It was all fairly predictable IMHO as soon as the "chapter: started, with the two hobbits charging with Aragorn to the troll *almost* killing Aragorn. I thought the lines between Gimli and Legolas...

On first impressions I would have to say FOTR would be the best. It was just a very coherent and solid piece of work by Jackson. From the Last Alliance prologue to the duel between the Balrog and...

Perhaps he had to think of his own people. Maybe there were no warriors among his wandering company, or perhaps not enough to withstand an attack against the Nazgul. He had to think of others before...

It is after all.. a longsword.. <P>Telchar forged Narsil yes, in the First Age. So the sword is much more than just 3000 years old. It was probably carried over to Westenesse by the descendents of...

Well it didnt have to be a 'giant Sauron cloud' but PJ could have been creative.. Maybe the 'cloud' filling the sky then penetrated/destroyed by sunlight... I'm sure something could have been done...

Sting The lighthouse of Mordor

Is it just me or is the effect of Sauron's piercing eye as a ray of light extremely cheesy. Baradur really resembled a lighthouse IMHO.<BR>I can stand Sauron without a physical form, but to make it...

Gilbo it's understandable. You can easily apply the overall story of the LOTR to events in real life. Although why American? :P Tolkien was English mate!

I'm pretty sure the Eowyn and Merry shot after the "This day we fight!" speech is just an edit.. Makes no sense otherwise because it looks as if the speech is being said at the Black Gate. Doubt...
