The only thing I was disapointed about was they didn't show the ending of most of the charactors. I mean, Merry, Pippin, Eomer, Gimli, Legolas...they just seemed to vanish into the sunset :annoyed: !!!

Well, actually, Legolas and Gimli did kind of literally vanish into the sunset. :-D

It's interesting reading some of the *harsh* comments from 3 years ago, I would love to know what people think now. :P

Do more people understand that Faramir's character *had* to be changed for the film? Would it have worked to have spent so much time telling viwers how utterly evil and seductive the Ring is.... only to have a MAN say "right ho chaps, I don't want this ring, you toddle off and do what you need to do". As a non-book reader, that would have totallly crushed the urgency of the entire quest for me if Faramir had said "I would not touch it if it lay by the way-side" or whatever it was he said.

Anyway....

FOTR: I would change or add nothing for this.

TTT: Same here

ROTK: Voice over of Galadriel detailing what happened to the Fellowship

For me...

FotR:
- Gildor instead of the Passing of the Elves
- Glorfindel instead of Arwen for the Flight to the Ford!
- Arwen at the CoE

TTT:
- Elves didn't ALL get killed at Helm's Deep because that's just unreal

RotK:
- Scouring of the Shire > Voice of Saruman
- Elladan and Elrohir...

YES!! <3

Okay. Seriously.

FOTR: Tom Bombadil & Glorfindel.

TTT: WAY more Haldir and Faramir. And no elves at fricking Helms Deep, kthnx.

ROTK: I would redo this entire movie, I think it was a disaster. Chronologically, in every way..

Haha, it's been fun reading through this thread. I can't believe I haven't posted in it before, considering it's 3 years old.

I don't have any objections to the movies these days. Whatever minor 'grudges' I held at first have all been washed away and now it's more wee things here and there that I would have loved to see since I liked them in the books!

FotR - The Barrow-wights of the Barrow-downs!!! They would have looked SOOO cool on screen.

TTT - Quickbeam!!!

RotK - The Scouring of the Shire! (although we do get to see a wee bit of it in FotR).

FotR: Bombadil and Goldberry! Man I love those two. Also, Glorfindel. The first time I ever saw FotR I was like, "Glorfin....*beep*? What's Arwen doing there?"

TTT: I'm going to second the Quickbeam comment.

RotK: Scouring of the Shire (of course)

FotR:
- Glorfindel! GLORFINDEL!!!! And I saw the films before I read the books and I still want Arwen to get lost... How dare she steal Asfaloth?! :annoyed: Then maybe Frodo wouldn't seam to be such a wimpy cry baby if we'd seen him faced of the Ringwraiths...
- Tom Bombadil, Goldberry and Old Man Willow. And the Barrow-downs!

TTT- Even more Rohan! :P Who cares about Fangorn or Frodo and Sam?! Just show me more Rohan! :teehee:

RotK: As much as I love the Capitan and the White Lady scene I want it to be longer! It just seams like Eowyn realises that she can't have Aragorn so she'll just have the next man she sees.... such a sort time.. In the books it took a lot longer... I want that in the film but I can understand why it's how it is...

I definetly agree with elu in the fellowship Glorfindel should have been the one to go and find Frodo it's his horse not Arwen's that made me so mad when I first saw it.

In TTT I would change the fact that elves do not go to Helms Deep and therfore Haldir cannot die!

And as with most people have said the ROTK should have had the scouring of the shire as it allows the hobbits to show more of their toughness and resiclliance.

well my little rant is now done this was a very good idea I feel much better now :-D
