"Why Does It Hurt So Much?"

Post by Radaghast on Wed Jun 03, 2015 3:38 am

I heard and read about this scene and I wondered if it was as awful as it was described so I found it on YouTube:



If possible, it's worse. Worse still are all the upvotes and comments Rolling Eyes

Biggest pile of shat in any film going !! You just dont act like that when youve only met someone for 5 mins ! get a grip ! she must be retarded in some way ? Did she have a puppy as a child & it ran off ? FFS ! "I dont want love" she sniffs, WOT !? after getting all misty eyed just cuz he's got big brown eyes & a cheeky smile ? ! Shes regretting not finding out what was down his trousers ! after all, he said, could be anything ! To late to find out now, youve blown your chance ! Maybe Elvs are like angels & are Hermaphrodite ? Legolass looks so pissed off & why not ! hes been compared to a frigging dwarf, I bet he thinks hes well out of it with a crazy Elf chick that goes in for weird shit ! Not very confidence building tho is it ? Its not as if he was a 'lesser' Elf but, a whole different frigging species. I dont think Tolkien would have liked a love scene so soon, theres no substance to their story only titillation & double entendres, silly secondary school messing about.She wants to bury him ? oh yeah ? who will carry the body to...where ? got a shovel have you dear ? I would have thought Thranduil would have said something much more wise & in depth than "because it is real", wot !! ?? How could he even know ? Unless they sent telepathic porno thoughts to each other ( & poor old Leggy looking on none the wiser ) If she was meant to be the focus female in this tripe'ology than she failed beautifully ! Arwen had some dignity at least, she didnt fall to bits & cry on the floor under her David Cassidy poster. ......Ive just had my breakfast as well, what a load of crap this is !

I don't think "Because it was real." was all that bad a moment in itself. It's one of hte more decent pieces of writng in he rushed round up at the end. It's just that it was completely lacking in context, as Azriel points out above. They didn't have any great romance, we were just told they did. Retconning and telling us there was more to the story than was actually there never really works as well as telling the story properly in the first place. Shrugging

They had more than 5 minutes together - remember that she stuck by him in Lake Town. What makes it fall flat is her reactions and confusion are more like a 14 year old girl than an elf warrior. The writing might work better for the audience for which it is intended.

It does say the deep depths of Tolkien lore... maybe something buried deep in elthirs archives?

first off I didn't mind the concept of Feast of Starlight, but the down the trousers joke ruined what could have been a nice moment. Nice. But not special. I wouldnt have minded another odd friendship between the two of them, not a romance, that went way too far. I know she was a rustic forest Elf in comparison to the High Elves, but still, flipping heck. It didn't mean anything nothing flagged up why she would have fallen for him apart from him being Aiden Turner. Rolling Eyes

If BOFA had somehow included "What is Love", I would have been prepared to forgive it for quite a lot of missteps.  I unironically love that song a ton.

Now, what did they spend money on? scratch Oh, yes. All that cgi that meant they couldn't get the last movie finished in time for general release. Rolling Eyes

If only. If they did, it would have meant the movies tanked Twisted Evil

Oh, I'm sure they aren't all two happy that the cost was almost a third of the gross. I'll give Peter that, he didn't scrimp on the spending. Not that it helped much. Razz
