Things to do while watching Lord of the Rings

  • Stand up halfway through the movie and yell loudly, "Wait…where the hell is Harry Potter?"
  • Block the entrance to the theatre while screaming, "YOU…..SHALL….NOT….. PASS!"
  • Play a drinking game where you have to take a sip every time someone says, "the Ring."
  • Point and laugh whenever someone dies.
  • Ask everyone around you if they think Gandalf went to Hogwarts.
  • Finish off every one of Elrond’s lines with "Mis..ter Ander-sonnn."
  • When Aragorn is crowned king, stand up and at the top of your lungs sing, "And I did it…. MY way…!"
  • Talk like Gollum all through the movie. At the end, bite off someone’s finger and fall down the stairs.
  • Dress up as old ladies and re-enact "The Battle of Helms Deep," Monty Python style.
  • When Denethor lights the fire, shout "Barbecue!"
  • In TTT when the Ents decide to march to war, stand up and shout, "RUN FOREST, RUN!"
  • Every time someone kills an Orc, yell: "That’s what I’m Tolkien about!" See how long it takes before you get kicked out of the theatre.
  • During a wide shot of a battle, inquire, "Where’s Waldo?"
  • Talk loudly about how you heard that there is a single frame of a nude Elf hidden somewhere in the movie.
  • Start an Orc sing-a-long.
  • Come to the premiere dressed as Frankenfurter and wander around looking terribly confused.
  • When they go in the paths of the dead, wait for a tense moment and shout, "I see dead people!"
  • Imitate what you think a conversation between Gollum, Dobby and Yoda would be like.
  • Release a jar of daddy-long-legs into the theatre during the Shelob scene.
  • Wonder out loud if Aragorn is going to run for governor of California.
  • When Shelob comes on, exclaim, "Man! Charlotte’s really let herself go!"
  • After the movie, say "Lucas could have done it better."
