Merry and Pippin:
Why? These two hobbits are pretty much inseparable. They are not only pretty much the only funny persons in the movie, but they will stick with one to the end even when they don’t know what they’re getting themselves into. :) They love adventure, risk, and helping others. One can’t ask for better companions on a perilous journey.
Spotlight scene: Setting off the dragon firework. (One of my favorite scenes in the whole movie! ;)
Why? He is the most awesome of all the hobbits by far and is the very personification of loyal friendship. Without him, Frodo never would have made it to the mountain, let alone gotten the strength to destroy the ring.
Spotlight scene: When he’s baking potatoes for Frodo. (Another favorite scene of mine…and one that I quote a lot, like whenever we have potatoes for dinner. :P)
Why? Ok, so Frodo is also awesome. And really good at dying. :P I think that the actor got that part in Lord of the Rings because he was so good at dying. I mean, who can actually foam at the mouth at will? Not me! He followed Gandalf’s instructions and was the only one who had compassion for Gollum. A good reminder to us to exercise compassion on unbelievers.
Spotlight scene: When he realizes what he almost did after he destroys the ring.
Why? You don’t get much of his personality in Lord of the Rings, but since I’ve read The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings trilogy, I have a better idea of what he’s like. He has a funny sense of humor, enjoys comfort, but will go on adventures if he has too. He and Gandalf work best together, and even though he hold Gandalf in awe, they are still good friends.
Spotlight scene: His speech. (Which is totally AWESOME! I love it more every time I read/watch it! :P)Part Two...coming soon! :) (I hope... :P)
