Scene: Exterior, day. Running DSL to DSR, with exits, a ROAD. USC, ONE WHITE TREE.

Two men, FARAMIR and ARAGORN are sitting by the TREE.

FARAMIR: So, can we go now ?

ARAGORN: No, not yet.

FARAMIR: Why not ?

ARAGORN: Because we're waiting for Frodo ...

Continue in like style for 1200 pages of text, three films, a radio series, innumerable spinoffs ...

       Bored of the rings?

       No! We had to read this crap in Engish Lit.

       Maybe Frodo's already there but invisible?

       When I was little The Hobbit was my favourite book ever. I saw a trailer for the film the other day - it looks terrible. A trilogy? they're going to ruin my childhood...

       Your childhood? You wait till you see the trailer for "Middle Earth: The Phantom Menace". Then you'll realise your future's been ruined too …

       //I saw a trailer for the film the other day - it looks terrible.// Really? I thought it looked pretty good. But I'm also a film nerd so I get excited about things like making normal sized actors appear like hobbits in moving shots.
DIYMatt, Oct 08 2012

       Eh, I got bored of that by the end of the rings. Maybe I'm just extra critical when they adapt a book I really like. Don't get me started on I Am Legend.
mitxela, Oct 08 2012

       //Don't get me started on I Am Legend// Gah! You got ME started on I Am Legend. That was the biggest piece of shit I've seen since the new version of The Day the Earth Stood Still. Well, other than the Transformers series.

       Orlando Bloom gambolling whilst slaying the oliphaunt scarred me for life... please, no more.

       TREE: Oh! I thought we were waiting for the Entwives. Boom, boom, boorrah, boom, hoom, etc, etc.

       Nice one, Centurion …

       I bunned this because I had a dog named Frodo (back when) and I always hope all my dogs will be waiting for me when I get to heaven!!
I'm also a Lord of the Rings reader / movie fan, but I still think some of it is absurdly long, so bun for that, too! +

       Only if it's written by Samuel Jackson.   

       Aragon: (with a long-suffering sigh). Golem light—bough not motherfucking break—Golem motherfucking dead. Aragorn heavy—bough break—Aragorn motherfucking alone. Whereas—   

       Golem: Golem! Golem! Golem will get an erection, Precious! He can use ring as Co -   

       Aaand so on
