    "Nostalgia Critic: Top 11 Dumbest Lord of the Rings Moments"

    There's an internet movies critic that I like very much, the Nostalgia Critic. His last video surprised me when I saw it: "Nostalgia Critic: Top 11 Dumbest Lord of the Rings Moments". It talks about the movies, rather than the books, but still very interesting, and I thing you guys would like to see it:

    So, what are your thoughts about?

    West Wind blew there; light upon the Silver Tree"[/i]

    That was pretty funny! I think the close-ups bit was a little over dramatic because I think all the close-ups that were used in the films seemed to work just fine without it feeling over done. I don't know why he had a problem with Gimli's comedic moments, because there are many serious/epic films that have at least one character like that. I think a dwarf being the comedic relief was a good fit.

    I guess the point he made about Legolas being "perfect" was one of the points that I agreed with most. I thought the films made elves seem a little too powerful, especially when Legolas took down that gigantic oliphant without even a drop of sweat, haha... Or maybe the films made orcs/uruk-hai seem a little too weak. I don't know...

    Gollum: "Oh Christ! Just propose already!!"

    lmao

    That was indeed pretty funny.

    Gotta say that I agree whole-heartedly on the what the fudge happened to Saruman bit. Probably the biggest disappointment in the trilogy for me.

    At some point you have to suspend your belief and allow for some things that you're not going to understand on a logical basis, so I'm okay with the Eagles not simply flying the ring to Mt. Doom and dropping it in. There's some reason for it, and we don't necessarily have to know it.

    I did recently make a thread that said why the eagles didn't fly them to Mt. Doom.

    "This isn't The Lord of the Rings, this is a [expletive deleted] Itchy & Scratchy cartoon!"

    Truer words have never been spoken.
    Faërie is a perilous land, and in it are pitfalls for the unwary and dungeons for the overbold. – J.R.R. Tolkien, ‘On Fairy-Stories’.

    I never thought about the Gandalf thing. I always thought it was a very long whip.
