1. (the most unforgivable) Gollum when he leaps on invisi-Frodo. That was the single worst scene in the movie. <I>Comical</I>, really.<P>2. I wanted Ioreth's line, "The hands of the King are the...

His part can be summed up pretty easily: that squinty elvish look (the equivalent of Frodo's 'my-God-I-wanna-go-home-I-just-wet-my-pants' expression), a few really freakish battle stunts, and, of...

I don't remember the exact words, but the Eowyn-Theoden conversation is absolutely dreadful. It felt as if they were both just repeating themselves over and over again. I could feel the audience...

I didn't like some of their casting choices, but the excellence of the others more than made up for it. Faramir's acting was great, as was Pippin's and Gandalf's. The only thing I didn't like about...

For some reason, Middle Earth seems bigger, almost more legitimate, than the man himself, its very creator. Strange, isn't it?

The way the women of Rohan were portrayed was so irritating. Scene after scene after scene was laced with ridiculously dramatic images of sobbing women. Why did PJ do this? Wouldn't it have been...

Perhaps the Valar knew that Sauron would be defeated by men. We can be fairly certain that Eru knew what the outcome would be, so maybe he bid the Valar to wait, send the Istari for aid, and let the...
