Re: Favourite moments in the films?

I would agree with Brian. I really enjoy the first hour of the first movie. Seeing the peacefulness of Shire change. It looks so serene and happy but with an undercurrent of the things to come developing. I also like it when we meet Aragorn for the first time in the Inn. Its how I imagined it would be when I read the book.

Re: Favourite moments in the films?

At risk of being lynched, I'm gonna have to go with the battle at Helms Deep - mostly the Dwarf tossing, shield surfing, and the Elves - even if they do die easier then an bunch of Ewoks in Redshirt uniforms.

But mostly I like Eomers grumpy "Warmongering?"

Any bit with Eomer in for me (I'm more than half in love with him and having Karl Urban play him didn't hurt one bit *dribbles* if only they hadn't cut his part so much! *shakes fist at Peter Jackson*) but especially where he finds Eowyn on the battlefield - that battle and the Rohirrim part in it is my favourite part of the book too. If I lived in Middle Earth I'd be a shield maiden of Rohan, I even have the tattoo!

Tbh even if I didn't find Eomer such a great character, the way his heart wrenching cry cut through me, it would still be my fave bit.

Aragorn's fight with the lead orc and Borromirs last fight in FOTR. Heroic

Re: Favourite moments in the films?

any time Legolas is fighting. Though he's not my favourite character, and he's being played by Bore-lando Gloom... the style of Fighting is awesome and easily the best fighting style in the films.

Re: Favourite moments in the films?

My favorite scenes where the ones that sent shivers down my spine...shivers of excitement that is. And those scenes were when the Ents went to fight Saruman at Isengard (with that lovely music!), and when the beacons were being lit and we were following them towards Rohan. Those are my favorites.

I also love the scene when Gollum is arguing with himself, lol. The only time he ever appeared to be cute.

And finally, I also love the scene in the first movie in the corn field when Frodo and Sam run into Merry and Pippin.

Agree with Pyan...the horn blowing and then the charge. Also liked Moria for obvious reasons

Re: Favourite moments in the films?

I loved all of the movies, but I would have to say that my favorite parts were:

FOTR
Gandalf fighting the balrock (You shall not pass!!!!!!) that was great.
The forming of the fellowship in Rivendell (especially when Sam comes running out saying "Mr. Frodo's not going anywhere without me", and when Merry and Pippen come running out and the look on Lord Elrond's face. LOLOLOL) which was so inspiring.
TOTT
When the Rohirrim surround Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas, and Eomir threatens Gimli and Legolas, pulls an arrow to defend him.
When the elves show up at Helm's Deep and the look on the soldiers faces in the background. You could see they drew courage and strength from them. Great acting!!
When Gandalf comes with the Rohirrim on the 5th morning and they come down the hill and the sun comes up right at the same moment. Beautiful!!!!!!
Gandalf fighting the Balrock.
Aragorn coming thru the doors after he fell off the cliff and everyone thought he was dead.
ROTK
The lighting of the beacons (I can't remember if this was in TOTT or ROTK) was a great scene.
Gollum talking to himself is always funny.
Pippen's Song
When Sam tells Frodo that he can't carry the ring for him, but he can carry him, and then does. Can you say "Hero all the way!!!!!!!!!!"
When King Aragorn says "You bow to noone", I loved that.

Re: Favourite moments in the films?

I have to admit, that line "But I can carry you" was very emotionally charged. Well done to Pete Jackson for setting the scene beautifully.

Re: Favourite moments in the films?

Some of my favourite moments would be Borimirs. Despite being tempted by the Ring, he did have his good moments. Defending his brother from his father, telling Frodo not to 'carry the weight of the dead', and of course his sacrificing himself to save Merry and Pippin.

Re: Favourite moments in the films?

Emotional Moments:

I liked the part in Two Towers the way Samwise went on about the old stories.

And when Aragorn drops at the pile of dead Orcs thinking the Hobbits were lost.

I liked Pippin's song in the scene of Faramir going back to Osgiliath. It was harsh watching the steward eat his food and showing the likeness of blood coming from his mouth.

But I break everytime I see Aragorn telling the Hobbits they bow to noone.

I'm sure there are more that haven't come to mind just now.

Re: Favourite moments in the films?

It’s been a some time since I’ve watched the films and much longer still ( eight years I think) that I last read the LOTR Novels, so for forgive me in advance for glossing over of some of the details. This is from my favorite; The Fellowship of the Ring:

In Isengard, Saruman betrays Gandalf and inside the great tower Orthanc they duel. But finally he is overcome by his 'supposedly' wiser/elder of his order which was dubious to start with (but that is another story...). Gandalf ends up at the peak of the tower all beaten, bruised and broken, Saruman comes to finish the job and offer the deal one last time…he refuses naturally and says something along the lines of there is but one God and he answers to no one…with this he flings himself off the tower to probable oblivion, but is intercepted by one of the giant eagles he befriends...

In the mines of Moria, the last of the Bulrogs existing on Middle-Earth since the time of Melkor/Morgoth? comes after the fellowship. After the rest crosses the narrow ledge lining the top of the chasm, Gandalf stays on the flimsy ledge to face his worst nightmare (to give time enough for his companions to escape), “YOU SHALL NOT PASS!” his powerful voice rings across the huge cavern and he hammers the butt of his staff on the bridge transmuting the stone into solid ice…”flee you fools...” me manages to whisper before both wizard and demon plunges into the chasm…

Cheers, DeepThought

Re: Favourite moments in the films?

Saruman making the squealing noise as he slides across the room in Orthanc..... just too funny for words.
