Okay, there's lots of Legolas fans and Haldir fans on here, so I was just wondering...do more of us like Haldir, or Legolas? (BTW: if you don't like either one, please just choose the lesser of two "evils". Thanks! ;) )

I like Legolas better but only because we got to know him really well. Maybe if Tolkien (or even PJ) had spent more time on Haldir I'd like him more...

Yes, I like Legolas better as well...but the Haldir lovers will probably find this poll eventually.

And voting for one doesn't mean you dislike the other. It just means you like that character better. I never did like those "character wars." :lol:

I'm sorry but I love Legolas. Haldir is great and I cried when he died but I love Legolas/Orlando Bloom way too much LOL

Haldir didn't die, my dear... have you read the book?

I think that this is an unfair question. It's a bit unjust to title this topic 'Who is better?'. It's like that infamous question 'Who was the real hero in tLotR?' There's no just answer... everyone will say something different, and it's not a straight fact that either one of them is better than the other. It's unfair because Haldir was found only in 1.5 chapter of the book, whereas Legolas was found throughout the entire thing. It's also unfair because Haldir had no written history about him, no physical descriptions... nothing. All we could admire him for is his kind and generous way he treated the Fellowship as he led them through the Elves' forest.

His attitude and actions really caught my eye as something respectable, so I vote Haldir as my favourite.

Maybe the title of this thread ought to be changed to something like 'Which do you like better? Legolas or Haldir?' to make it sound more of a personal opinion rather than a blunt fact.

:happy:

I'm sorry...I totally agree with everything you said. I was just in a hurry when I made the title, but really I did mean which is your favorite. Is it possible to change titles? If it is, I don't know how... :(

Yes, I know Haldir didn't die. I was speaking specifically of the movie. I still think it was pretty messed up though...

I personally vote for Haldir. I love the way he treats the fellowship in the book, and he is a true leader in the film. Unfortunately he died. I bawled my eyes out, and still do. But that's just me...

Well, I ended up voting for Legolas. Mostly, I like him better because we know more about him. With so little that we know about Haldir, I can't really compare him to Legolas--he's a cool character, but there's just a lot more character development for Legolas, since he was in the books more.

Hmm...there are currently more Legolas votes. I was expecting Haldir to have more.

Really? I'd say Legolas has a much larger fanbase than Haldir.

I'd have to say Legolas, as we see more of him through out the LotR books. Elves are intriguing characters in general, but Legolas' stands out. He has some very good quotes and sings many songs of old. Not to mention, he can stand upon the snow without sinking in! :P

I like Haldir. He has this haughty look to him that is kinda attractive. I love your banner Laurel. Did you draw Snape?

I am agreeing with those that have voted for Haldir. From what we have learned of Haldir he seems to have been one of those characters that had not had as much of a role as he should have had in the books.

Besides this Legolas has not been one of the characters have been as appealing as the others. Though that is not to say that he had no appeal at all but I have to say that he did not have much for me as I read through the books and in the films they ruined him. But that is an entirely different topic. :P
