    I'm surprised this isn't a heavy topic here. He does remind me of characters from old Chinese movies (you know the ones where they sail through the air while wearing pastel-colored dresses), the way he was dressed and his hair --- so magnificently done!

    I love the way Thranduil was potrayed - Lee Pace did a good job. Although the last bit in BoFA was really bordering on stupid (his speech to Legolas). I know they were trying to tie the stories together, but that was ridiculous since the timeline shows Aragorn being only 10 years old at the time of the Battle. He would not use the name Strider in another 15 years! LOL! So, that was really a bust. However, Lee Pace's Thranduil was well played. I think he really embodies what Elves should be like.

    Of course, these are MY opinions. :D

    I liked the smoothness and slight coolness of his speech, really elven.

    Yes... actually, he can be a good replacement for Alan Rickman's Snape - if they were to write a younger version of that character. The depth of his voice ... and his cold and distant and regal demeanor - it's breathtaking at times. He's a good actor - Lee Pace. I loved his film the Fall.

    I would certainly love to see that myself! I'll have to see The Fall.
