Oh yeah, Priscilla is much better than To Wong Foo. Wesley Snipes was one heck of a scary drag queen.

I liked seeing Elrond's fighter qualities played up, too, not only because he was one, but because elves must be tough to portray these days /without/ making them effeminate. They're described as beautiful, elegant, graceful... all words more commonly used for women. So the lovely Haldir was more along the lines of what I was expecting (fearing) to see. But HW, despite the dress and the butterfly barrette, didn't seem fey (no pun intended) to me. Less pretty than I expected, to be sure, but I didn't mind. I could definitely see him leading an elf army.

Ears in the fridge? Ew! What's that all about?

yeah the butterfly barrette. that was hilarious! i kept laughing during the movie everytime i saw it. ok, well giggling. it kinda looked ridiculous on him.
when i first saw him in the prologue, i didn't even think he was an elf. not at all what i was expecting. just kept trying to remember where i saw him from.

butterfly barrette? I missed that one...

Elrond was definitely grim enough for a fighter...actually he really didn't seem effeminate to me in the movie, either, despite HW's feelings...

I don't really think they needed to play up the tough guy aspect, though...Legolas wasn't particularly tough, but he still came across without being really girly.

I think someone in the last 5 Elrond pages mentioned a rumor that HW kept a spare pair of his pointed elven ears in his dressing room refrigerator, just in case his regular ones were damaged. :)

Grondy needed to clear that up so bad he said it twice!! :D

So Is HW a bit like Geoffrey Dahmer then? And what IS a Barrette? Is it like a Burretta?

Grondy says the laugh is really on me now. It took until today to figure out what I had said twice, too many trees, not enough forest. I have since deleted my double post. [Edited on 26/1/2002 by Grondmaster]

The Elrond Ear Tip thing was me...

I read it in a Melbourne Nespaper article and decided to share with those not priveledged enough to be included in its circulation.

HW Kept a pair of Elrond Tips as a souvenir. Apparently they go soft in the heat so he keeps them in his fridge. His kids like to play with them. Impress their friends I suppose.

It is still very yuk. It has to be unhygienic to keep prosthetics with food...

I think they might be referring to Elrond's sissy hair do. If you look at the back, its got lots of pretty braids and things. Interestingly, Arwen just wears her her fairly plain. Maybe it is some sort of rank indicator, like the pretty head bands...

I still think Elrond should have short hair. He really was a practical man and not a vain one. :)

hm..
i don't think the long hair was about vanity, as all the elves in the movie had long hair.
what was it that Plutarch said? long hair makes handsome men better looking and ugly ones more frightening. or something like that.
