The movie made me cry so much when Gandalf died the way they portraid the silence the echoing it just brought the loss right home to you thats just the feeling you have like your hearts been ripped out and stamped on. When Boromir was shot the way he kept fighting, I sat there in the theatre cryoing my eyes out and whispering don't give up at him every time I saw it, the way he defended Merry and Pippin till he had no strength left and "they took the little ones" I'm misting up just typing this and Sam awwwwwwwwwwww sam "Don't you loose him Samewise Gamgeen, and I don't mean to, I don't mean too" I looked like a panda by the end of the movie

03-19-2002, 02:23 PM
I got choked uo during all the parts you mentioned. And then "Give them some tiem" (Or was it "Give them a moment"?) I got tear filled eyes. By the time Galadriel said "He has fallen into shadow," I was fine but that set me off again. I din't cry at the theater because I can't be seen crying by my family but hen I got home I sobbed over Boromit because I had only read the first book and didn't know he died.

03-19-2002, 03:00 PM
I cried 2 or 3 times during the movie. The worst though was, as you said when Boromir died. I mentioned this in the quotes thread, but the:<P>"My brother, my captain, my King" <P>That bit just set me off, I adore that bit. Im glad I only ever saw it on my own, I don't think i'd ever live it down if my friends saw me the way I was!!

When I buy the DVD I am going to lock my self in the computer room (The comp is my DVD player) and watch it and cry whenever I feel like it. My famil will still be teasing e about crying if I had.

03-19-2002, 10:19 PM
Yes, add me to the list of people who teared up during the scene after Gandalf's fall and the scene where Merry and Pippin are carried away, screaming and having to leave Boromir to his fate. Didn't actually cry but was up rather late the night I first saw it, feeling like I was on the brink of it and reading lots of P.G. Wodehouse to try and get into a frame of mind where I could sleep.

03-20-2002, 12:43 AM
I didn't cry when Gandalf fell for some reason. I guess I knew what was going to happen. I did find myself crying when Borimir died though. I guess it was that redeeming sacrifice.

03-20-2002, 08:04 AM
I personally didn't cry at any point, but sitting watching the film for the first time alongside my Mum, a lifelong LOTR fan, cried her eyes out when Gandalf fell, and I'm sure a little at Boromir too!!!<P>Airetauriel

I cried quite a few times. I didn't when Gandalf fell until Boromir said <BLOCKQUOTE>quote:<HR> Give them a moment for pity's sake! <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><BR>Then I was in floods. Cried again when Boromir died and right at the end of the film, there was just this big emotional well inside cos i waited so long for the film and it impressed me so musch, and also cos i knew i now had to wait another 12 months!

I was all depressed at the end (but I didnt cry, well I nearly cried) when Pippin and Merry got taken away. I was wailing for weeks "NO! They stole Merry and Pippin!" even to people who had never seen the movie or read the books . And also when I thought Frodo was dying, because I hadn't read the books then.

03-21-2002, 11:44 AM
2 of my friend downright REFUSE to go see the movie or read the books but I still go on and on and on and on about it to them.... I'll wear them down one day, yes I will

03-21-2002, 04:09 PM
I didn't actually cry during the movie, but I came close when the orcs carried Merry and Pippin away. The poor little guys

03-21-2002, 04:16 PM
I'm not a cryer, but this movie nearly had me in tears. Ok, it did, actually, at the end when Boromir died. Because I wanted to read the books before I saw the movie (there's something redeeming in that). I had never read LOTR before, so I read FOTR, then headed off to the theatre, not knowing that Boromir dies, and I was in complete SHOCK!! For days I was all "He wasn't supposed to DIE!!"" And my friends would roll their eyes. Heheh, I actually converted a friend to the love of Elves. There are two of my friends who also refuse to see the movie. Though one of their reasons is downright stupid. Get this, she says she won't go see the movie because the whole thing is to make money and get more publicity. Does it matter that it's the greatest movie of all time? Noo, not to her. She thinks it's all money-related, but what movie isn't??

