  Does anyone have the version of Rhythm of the Night used in the movie? I have both Moulin Rouge soundtracks but the version on the DVD is slightly different - there's a stronger beat etc. Any ideas?? :)

Thanks!

I honestly cannot believe a community like this already exists.  You see, LotR and Moulin Rouge are my two favorite things EVER.  And even though they have very little in common on the surface, a diehard fan like me knows that below the exterior they hold true the same ideals of freedom, love, and chivalry.

The Survey

1. LOTR fave character from book:  Sam

2. LOTR fave character from film:  Aragorn

3. (ditto for Moulin Rouge): Christian, my destined life partner

4. LOTR which character to you most identify with? Eowyn

5. (ditto for Moulin Rouge): Christian

6. LOTR which character would like to be: Arwen

7. (ditto for Moulin Rouge): Satine.  Gee, I wonder why I picked those two?

<u>Preferences</u>

8. Audrey or Faramir?  Faramir

9. Gimli or Toulouse? Tououlse

10. Sauron or The Duke?  The Duke

11. Mondmarte or Bree?  How could I ever choose?

13. Gandalf or Zidler? Gandalf

14. Light of Earendil or Electricity at Moulin Rouge? Light of Earendil

15. Elephant or Oliphaunt? A BRONZE OLIPHAUNT

29. Fave line from LOTR: "This day, we fight!"

I also make icons!Collapse )

  I love "Moulin Rouge" so here are some of my favorite quotes from it:

This story is about truth, beauty, freedom; but above all things, this story is about love

Love? Above all things I believe in love. Love is like oxygen. Love is a many-splendored thing, love lifts us up where we belong, all you need is love

The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.

We are creatures of the underworld. We can't afford to love! The Children of the revolution

Listen to my heart, can you hear it sing: Come back to me and forgive everything.

This woman is yours now. I've paid my whore.

Can't fall in love? But a life without love, that's terrible.

My gift is my song. And this one's for you. And You Can Tell Everybody That this is your song. It may be quite simple but now that it's done. I hope u don't mind I hope You don't mind That I put down in words... How Wonderful Life is Now you're in the world

Love is a many-splendored thing. Love lifts us up where we belong. All you need is love.

This ending's silly. Why would the courtesan go for the penniless writer? Whoops. I mean sitar player

Why does my heart cry? Feelings I can't fight... you're free to leave me, but just don't deceive me, and please believe me when I say I love you!


Can't fall in love? But a life without love, that's terrible!

Okay, is everybody ready to go and support our favourite villian, and thespian/hero?

I am revering to the Duke, and not Sauron, although I suppose the Duke was more silly than a threatening vilian. Anyway, Richard Roxburgh, playing Dracula, a true badass in Van Helsing this friday.

Plus our Audrey, branching out, playing Van Helsing's little assistant.

So just a little reminder of reasons you should see the movies.

Added incentive: Hugh Jackman

Another heartache, another failed romance. On and on, does anybody know what we are living for? The show must go on! The show must go on!

*runs in community panting* I can't believe I finally found a community for LOTR AND MR!! *dances* What wonderful, droolworthy luck! MR and LOTR are favorite movies of mine, and I can't believe there is actually a community that encompasses both! *squee!* *is an MR and LOTR fangirl* Anyway, I don't have much important to say at the moment except that I am in love with Moulin Rouge and Lord of the Rings, and that the creator of this community should be worshiped. ^_^ I saw this survey a few posts down, and also decided to jump on the elephant/oliphaunt bandwagon, and also fill it out, just so this isn't a completely useless post. *grins*



1.LOTR fave character from book: Erm... probably Pippin and Aragorn (haven't finished reading all books yet)
2. LOTR fave character from film: Aragorn, Legolas, Merry and Pippin.
3. (ditto for Moulin Rouge): CHRISTIAN!! *omgewanmcgregorissosexyandsingssogood!swoon!squee!*
4. LOTR which character to you most identify with? Hmm... toughie, probably Merry or Pippin.
5. (ditto for Moulin Rouge): Christian. I'm a sort of dreamer, kinda writer, and I believe in love above all things. (Except Ewan. I believe highly in Ewan. ^_^)
6. LOTR which character would like to be: Aragorn or Legolas. So what if they're guys? They kick serious bootay!
7. (ditto for Moulin Rouge): Satine… besides the whole dying and courtesan thing, she gets Christian!!

Preferences
8. Audrey or Faramir? Faramir
9. Gimli or Toulouse? Gimili
10. Sauron or The Duke? The Duke. "Like a Virgin" cracks me up everytime.
2. 11. Monmarte or Bree? Montmarte
12. Gothic Tower or Orthanc? Gothic Tower
13. Gandalf or Zidler? Gandalf
14. Light of Earendil or Electricity at Moulin Rouge? Light of Earendil
15. Elephant or Oliphaunt? Elephant
16. Battles or Cancan? Battles! *stabgrrrarg*
17. Diamond Dogs or Nazgul? Diamond Dogs
18. which 'temptress': Satine or Galadriel? Galadriel, she's pretty cool.
19. Which would you rather attend:
Bilbo's Party or Spectacular, Spectacular? Hmmm, that's a tough one. Probably Bilbo's party, though. Sounds like fun.
20. Council of Elrond or Emergency Rehersal? Council of Elrond! Legolas, Aragorn, Merry and Pippin, anyone?
21. Better Hair: Satine or Legolas? Definately Legolas. 'Tis very pretty hair. And shiny.

23. Elf: Legolas!
24. Diamond Dog: Erm, third one from the left...
25. Hobbit: Merry Brandybuck
26. Baz Film (other than Moulin Rouge): Haven't seen.
27. Peter Film (other than LOTR): Ditto.
28. Fave line from Moulin Rouge: Love? Above all things I believe in love. Love is like oxygen! Love, LIFTS us up where we belong, *stands on chair* ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE!!"
29. Fave line from LOTR: "No, the journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path...One that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all change to silver glass... And then you see it. White shores...and beyond, the far green country under a swift sunrise." by Gandalf
or possibly
"Hold your ground! Hold your ground! Sons of Gondor, of Rohan. My brothers. I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me! A day may come, when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of Fellowship,
but it is not this day! An hour of wolves and shattered shileds when the age of men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good earth, I bid you, stand, men of the West!" by Aragorn!
30. Line: Like 'em both equally, though there are other quotes I love too.

So...I was listening to the BBC Radio dramatisation of LOTR. I love when Faramir and Eowyn hook up. But I was listening to the description of their hair in the wind, her's golden and his raven black(?) [can't recall exactly] and I was thinking how if they had kept that description in the film, he (David Wenham) could have used his Audrey wig!!!

And I laughed. And I think it is fair to mention I have a strange sense of humour...
