Not to be outdone, movie Aragorn can one-hand toss Gimli and make it look easy.

Not sure about easy ... how much does Gimli weigh anyway and how hard did Aragorn toss him (*snigger*)?

I'd guess Gimli could've been as much as 200lbs in his armour.

There was that beastly deflection of Lurtz' thrown knife, which was even more impressive because Viggo Morgenstein did it for real

I'd say Gimli was about 200 pounds when you factor in his stoutness, his armor, and his weapons, yeah. 


Looking back at the scene, he reaches down to Gimli with one hand but when it cuts to the actual throw, it looks like he might've used both hands.  Either way, it's a decent toss.  Conan could easily do the same but I think it's worth pointing out.

I think Conan's stronger by a country mile in the movies at least. At the beginning of 'Conan The Destroyer', a couple of baddies tie him up in a net but Conan braces himself and drags over THREE horses. That's sick, maybe his best strength feat in either of the movies.
