This is actually more difficult than I thought! If it had to be a single line, just one, it would be when Galadriel says to Frodo:
“Even the smallest person can change the course of the future.”
I just think it epitomises the moral of The Lord of the Rings; no matter if you’re a lord or lady, man or dwarf, hobbit, ent or elf, you’re just as significant as the next living inhabitant on the earth (or rather, Arda).
It kind of reminds me of what Gandalf said:
“My heart tells me that Gollum has some part to play, for good or ill, before this is over.”
I could write an entire essay about that one line and it’s significance but I’ll spare you
Oh yes! I think he’d enjoy it immensely! I mean of course there would have been a hundred and one things that he’d have wanted Jackson to include but I think he would have been proud of them. I’d love to know what he would think of them as he didn’t believe lord of the rings could possibly be made into a film to begin with! But Peter Jackson is an incredible director and did the best possible job on all three films and not to forget the stunning music from Howard Shore, all the awesome people of the production design, the actors etc etc: So yes, I think he would have loved them.
I’m going to have to go for Aragorn and Arwen; their love is boundless, unfeigned and absolute. I love the sentiment in giving up eternal life for a mortal’s fate to be with the one you love, just for that one person to spend till your dying days as Luthien did for Beren. I have to pick them, there was no question about it, I love them.
I know it’ll probably be so obvious but Sauron! I mean he is The Lord of the Rings! He would have been the most terrifying Dark Lord since Morgoth (Melkor) and was powerful and cunning enough to blind the elves to his hidden desire in the form of Annatar. I think I’d pick him over Saruman any day because, although Sauron would have been ensnared by Melkor, he was a puppet (as well as many others including the nazgul) and didn’t know his mind. I also love the concept of the eye of sauron! I mean he’s a truly terrifying, hardcore evil character so of course I’m picking him.
An adventure with? This is an interesting one! And a hard one at that! Well no one can go anywhere without their Sam so of course he’d come; I value his friendship, courage and loyalty which far surpasses any measurable count of weaponry skill etc. Aragorn would have to come, too. Definitely someone who has experience of long travel and is as intelligent and wise as he is; I’d follow him anywhere, he’s one of those characters who’d you’d sincerely trust and have no doubt in (plus he could retell stories of old and teach us something of interest). This is hard…I’m going to have to choose Bilbo! Because he’s been in many adventures before and I’d actually love to be apart of them! I’d love to be included in A Hobbit’s Tale, imagine what that little hobbit would write about me! I’d love that plus he’d be on my side when I say I want a warm supper and a nice wee sleep haha
Yes: Sam, Aragorn, Bilbo and I; we’d make one hell of a badass team
To be completely honest I’m not truly disappointed with anything in particular or feel contempt against anything that Tolkien created or any of Jackson’s adaptations.
However, obviously a fan has misgivings about things being left out in the films that were in the books but I accept that everything couldn’t have been included; even so the movies were beautifully executed, I love how we got to see the story of Aragorn and Arwen and the likes.
If I had to complain about something, I’d say I was annoyed with the fact that in Return of the King (movie) Frodo sent Sam away and in turn Sam actually obeyed and left him! I don’t think he ever would have (well apart from when he thinks Frodo is dead-although he does go back to claim him reasoning that the elves etc would understand his master was more important than destroying the ring…anyway not the question!) Maybe it was to make it more dramatic for viewers, I don’t know.
