Gollum

  1. Benedict Cumberbatch Impersonates Jar Jar Binks, Millions Cry Out In Terror and are Suddenly Silenced

    Imagine if Smaug sounded like this.

    You know, I'd always pictured Benedict Cumberbatch playing Grand Admiral Thrawn from Heir to the Empire. Never once did I imagine him as Jar Jar Binks. I'm sort of wishing I could go back to that simpler time, now.

  2. Woo Your Nerdy Valentine By Comparing Yourself To Gollum, Because That’ll Work

    You know what the saddest part is? This would totally work on me.

    Listen, we know that Gollum is a disgusting and desperate creature whose only redeeming quality is the fact that he knows how disgusting and desperate he is. But just look at his little bow tie in this Valentine's Day Card! Awww, I can't stay mad at you, little buddy!

    My Precious!

    We’re looking for the rightful owner of the suspected stolen ring, already had to turn this man away: pic.twitter.com/2pC3rAx6Af

    — Solihull Police (@SolihullPolice) January 13, 2014 Police from Solihull, West Midlands in the UK took extreme measures recently while trying to find a missing ring - they used a nerd reference. But they didn't stop there, they threw in some puns too. "We apologise for the ‘Ring’ puns today, it’s difficult to break the hobbit."

  7. Gollum Does A Lord of the Rings Rendition Of Donnie Darko’s Mad World

    My Precious!

    Originally recorded by Tears for Fears, "Mad World" was covered by Michael Andrews and Gary Jules for the movie Donnie Darko. Here's Gollum singing it. But it's not just a cover, it's Gollum singing about stuff that happens in Lord of the Rings to the tune of the song. Pretty creative if you ask me. But it's not the first time! You may remember the same guy doing a song from Les Misérables. But what is up with the dude in the background?

  8. Gollum Mourns the Loss of His Precious By Singing “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Misérables. Like You Do. [VIDEO]

    My Precious!

    It took me a few seconds to get into YouTube user Ijameswalters, as Gollum, singing "I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Misérables. But then he changed the "I"s to "we"s and the lyrics started mentioning nasty Hobbitses, and by 3:20 I'd completely lost it.

  10. Physics Lets Us Know How Many Fish Gollum Needs to Live, We Now Sleep Easier at Night

    One of the great pastimes of geekdom is adding some degree of factual feasibility to works of fantasy in all its forms. With the release of The Hobbit this Friday, audiences everywhere will be reunited with a much younger, more energetic Gollum than the one they've come to know in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. But a haunting question that fans have tried to wrap their heads around for years is how has Gollum managed to be so long lived in spite of the fact he dwelled within the perpetual darkness of the Misty Mountains, dining purely on fish. Using assumptions on Hobbit physiology and his working knowledge of Gollum's subterranean home, Rhett Allain -- an associate professor of physics at the Southeastern Louisiana University -- has crunched the numbers and deduced how many fish the little guy needs to eat to function. The number may shock you -- if you actually care about this sort of thing, of course.

  12. Giant Gollum Statue’s Only Wish is to Catch a Fish, So Juicy Sweeeeet!

    My Precious!

    This is the most wonderfully random statue I have ever seen. It's not weird at all that the airport in Wellington, New Zealand would be home to a Lord of the Rings statue in the first place… but a ginormous Gollum coming out of the wall and reaching across the room for a similarly oversized fish? That's unexpected. And awesome. And also kind of creepy. The 13m statue was created by Weta as a promotion for The Hobbit (naturally), but I for one will be very disappointed if it gets taken down after the first movie is out. Or all three movies. Or ever. I want people to fly into the Wellington airport 500 years from now and wonder what we were all on in the 21st century. Hint the jump for more creepy wonderment.

  14. Thank You, Andy Serkis, For Allowing Us To Hear Gollum Say The F-Word

    My Precious!

    Andy Serkis has done a remarkable job portraying Gollum in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings universe and has made quite the name for himself in motion-capture roles. There's even been campaigns to get him nominated for an Academy Award. But while there are countless internet videos and memes making Gollum do or say very un-Gollum-like things, if you really want to get the job done, go directly to the source. At The Hobbit panel at Comic-Con, moderator Chris Hardwick asked the actor, after a very heart-felt speech, if he would say something in the Gollum voice. So he did. And it just happened to include a curse word. THE word. The "F dash, dash, dash" word. Give it a listen yourself (fast-foward to 22:40 if it doesn't start where it should), and if you're so inclined, watch the whole video for some great moments with the cast and crew. (via io9)

  15. Good Morning! Rhys Ifans Will Do His Lizard Voice For You Now! [Video]

    For A More Civilized Age

    Get More: Movie Trailers, Movies Blog

    Have you ever wondered what Gollum would sound like if he was about 12 feet tall and muscularly large? Then you might get your chance, because that's what the Lizard might sound like in The Amazing Spider-Man, as Rhys Ifans revealed in an interview with MTV News. I think Movieline put it best when they said it sounded like "a screamo Gollum on steroids." Don't try this at home, unless you have soothing throat lozenges readily available. (via Movieline)

    And here is the Man of Steel (Henry Cavill), on the set of Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, giving us a very good look at his re-jiggered costume, which does not include the red underpants. So, what do you think? Too crotchy? Not crotchy enough? More pics at Coventry Telegraph.

  17. Gollum Makes Appearance as Wedding Ring-Bearer, Disgusts Reality Show Participants [Video]

    Together At Last

    Normally we would not abide any show that pits women against each other for the "most glorious honeymoon," but this...This is like some bizarre anthropological experiment of what happens when extreme non-geeks are exposed to the geek universe. Basically, this groom decided to hire someone to play Gollum at his wedding. As his ring bearer. Which we think is the coolest idea ever, but maybe he forgot that his fiance is the type to sign them up for a show like Four Weddings, and that her fellow contestants might not get the joke. In fact, it's been a while since I saw a group of people looking more aghast and disgusted at wedding proceedings. Also, I'm still wondering, would the same reaction be seen at one of those Harry Potter weddings I'm still craving? Or does it only apply to ring-hungry "gargoyle"-creatures? (via Blastr)

  19. Mythbuster Adam Savage Sings “I Will Survive”… As Gollum [Video]

    Sometimes things just come together perfectly, and it's like an episode of Blue's Clues gone absolutely, perfectly right. Well, let's see, Blue, do you want to put the Adam Savage on top of the Gollum then make both listen to "I will survive? Choir of children: "Noooooo!" Well, should we have Gollum and Adam Savage fight while "I Will Surive" plays in the background? Choir of children: "Noooooo but that would be awesoooome!" Should we have Adam Savage sing "I will Survive" in the voice of Gollum to a crowded room? Choir of children: "Yeeeeees!" Good, because that's just what happened:
