Mini-Gollums in a mini-Gollum gun? Oh man, I want one! That would come in so handy!
I actually kinda see what you mean, Swampfaye. I never felt sorry for Frodo (or Sam) in the book, except for the fact that that Frodo couldn't stay home in the Shire (I hated that). All things considered, the quest turned out pretty well for them (especially for Sam, unless you like slash fan fic...). But in the movie, yeah, I do kinda dread what they have coming. And it's totally because Elijah Wood looks so young and breakable, and Sean Astin is so plump and sturdy-looking. Poor little guys. Good casting, if they can make /me/ feel maternal (because I'm really not). So yeah, for me anyway, I do feel sorry for movie-Frodo and Sam, but only movie-Frodo and Sam (not the book ones). These darn films are going to give me multiple personalities.
