But why do you like her? There are also other interesting characters in LotR..I like Gollum myself.
And hello Alienfx007, I reckonses that Gollum will be just fine, my preciousssssss
Hi AlienFX007, & welcome! I kinda liked the way he said, " Gollum... in the movie. I think he'll be alright - although I must say that he did look like a cross between Yoda & ET.
Gollum was a little more wrinkled than either Yoda or ET though, if my eyes remember rightly, with only one viewing.
I just hope they make Shelob big or long legged enough for Sam to stand up right with his sword raised under her, before she lifts her body up to smack him down with it.
stick her in a big black shiny spandex body suit and voila!
Seriously, though, I agree that Shelob is a great character. One of my faves in TTT, along with Eowyn (of course). She has so much personality! The devil gets all the best tunes, I guess.
And Gollum will be just great! His voice issss ok, and the rest too. His eyes were fantastic!
'sides, you don't need to talk to have personality. My cat has entirely too much.
in the book, it says that she's a far older demon than sauron, so where did she come from? maybe she's in the same family as the Balrog?
a rare combination, that.
i wonder whatever happened to her after she crawled back to her cave. Tolkien was rather vague about that.
Oh! Just remembered! Plastic said:
And she probably will be in it, what with the light being the only gift of Galadriel to surface.
Hmm. I thought I saw Boromir, Merry & Pippin wearing the brooches given by Galadriel, although the movie only showed her giving the light to Frodo. I remember seeing the brooches on Boromir during his death scene, and also on Merry & Pippin. Can't remember if Frodo or Sam wore them, have to watch the movie again for that.
so non-tolkien readers would be like
why are they all wearing the same cloack and brooch and where the hell did they get'em from?
'Elrond's Emporium: Eastern Eriador's Purveyor of Phine Products,
Outfitters of Elven Equipment, Extremely Essential to the Exceptional Expedition
I noticed the cloaks too. I think they should have left the gift giving in. The cloaks need an explanation.
I believe there will be a shelob in the movie. When I was watching "The Making of..." I noticed a model of a leggy, bulbous bodied spider.
Leggy, bulbous bodied...hmm..sounds like her alright. Although she was a lot fatter before she left home..
ungoliant, you must be anxious to see you daughter again after all these years.
Unfortunately Elrond didn't make any sales that day, Grondie, since they weren't wearing the cloaks & brooches in Moria. So can we also assume that Sam got his box of earth from Galadriel then?
The Gift Giving was important and should not have been left out, of course maybe Arwen passed through Lothlorien on her way south and picked up Sam's Box, the hobbit's brooches, Boromir's belt, Gimli's lock, Legolas' bow, and Anduril's sheath.
If we don't scour the shire, Sam doesn't need the box and Galadriel's lock of hair now appears moot. As Legolas would have required too much practice to become proficient with the new bow, so it isn't necessary in the movie. And Pippin can loose something else or Aragorn can just see his footprints.
I can't remember whether Boromir had the belt when he took his last white-water trip, but Faramir needs to see it so that Frodo can explain its source when they meet at Sam's tailgate party, preceding the TT's Battle of the Oliphant.
And Arwen can bring, along with the sword, the sheath from Galadriel, Complete with a do-it-yourself Sword Naming Kit, which includes many Fine Gems for applying your Chosen Name to your Sword's Sheath. Age eight and above.
i wonder how they're going to incorporate that into the story? maybe faramir will just see the brooch?
Boromir's horn wasn't broken either... I think the broach will be enough. The broaches were very well done, don't you think?
I personally can't wait to see Faramir. Boromir was so excellently portrayed and (I assume again...) directed. Faramir is one of my fav. characters in the book.
do you think there's any illegal way of getting my hands on a copy TTT before it's released? i WANT TO SEE IT NOW!
Haven't read much of the above posts, sorry people, but I really don't have much time.
Shelob will be freakin' cool, if she isn't, PJ is going to have some stinks in his face. GIRL POWER!!!
Who will be Shelob's voice again? Sorry if it's been said before, too lazy to scroll down...
He could have... :paranoid
I can't wait to see shelob in TTT. She is my absolute favourite, i have no idea why. I hope PJ doesn't disappoint... she's so ****ing cool!!!
Shelob isn't going to be in TTT...Peter Jackson is moving her to ROTK...oh i hate Peter Jackson!
So then, is TTT going to end with our wee heroes ready to enter the Morgal Vale and with the rest of our heroes victorious over Saruman and his minions, and now heading-off on their separate ways? Or does that latter bit get transferred to the ROTK?
Shelob isn't going to be in TTT...Peter Jackson is moving her to ROTK...
What? not cool......stupid PJ
And as for moving things around.... No one seemed to mind when Boromir dies at the end of the FOTR film. In the books, he doesn't die until the first chapter of TTT.
