    This was super interesting to see! As a LOTR lover I was suddenly very aware of how many men there are in the movie (silly realization after all these years, I know). The one casting in this that rubs me the wrong way is Katee Scakhoff as Samwise Gamgee. Sam is supposed to be cuddly and loveable and loyal, and most of all not a leading man. I find it frustrating that the character who was supposed to be a little homely and chubby is being played by someone who looks like a supermodel. Why do we always do this when it comes to women? Other than that one complaint, I thought this was a cool thought and an interesting way to raise awareness for the male-centricity of so many stories and movies.
