I haven't seen the movies yet, just trailers. But if she played like she was able to do in Lost, she made probably something good for the character.
And to see Elves only at the end for the battle, or during their drinking, no thank you :psycho:

Naw, not the Elves.  Well that was how Bilbo got the keys to free the party of Dwarves while in Elronds castle dungeon.  The Elf watch were sitting round a table drinking wine.   So, Bilbo freed the empty barrels for the Bargeman to pickup but these ones had Dwarves in them.  Tada!  Their river escape!   Chase ensues and Tauriel goes after, to look after her sweetie Dwarf.  Naturally Orlando Blooms character shows up to steer her back, but ends up going with also.  Oops, there's the show!  Ha!   Hope you enjoyed the ride to Laketown.  Oh that darn dragon woke up.  Gee.  And Bilbo makes it right to the middle of that problem too!  That Hobbit sure gets around don't he?!
But it's the DWARVES that always seem to be drinking!  Ha!

Fun with Candy Canes!

Eh, woke up with a fever this morning. Felt like burning mush. Had to get ready to go to the grocery store because haven't been for two weeks :smile: Got home and every freeking bone in my body hurt - a lot. Rest? What's that? :odd: Tomorrow and the rest of tonight. Rest.



You listen like I listen.....  HEYYYYY....What did ya sayyyyyy......  But sometimes you gotta do things when you feel best....so I won't lecture you to hard.   

Don't know if you remember those silly Candy Canes in the pics I posted in FB showing the decorations.  They were actually 98 cents each but I didn't want all to think that Lorna was Cheap....she is mind you....but didn't want you to think that way  :java:   Anyway....Guess when you're temps get to minus 22 at night, plastic turns brittle LOLOL

You bet she did! Just as good as Lost :winks:

Before the Hobbit movies, I saw her in Real Steel.   THEN I looked at a couple of those Lost episodes.  They should have been lost.  Reality TV my butt!   Crap shows.   She was the only redeeming point in it.   
Ah, she is also in Ant Man, with Michael Douglas playing her characters Father.   Pretty good movie with a new super-anti-hero!  It didn't get much publicity so box office was flat.  But it really is a nice production, lots of cool effects and a good story.   
I still loved her as Tauriel.   She and Aidan Turner turned in very believable performances in developing their all too brief relationship as Tauriel the Sylvan Elf falling for the Dwarf Kili.  It was a hard time, one of danger and trouble all  around, and it erupted into the Battle of the Five Armies.  And there, when Kili dies, the Elf King did NOT call her down about True Love.  But he had also lost the Love of his Life.   Tear jerker!   ALL the performances in these movies were good, they felt real and were very enjoyable.   And, how'd y'all like Benedict Cumberbatch as SMAUG the Fire Dragon eh?!  Cool huh!  I still recall Tauriel jumping and flying through the air, shooting arrows, dodging blows, slashing with her Elvish Rapier, throwing her daggers, shooting more arrows, and all while seeming to be everywhere at once, earning Legolas praise!   Great job!   
I also loved Kate Blanchette as Galadriel, the Lady of the Wood.  She was so great for that part!   She was so consistent with it through all the films too.  Sigh.  !!!  heh heh!

I had no choice - or don't go to the store for the rest of the week. See, no choice.

I think I remember them. Yup, I bet they DO get brittle!

LOST was absolutely not a reality tv show. It was a drama and it was very good really...until the end. They sort of flubbed the end, imo. Oh, that's right - you don't like whatshisname, the producer. Really, it was a very complex story and if you weren't watching it all along it didn't make much sense, because you didn't really know what was going on.


SMAUG is the most awesome thing in that movie!!! Spinning into the heavens covered in gold! Splendid!!!
