Since when was TTT a disappointment? Yes, it strayed from the plot a bit but I mean, you don't not like a movie or like it less because it strayed from the plot. I enjoyed it, though RotK took the...

Keep in mind, the Rohirrim have been riding for a long time so they aren't exactly "fresh". But yes, the Rohirrim had the advantage of horses so if any orcs escaped the blade then they were more than...

I loved it at the battle before the black gate, Aragorn charged, then Merry and Pipping and there was this brief shot of Merry and Pippin charging and the rest were just standing there. I laughed....

Yes he should die. I hated him. He was hideous, but that made him all the more hateworthy. If Aragorn kills him in EE, it will be interesting to see how he so quickly gets from the docks to the...

About the Faramir helmet thing, watch the end of TTT when their in Osgiliath. You'll see all the Gondor warriors armoured the same. I still firmly believe Aragorn is giving that speech. it just makes...

I don't mean to be rude but i must insist its Aragorns speech. I don't know why I recognize it as his. He has a strange tinge in his voice when he yells. Go back and watch some of the others when he...

I don't think it was an overstatement concerning an insult to literature or something. A sex scene in RotK would be the worst thing to happen. Number One, it would lead to the death of PJ by angy...

yeah, it does spoil a lot, but they did do a good job concealing gollum and treebeard until the release i thought. But you gotta see it from their point of view: they're out to make a lot of money,...

I agree with the Saucpan Man about Helm's Deep. What a classic setting for a horrific battle! Rain, darkness, storm. It perfectly sets the mood.

As a Christian, this makes the series even more appealing. I see many parrallels also, as well as my pastor. This is just a thought, but what if Gandalf represented Jesus, and when he fought the...
