Thank you! I’ve been saying this for years, and no one believes me. Fruit on pizza is just wrong.

Pretty sure I don’t wanna be right.

The Lord of the Rings Meme | ten scenes (2/10)

Farewell to Lórien.

This is my favorite fucking scene. 

If you’ve read the Silmarillion, you know who Fëanor was. If you don’t, Fëanor was the dickhead who created the Silmarils: three indescribably beautiful and magical jewels that contained the light and essence of the world before it became flawed. They were the catalyst for basically every important thing that happened in the First Age of Middle Earth.

It is thought that the inspiration for the Silmarils came to Fëanor from the sight of Galadriel’s shining, silver-gold hair.

He begged her three times for single strand of her beautiful hair. And every time, Galadriel refused him. Even when she was young, Galadriel’s ability to see into other’s hearts was very strong, and she knew that Fëanor was filled with nothing but fire and greed.

Fast forward to the end of the Third Age.

Gimli, visiting Lorien, is also struck by Galadriel’s beauty. During the scene where she’s passing out her parting gifts to the Fellowship, Galadriel stops empty-handed in front of Gimli, because she doesn’t know what to offer a Dwarf. Gimli tells her: no gold, no treasure… just a single strand of hair to remember her beauty by.

She gives him three. Three.

And this is why Gimli gets to be an Elf Friend, people. Because Galadriel looks at him and thinks he deserves what she refused the greatest Elf who ever lived—- and then twice that. And because he has no idea of the significance of what she’s just given him, but he’s going to treasure it the rest of his life anyway.

Just look at that smile on Legolas’s face in the last panel. He gets it. He knows the backstory. And I’m pretty sure this is the moment he reconsiders whether Elves and Dwarves can’t be friends after all.

Everyone look at this great fucking post

Jesus. I knew this, but didn’t get the significance until it was explained so well.

Bill Murray on Gilda Radner:
“Gilda got married and went away. None of us saw her anymore. There was one good thing: Laraine had a party one night, a great party at her house. And I ended up being the disk jockey. She just had forty-fives, and not that many, so you really had to work the music end of it. There was a collection of like the funniest people in the world at this party. Somehow Sam Kinison sticks in my brain. The whole Monty Python group was there, most of us from the show, a lot of other funny people, and Gilda. Gilda showed up and she’d already had cancer and gone into remission and then had it again, I guess. Anyway she was slim. We hadn’t seen her in a long time. And she started doing, “I’ve got to go,” and she was just going to leave, and I was like, “Going to leave?” It felt like she was going to really leave forever.So we started carrying her around, in a way that we could only do with her. We carried her up and down the stairs, around the house, repeatedly, for a long time, until I was exhausted. Then Danny did it for a while. Then I did it again. We just kept carrying her; we did it in teams. We kept carrying her around, but like upside down, every which way—over your shoulder and under your arm, carrying her like luggage. And that went on for more than an hour—maybe an hour and a half—just carrying her around and saying, “She’s leaving! This could be it! Now come on, this could be the last time we see her. Gilda’s leaving, and remember that she was very sick—hello?”We worked all aspects of it, but it started with just, “She’s leaving, I don’t know if you’ve said good-bye to her.” And we said good-bye to the same people ten, twenty times, you know. And because these people were really funny, every person we’d drag her up to would just do like five minutes on her, with Gilda upside down in this sort of tortured position, which she absolutely loved. She was laughing so hard we could have lost her right then and there.It was just one of the best parties I’ve ever been to in my life. I’ll always remember it. It was the last time I saw her.”

I think if someone donated a kidney to save my life, I would still feel roughly the same level of debt to them as I do people who introduce me to amazing bands.

Stories in a moment

One of the best things in film is when so many things come together to concisely tell a story that you could explain for minutes, but you experienced in a few seconds. One of my favorite examples, and the first time I really considered this, was in a story I heard about Ernest Hemingway. No idea if this is true (probably isn’t) but how the story goes…

Ernest Hemingway drinking in a bar, as he did quite often, was waxing intellectual with other men there. He starting commenting on concise story telling which others did not regard in the same manner as Ernest. To prove his point, he said he could write a story, emotions and all, with less than 10 words. The others at the bar accepted his bet and ponied up their money. After a few minutes of thinking, Ernest did it in six words: “For sale. Baby shoes. Never worn.” Every man admitted defeat without hesitation.

Now I loved that story because of how amazing it was to write 6 words, but tell a story that was far longer in mind. You imagine the hopes of having a child, the preparation of buying it’s clothing, the final acceptance of knowing it will never happen for you, so you reluctantly sell what is essentially those hopes. I wrote 34 words about 6 words and it feels like I only scratched the surface to what it could mean.

So why the fuck are we talking about this? Well like I said I am a fan of when this happens in film, and I feel like it is under appreciated. So here are a few examples.

DARK KNIGHT
One of the more recent is one with the Joker from Dark Knight. Nolan said that he never did want to do an origin story for the Joker, which is why we get so many stories of how he got the scars recycled from the different origin stories from comics. But there are the perfect amount of subtle hints that you understand him anyways. When we first meet him really when he sits down with the mobsters, he already has a commanding presence. He speaks plainly, directly, awkwardly. He even suggests KILLING Batman, something so unfathomable that everyone laughs at the solution. Then Gamble says what a lot of people are thinking:

(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hj-L1WD-3WU#t=2m00s)
Gamble: You’re crazy.
Joker: I’m not. No. I’m. Not. 

 

From that one exchange we learn so much about the character. This is not the first time he has been called crazy. And you see with his conviction and mood shift it bothers him that despite how right he knows he is, other people don’t get him, and that bothers him. He has emotions, and he has been teased and hurt before. At this point in the story, we know the “magic trick” set him up as confident. This moment shows a human side filled with frustrations, doubt, and even fears. And then his genius is shown when he walks right out with a string of grenades tied to him. The whole scene is 2:30, but the 5 seconds in the exchange with Gamble tells an incredible amount about the clown price of crime. After that moment, I actually felt like I knew the Joker regardless of what happened after.

 
TOMBSTONE 
Doc Holiday portrayed by Val Kilmer stole this movie. Doc Holiday was the most interesting character in the movie, and was still the best performance despite all of his complexity. We honestly shouldn’t think that much of Doc as a person. He kills with no guilt, drinks, womanizes and verbally (or physically) bullies whoever he thinks is less than him whether they deserve it or not. But his one redeeming quality is his loyalty, and nothing shows it better than the scene before the fight at the OK corral. We know Doc doesn’t mind a little gun fight now and again, but thats not why he does it.

(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_EOctfH_NA0#t=2m19s)
Wyatt: It’s not your problem Doc. You don’t have to mix up in this.
Doc: … That is a hell of a thing for you to say to me.

Doc, despite all of his fault shows one thing there, he is a loyal friend to the end. He is actually insulted that Wyatt would assume that Doc would not think of Wyatt’s problems as his own. Though this doesn’t expressly say the history between the 2, you completely understand it. There is literally nothing Doc would not do for Wyatt and you get that in 10 seconds of film time. They reinforce it later by Doc saying Wyatt is his friend, but it didn’t even need to be said. We already know from this scene alone.


I had 2 more I wanted to show, but alas my editing software does not want to work with me so you only get the clips I could find on youtube. So you will have to wait for those. Or you probably won’t be waiting at all since this was more or less to remind me how awesome these things were before I go senile.

Onward and Upwards ladies and gentlemen.

This movie is kind of a big deal.
