Has anybody else seen this? What do you think? Funny? Stupid? Over the top? So-so?
Well, it's LOTR related - so here you go. It's 18 minutes long, mind.

Other than being a bit overlong and dragging in a few places (Hmmm... I seem to remember a lot of non-fans of the actual films making similar comments about them -_^)I thought this was very amusing! Loved the bit with the cup ("No, you need to be holding the small one"... or something to that effect.) The Blind Nazgul bits were hilarious! (I've always stated that they must have been blind not to notice Frodo holding the Ring out to the one at Osgiliath!)Thanks for posting this.

: ) I'm glad you liked me posting this. It's always nice when people appreciate the things I decide to share in lj-communities.
I really liked the part in the beginning with the hair/blow-dryer as well! And then I loved that the Nazgul was riding a little Shetland pony or whatever the cutie was!
I agree with you, it has always felt a bit odd in that movie-scene with Frodo offering the ring up in Osgiliath! My rationalization has always been that the flying thing the Nazgul was riding could see it, but it was all in slow-motion (or slowish anyways), and the beast is so submissive to its rider that it wasn't about to act on its own. And as for the Nazgul it/himself - I figured they were fairly blind to the "regular world" (seeing it all in that misty darkness that Frodo and Sam describe when having the ring on), and so being more dependent on their other senses (such as sniffing and feeling the ring).
On a side note, I sometimes like comparing the Nazgul to the Dementors in Harry Potter.

Sorry for the long ramble, I just felt so inspired by the thought of that scene and the apparent blindness of the wraiths!
