Seriously, though, I have to say that even after seeing TTT and appreciating Brad Dourif's fine performance, I am not one of the growing number of Grima Wormtongue admirers. Just too squicky-looking, and you know that totally-evil-selling-out-to-Saruman thing? Not so attractive. But I got this idea for an icon and had to use it, especially since I knew it would amuse [ profile] meril and possibly [ profile] nasubionna (although the latter, if she sees this, is probably wondering who on earth I am).

I'm all about the Argus Filch love, though. Not in the HP books, but Movie!Filch is hilarious. I'll probably make a Filch icon before very long. And getting back to LotR, maybe a Smeagol icon. The first time I saw Gollum I thought, "Ick." Once he started talking to himself, though, I just wanted to cuddle him and feed him soup.

Hm. Between all this and agreeing with [ profile] lizbee's comment about Aragorn/Horse (was that PJ & Co. making fun of their own sappy attempts at giving Aragorn more romance? I like to think so), people are going to wonder about me...
This afternoon Hubby and I dumped the kids at Grandma's and zipped off for our annual Boxing Day LotR date. 'Twas fun, and three hours went by quickly, but I have to say that I had a few more quibbles with this installment of the trilogy than I did with the first one:

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: One Viewer's Heavily Spoilerish Opinions of TTT )

All that being said, I did enjoy the movie, and am looking forward to the final installment. But I can't honestly say that I'm all a-flutter to run out and see it again.
Okay, maybe I'm really behind the times here, since I'm a LotR fan without being part of LotR fandom, but I just discovered this site and was quite amused by it:

Figwit Lives!

Like they say, there are no small parts...
