The Great Eye Game

Since the crossword puzzle might have been geared a little more toward people who've read the books rather than those who have only seen the movies, here's a game skewed the opposite way!  If you haven't seen Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy, I'm afraid you won't guess these.  They are all from those three movies, not from The Hobbit, okay?  Don't want to confuse anyone.

I may have gotten a little carried away with these... but I kept thinking, "Oh, I can't leave so-and-so out!  And I can't leave what's-her-name out!"  I promise you that these are all characters that have lines and names and are in more than one scene -- I didn't do anyone obscure like Theodred or Sam's Gaffer.


Also, I do not use any character more than once... except one.  That character looks vastly different in various sections of the trilogy, and goes by different names, and I'm going to stop here because you already know who I'm talking about, I'm sure.

Post your guesses in the comments below.  This is on the honor system -- no cheating and peeking to see what other people guessed ahead of you!  Might want to grab a piece of paper to write your guesses down on so you don't have to keep scrolling up and down.  I'll post the answers on Friday.

    1. I couldn't make a game and call it the "Great Eye Game" and not have the Great Eye in it, could I? And you can thank my hubby for the inclusion of Treebeard, because he insisted it would hilarious -- he was clearly right, of course.

      Anyway, 27 points to you! Well done! And yes, I'm always like, why is that name underlined? I spelled it correctly! :-D
