Faramir is one of those characters I really loved. He was just trying to get out of his brother’s shadow and prove that he was just as good as Boromir. They were both their own person. I felt so bad for him when his father didn’t care if he lived or not during the attacks on the castle.
In The Hobbit book and movies Fili and Kili are my favorites along with Thorin. I liked Bilbo as well but those three are the ones I like to watch on screen. Fili was the nephew of Thorin. He was meant to be king of Erebor one day. He and his brother followed Thorin to Erebor to take it back. The one thing I didn’t like about the book or the movies was that he and his brother died at a young age even though they were considered adults in dwarven culture.
Lastly, one of my other faves is Frodo. He is cute for a hobbit. The decisions he had to make weren’t easy ones. As a fan you could see that the ring was starting to draw him in faster than it did Bilbo. I think the reason for that is that he was so young and hadn’t really lived at that point like Bilbo had. Bilbo was older than Frodo when he found the ring. You could see in The Hobbit how it had started to work on Bilbo and try to draw him in to control him. You could see basically from the beginning the toll it was taking on Frodo. I believe Sam saw the change faster than the others did. I believe the friendship of those people are what kept him focused enough to get to Mt. Doom and destroy the ring.
Look forward to reading your comments. 🙂
