    Questions on Arwen

    What's your opinion on Arwen? Her character wasn't developed much in the books, but she is a prominent character in the movies. Did you like/not like her in the beginning? Did your opinion of her change as time went on? Why? Do you prefer her in the books or movies? (Please note that I'm not trying to start any heated debates. lol)

    Book Arwen

    Hello, New Forums.

    Why isn't there a special part of the forums that just has to do with festivals or the candy jars at Turbine? I mean, that's all that's important right?

    My opinion of her hasn't changed.
    I prefer her in the books.




    Book Arwen
    1. What did you like about her?
    2. What did you not like about her?
    1. She wasn't melodramatic about everything.
    2. No character depth, but then none of them really have that.


    Movie Arwen
    1. What did you like about her?
    2. What did you not like about her?
    1. Liv Tyler drew a willy on the clapperboard during filming and proceeded to lick it. I was torn between hilarity and arousal.
    2. Her character got whiny. Oh and she magically started dying as Sauron grew stronger, but I suppose that's bad script writing and nothing to do with the character itself.
    And she has the audacity to f*cking replace Glorfindel McBadass.

    Her character was noble, she aided Aragorn when the times of adversity.

    2. What did you not like about her
    That she wasn't expanded to know how she thought on the conflict of man-race.

    Movie Arwen
    1. What did you like about her?
    Liv Tyler is hot.
    2. What did you not like about her?
    The moment she "lost the will" and joined aragorn in half-existance, that just didn't happen in the books.

    Lliked the book Arwen more.

    Movie Arwen
    1. Likes - Liv Tyler for the most part seemed a good choice. the close-up on her face when on horseback after she has the vision of her son was worthy of the beauty of the Arwen of the book. the image of her dressed in black standing beside Aragorn's grave with Elrond's speech in the background was haunting and beautiful.

    2. dislikes - the movie implies she gave up her immortality and gave it to Frodo at the Bruinen. but my biggest dislike was how giddy they made her at Aragorn's coronation. yes, they were both happy, but she was over 2000 years old, not some giddy teenager.
