LOTR Gollum quote

I remember the first time I've seen the movies (never read the books.) Even if I were to watch one of the movies this instant, I would picture Gollum; not many people give him recognition. The only reason I remember him is because of the quote he is famous for. You guessed right "My precious..." Lol, I still say that sometimes.

Gollum plays a very important part in Tolkien's world. Not only does he take Frodo and Sam to Mordor, but he has an older affair with the Ring. You will see how the Ring passes from Gollum to Bilbo in "The Hobbit" movie, which will appear in 2011, if I remember correctly. That's also when some of Gollum's lines will make sense (the lines he's saying at the forbidden pool when Faramir captures him). Even Gandalf underlines Gollum's importance when he's talking to Frodo in Moria. He has many memorable lines that I always remember with pleasure ("Spoiling good fish! Give it to us raw and wriggling!" or "Come hobbitses, come! Smeagol shows the way!", etc...).

That's also one of the best! LoL, I like how he says hobbitses. When I was a kid my father used to quote lines from the book, as he really enjoyed the stories. He would often use the line "My Precious" and it was funny to us. Once he had this bug in his hand that we found in the house that no one wanted to touch. He just picked it up and brought it to his face and pretended to stare in it's eyes, then all of a sudden he quickly cupped it in his hands brought it to his chest and said in one of his weird voices "My Preeeeciiouussss" LoL. I'm laughing just remembering. I thought it was so cool when the movies came out because I used to hear so much of about it from my father, I even seen the cartoon. :D

I've only seen the 1977 "Hobbit" cartoon, right after reading the book. I decided I don't want to see the "Lord of the Rings" cartoon because I guess I'll be disappointed by the huge difference between the cartoon and the movies (I haven't read the books just yet - I'm reading the "Silmarillion" right now).

Yes that's the cartoon I meant. Where they go and get Bilbo baggins and they all go off on quest. It's been so long since I seen it. But I remember he meets golum and there are giant spiders and the sword sting. I think I want to watch it again now, I'll have to dig up the VCR and the tape. LoL.

I've always thought that Tolkien wrote enough back-story for a ten season TV series.I'd love to see more Lord of the Rings.it's my all time favorite fantasy movie.I'm hoping that when "the Hobbit"comes out,that it will be just as good as the original trilogy.

Same here, I like fantasy movies. That would be awesome if they made a TV series of LOTR. I would definitely tune in to watch it, I like your TV show idea.

I don't see that happening because it would need to large a budget to film. Also, they wouldn't be able to milk it until it collapsed because there was only so much storyline that Tolkien wrote. AND... ...the fans would go nuts (and not in a good way).

Hehe, maybe your right. I could still hope for a TV series though. ^^

The one word that really stuck to me was "MURDERER!". This was when his two selves, Gollum and Smeagol were arguing in the movie. I can't ever forget that scene, because it seemed so comical.

I can see how you would find that scene comical.
