Random LOTR moment: Elrond's sheer cool-ness!

"I was there when the strength of men failed....I was there THREE THOUSAND YEARS ago!!!"......Man, remember those 'immortal words' from the Fellowship of the Ring (1st movie from the LOTR trilogy)? Elrond is way cool. Hugo Weaving did a splendid job playing the pointy-eared being from Middle earth. I absolutely loved the opening scene of the movie i.e. where they showed the last great battle of Middle earth, battle between orcs and men/elves, Isildur cutting Sauron's fingers off...etc.

The scene was elaborated during a flashback sequence by Elrond in Rivendell. He described that he remembered (an event which took place a good ol' three thousand years ago) clearly how Isildur (son of King Elendil) fell into the 'dark side' aka seduced by the 'one ring' (which he gathered from Sauron's ashes)...which resulted in him keeping the ring to which he's supposed to have thrown into the hot-molten lava of Mount Doom.

Elrond's cool because....(a) he does not suffer from memory lapse (seems to recall details from 3 millenium ago!); (b) he doesn't look a day over a thousand years; and (c) Hugo Weaving gave us 'Agent Smith' fans something to look forward to when watching the LOTR trilogy!

Elrond/Hugo Weaving......we salute you......schwing!!!
