10 years ago, wow. The first time I saw FOTR is of the most memorable movie moments of my life.

And Dominic Monaghan is so cool. Why isn't he a bigger star?

October 27, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSawyer

Sawyer, Dominic Monaghan isn't a bigger star because he has slaughtered one of literature's greatest characters. Same goes for the other three nerds, although I assume that Elijah Wood at least will stay on the B-list for quite a long time, cause he's also a former child star and will portray the opposite of Frodo again in the next two years.

willy -- which character are we talking about. what slaughter did i miss ;) ?

Nat, I don't know which character Dominic Monaghan was playing in The Travesty of The Lord of the Rings, but in the end credits they claim that Merry was his role.

I love Tolkien as much as the next geek, but I wouldn't call Merry one of literature's greatest characters. He's not even the most interesting hobbit in Lord of the Rings.

Pathetic Fact About Me #1: Until I started watching "Lost," I couldn't tell Merry and Pippin apart. I thought they were played by twins.

You were talking about We Need to Talk About Kevin having so many posters the other day, and guess what? Another poster! This one is really cool. My favorite of them all, though.

Biggs, I did not say that Merry is the most interesting Hobbit in The Lord of the Rings. But I do think that Merry's quiet common sense, which grows to real leadership ability, makes for an absolutely great and fascinating character.
Evan, that's because they're virtually indiscernible from each other in the Jackson films. Both were turned into buffoons.

So what you're saying is you didn't care for the LOTR films.

Another attempt at making Justin Timberlake a real gosh movie star, I see. And once again, he falls short in the process.
