“If You Want Him…”



“…then come and claim him!”

So says Liv Tyler as Arwen in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. This, of course, is in the scene where Arwen whisks a wounded Frodo away to find healing at Rivendell. The ring wraiths give chase and she challenges them at the river. Immediately after she gets to the other side, she calls on the power of the river, and it comes crashing down on the wraiths! Very cool!

What’s that got to do with anything important tonight? Not very much, except that as I watched it on TV, I was reminded that it is one of my favorite movie lines of all time! (Not to mention that you need to think of that Roy Orbison “Oh, Pretty Woman” throat noise whenever Arwen makes an appearance!) Sorry…
