    Awesome!

    -- you may want to make it a link, though, since the language isn't picked up by the profanity filter...

    I thought Peter Jackson did the "Really Really" short edition already, the "Really" short edition being the "extended" editions.

    I'm still waiting for a "Full" version.

    could be waiting a long time waiting.

    People who would find this amusing avoid everything LOTR and people who actually give a monkey about the story that Tolkien wrote are just reminded how painfully unfulfilling the films were.

    Graphic wise, is that your own work edesign? I saw your recent animated Kiora Knightmare avatar and notice familiar macro styled captions.

    yeah, I just googled NSFW.

    That couldn't get anyone the sack could it? not safe for the minors sensitive to shock swear words. nothing really offensive about it, it's not even politically incorrect.

    It is funny, but there are reasons why it wouldn't work, mostly for the same reason why Isidul couldn't drop it in the lava of Orodruin in the first place.

    were people not paying attention? ;)

    I dunno, it wouldn't get anyone in trouble anywhere that I've worked, and they are quite uptight places. But if some reckon it would, now they are warned :D

    Yeah but you forgot about the Nazguls...only after the ring gets trashed is it safe to enter Mt Doom ;)

    Thanks, I was planning to see the movie again, but I guess that's not necessary ... :)

    Maybe I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure that is how the film went anyway. .... perhaps I shouldn't have drunk that bottle of brass polish before I saw it...oh well, you live and learn.

    Anyway, I think mini mod privileges should be rescinded following such a flagrant use of nasty language ... I don't care whether you are directly quoting Professor Tolkien's or not !!;)

    Yeah, somehow I think the Nazgul would have had something to say about the Eagles just blithely flying into Mordor...but still, you gotta figure, if there were more than nine Eagles to keep all the Nazgul occupied, they actually might have made it to Mount Doom!

    Isildur, on the other hand, was just a weak-willed wuss who gave in to temptation. ;)

    So, what, you don't like the 20hrs of extended footage?

    That was great, thanks! If you don't mind, I may e-mail this to some friends of mine who will probably have a fit because they have no lives. But hey, I think it's funny, so screw 'em. :D

    (and if I may make a request, Star Wars prequels next please... as little Jar Jar as possible, preferably)

    Nice. :D

    Most movies can be boiled down like this - but the fun part is watching them struggle.

    From what I understand, Tolkein actually realized that plot hole and wished he could have corrected it.

    He also thought the books were too short!

    Still, that clip is really funny, especially Gandalf's faces.

    And Elrond should have just shoved him into the volcano ring and all.

    Not bad except for the language. :D At places it goes a little too fast to read all the words. Are you aware of the original author?
