Galadriel: Reply to Lee C.
We should look on the bright side whenever possible,
considering that turning Tolkien's into popular movies is a seemingly impossible task.
Cate Blanchett as Galadrial is an inspired choice. Pam Anderson? She'd never agree to move
to New Zealand for a year, so that wouldn't happen.
Now, Bo Derek as Galadriel, that'd be something. Beautiful, slightly aging, sheer
see-through gown, already comes with slightly pointy ears.
And consider who might have been cast as Eowyn: Meg Ryan? Liv Tyler? Kate Moss?
So, although the plot may be inscrutible - I was half-way through the second book before
someone told me that Sauron and Saruman were different characters - the casting and
scenery looks good. 2 out of 3.
