Thread: Beautiful Men - The Drool Thread
       >>
He makes a great elf, and he's pretty as all-get-out, but has anyone else noticed he CANNOT dress half the time? He must be color- and pattern-blind! There are some candid photos that keep turning up on Ebay (not sure where they were taken) where he's wearing a weird dark blue jacket, a shiny (shiny!) red and white striped shirt and a paisley tie. It's a train wreck of an outfit. And I've seen him in polka dots, in orange, in oil-slick grey... Someone help him!
And he looks so young! We're the same age, and I feel like a dirty old lady for thinking he's... decorative (in case there are kiddies reading ). The boy barely looks legal!
Sure does make a good-looking elf, though.
I dunno who Gabrial Byrne is. What's he been in?
Very touching character and final scene...
Sean Bean did make me like Boromir for the first time (since reading ROTK, when you find out what kind of pressure he's been under). I loved how he was with the hobbits, though I did miss his "I told you so"'s in the movie.
Orlando Bloom does indeed make a great elf. He is very pretty...er... handsome. I even liked Elrond, thought he was very sexy (especially in the war scenes), but when I saw the elves in Lothlorien, I thought I was back visiting San Francisco... kinda creepy to find that many pretty men in one place. (no offense to pretty men). Makes a poor California desert rat feel quite... plain.
But I found the hobbits the most apealing. I couldn't look at Frodo without (as someone mentioned in another thread) wanting to adopt him as a son, but Merry and Pippin were quite.. apealing. NOt sexy, but they did get to me...
And Aragorn. Wow. Never even was attracted to him until Viggo got a hold of him. Wow... I give him four point five drool buckets out of five. PP.5
Was that the one with Rutger Hauer turning into a bird (or was it a dog?)
Ladyhawke... he turned into a wolf, Michel Pfifer turned into the Hawk and Matthew Broderick played the theif. That was a good one. I've got that on DVD. That was a good low budget fantasy film (a lesson for others?) If you have a good story, you can go far IMO...
So which one was Hawk the Slayer then?
It's nice but willow will always be one of my favorites
Legend was really visually beautiful, but the story and the plot just couldn't hold it all together.
My fantasy video/dvd Library has:
Hercules (season 3,4,5)
Xena (only the really good eps, mostly with Autolycus - I'm a Gabby fan)
Records of Lodoss War
Chronicles of the Heroic Knight
Dune (both incarnations)
I can't think of anymore right now...

70s eh, only saw the last three years of that decade, explains why I don't know it. And I'd forgotten Krull, haven't seen it since '86, so it's probably not as good as I remember...
Ooh! ooh! I almost forgot 4 buckets of drool :P :P :P :P for bruce willis for his role in north!! he makes a reall cool bunny
Ok, here are my favorite male actors:
Orlando Bloom just made the list nearly at the top, but I only want him as Legolas.
Ron Livingston (Captain Nixon in Band of Brothers)
Viggo! Been a fan since he played Lucifer in the Prophecy - excellent
Russell Crowe as Maximus, sigh.
Rugter Hauer as Etienne de Navarre in Ladyhawke (such a shame that his career took some downturns.)
Kyle Macglachan (sp?) in Dune - MEOW!
Tom Conti (funny dark haired English/Irish actor whose hair just makes me flip)
Cary Elwes (from Princess Bride and Lady Jane)
Mel Gibson (he's starting to look his age a bit, but damn, in his youth - mad max, Gallipoli, etc. he was out of this world)
Oh, Elijah Wood - Those eyes, though I have to admit, I feel like a bit of a pedifile. Frodo isn't much of a sexy character, but he tugs at my heart strings.
Hugh Jackman - WOW
and the list goes on.
And Bruce willis, of course!

And I too love Beastmaster, great cult classic. (there was a short lived t.v. series I believe) The same kinda thing for "Army of Darkness" (which I also have) and Krull... just cult classics that I enjoy watching when there is nothing "new" to watch.
Oh... and how about the guy who played Rochfert in Three Musketeers (the bad guy/ Disney movie), great voice, and Alan Rickman as the Prince of Thieves nemesis (I hated the movie except for him..).
