Yea, but at one point he is looking at the necklace Arwen gave him, and not sure what to do with it. But it just could be my interpretation of that bit!

I never felt that either. I always felt she was trying too hard and while he thought she was lovely and strong he didn't see himself loving her. I like how she and Faramir (think that's the right one) exchange glances at the end almost in an attempt to let the viewer know she wasn't going to be alone for long.

My all time favorite is when the Rohirim appear at the top of the hill - at Helms Deep and charge, and then again at the Siege of (and would you believe I've lost it's name in my mind - the white city)....

Both of those bring a lump to my throat every time - just the way it brings relief to those beseiged...

As for quotes - my best friend and I tend to quote from "The Hobbit" many times "what's it got in it's pocketsies?"

DH says that all the time too. He also says something about "poppit" but I don't remember it from there.

Megan -- do you mean Minas Tirith -- the white city? Speaking of Minas Tirith, I loved it when Boromir spoke of the White City to Aragorn in Lothlorien. Trumpets were playing when he described it and he professed such love for his home. What acting!

M o e: Are you sure the "poppet" comment didn't come from Pirates of the Carribbean? We say "Hello Poppet" -- this was when the pirates found Elizabeth in her father's home.

That's why it didn't make sense! Thanks Diana!

Poppit, Does'nt that come from The Silver Chair, from the Narnia Chronicles?
I am sure the small giantess, when crooning over Jill calls her 'a poppit'
They must have used it in a few films. I have only seen the first Pirates of the Caribbean and it was very good.

We all LOVE the little dwarfy guy with the big ears - what's his name?

Strangely enough - none of my kids took to the book - I hope the movie hasn't affected Tolkein's popularity - such an original thinker/idea/story!

I never got the sense at all that Aragorn was swayed by Eowyn. He appreciated her - but he tells her straight out before he goes into the caves that she is in love with an ideal - not with him. He says

"It is a shadow and a thought that you love. I cannot give you what you seek."

He's saying that she hardly knows him - she has a crush in him. His heart is taken elsewhere.
