How Hollywood may depict characters from LOTR while still
staying true to the Medieval fantasy time period:
Aragorn A tall handsome man, who never fails to have a quick witty come
back, and a funny catch phrase, at such opportune times as when massive armies are
attacking, ensuring certain death. He is dressed in dark green leathers, with a
long cloak, covering his body, concealing his armor. Theyll be many a time,
when Aragorn reveals himself in a heroic, dramatic moment, by opening his cloak,
revealing his shiny metal breastplate, which never fails to inspire awe in all that
are within his kingly presence. He has such skill with his sword, that Orcs just
jump on his sword, leaving piles of dead victims at his feet. When he yells the
name of Narsil, his blade, the foes scream, and flee, for they know that the great
warrior Aragorn is near!
Sauron When reading The Lord of the Rings, there is nothing to
gives you a definite description of Sauron, and so you might imagine him as a shadow
of evil, a presence that can be felt, and is difficult to see. Perhaps shrouded
in cloaks, perhaps when looking at him, there are only signs of a creature hidden
beneath his terrible malice. But oh no! Not in this movie. He is tall, rough
looking man, strong in build, clad in all black leather armor, with spikes protruding
from the shoulders, and waist. His helmet has large horns coming from either side,
and his eyes turn completely black when he his angry. He has horrible booming laugh,
with a hint of cackling in it. You never get to see Sauron in battle of course, but
just for fun, theyve given him some lines. Apparently the script writers thought
it would be good to include puns, such as was seen in one of the more recent Batman
films, including Mr. Freeze. Sauron has many of these one-liners, including, "Soon
Gondor will have a Shadow over it, the very shadow of my doom! Mwahahaha!"
Thats just one of the witty one-liners that Sauron will be delivering on the big
Gandalf They went all out for Gandalf. When he is still Gandalf the Grey,
he has a great big blue hat, with a purple feather in it. He wears a great big grey
robe, made of animal fur, the goes down to his feet, and drags slightly behind him.
He walks with a slight limp (a rather stylish limp) and has a nice golden staff, with
a glass ball at the end, in which he grips. Hes never without a cigar in the
other hand, and followed by several lovely ladies. (not to mention some great gold
chains that hang around his neck). After he makes the transformation into Gandalf
the White, he keeps his same style, only his robes are now sparkling white, with
diamonds covering it, and the woman that follow him around are now Elven! Gandalf,
much like Aragorn and Sauron, is also equipped with some great one-liners, (which are
completely out of place of course).
Well, the script writers are working day and night on the other characters.
Im sure theyll do a great job with them, just like the three characters
above. As soon as theyve finished some more, Ill make sure to send
