Cinematic Knowledge: The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Rings

“You offer it to me freely...?”
“I do not deny that my heart has greatly desired this.”

“In place of the Dark Lord, you would have a Queen, not dark, but beautiful and terrible as the Dawn. Treacherous as the Sea! Stronger than the foundations of the earth...all shall love me and despair!”

“I pass the test...”

“I will diminish and go into the west and remain Galadriel.”

Lessons Learned: Galadriel is one scary Elf Queen (and incidentally one of the the strongest characters in the series).
Cate Blanchett is awesome and yet completely scary.
(She's signed up for The Hobbit, can't deny that makes me happy.)

Love, love, love this scene. Galadriel is definitely one of the strongest in the series and Cate is just amazing.

That's a great scene and I'm delighted to see she's appearing in the Hobbit... even if I'm a little curious as to exactly how they'll work her in.

robert i know, right? she turns up for a few moments and yet she's just so strong.

darren i figure they'll use her narration at the very least. who can deny that her narration made the opening all the more brilliant in the first installment?
