      I hadn’t seen The Matrix when I saw LOTR at the cinema, so I didn’t have that problem.  I had not seen many of the actors before – except for Gandalf and Saruman, of course.  And they have both been in LOTS of things. 


      I wonder if your perception of Weaving as Elrond was coloured by a single major role as Agent Smith?  Going in the other direction, I didn’t see Elrond wearing sunglasses and a suit when I did eventually see The Matrix.  All these people are only actors – and there is no shortage of actors out there

      Why Mr. Smith, that's interesting of you to say that. Did you say that because you thought I wanted to hear you say that? Or did you say that because you wanted to hear if I thought it was interesting to say that? Or is it a part of some grand scheme to overload the matrix with existential thought that has no true answer and would cause the matrix to overload with traffic jam upon traffic jam? Yes indeed Mr. Smith. Very interesting.

      Was that because you had previously seen him in The Matrix?

      <<I personally think that all of the actors did a great job. *shrug*>>

      I also. I thought Bloom looked appropriately elvish. My only problem, and
      this was only on first glance, was Hugo Weaving. He won me over swiftly
      enough with his acting.
