I have been disappointed in the new Amazon Lord of the Rings series so I decided to go back and rewatch all of the Peter Jackson movies as a palate cleanser. I even watched the Hobbit movies because, while they were not great, I have still found them better than what's currently on offer.
I have to bump up my estimation of these films purely because of the absolutely based way they handle the character of Alfrid Lickspittle. He's one of the few well written and well acted characters in the film, being thoroughly despicable. During the Battle of Five Armies, instead of helping his fellow people he repeatedly shows cowardice.
His final act of shame is to dress as a woman so that he can hide with the elderly, the infirm, and the women and children. Seeing that the battle is going poorly, the able-bodied women start to arm themselves. Alfrid is discovered by an appropriately outraged woman who shouts "You are a coward."
Afrid replies "Coward? Not every man's brave enough to wear a corset."
But nobody is having any of it. There is no such thing as Brave and Stunning in these parts.
"You're not a man," she replies. "You're a weasel."
As the villain runs off in the end, he's informed that his slip is showing.
Ya know, these movies may have been kind of crap as an adaptation of The Hobbit, but they get a standing ovation from me just for including that scene.
