Lord of the rings? Seriously? You couldn't have chosen something... oh I don't know... Shorter?
You may not remember but when I liveblogged sky high, I skipped at least a quarter of it.
So I'll just jump headfirst into this now that I've made it blatantly clear that I find this to be a waste of a perfectly good evening.
So it starts with some silhouettes on red and a very dramatic recollecting of how the rings were forged. My oh my.
And the master ring very dramatically gets transfered from one hero to another. hurrrr. durrrr.
The ring rapes? The dark lord captured the nine rings given to humans and turned them into ring rapes?
Two weirdos are out fishing and find the ring..
Bilbooooo! You old party animal, you. Bwahahahaha, Frodo looks riddic.
This wasn't my intention, by the way. I didn't go out looking for a random version of lotr, I swear. I just happened on it and frankly it was too good to pass up on.
But back to the movie (which is 2 hours long anyhow so I probably won't miss much) where bilbo just dramatically disappeared in a very dramatic fashion leaving everyone confused. Dramatically.
Weeeell, maybe not *that* dramatically. This is a cartoon afterall.
heh, my precioussss...
Yes, as a tidbit over here, I shall clear up that the version I'm watching is the earliest adaption of the novels, an animation made in 1978 and it covers the first half of The Lord of the Rings.
But come on, this version is absolutely ADORKABLE
"Seventeen yööaars past sleepahly in the shire."
Yes, I absolutely love whoever is narrating this story. I do, I really do.
good lord, Frodo, your legs are hairy.
But then again the british accents make everything better.
Gandalf, y so drama?
Gandalf: One ring to rule them all; one ring to find them. One ring to keep them all, and in the darkness bind them!Drama.
So I'm not exactly sure what happened while my computer decided to restart about 6 times in a row but it had something to do with two wizards and twinkly lights and now Frodo & CO are hiding under a tree while some hooded black thing vaguely looks like it might be moving but honestly it'd be better described as a standing seizure.
Red glowy eyes and all.
Well if that wasn't the weirdest thing ever.
Wow Sam, way to be inspirational and everything.
Ohlook, an animated drunken orgy.
//Good god, I'm only half an hour in.//
Yes, Frodo, great idea. Sing and dance on a table while trying to be anonymous and invisible. Really, great.
My name is aragorn, son of arathorn.
synchronised drama. are those dark riders or whatever the fuck going to burst into song and dance now?
Okay first of all. How old are those hobbit things? Cause they kind of act as if they were twelve but according to the narrator they have to be well over 17.
Second of all: what th heck are those dark things attacking them+ they look like kangaroos with gas masks. geesh.
Kangaroos with gas masks and capes.
Dramatic capeflinging action, wooden swordwielding and frodo dies. No? Darn.
It was an evil knife that struck him, Sam. As opposed to a good knife with happy intentions?
I must admit, I quite liked the Orlando Bloom version of you. Cept for the eyebrows. The eyebrows are freaky.
So now the enemy is a skull with two exhaust pipes. What even..?
this movie confuses me to no end. I also still can't figure out the names of the hobbits and what the fuck is going on with that ring.
Has anyone ever considered declawing those black riders? Just a thought.
I like the horses though. They pretty.
I. Am. So. Confused.
Where did the elf and the Aragorn and the hobbitcult dissappear to? What?
Tha ringgggg, tha ringggggg...
Oooh, where did those horns come from?
Magical sparkly tidal wave? Wut?
So many questions...
Hellooo, Dumbeldore. Where did you come from? How can you just leave Hogwarts to speak gibberish to some hobbit? Where are your priorities, man?
Duuuude, second Dumbledore..?
bilbo, you old party dawg, you. Hiding out and having a good life? tsk.
I have no words... Stoned bilbo is stoned...
so if there's dumbledore, does that mean that the dark lord they keep referring to is voldemort?
also, i'm already bored as fuck and therefore doubt at i will make it futrther than the beginining of the journey. An hour in, I give up.
Yes, you heard it.
I GIVE UP
It seems that I still don't like Lord of the Rings. Animated or not.
Goodday to you.
Looks like you are going to have to give me a new challenge for I have failed this one.
