The Lord of the Rings. It alludes to an integral part of the plot. The poem reads:

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.[1]


Figuring out who you want to be. I really like this part of the movie. I get all happy when I hear this poem, cause it's a pretty hopeful one. I think you don't always start off becoming who you are meant to be, sometimes it is a journey, sometimes you really are that diamond in the ruff. Sometimes you don't know what role a character will play, like the Gollum character towards the end.

I think the movie is neat cause you have this King masquerading around as a ranger, eluding his true destiny. While eluding his true destiny he also eludes true love. The two being tied into one. Cause of course Arwen's father will not allow her to marry him, unless he takes up his role as king.

I like the dream scene where she gives him the evening star, and says it's hers to give. I think in that scene would have been cool if he had given her a ring. Ofcourse even in the dream world she would probably still have needed approval from her elven father, or maybe not, cause in spirit your hearts can do and say things that you are prevented from doing in the real world.

Watching the characters transform over the course of the three movies is amazing. I think it's one of my favorite trilogies. Not only because all of the characters are so truly worthy, but because friendships, romance, honor, loyalty, destiny, still mean something in the movie. You don't get that a lot in the real world, and I think that so sad, because it's truly needed, especially in our time period.

I like the scene where he finally takes up the sword and decides to fulfill what he is meant to do. Ofcouse if Arwen had gone on the ship, would the sword ever have been reforged, and would he ever have left off the ranger role, and taken up his role as king? I like to think that another way would have presented itself, but sometimes one thing set's into play another thing.

Anyways if you have never seen this trilogy, it's worthwhile. It's small people overcoming amazing odds, it's loyalty and friendship like you can only dream of. It's romance and watching a destiny be fulfilled. It's spiritual and mystical. It's so many things rolled into one.

Galadriel: "Even the smallest person can change the course of the future." ...

Gandalf: "There was never much hope. Just a fool's hope."


We are once again upon such a time.

"One government to rule them all, using the snitches to find them. One surveillance society to bring them all in, and in their ignorance bind them."

"But there is hope, even the smallest target can make a difference."

And we must try to make a difference.
