Typical. I bet Tolkien knew that they would be some of the most popular characters and decided, "YEA Ima gonna mess wit' u peeps!!" ...only not in those words...
IKR!! And they didn't exactly get a good send-off. it was just, "they died in the battle." I was there like," ...that's it?...that's all they get?!"
If I don't cry in the film, I will be disappointed!
Happy New Year to u too
