It seems all the Hobbits are women.

Um. Ok. Uh... I really don't even know where to begin.

I suppose it would be silly to point out that I don't think there were any glasses in Middle Earth, particularly not on Elves. And all the hobbits look like unhappy lesbians.

The Ring Wraith is pretty cool, though. And I imagine the geeky ladies will swoon over Aragorn, who is actually pretty close to the original, physically.

That seems harsh CD, they are just people having some fun.

Civil: Damn, that's funny. Unhappy lesbians indeed...

Still, one has to admire their determination. I could maybe see myself doing Legolas if somebody else provided the costume(I do look somewhat similar to Bloom, and have real hair similar to that of the Legolas wig), but I could never actually take the time to create the costumes. And I'm not entirely sure I understand how the song and dance routine works into it all. OTOH, it can't be as expensive as flying helicopters for a hobby, so maybe they're the smart ones. Glass houses and all that.

It's amazing how much free time people have when they aren't wasting it on sexual intercourse, isn't it?

you mean when they are wasting it bowing down to their hollywood gods masters.

One wishes to urge these people to get a life.

They have a life, xmutex. It just involves making costumes instead of watching TV all the time.

Wow, Eowyn seems to have really let herself go since the last movie. Must be all the fine buttered pastries of which Gondor is so famous.
