Well, my net went bonkers, so I did what any discerning Temper would: I watched the LOTR movies in DVD So, anyway, I was basically going nuts on the fight scenes (Legolas killing off that big elephant thingy and all the riders alone, just so imba) and nearly pulling my hair out every time Frodo shows up. The useless lump of a hobbit is, well, useless. Let me enumerate: 1. all he's good at is cowering, whimpering (getting stabbed by ringwraiths??) etc 2. he trusts smeagle/gollum more than sam 3. dude's a coward (the other 3 Hobbits actually know how to fight for themselves, Frodo gets smothered by this big spider thing and that's the only real time he fights anything) 4. he actually tries to make off with the ring (good thing his finger got bitten off, serves him right) Seriously, Gandalf was more useful dead than Frodo was when he was alive. Why Tolkien would make such a dbag/weakling/half-ass idiotic coward one of his main characters is beyond me.
