MOST QUOTABLE MOVIE EVER
this film though ffs
"Have fun storming the castle, boys!"
This is true love, do you think it happens everyday?
Other lands are not my concern. The fortunes of the world will rise and fall, but here in this kingdom,
we will endure.
#can we talk about just how Thingol this attitude is?#That could have come straight from Thingol’s own mouth#Thranduil growing up admiring Thingol#thinking of him like an older family member and looking up to him in that way#but also looking up to him like a celebrity or well#like the great king he was#he models his kingdom and his policies after him#ugh I’m sorry just Thranduil hero worshiping Thingol is one of my favorite things#Thranduil#hobbit movie
Thranduil as Thingol in the Third Age
Thranduil trying to hold on to the last remnants of his homeland
Thranduil as an echo of the great Elf Lords of the past, knowing himself to be smaller and lesser than they but standing tall in their shadow nonetheless
and in awful inversion of history, he does indeed lose his son to a mortal lover… but in this story his son does not relinquish eternity but instead escapes to the west while his father remains behind; where Thingol was slain by dwarves and his daughter lost to the history of Men, Thranduil loses his son to the future of a dwarf and lives on past all record in the dwindling twilight of the fading of the elves
if you doubt me, ask this: Frodo took Arwen’s place on the ship; Bilbo and Sam took the places of Elladan and Elrohir. Whose place, then, did Gimli take?
