Squirrel·Friendly® has taken a back seat this month and I've been playing with a few of my favourite screenshots from the Lord of The Rings; the films, that is.





In particular, that image of Denathor's mouth after he has eaten a cherry tomato -- one of the most moving scenes in the trilogy. I have always been a fan of the books and I thought they portrayed his madness quite well indeed. If you have seen the extended versions, you will recognise Sauron's Mouthpiece, another favourite image of mine. I loved this scene, and I felt it was one of the more savage cuts in the films.

Andy Serkis as Gollum/Sméagol was also superb, and I loved the beginning of Return of The King. A little fact from these films: Serkis was never intended to play this voice/character; he signed up purely to do the 'body acting' for the animation of Gollum. The voice he used when jumping around on the animation set, getting himself into character, blew Jackson away. He was quickly stepped up to play Gollum!

A couple of other off-shoots from this series:

    *points at KS* hahaha

    goto love the Aussie dictionary ey?

    It's quite frustrating having Apple Safari, and Firefox attempting to correct your spelling to US English. One of these days they'll add an Aussie english option into these programs :p

    The avatars look great Ash :)
