Lol! I'm sure you did, Plastic! :D
So Lurtz is the Uruk-Hai leader? He looked pretty cool. Especially that passage where he has this "conversation" with Saruman, it's great! He looks very real. I expected to meet him in every one of my nightmares! :D

You mean the way he was born? I liked that too, the slimey parts. You'd expect Orcs to come from there! :D

Yup, try as I might while researching this weeks poll, I just couldn't find Peter Jackson's brain child name of Lurtz anywhere in Tolkien's text. :verysad: :grin:

With that bit with Lurtz being born from an egg, Games Workshop got the rights to make the miniatures and wargames. Now there Orcs are born from eggs and spores can't help but get the feeling he might have borrowed it from them.

Did you notice that the name Lurtz is not said once in the movie? Kind of funny to come up with an orc name and not use it!!
