Faramir is an incredibly likeable character from the book. It speaks to his unfortunate treatment in the film that he ranks on so few favourite-film lists.

My top three for the book: Gollum, Faramir, and Frodo.
For the film: Gandalf, Boromir, and uh... Eomer I guess.
Who looks the coolest in the movie?
Well... Mr. Petes himself of course. His three cameos!

Book fav.: aragorn probably, also legolas when he joined, also the hobbits always held a place in ny nine-year old heart, especially merry and pippin.
Movie fav.: legolas like comeone i was like 10...
The coolest looking in the movie? Hmm.... I dunno... Gandalf perhaps, because he's a kick ass old fart with a sens of humour Smile