03-21-2002, 05:09 PM
i always cry during boromir's death scene and especially when aragorn kisses him on the forehead and says:'be at peace, son of gondor'

03-21-2002, 05:10 PM
I've got a weepy all of my own:<P>cinema at home not showing it no more. it's done its run.<P>*weeps into mouse mat* <P>and I only saw 7 times! <P><BR>Oh, but i didn't cry *at* the cinema, but out of it. though that bit where they're crying when they get out of moria cuts me everytime... <p>[ March 21, 2002: Message edited by: Enedhil ]

I cried a lot. I cried when gandalf fell, and when boromir died, and when Merry and Pippin got taken away. And when Frodo was standing on the river bank, and he knew that he had to leave and he started hearing gandalfs words. *sob* I get chocked up just thinking about it.

I agree that Gandalf's "death" scene was brilliant. It could not have been done better. The music suited it perfectly-and the slow motion, the mournful yet soaring melody, and tears that the Fellowship cried, the echoing silence while the music played...it gave me a lump in my throat and i cried, of course. I also cried when Frodo is standing on the shore having a flashback of Gandalf, knowing he has to face his fear and go to Mordor alone. Also, Sam's loyalty in the face of adversity really got to me, because it was definitely one of the most touching moments in the story. Especially when he remembers Gandalf's words: "Don't you leave him Sam Gamgee..and I don't mean to." I didn't cry all that much at Boromir's death, because he kind of scared me when he attacked Frodo. <P>What moves people to tears when they watch the movie is the ability to feel connected with the characters...I mean, i knew Gandalf comes back, but i was crying because of all the pain and devastation that the Fellowship must have felt when they thought he was gone forever. The same goes for all the other sad parts of the movie..espeically Frodo, because of the sacrifice he is making...it's sooo incredibly sad!! One of the most beautiful things about LOTR is that you really come to know, care, and love the characters, and you don't want them to feel any pain...it's tragic when they do. <P>I cried while reading the books too. Espeically The Grey Havens. Just wait til the Return of the King movie. I'm positive that i will be bawling my eyes out and weeping like my heart's broken. I don't know why, but i think the ending of LOTR incredibly sad somehow. It fills me with heart-wrenching, bittersweet sadness to think of what happened...to Frodo espeically....in spite of his sacrifice, the Shire was still violated, and he will never ever be the same again, because he was "wounded, and it will never really heal." And how he had to leave Middle Earth because he just couldn't stay anymore...It's just how everything changed irrevocably, all because of the evil of the Ring. The story could not have had a better ending, yet it still moves me to tears everytime i read the last two pages. Ah, i know i went off on a tangent there...sorry. Anyway, the beauty of Tolkien's writing is that he can really move you with his words and his story. I can't wait to see how they do the next to movies. ahhh...9 more months til Two Towers! But...i AM going to go see the movie again next friday for the 3rd time (only, i know ) and i get to see the 4 minute trailer of TT! yay...i can't wait...

03-22-2002, 03:06 AM
I cried. Well, not the first time I saw it. I was with my best friend who was on the point of tears as well, except a very sceptical friend of mine was there as well, and I just <I>couldn't</I> let her see me crying, or I would never have heard the end of it! But the second time friend and I were clinging to eachother when Gandalf died ... We were both blinking like mad, trying desperately not to cry and then when there was that dreadful silence after ... we just couldn't help it ... we hugged eachother and sobbed into eachother's shoulders ... ah, that's what best friends are for!<P>The scene where Boromir dies - that was heartbreaking as well - though I couldn't help thinking 'Arrrr, you scurvy mongrel, you attacked poor Frodo!' but all the same, that scene was done brilliantly ... each time he had an arrow in him, he heaved himself up and fought for the hobbits ... oh ... I'm on the point of tears just writing about it!! <P>That has to be the second best movie I have ever watch. Well, the second most moving movie. Lol, forgive the unintended pun! The only movie I have ever cried at besides the Fellowship of the Ring is Casablanca, which is very old but my favourite movie <P>Better not think about the weepy bits of FotR anymore ... I'll start weeping all over the keyboard and get myself electrocuted ...<P>*sniff* <P>I think I need ickling.<P> <BR>- LadyArwen

