I just randomly decided to make this thread to see if anyone else finds Aragorn as awesome as I do. Might be a lame idea, but who knows? I figured Britney Spears has a thread so why not Aragorn? (No offense to Britney fans!:p) So, yeah. That's it. :o

Aragorn deserves a thread way more than Britney does.

I've been known to ask someones opinion with "What say you?!" Aragorn style. :D

Oooh I love that line :cln:

I'm a fan of Aragorn. He totally smolders on-screen, not to mention the strength in his character :hug:

Yup. I totally agree. Aragorn=much cooler than Britney. And much more deserving of fans/admirers. Oh, and the "What say you?!" thing is AWESOME! That's definately one of his best lines. :tmb: (P.S. Thanks for the support!)

Hee hee. Yeah he does! And his character is truly noble. It's the best thing about him. His strong sense of honor and right vs. wrong is truly admirable.

I totally agree with that and I think Viggo Mortensen was the perfect choice for the role.

I love how delicately he handles the shards of Narsil when Borimir acts like a goon and drops them.

i think so, too.

i don't think he's hot, per se, but he's an elegant dude.

I'm just curious, do you mean the actor and not the character himself? I'm just asking because the bolded part makes it sound as such.

I think Viggo Mortensen did a great job in portraying Aragorn. He had that humble atmosphere around him, and I think it suited the personality of a great man who'd lost contact with his kingly roots. Deep down he knew who and what he was, but he was also marked by his shadowed identity.

yeah , but legolas is slightly better in gameplay , I mean he moves faster and has 2 swords , I like Aragorn a lot , and I thing Viggo was made for the job!
between Viggo and Jugh Jackman I have a tough choice to pick :o

Whoa! I go offline for a bit and the thread explodes! :D It makes me really happy that so many people appreciate Aragorn. He's one of my all time favorite characters. And I love Viggo Mortensen too. He's a fantastic actor and his portrayal of Aragorn is spot on its nigh miraculous. He doesn't even have to say anything, sometimes you can just look at his face and know exactly what his character is feeling.

Oh! A good example of this is this scene from the extended edition of the Two Towers:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xKiIbhg4IqQ

(sorry, I don't know how to embed a vid so I just pasted a link)

I love how handles looking embarrased. He doesn't overdo it, but you still know that he's not all that thrilled to be taking about his age. Also, the soup part is pretty cute. :tmb:

I went through IMDB again and just discovered this little film it;s about Aragorn's sword, is it from some bonus material from the LOTR DVD?

Of course you can! All Aragorn/LOTR related discussion is welcome in any form, including artwork. I love art and artistic people and I totally appreciate people sharing their work. So, yeah. Feel free! :D


@irjudd: No, I've never heard that band before, but watching that vid, they seem interesting. Not really my type of music, but their lyrics are pretty cool. I like the orchestral-ness and the end of the vid was pretty good. Nice find. :)

Yay! Nice pics, Lonely Istari. And thanks for sharing your work. :) I like the detail you put into Aragorn's clothing by including the tear in his right sleeve and the Evenstar around his neck. Nice touch. Oh, and your Frodo is awesome too. That is the classic Frodo face. He looks like that in basically every scene of the movie and its awesome that you were able to capture that expression. Great job! :D

Thank you!! :hug: I love trying to get people's expressions down and Elijah Wood has such an expressive face. (His eyes!!! wow!) But you're right, he does have that expression for about 90% of the films. :D

I love Aragorn. :D
