Yes but...

In TTT, they had Arwen turning into a weepy teenager when her father tells her "You're going to long outlive Aragorn if you marry him". That scene makes her feel really stupid - this couldn't have been news to her. While I generally enjoyed Peter & Phillipa's comments the appendixes, I still don't like the way they tried to sell that scene as "Arwen being strong."

I really enjoyed her delivery of "But there is also life! You saw there was a child. You saw my son." Her emphatic and powerful depth of feeling was strength to me, as she fought for the life of her unconceived son.

ROTK: Not including Sauruman's death in the original version of the movie, and only as part of the extended edition.

My sense of loss was only as sympathy for Christopher Lee here, and temporary. Lee himself later explained his own ameliorated feelings about it when he realized that the theatrical release would be seen by far fewer eyes far fewer times than the extended versions released on home media and viewed ad infinitum (now on streaming). I felt much better about it hearing this directly from an old man who, typically for old people, is likely becoming more and more concerned about their legacy, and knowing his extended work would last far longer than an ephemeral release in the theaters.
