celebrating the simple life

♥ assalamualaikum 

Haritu aku tengok video How it Should Have Ended pasal LOTR. If you really know me then you know lah how a die hard fan i am of that movies. I even ordered a custom made LOTR totes bag, gila fandom betul. Tapi comel la beg tu..hehe Jadi bila orang kata cerita tu stupid dan tak make sense....eh eh suka hati je. Rase nak marah. But then nak emo pasal movie kenapa kan? Aku pun fikir dan fikir dan makin aku fikir makin aku suka cerita ni.

Taddaa! :D

Why it made sense to me

1. Hobbits

This is a story about the little things, the little people. That is why the main characters are hobbits. Hobbits are simple creature. They love nature and foods and cigars and they live far from civilization because they love the simpleness of their life style. Hobbits are a symbol or harmonious living, people who are one with nature. Although Hobbits don't really exist, but there are people who live like them. They are minorities, small in numbers and often seems insignificant to others. This is a story about them. 

" Even the smallest person can change the course of the future. "

2. The dark lord

Sauron for me is a symbol of greed. As far as i know, Tolkien wrote these books during world war and i think the dark lord represent the greed of certain leaders who got carried away by the wave of industrialization. Orcs/Urukhai represent people who used to be wise, had a normal life but are tortured and forced to follow their leader until the greed and hate somehow become part of them too and they became tools.

3. The fellowship

The fellowship consist of all kind of creatures which are Elf, Human, Wizard, Dwarf and Hobbit who uncommonly works together and some often are enemies. These people represent the diversity of human race. We have our differences: Our culture, language, how we live, what we strive for and our beliefs are not always similar. We love and hate different things and we argue among ourselves. But when our world is in danger, we have the strength to look over our differences and become friends. We protect each other. Although the fellowship is a very small group of people, but in reality, only a small group of different people are willing to overcome hate and fight for the truth.

" A day may come when the courage of man fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bond of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down. But it is not this day, this day we fight. "

There are many ways of how the Ring could end up in Mount Doom. But i love how the story focused on the hardship of people who believes, how it keep on reminding us about the power of hope and the strength of men. Those who seems so insignificant..so small..could carry the burden and the fate of the whole world. But without the help of friends, they  may not be able to achieve anything. Although it might not be the actual thoughts of Tolkien while he was writing it, but i like to think that it is. I think its beautiful.
