Here, you can say what one scene/character/battle you would have liked to have been in FOTR, TTT or ROTK, put it here...

The Fellowship of the Ring - I would like to see Glorfindel, not Arwen. Bloody Arwen stole Asfaloth, the horse of Glorfindel, and she even stole her father's sword Hadhafang... You can see I'm not very fond of her.

The Two Towers - This movie is just a mess, I'd like to change about everything in this one... The Elves do not go to Helm's Deep, Haldir does not die there, Aragorn does not fall into some river so Brego can save him... Those Wargs do not even attack the party going to Helm's Deep! Et cetera! Et cetera!

The Return of the King - Well, I can only agree with Ben here, the Scouring of the Shire is a big part which I'm missing so much in this film. I also hate the fact Saruman dies on top of his own Tower, Orthanc.. Gríma Wormtongue is killed by an arrow of Legolas, yeah right!

And in general: more footage of Faramir! (okay, that is just a personal opinion)

What a great topic. Now, let's see if I can narrow down what I'd like to see changed.


FotR I'd like to see the Conspiracy. That was a sequence I really missed in the movies!

TTT I would like to see the REAL Faramir in this one--Faramir as Tolkien wrote him.

ROTK A boring comment, perhaps, because I expect many people to share my opinion: Scouring of the Shire! Woo-yah!

Another possibility with the Return of the King is to add the Woses..

There are things I would definantly add.........but I can not name them all.

FotR: Tom Bombadil.........I wish I could of heard his singing and seen his blue hat and yellow boots.

TTT: More, more, more ,more Faramir.

RotK: Scouring of the Shire.........I'm sure everyone wanted to see this.

to FotR-Tom Bombadil -he is just a amusing character and I like that he sings and stuff.

to TTT- more Faramir.

to RotK- the endings of all the characters.

Interesting topic...

FoTR - yes, Tom Bombadil! Maybe he was too - you know cartoon-ish or something, but I loved him in the book!

TTT - Well... Many say more Faramir. I agree to that one. And how about the food that Faramir gave to Sam and Frodo? Then we wouldn't have to sit and bite our nails in RoTK becuase they have nothing to eat... small add.

RotK - well, difficult. A bit more Éowyn and Faramir, perhaps :yes:
I can't think of more right now..

What about the Scouring of the Shire and the Woses for the Return of the King, Master-of-Buckland?

i think in RotK i'd like to see more of Faramir/Eowyn relationship and Faramir portrayed more like the book- not as power-hungry or taking Frodo to his father. in the book (i think, correct me if i'm wrong) he captures him, helps him, and sends him on his way. it bugs me in the movie.

FOTR: More of Lothlorien and Rivendell! *grins* I just wanna see Elves in their natural habitat.. the ordinary ones as well as the great lords etc...

TTT: Show more of Legolas in Fangorn- he was obsessed with it in the books, and they hardly showed anything in the movies!

ROTK: The Legolas in Fangorn ending that they missed out! *grumbles*

FOTR: Arwen did not take frodo to Rivendel! that is a crime and a offense against the book, but it seems that getting a new actor was too costy...

TT: yep...there were no elves and eomer was actually inside the fort, then rembark...who the hell anyway came to their rescue with footmen! not riders...then saruman`s army had more than uruk hai! the wildmen should not have been forgotten...

ROTK: first of all those stupid ghost were stupid/useless i mean there is no excitement in that those ghost wipe those stupid orcs...AND the easterling and haradrim troops should have been in the movies ecspecially in the battle of minas tirith!

I cant agree with you more! Those are my exact thoughts. Also in FOTR i would like to add the hobbit leaving hobbiton and going through the old forest.

Legolas is always supposed to be singing to himself in the books- I would have loved to see him singing in the films!
