Gimli is Underrated and You Should All Love Him

So, when I decided to do the two-star assignment “Favorite Movie Quotes”, I told myself¬†I will not do another Lord of the Rings quote. I will not do another Lord of the Rings quote. I will not do another Lord of the Rings quote.¬†

I lied, guys. I did another Lord of the Rings quote.

In particular, a Gimli quote because he is criminally underrated and oft-ignored in the face of heartthrobs Legolas and Aragorn. I used PhotoDirector 5 to get the blue tint- I’ve discovered edit function! And the watermark function! The text is size 30 Monotype Cursive.

I chose this quote because it’s typical Gimli- bold, brash, and unafraid to fight. I dunno, I just love the fact that he’s just discovered this entire city has been slaughtered, his friends and family dead, and he channels all his grief into ass-kicking rage.

This picture was selected via google images- thanks, youtube.com! It’s a screenshot from the Battle of Helm’s Deep (or Battle of the Hornburg, if it’s in the books) when Gimli and Legolas are talking right before the battle. Again, the battle seems hopeless, but Gimli and his elf bestie/life partner are taking time to laugh and enjoy what might be the last night of their lives. There’s something to be said for that.