Thinhyandoie: Because I wanted to read the books before I saw the movie (there's something redeeming in that). I had never read LOTR before, so I read FOTR, then headed off to the theatre, not knowing that Boromir dies, and I was in complete SHOCK!! For days I was all "He wasn't supposed to DIE!!"" And my friends would roll their eyes. <BR>That soooooo happened to me. I had just relised he was my favoret cherecter too. I couldn't cry or I would havenever heard the end of it from my father. I only kept myself from crying by saying it was a plot change, Sean Bean had quick so they killed Boromir off. When I read the beginning of TTT it was not a good day in my house. (WHAT HE DIES?! And a whole lot of crying)

03-22-2002, 03:25 AM
I didn't cry, but when Boromir was shot once, I thought that he can be saved. Then when he was shot the second time, I thought that he STILL will be saved. But when I started noticing that it was all in slow-mo, and more arrows kept coming, it hit me that he was really gonna die. What fueled my sentiments, pretty much like what everyone said, Aragorn's last words to Boromir were indeed touching. Such a man as flawed as him is so loved after all.<P>Another touching scecne in the movie was when Sam tried to follow Frodo. Sam knows that it's not part of his nature to swim, but he does anyway, and Frodo reaches out for him.<P>ay, such love for brethren. I hope I can love as they do.<P>(sorry about that. just had shakespeare to chew on in class)

*sniffle* I'm crying now, but then I cry at most movies and books at the sad bits, I cried atthe end of Galipoli and Schidlers List and I cried dureing the LOTR books, I could not STOP crying when ppl start aandoning Merr, I mean they'd gone so far together and formed sucyh close bonds and now Pippin was leaving and all the others tooo and they left him all alone with nothing to do and then the army tried to go off and leave him I think I cried for about half an hour

03-22-2002, 02:29 PM
First, I want to point out that I had read the books four times in my life before I saw the film, so I knew what was going to happenand all that, okay? And...all those times Iīm going to mention, I donīt cry every time, but at least I get tears in my eyes.<BR>Well, the first time was when Arwen cries, when Frodo "dies". <BR>Then in Rivendell, when Frodo goes out and hugs Merry and Pippin (I get tears in my eyes of happiness).<BR>When Frodo "dies" in Moria..<BR>Then the whole time from when Gandalf falls to when they have just entered Lothlórien.<BR>And again when the elves sing a lament for Gandalf.<BR>When Boromir tries to defend Merry and Pippin for as long as he can and when Merry and Pippin are being carried away is very touching.<BR>Frodo standing on the shore is one of the parts where I cry the most.<BR>From when Sam tries to swim and follow Frodo to when Sam has said "I made a promise......I donīt mean to" is another one of those parts..<BR>The very end from when Frodo says "I guess....." to when they set off for Mordor also brings me to tears....<BR>Then I always cry quite much when I read the books....<P>Okay, now it probably sounds like I am very sentimental and cry for everything, but thatīs not the truth.... I hardly ever cry, and am actually not very emotional at all..<BR>Itīs just that...about The Lord of the Rings, everyting about it....*sighs, smiles and looks up in the sky*....

03-22-2002, 02:57 PM
A few times that I've gone, I've watched the audience at these moments to see if I was the only wuss in the house. Apparently, I am not. I'd say that more than 50% of the audience is choked up at Gandalf's fall, and the departure of Boromir. Last time, the couple right in front of me were bawling their eyes out, and they weren't teenagers. A couple of times, I really had to stop myself from outright bawling, and just let the tears slide down my face unobtrusively. At first, I wasn't terribly thrilled with Bean's portrayal of Boromir, but now, I can see his portrayal is very, very good. Everytime I see the arrows hit him, I flinch as if they were hitting me. Poor doomed Boromir...<P>In an interview, Bean said that he may be in TTT. Apparently, they shot a dream sequence for Faramir and he says 'I am not in very good shape.' Knowing PJ, it is likely something that will make me want to sleep with the lights on after the first time I see it. Just hope that PJ puts it in TTT...

