    I've always felt like this scene should totally not have worked but I've never not gotten chills watching it.

    I don't think Gollum has even been mentioned yet?

    I can do a pretty good Gollum impression actually.

    I need to hear this. I've tried when I was drunk once.

    When I was in high school I had an amazing art teacher who liked to prank call the other teachers in the building in his free time (each classroom had a room phone). He often had me do the impression over the phone, asking the teachers where they had hidden the precious because we knew they stoles it from us and we wants it.

    Come to think of it, the best part of this was later when my friends would approach me asking if I had called one of their teachers again. They said they could always tell it was me because either a.) the teacher was familiar enough with the series and would play along with something like "Oh hello again, Smeagol, what can I do for your today?" or b.) they would be completely unfamiliar with it, pick up the phone and almost immediately look exasperated like "I don't have what you want, I don't know what you're talking about."

    Fun fact, the famous Gollum/Smeagol discussion from The Two Towers was written on the spot and directed without Peter Jackson's knowledge.

    We were just talkin' bout the Jesus. Prestigious

    What was Lurtz seeking to gain by doing that?

    Oh Lurtz... you know he's actually an iconic figure in some fetishy circles.

    I'm from New York. No, not the city.

    I've actually had plans to get the One Ring inscription tattooed on my forearm. Tolkien was the main inspiration behind my love of languages and linguistics so I figured the ring would be a nice way to meld my love of fantasy, LotR and linguistics.
