brave who's with him every single step of the way. The emotion he put forth in all three movies was something really touching and his hold on the audience as a fan favorite completely reflects that.
5. Christopher Lee as Saruman - -Here's another experienced legend that is well-versed in the world of Tolkien and it shows in his amazing performance as The White Wizard. He's so manipulative and cunning in certain scenes but you always get the sense that he's never as fully entranced in wrongdoing as the other villains of the trilogy are... like his heart isn't totally in it for the sake of just being evil.
6. Cate Blanchett as Galadriel - - Blanchett is arguably the best actress on the planet right now and her legendary performances span into so many different genres that it's almost unbelievable. Here she commands the movie whenever she's on screen and her ethereal look matches up perfectly with her wonderfully warm ability to project an immortal being. Oh, and her opening narration can not be overlooked.
7. Ian Holm as Bilbo Baggins - - No stranger to Tolkien's work Holm, slipped so seamlessly into the world of Middle-Earth and perfectly captured the bombacious spirit and nervous conditioning of Bilbo Baggins. He's absolutely brilliant in his small screen time and set the blueprint for Martin Freeman's performance in The Hobbit trilogy.
8. Liv Tyler as Arwen - - Tyler's role in the trilogy is often understated but you can't look past her angelic, warm and internally conflicted performance in the trilogy. She goes through a varied amount of emotional mindstates throughout all 3 stories and when she does finally get to Aragorn at the end of The Return of the King there isn't a single person who isn't bursting with eternal happiness.
9. Sean Bean as Boromir - - Another wonderful actor who brings it in just about every role he tackles, Sean Bean was literally the perfect choice for the troubled character of Boromir. I remember reading that he was first cast back in 1999 and flipping out because of how perfect the unison between his previous performances and the Son of Gondor were. With somewhat limited screen time and only one movie to work through a massive character arc Bean perfectly brings this man to life while simultaneously elevating the performances of those around him.
10. John Noble as Denethor - - Sauron is the faceless enemy of the franchise, Saruman is the corrupted one and the biddings of orcs and uruk-hai bring out an evil nature... but it's Denethor the twisted father who's all the more easy to hate. This is thanks in large part to a performance along the lines of Marcia Gay Harden in The Mist where you cringe with anger everytime their character pops up on screen. Noble provided a much needed ounce of slimy, villainous hatred to the movie at a time where each character journey was colliding into one sole mission again.
11. Discalimer* As one of the very few movies that I consider to be perfectly casted in just about every role it was hard to narrow it down to only 10, but these are the 10 Earth-Shattering performances that I thought elevated the films even further.

I think leaving John Noble in was a good call. In a lot of ways he had the toughest role given how unlikable his character is.

Bernard Hill as Theoden needs his own category just for the sheer epic-ness of his goatee!!!

Seriously, the list is sound. I could see you stressing over it too :-)

Hey MFC I'm planning on doing my December Lord of the Rings marathon right before The Desolation of Smaug this year to get ready for the new movie's release. I watch them sporadically throughout the year but the Holidays always remind me of these movies and the nostalgia of sitting in the theater during their first theatrical run. My plan as it stands would be to watch The Fellowship of the Ring two Sundays from now on December 8th, The Two Towers on December 9th, The Return of the King on December 10th and An Unexpected Journey on December 11th; all before The Desolation of Smaug on Thursday December 12th at midnight. I thought I'd just throw it out there in case anyone was interested and wanted to marathon along with me on the site.. I think it'd be fun as fuck to sort of watch "simultaneously" with a bunch of you guys.

The Hobbit Countdown - 18 Days - Legolas

Played by: Orlando Bloom




Who is He?

How dare you not know the answer to this question but for those of you living under a rock in the past 10 years, Legolas is the strikingly beautiful BAMF Elvish Prince of Mirkwood. He's armed with absolutely deadly precision with a bow, incredible eye sight and flowing golden locks that could make any woman in the audience both jealous and forever in love with him. Perhaps the single most kick-ass character in the original trilogy when it comes to action scenes and the disposing of orcs and uruk-hai, Legolas Greenleaf is back to slay some more evil in The Desolation of Smaug.

What we can expect in The Desolation of Smaug

Legolas's role in The Hobbit is completely new for the movie and what once started off as just a cameo with less than 2 minutes of screen time has now ballooned into a feature role in the new trilogy. Tolkien fanatics will again be divided on this inclusion (what else is new) as well as a possible romantic subplot between he and his father's right hand woman Tauriel. Jackson has repeatedly stated that they will not be in a romantic relationship but the trailer clearly showcases that he's sporting some serious feelings for Tauriel out in The Woodland Realm.

So basically we can expect more of.. Legolas. More of the absolutely mind-boggingly awesome action sequences, more of the incredibly obvious dialogue and more of the prettiest man in Middle-Earth. Out of all of the things in The Desolation of Smaug this is one of the inclusions that I'm definitely most looking forward to as he was one of my favorite characters in the LOTR trilogy and his Unexpected Comeback (c what I did thur?) has nostalgic awesomeness written all over it.

The Hobbit Countdown - 19 Days - Thranduil

Played by: Lee Pace



Who is He?

The Elvenking of The Woodland Realm and Northern Mirkwood, Thranduil is just as fabulously beautiful as his son Legolas. You can tell he got his delicate features from his father because this mother fucker could rock a crown like nobody else can. He has a stark disliking for the dwarves and is completely distrusting of Thorin and his Company when they come in contact (and even though this is reference a lot in both The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit not ALL ELVES hate dwarves this way). He's completely in control, stubborn and pristine royalty who rules with a somewhat iron (diamond clad) fist.

What we can expect in The Desolation of Smaug

Well we can definitely expect an increased presence from the elves and a boost in Thranduil sequences since they play up his rivalry with Thorin as well as his relationship with his son Legolas. The latter is of course not featured in the book but makes an appearance in the movie, and because of that we should see some hints at their developed and complicated relationship. He has a pretty big role in The Battle of the Five Armies as well but since I feel like I've been getting a bit too "revealing" in these blogs with details about the book I won't say anymore.

Also due to Lee Pace's immense popularity and the "fabulous" nature of this character in all of the posters/trailers/TV spots expect a massive tumblr following and gifs like this to pop up periodically:

Wow! Pulled this one out of the movie library back around Wednesday and started re-watching. I agree, this is one heck of a movie and Costner does a wonderful job as Jim Garrison (and there are other great performances as well, ie. Pesci, Sutherland, Candy, etc.). This movie stirred the American soul when it came out way back in 1991 and ruffled some "older" feathers.

A superb piece of work.
