Every damned time.

Every damned time I watch Theoden die, I cry like a baby. LWC said to me in the theater, "Didn't you know he was gonna die?" I just watched ROTK on TNT, complete with commercials for Wendy's and Target, and I still cried.

He reminds me of my Dad. Bernard Hill even looks like him, and my Dad's name was Bernard. All the Rohan scenes from the movie make me unbearably sad. Like Theoden and the Rohirrim marching to certain doom, my father lost his battle with cancer in 1965 at the age of 50. Somehow, my brain patches together an allegory there and it makes me sad. It's not a bad sad, though. Not really.

Jesus, I spill my guts about personal issues and I get an ad for dick trouble. That spambot is not reading for content.

Well, I for one thought Bernard did the best acting job of the three films. With Ian holm second.