03-22-2002, 03:01 PM
With Gandalf for me it was like tears sliding down quietly but boromir and the end bit with sam and frodo in the boat outright sobbing into hands/coat/friend whatevers available<p>[ March 22, 2002: Message edited by: muffin_goddess ]

Oh, dear....I AM a crier...though Boromir's death was not one of the things I cried at.<P>Gandalf falling and Frodo yelling "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"<P>"Give them a moment, for pity's sake!", and beforehand they show each one of the hobbits bawling. <P>The entire scene with Sam and Frodo at the river:<BR>"Mister Frodo, I'm coming with you!"<BR>"Sam, go back! <I>SAM</I>, you can't <I>swim</I>!!

03-23-2002, 03:56 PM
I didn't actually cry while watching the movie, but I felt like it at points. The part when Gandalf dies was done so well. I didn't feel like crying because of Gandalf but how sad it made everyone,Frodo yelling and then the silence and slow motion. It was very well done. <BR>I wasn't really sad when Bormier died but when Bormier was being shot down and how he kept going to save Merry and Pippin that got to me. Then when they were taking Merry and Pippen. Just looking at their faces it was so sad. Poor lil Pippin!<BR>Then with Sam and him following Frodo and when Frodo remembers what Gandalf said, it was so all so touching.

03-24-2002, 07:37 AM
I cried when I read about Boromir's death. I didn't cry when I read about Gandalf falling beacause I was so much in shock. I had to go and hide in my room for a few hours just to get over it. In the film, I cry when the Black Riders show up but that's due to hysterics because I am so scared of them.<P>I didn't cry when Gandalf fell because I knew it was going to happen, but the expression on Legolas' face, and the bit where Aragorn calls to Frodo coz he's gone off on his own, and he turns around and there are tears running down his face...omg I'm nearly in tears just remembering it. That got me going. And Aragorn's expression when Boromir dies....that had me bawling my eyes out.

03-24-2002, 11:29 AM
I didn't cry when I was watching the film, but now, when ever I hear certain parts of the soundtrack or read part of the script, I bawl my eyes out!

03-24-2002, 04:44 PM
Okay: I cry more and more each time I SEE that movie...I cry 1st when Gandalf dies (even though he comes back...sorry: I'm assuming you all read the books), then also when they were outside all crying (the sad look on Orli's face got me right in the heart! lol), then when Borimir died...so nobly after being so bad...wow...I'm tearing up now! lol...Aiya quel (oh well).

03-25-2002, 06:16 AM
Yes! When Gandalf dies, the looks on all the hobbit's faces! And when Boromir says 'Give them a moment, for pity's sake', his voice is full of emotion.<BR>But I find it sadder when you see Frodo with tears going down his cheeks

03-25-2002, 06:22 AM
...And I just thought, the music makes it sadder too. When Gandalf d-i-e-s, the music becomes all sad and bleak. At the breaking of the fellowship, it sounds so lonely... so alone...

Jessica Jade
03-26-2002, 03:16 PM
The moment when Frodo cries, "Nooooooooooooooo! Gandalf!!!!!" as Gandalf falls makes me break down in tears! The tragedy of it, and the raw emotion of the whole scene totally strikes a chord of pity and overwhelming sadness in my heart I also get extremely teary when the Fellowship is crying and Legolas says "Give them a moment for pity's sake!" *sniff sniff* i'm going to cry now just htinking about it...

03-26-2002, 03:50 PM
Wahahaaaaaaaaaaaa! I just wanna cry! Wahahaaaaa!<P>Yep, as you can all guess I am listening to the soundtrack - The Breaking of the Fellowship.

03-26-2002, 05:29 PM
I got teary after they got out of Caradhras and the hobbits were crying, and Aragorn called, "Frodo?" and he was walking away with a single tear down his face. It was so sad! And I got teary at the end, when Frodo is by the river, and he has the Ring in his hand and that single tear running down his face...I loved that part. It was so sad and beautiful.