Speaking of Robin Hood... what about the Eryol Flynn classic? Anyone like those classic leading men. Charelton Heston always made me kinda tingly.
I like Bruce too... something about bald men drives me crazy
...the Beastmaster .... Doesn't it have a spinoff now?
Fantasy and reality shouldn't be mixed, you are either in one place or the other and should loose magic when here and technology when there. Of course there have been many exceptions to my rule, and after all, what do I know, and who am I to be making any rules?.
look at warhammer 40K those characters look awesome! and they have tech and fantasy!
did anyone read the books that were a sequel to Willow? Shadow Something...I think...
Another thing that Bruce Willis did was take an exceptional movie and make it even better - he did wonders for Die Hard, and the deal with that movie is that it was one of the first action movies that didn't have a big burly arnold s. type as the hero. Here was an average guy who uses mostly his brains to outwit the terrorists. I like that. And he's intelligent, so I like that aspect of his character, too. Then there's his whisper voice (when he whispers, sigh.). And he was so touching in 6th Sense.
Oh, and I need to amend my list some
Val Kilmer in the Saint
Heath Ledger - for a night of real disco partying
Sean Connery - as 007, of course
Pierce Brosnan as Thomas Crown
Micheal Wallace (I think that's his name - he was Rochefort in 3 Musk'eers, but he's a fairly skinny guy, despite his deep voice. Not much on skinny guys. Still he could talk to me over the phone - right? And his hair extensions are GREAT in the Crow)
hehe...Heath Ledger...I watched "10 things I Hate About You" at this flute sleepover thing...there were 21 of us drooling high school girls and 1 bored-out-of-his-mind guy...
1) Orlando Bloom in FotR = :P :P :P
2) John Malkovitch c/w wig in Dangerous Liaisons = :P :P :P
3) Val Kilmer in Willow = :P :P :P
4) Brad Pitt in Interview With a Vampire = :P :P :P
5) Antonio Banderas in Interview With a Vampire = :P :P
6) that vampire with long dark hair in Lost Boys = :P :P
7) Oded Fhrer in the Mummy = :P :P :P :P
8) Paulo Maldini from AC Milan = :P :P :P
9) that Tarabas bloke from The Cave of the Golden Rose = :P :P :P
10) HW Elrond = :P :P :P :P :P
11) President Vladimir Putin = :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P
HW Elrond, yes indeedy.
Oded Fehr, absolutely!
PP Four drool buckets each for:
Hugo Weaving in FotR
Bendon Frasier in the Mummy
Oded Fhrer (Is that the maji?) the Mummy
Antonio Banderas in Zorro
Sean Connery in Red October (vroom vroom)
Patrick Stewart as Picard
Jonathan Frakes (with moustache/ without he's just another girly man...) as Riker
Hugh Jackman in X Men
P:P Three each for:
Orlando, Viggo and Sean (Boromir) in FOTR
Val Kilmer in The Saint
Justin Whalin (as Jimmy Olsen) in Lois and Clark
Elijah Wood in FOTR (okay, I'm coming out as a hobbitphile!!!)
Bruce Willis in 5th Element
Jerry Doyle (as Garibaldi) in Babylon 5
Bruce Boxleiner (as Scarecrow) in Sacrecrow and Mrs. King
Timmothy Dalton as anything...
(Piecrce Brosnan is a girly man!)
honorable mention to all the other hobbits
Oooh. I liked Timothy Dalton as Mr. Rochester (drool) in Jane Eyre - the BBC series. Came out in the early 80s...from then on I didn't mind having to read Jane Eyre for school.
Vladimir Putin is the sexiest man alive. 'kay, he's kinda short, but check out those blue eyes. I looove the way he speak Russian - very intellectual sounding, unlike his predecessors. And the lips....and of course, his mysterious KGB background. Plus he's President & soon to be dictator. Drool, drool. I've only liked two short-haired men in my life - one is Putin, and the other I married.
Putin is definitely one man that I would vote away my freedom of speech/press/human rights for. Russia here I come!
Pierce Brosnan is NOT a girly man (in the movies), in interviews, he's ridiculously full of himself (for a skinny guy)
Brosnan is far too skinny to be a Bond. Dunno why they picked him. Dalton was so much hunkier.
