I liked it too!! I thought it was very dramatic; and Aragorn cutting his head off was a nice touch.

We just have to remember that the movie is the movie, and the book is the book. They're both very different, and yet special in their own ways. :)

Ha s anyone noticed that the mouth of Saurons' armour was really rusty and that his horse looked like it was about to collapse?

Gandalf is the most powerful person in Middle-earth except for Sauron, for crying out loud!!!!!! Grrr.


YEAH!!!!!!!!!! totally agree with you there!

sorry.

i liked the mouth of sauron, but the fact that aragorn broke the parley is kinna upsetting. but i always thought of it as "the mouth of sauron" was like the mouth of sauron, so i thought he was suposed to be blind, but then i read the book and found it wrong, that it didn't mention he was blind. oh well. but i like that his mouth was all desgusting and his teeth all EW and stuff! it was cool!

Who's head does Aragorn cut off? Is it in the EE because ROTK EE is the only EE i don't have yet!

The mouth of Sauron...i'm confused...is that the eye?

If so I thought it was excellent.

The mouth of Sauron is on the theatrical and the extended version methinks, and the Mouth of Sauron is that bloke at the black gate who gives aragorn a load of stick and lacks a toothbrush.
Oh and lady of taniquetil, I can imagine the MOS as the before picture on a advert for colgate.
Hehe lol.
Namarie!

The MOS scene was only in the EE of RotK.
I gave a 'yes' vote on this poll but it comes with qualifications.
Was it how I imagined it when I read the books? No.
Was it a good portrayal for a movie? Yes.
Did PJ & Co screw it up with the beheading? Yes.

The portrayal of MOS was quite good in the fact it showed the decrepitness of the man that had become so. As pointed out by others here, his teethe were rancid, and his horse was a struggling beast. But it was quite un-Aragornlike to take a cheap shot and cut off his head during negotiations. Aragorn had way more honour than that. But I suppose if you need to simplify things for a movie......
