Can’t remember them well enough to know which of the first 2 was better. Which ones the shortest?


frodo lol




ahhhh wankaahhhhhhhhhhhh


Wait I’ve got this.



le frodoi


I’m really annoyed that this has updated to show your post above mine.


One of the traits of the hobbits, a sort of sub species of humans which feature heavily in these films, was that they are not as tall as regular folk


pretty sure frodo is actually described as not being as short as the others so we’re all twats really


Oh this was never in question


The Lord of the Rings films cannot be judged on length without a degree of discussion about which cut of the film is being discussed.

For example, the theatrical cut of The Fellowship of the Ring is the shortest but if you accidentally watch the extended version it ends up being longer than The Return of the King


Why doesn’t frodo, the largest hobbit, simply fly that Eagle thing to the volcano with the eye or whatever the plot hole is


I’ll amend my vote accordingly


Fellowship has always been my favourite
