Does anyone share my passion for his art? His movies I mean are pure poetry for any unsettled soul.  He can make you hate him,  he can make you love him, but  all together when his work is finished you are left with the odd desire to applaud.

HOLY FUCKING SHIT LOOK HOW FUCKING FLY ELDONG LOOKS GOLD-PLATED GOODB YE

I DON’T THINK YOU REALIZE. I LITERALLY COULDN’T BREATHE PROPERLY FOR ACTUAL MINUTES.

And not because “oh hawt damn.” I just…THEY’RE DOING IT RIGHT. I WAS ALMOST CERTAIN THAT THEY WERE GOING TO EXCLUDE HIM. I THOUGHT PJ WAS GOING TO SCREW HIM OVER. AGAIN.

But, even if some things are altered (such as BOFA vs. Dol Guldur), they ARE having him FIGHT. Which is HUGE. Because for so many years (pretty much since the beginning, I think), people haven’t realized just how rich of a character Elrond is. He’s always just the healer, the good lord, the father, the “frowny guy with the Eyebrows of Doom.”

But he’s so, so, SO much more than that. He is a scion of kings. A prince. A lord. A warrior. A commander. And yes he is a healer and a father and a lord… But being a lord is also so much more than just sitting in councils and prophesying doom. It’s going out there with your troops, leading them to battle. And sometimes even to death.

We caught the barest glimpse of that in An Unexpected Journey. But it was just a glimpse. And I was almost certain, the way everything was being set up, that the glimpse was all we were going to get.

But now? Now I have hope.

And maybe now people will stop writing him constantly as a damsel in distress.

okokok so i have a lot to say about the visual choices that’ve been made here and i’m not sure i’m going to be able to turn feelings into words as much as i’d like to.

but. here goes.

so we’ve seen elrond in armour twice before. once was the last alliance (henceforth LA) armour, which we see as he fights alongside gil-galad against sauron

see the colours he wears as the king’s herald? take note. yeah.

you cant see them in this ref but his pants are like, greenish.

now compare that ^ to this.

totally different colour scheme that matches with the rest of his warriors in imladris. a little bulkier, though it looks less protective in some areas. (it’s actually not - it’s just evolved. look at the neck, and the way it’s shaped, and the thickness of the plates compared to the LA armour)http://33.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mdhnpuECBb1rhgvuao1_500.png

now go back up to the new still. it’s all business. there’s nothing extra there, everything is clean lines and form fitting and BUSINESS. and better protection. no dangly mail bits.

and the colour scheme; note that Elrond’s not wearing his imladris armour, which would’ve been easier on the design team. it’s a whole new thing.

he’s wearing gil-galad’s colours i can’t

he’s going to fight sauron wearing gil-galad’s colours and it just hurts me a lot

Review on Kip Williams’ Macbeth

I just went to watch the performance last night, which I didn’t realize until I checked my email that it was actually a preview (which was why my ticket was expensive, I had bought it in a rush before it got sold out) and that it would be the second ever live performance the cast would do. Because of this, Kip Williams himself sat with the audience to watch it.
