Sorry to answer so late, but about Elronds apearence, it does not negate anything. The Fellowship had to go through all those obstacles, because of Saruman. After Saruman's defeat, the path between Rivendell and Rohan was clear, so going through Moria for example, was no longer necessary. And if you remember what happened in the book, well Aragorn IS visited from Rivendell and does receive a gift, but the visitors are his rangers instead of Elrond, and the gift is a flag instead of the sword which he already had. Some aspects of the film had a better effect then the in the book. Although I haven't liked many aspects myself: like no Glorfindel, or Merry acts like a six years old (he was supposed to be some sort of a landlord by then, and instead, he steals vegetables), Tom Bombadil wasn't in either, but he was supposed to represent either the reader or the author, and this was a film, not a book so his presence is unnecessary.I guess then that it is Elrond's particular appearance that I felt was a bit 'cheesy'. If it had to be done, I'd probably feel it better that at least an embassador of Elrond be the one to take the sword to Aragorn. I guess my biggest gripe is in almost trivialising the geography of Middle-earth in the movie, but that could never be any other way. It's hard to get a feel for the scope of the land in this visual medium. However, by having Elrond suddenly pop out of nowhere I think it ruined the strength of Anduril, the symbolism -- sort of like 'whoops, forgot to give you this earlier son, sorry!'. That's just my take on it, I'm sure yours' is different, and no less valid for it.

Beautiful.... But yeah, about the cropped head.... She might be a bit horse-faced, but that's cool... Lol, she prolly was! The colour theme's cool, but she looks like she about to puke or faint.... Either one.

Beautiful. She has a very Eowyn look on her face. Cold and fair. Her hair is so pretty...
Her lips may be a bit too grey, and her chin a bit too long and pointed, but no matter. That is only my opinion, anyway. It's very good!

Eowyn is my favorite character from LOTR, and you captured her very well. Stoic and pretty but not *too* feminine.

I love how she’s got this Viking/Saxon look to her features. I always compared the people of Rohan and their culture to the Vikings or the Saxons, and as well, I’ve always seen the people and culture of Gondor reminding me of Medieval Rome or Constantinople when it was ruled by Justianian and Theodora. I’m really impressed.