03-27-2002, 03:01 PM
i feal sorry for goolum because of his evil...... but i still dont like him...<BR>i cried a lot of times in the film.... especially when gandal fell into the darkness of Moria.. i also cried a lot when boromir died... and also in other scenes

I cried at the end when Sam almost drowned. Then, when I saw it again for the second time, my mom almost cried when Boromir died. When I saw it a third time, my dad didn't cry.

Having read the books more times than I can count, I knew that if PJ had done his job well, I would need to bring a packet of tissues. So I was prepared to sob through all the emotional scenes you've all mentioned.<P>But what I wasn't prepared for was the opening scene showing Hobbiton. I started sobbing right then. It was so REAL. Peter Jackson had made it a real place and made it possible for me to be there. (It wasn't a reaction to long anticipation of the movie - I didn't know about the movie until October.) Bree and Rivendell and Moria (Lothlorien not so much) did the same thing to me. So I was running out of tissues by the time Boromir died!<P>Second viewing - not so much weeping - except for Boromir.<p>[ April 06, 2002: Message edited by: Lostgaeriel ]

Well, I don't think I was quite so weepy the second time around--at least not <I>in</I> the theatre.

04-06-2002, 09:00 PM
I don't know if it's because nothing was a surprise or just because I'm just a hard old thing, but I never cried at all. <P>I saw it again last night and several people were absolutely SOBBING.

Yeah, I didn't actually cry during the movie, but I was sad at all of the parts that everyone has mentioned. I must admit, Elijah Wood knows how to make a heart-renching wail.

04-06-2002, 09:08 PM
I've seen the movie more times than I care to reveal and the scene with Merry and Pippin being carried off by the Uruk-Hai - it doesn't make me cry but I can feel my face tightening up the way it does where you're on the verge of doing so. Just something about their horror at seeing Boromir killed and their helplessness as they're picked up like so much luggage and carried away...<P>Samwise - the scene with Bill would definitely have been awful if they'd done it like in the book . But don't watch the Bakshi version in that case, since they leave in that bit (even worsen it, if you can imagine that. Bakshi never knew when to stop).

I usually dont cry at anything. But I had already read the books before I saw the movie, and I was sad before anything happened because I knew it was coming. The part where Gandalf fell and Frodo was ouside crying made me brake. I couldn't stand it. He just puts so much into those scenes. But the part at the end where Pippin and Merry are carried away and Frodo leaves, it is just aweful! i had tears welling up in my eyes.

Me too! Why would anybody hurt such cute hobbits?! I was almost in tears when Frodo was stabbed by the Nazgul and when he was taken by Arwen and he was so pale....aw, poor baby! But I cried when Frodo was standing alone, holding his ring in his hand before he went into the boat and he had tears in his eyes, when Boromir died and when he was carried downstream, and when Sam went in after Frodo and had to be saved, oh and also when Gandalf fell and the company was crying. So sad!!!! I really don't know how I'll take it when Frodo is "killed" by Shelob because that's where they end TTT. And in RotK, especially when they all go to the Grey Havens......noooooo!!!! But I'll be very proud of Aragorn, being kinged and all (is that even a word!?), so I might just cry then!

How can I have forgotten!!! Merry and Pippin, when they're carried away by the orcs....that was so sad! And so brave! But how many people laughed when Aragorn cut off the arms of the Uruk-Hai, then took out his sword and chopped the thing's head off? I laughed, that was so funny!!

Heh, the first time I saw the movie, the theater was silent when Aragorn chopped off Lurt's head. After that, the younger little boys were like, "Whoa!" like they had never pretended to do something like that while playing with action figures. Maybe they never thought they would see something like that in real life, and that particular scene made LotR their new favorite movie.

I cried the first time I saw it when Gandalf fell, and the second time I started, but my friend (who hadn't seen it yet) started laughing because my other friend gasped. Of course I just started balling until the end of the movie when Boromir fell. I don't know about you guys, but I cry every time I hear 'May it Be' because it is the perfect song for it and then it gets me to thinking about all of the books and all of the sad parts in it! (especially the end of the last book!)

I didn't cry but I was almost in tears when Boromir dies. That's one of my favorite scenes of Boromir and Aragorn.
