This one is for the women out there. I was under ten-years-old when The Lord of the Rings trilogy came out and I obviously couldn’t go to the theater to see it. I had to get older and read the books before I could see the movies. Anywhoo… when I did finally read the books and was allowed to watch the movies, I enjoyed them immensely. I was a teenager at the time, so of course, I was attracted to the good looking men on screen. And for those of you who like him, I’m sorry, Legolas was never an option for me. My older sister had a long standing crush on him, and I felt like he was forever tainted because of it (ha, ha, ha!).
When I first watched the trilogy, I was interested in guys like Aragorn, Boromir, Faramir, and Eomer. They were just so cute! As I got older, and The Hobbit came out, my tastes narrowed a little bit. I don’t really care for elves. Sorry, just don’t. Maybe it’s their cold exteriors and arrogant attitudes? Just a thought. I preferred the men and the dwarves (The Hobbit) for sure. Now that we’re all adults, I asked my younger sister who she liked. Of course, the elves were not on her list either. Her list was as follows:
The Lord of the Rings
- Boromir (Sean Bean)
- Faramir (David Wenham)
- Eomer (Karl Urban)
- Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen)
- Thorin (Richard Armitage)
- Fili (Dean O’Gorman)
- Kili (Aidan Turner)
- Bard (Luke Evans)
In the grand scheme of things, MY list for both is below:
- Thorin/Boromir (I can’t pick, so don’t make me)
Sorry! Bard didn’t make my cut. The men all have a passion for something, and the same goes for the dwarves. The elves are just kind of bleh. No offense to them if they actually do something good, but there isn’t much else to them. Legolas was better in The Lord of the Rings than in The Hobbit. Just as a person, I mean.
But, the guys my sister and I picked are sexy men, who can fight, and kick orc ass! Because they’re SO long, we only watch them every once in a while. We tend to tell each other when we’re about to do it though, because we enjoy the other’s company and commentary throughout. I am probably due to watch them here again soon, and my younger sister and I will gush over the cute guys and crack jokes for the entire 3 hours of each movie. We have way too much fun!
And on that note, it’s been real!
