Another scene I like is when Eowyn (?sp) and Pippin sneak off to battle. Eowyn is played by Miranda Otta who I've been watching in Cashmere Mafia and Starter Wife before that.

Isn't she great in Cashmere Mafia! I really dig that show! Her character is so very different from her LoTR persona.

I thought she a Merry made a great team - I loved when he came to her rescue when the Witch King was going to strike her down as she was protecting her Uncle.

I was so glad she and Faramir fell in love wink

I adore the music, I have it all on CD and in my iTunes system.

We do quote the "Mines of Moria" phrase in that accent smile

"You Shall Not Pass!" is another favorite of mine. Although that segues into another of my pet peeves. Jackson felt it was VERY clear in that scene that the ledge Gandalf was clinging to was actively crumbling and that the reason he deliberately lets go is to prevent anyone from dying, too, by going out to rescue him. But I've talked with several people who thought the ledge looked nice and solid. It would have been so easy for the filmmakers to show little pebbles and fissures forming to make it nice and clear that Gandalf was deliberately sacrificing himself to save the others. But I suppose it's hard to think of everything smile

I agree Lisa, they did make it look like Gandalf just sacrificed himself. With all the great special effects already in the movie, a crumbling ledge wouldn't have been too much to ask for. But you're right. It's hard to think of everything.

I wonder if this is an area where people who read the book knew what was going on so they made that leap of faith. The people I knew who hadn't read the book were confused, they didn't understand why the hobbits didn't just go out and pull him up, and thought Gandalf slipped because they were too slow.

Yes that bit where Sam carries Frodo is beautiful.

I find one of the funniest bits is at the deciding what to do with the ring. Elronds face when sam appears THEN pippin and merry is just so fun!

One thing I missed from the book tho was Tom Bombadil. and the barrow waights. That was both amazing and scary. Tom could see frodo even with the ring on and it had no hold what so ever over him. Tho how they would have screened that, I don't know.

Hmmmm. What did I miss. I didn't miss Tom ... I did miss the reclaiming of the Shire. I think that was an important part to leave out.

Personally, I didn't miss Tom Bombadil in the movies. I thought that passage of the book was somewhat boring.

I didn't miss Tom Bombadil in the movie until I read the book again, and I was like "Oh wow! I had totally forgotten about him."

One thing about the book, was that when Frodo left the Shire, it was at his leisure. They didn't seem rushed at all. The movie was all about getting out of there now!
