I agree with everything you said. Most of the stuff was completely pointless. PJ could have kept it accurate and not hurt the movie in any way. I think he just diminished several characters by...

It wasn't the Valar's battle. The battle belonged to the peoples of ME. That's why the istari weren't aloud to use their true power. There are other topics like this. you might want to use the...

We must remember that Saruman was the head of the Istari and the White Council. If Saruman did not betray Gandalf, there probably would have been a meeting of the White Council where the fate of the...

Unless I'm mistaking, I believe that when Gandalf was battling the Nazgul at Pelennor, a beam of light came out of HIS HAND, not his staff. This illustrates that he didn't need his staff to use his...

Several of these I never noticed, but I'm really glad you all pointed them out. It makes me feel like PJ didn't have a complete disregard for the books. haha

You're quite right, Lord of Angmar. Now I can't think of anything good to say about it other than it showed how Sauron was distracted by the onslaught.

Just to play devil's advocate, how else would PJ have expressed the feeling of the eye being upon someone. I mean, in the book it can say "and we felt a strong evil and knew the eye of the enemy was...

Maybe I'm mistaken, but in the book, didn't Gollum FALL in the lava instead of being pushed in? That annoyed me.

Although at Sauron's height we was mightier (by far) that Gandalf, Gandalf is wiser and hence I would say his wisdom overshadow's Sauron's might.

Just look at the War of the Ring.

Okay, I just saw the trailer, and although it does look like superimposition, it is really in there.<P>It is Eowyn taking off her helmet quickly and her face is one of wrath not, joy.

It looks to me that all of those pictures have been super imposed... Like her head was put on someone else's body. Take another look, you'll see what I mean.

Possibly the thing with Sauron apearing and fighting Aragorn would be when Aragorn looks into the palantir and "contests the will of Sauron."<P>Anyone think so?

Sting Grammar Question

If there are any of you who know your grammar well, I have a question for you. Repeatedly, Tolkien used the word further in relation to distance. For example:

"He put the ring in his pocket...

I don't think that there's one "true" hero. It's more of a culmination of several people's herioc acts. So many people had a heroic part in the LotR. For instance:
Boromir was heroic in his...
