lord i love this movie


Ladies and gentlemen, some of the 100000 reasons why I will love the Lord of the Rings movies and the cast till the end of times.

  • <p> <b>Tolkien:</b> By the end of the Third Age, Sauron's physical power is so diminished that his presence is confined to the tower of Barad-Dur. However, he is still immensely powerful in his ability to watch and predict the movements of his enemies, and his understanding extends so far that he could metaphorically be referred to as a Great Eye, constantly watching and planning his next move. And because his gaze is so piercing, it is sometimes likened to fire.<p/><b>Peter Jackson:</b> Okay but...hear me out...what if Sauron was literally....a Great Eye.<p/><b>Tolkien:</b> What.<p/><b>Peter Jackson:</b> What if he was literally a giant eyeball on the top of Barad-Dur.<p/><b>Tolkien:</b> That's not quite what I inten-<p/><b>Peter Jackson:</b> Made of FIRE. A LITERAL GIANT FIERY EYEBALL.<p/></p>

So don’t be alarmed if he takes you by the arm
I won’t let him win, but I’m a sucker for his charm
Trouble is a friend
Yeah trouble is a friend of mine, oh oh

This gay mega block is taking over my life

“i wish i had done everything on earth with you.” 

My favorite book Legolas moment - hands down - is his reaction to the Balrog.  You may remember his steely-eyed gaze and silent awe/slight fear from the movies.  Legolas is often the silent staring type in the movies.  That’s his Appeal™.

However, book Legolas reacts a lil bit differently…

“Legolas turned and set an arrow to the string, though it was a long shot for his small bow. He drew, but his hand fell, and the arrow slipped to the ground. He gave a cry of dismay and fear. 

Then with a rush it leaped across the fissure. The flames roared up to greet it, and wreathed about it; and a black smoke swirled in the air. Its streaming mane kindled, and blazed behind it. In its right hand was a blade like a stabbing tongue of fire; in its left it held a whip of many thongs.‘Ai! ai! ’ wailed Legolas. 'A Balrog! A Balrog is come!'”

Yeah that’s right, he drops his arrow and starts screaming.  Sweet gentle Legolas is easily frightened by demons from the pit, okay?

(Sidenote: Gimli also screams and drops his axe so at least Legolas isn’t alone)

Favourite things about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 - WITH SPOILERS (kinda) and in no particular order

- Chris Pratt’s ACTING
- the moment the villain’s plot is unveiled - HOLY SHIT
- Rocket humming along to “Southern Nights”
- Yondu - just EVERYTHING about him, EVERY. LITTLE. THING.
- Mantis (hilarious, cute, adorable = INSTANT NEW FAVOURITE CHARACTER)
- relationship between Rocket and Yondu (some of the best character relationship development I’ve seen in like… ever, Idk)
- Rocket, Yondu and the bloodiest yet most effective bonding scene EVER (I was genuinely moved in spite of the horrendous body count, and I feel kinda bad but IT WAS HEART-WARMING)
- relationship between Mantis and Drax
- use of Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain” in the final battle (EPIC, HOLY SHIT)
- just perfectly written characters everywhere
- Kraglin (Sean Gunn is fucking amazing tbh)
- the whole Taserface running gag
- Star-Lord’s little smile for Gamora at the end *SWOON*
- the whole ending because it was perfect (I cried but it was still perfect)
- Quill playing catch with his dad (I also cried)
- “Promise not to hurt Groot and I’ll tell you…”
- Pissed-off Nebula
- Nebula character development
- oh hey we casually introduced the best MCU villain yet (Loki doesn’t count as a villain in my eyes…)
- Star-Lord in general (always)
- Rocket in general (also always)
