i dunno, i'm just trying to think if a topic, and this one seams like a good one.
my dad and i always argue about the books versus the movies. my dad is a complete tolkien purist, and, altohuh he likes the detail and scenery of the films, he hates the writers for what they changed. right now, the small issue of faramir is our main topic.
he says that tolkiens version was better. faramir resisted the ring completely because he was so unlike boromir. he says it destroys a lot of his character, having him temporarily embrace the power of the ring.
well, i am not the purist of the family. i love the books, but i feel that the movies give them a certain feeling that was sometimes lacking. another thing i loved was the way they did boromir. i found it hard to believe in the books that he could completely resist the ring. i couldn't believe it when he said he would toss the ring aside if he found it. only tom bombadil could do that. sam could also, to an extent, because of his simplicity. but i digress.
the point is, i don't think faramir would be able to resist the ring just like that. ::snaps fingers::. i'm in favor of the movie version in that sense. what do you think?
::scrolls up:: wow, i'm boring...-__-;;;
