Pictures that could have come from LOTR - but didn't!

I saw this pic from the movie "Van Helsing" today, and it struck me as AMAZINGLY similar to the bridge scene with Aragorn and Arwen:





And then there is THIS one, that's reminiscent of when Aragorn bursts in through the doors of the Golden Hall:



If anyone finds any more "could've been out of Lord of the Rings" scenes, this is their new home.

^^^  Haha!   You're sooo right Em, David Bowie as the Goblin King has always reminded me of Elrond too - it must be something to do with the, er, rather interesting hairstyles of both characters.   And yeah, if Galadriel was a rockstar instead of an elf, she'd have to be Stevie Nicks.

How about this comparison shot of Tobey Maguire(of Spiderman fame) and Frodo in the Prancing Pony scene - which sadly I can't claim credit for since I found it on some guy's blog:

Granted this one is taking it too far, but IMHO funny



Sam tried to explain the quest to Frodo's cousin Paulie Baggins but much like any other hobbit in the Shire he couldn't quite grasp the concept.

Sam: "We're taking a ring to Mount Doom!"
Paulie: "<burp>..Bud-die?"

^^^  Haha ROFL!!!  Oh boy Em - that's a classic!  I'll have to try and top that, but I don't think it'll be easy.

... and BTW, do you get the distinct impression we're gonna have this thread to ourselves...? 

Here's another couple:









^^^  The age-defying effect of The Ring was more than Frodo had bargained for!   (Did I hear someone say Benjamin Button?)

Sorry for the double-post people, the above post has already been edited once, and I absolutely HAD TO include this shot of Jonah Hill and the fabulous Michael Cera, from "Superbad":



Samwise(aka Jonah):  "We finally made it Mr Frodo - it's the Black Gate!"

^^^ Ha ha ha ha   These are pure gold Gemstar.  I don't know where you find these.

But here's one more for you






Safety Dance ^^^^^

vs.

Rosie's Dance....




We can dance with some hobbits, we can leave that ring behind, coz if the elves don't dance, and if they don't dance well there...no friends of mine.  And we can dance...we can sing!

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
And also...







"After the Ring... got washed away....hmmm hmmm.something.. into Mount Doom oh...After the ring..yeah yeah Bay-Bay!"

OMG!  Do you wanna know why the "Safety Dance" one is amazing from my POV?  I JUST watched this video clip last night, and said the same thing to my hubby!!!

I'm actually quite shocked those two blonde dudes WEREN'T cast as extras!

Gimli:  "Slow down there young Strider!  Don't you know I'm wasted on cross-country?"

^ White Witch of Narnia:  "Instead of a Dark Lord you shall have a Queen!!! - uh - a witch... I meant a witch." 

(Note: Don't be fooled by cheap imitations.  For the genuine Galadriel, see below:)
