Which movie is that scene in, I don't recall it at all. And I'm obviously not a big fan of the films so I've seen them maybe twice (theatrical too, so it's possible that scene is in one of the extended versions?). And with that said, most of my recollection of Elrond's attitude toward man is from his snarling in the first movie about how the race is so weak (which might tie into the Isildur failure to destroy the Ring, I don't recall). I sat there thinking it was a bit over-the-top for someone who's been like a father to Aragorn. Forgot about the elves marching up at Helm's Deep, stupid f'n scene anyways.
