favorite scene [In reply to] Can't Post

My favorite scene is in Return of the king. After Aragon get crowned and he is walking into the crowd and Legolas moves the banner he is carrying and there is Arwen and they kiss a passionate kiss. Just love that scene, I know its just a movie scene, but you can feel the love between them. Too bad that is a rare thing in this life.

my favorite scene [In reply to] Can't Post

my favorite scene is in fotr, when aragorn finds frodo after boromir tries to take the ring. tears fill his eyes as he closes frodo's hand over the ring as he tells frodo he would have gone with him to protect him even into the fires of mount doom.

i think this scene shows frodo's total acceptance of his awful role and mission as ringbearer along with all of the turmoil within himself, as he begins to doubt even someone who has protected and defended him for so long. it is the precursor to the scene where he sends even sam away at cirith ungol. it also shows the audience and aragorn, himself, for the first time, clearly why he must eventually accept his destiny as king--his loyalty to and love for frodo, the depth of his pity, his wisdom as he sends frodo on his way, and his courage as he turns, alone, to fight the uruks.

The White Wizard Approaches- My Favorite Scene [In reply to] Can't Post

:What do you see?
:The white wiard approaches.

:You are tracking the footsteps of two young hobbits.

:Where are they?

:They passed here the day before yesterday. They met someone they did not expect. Does that comfort you?

:Who are you? Show yourself!

.......It can't be........Shocked

While- like most Lord of the Rings fans- choosing my favorite scene from the movie is virtually impossible, this one stands out in my mind. I can remember back to when I first watched the movies, and this scene had me on my toes. I think it is the most suspenseful scene in the whole trilogy. I can just remember my racing thoughts; "The white wizard? Oh no! Saruman! He found the hobbits? What did he do to them? But wait- did he just say, Does this comfort you?.........Gandalf?But how?"

Favorite Scene - Running from the Balrog, and the stairs [In reply to] Can't Post

So many to choose from - I'm going with the scene where the Fellowship is running from the as-yet-unseen Balrog.

They've seen just a glowing light, and heard it, but haven't actually seen it yet - and Gandalf just says "This foe is beyond all of you -- Run!". I love the music/score as they are running down the stairs (esp. the use of male voices as if a Dwarven Choir). Then they are delayed by that break in the stairs. We still haven't seen the Balrog, but now start to get a sense of just how powerful this 'foe' is, as the whole place starts shaking apart while the Balrog approaches.

This is one of those scenes that doesn't come from the books, but really added a lot to the understanding that you don't want to mess with a Balrog! Smile

Pick Just ONE?!?!?!?! [In reply to] Can't Post


I think my favorite scene in the movie trilogy is the death of Boromir. I see the trilogy as allegory for redemption and sacrifice and Boromir's death is his redemption via sacrifice. His final words with Aragorn are touching as Boromir acknowledges Aragorn's Kingship and authority - one of the hardest things believers must do - submitting to a higher power.

Fav Scene [In reply to] Can't Post

My favorite scene is at the end of Return of the King when Frodo turns to the other hobbits while boarding the elven ship and smiles. It is so reminiscent of the smile Frodo gives Sam in Fellowship of the Ring when he is dancing with Rosie. It shows that Frodo is now at peace, just as he was in the first film.

Favorite scene for me [In reply to] Can't Post

Favorite scenes from start to end but one that sticks out for me is when the fellowship is in the mines and Frodo tells Gandalf that he wished the ring had never come to him because of all the bad it caused for him and others and Gandalf says That is not for us to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. So true.

My favorite scene is Arwen being chased by the Nazgul [In reply to] Can't Post

This has become one of my favorite scenes even though it is quite different in the book, but I really like how they added Arwen's character into the storyline and I love the horses in this scene - the stallion who played Asfaloth is just magnificient. The camera crew kept up with the horses going at full speed and it's just awesome!

Death! or Gollum's split personality [In reply to] Can't Post

Two scenes stand out to me for different reasons. The first is when in the Return of the King the darkness has closed in on Minas Tirith when at the break of day you hear the horns of Rohan blowing. King Theoden calls his warriors to line and the call of the charge is "Death!" That scene gives me the chills every time I see it because it so aptly captures the emotion of the certain destruction the Rohirrim were embracing to turn the tides of darkness.

The second scene I love for a different reason. It is when Gollum is arguing with himself about whether to trust Frodo. As he switches his internal voices the camera view switches back and forth and you see how torn a creature he is. I love it for two reasons. First, it explores one of the most tragic characters of the film in a unique way. Second, it is the first example I can remember of a truly compelling monologue by an animated character in film. In my view, this really pushed the boundaries and showed what Andy was doing was so much more than a gimmick...it was fine acting!

Favorite Movie Moment [In reply to] Can't Post

I think that probably my favorite moment in the movie trilogy is the lighting of the beacons. I love how as the flames jump up the piles of wood from mountain top to mountain top, that the music swells and flies. Every time that I watch it I get chills as the soundtrack stirs the feelings of adventure, glory, and anticipation.

I used to think there was something weird about me when I laugh at Sam answering "his gardener." I still can't figure out why I find that scene funny. I'm glad I'm not the only one with the same opinion.

Theoden's speech at the Pelennor gives me chills every time. If you watch the EE appendices, you can see why that scene feels so organic. The actors said that when they were screaming "death," it was ear piercing.

favorite movie scene [In reply to] Can't Post

my favorite scene is in the Fellowship of the Ring. It is when Sam and Frodo are leaving the Shire and Sam states that "one more step, and this is the farthest away from home I've ever been." And then Frodo tells him what Bilbo always said. This scene marks the beginning of the greatest literary adventure of all time!

Favorite movie scene [In reply to] Can't Post

There are too many to choose JUST one, but one of my favorites is the Council of Elrond. The hearts and courage of all are revealed, and a quest is begun. The foundation is laid for many events to follow as we meet Aragorn, Boromir, Gimli, and Legolas.

Favorite Scene [In reply to] Can't Post

After a great deal of thought, I realized how difficult it was for me to pick a favorite scene from The Lord of the Rings. As cheesy as it may sound, I think I'll have to say that it had to be the clsoing credits of The Return of the King. The character sketches combined with "Into the West, as well as my sheer elation at finally seeing Rings on the screen nearly made me weep. My wife was ready to leave the theater after having to sit so long, but I was unable to move from my seat. The trilogy was a beautiful experience and I hope, but deep down I know, that del Toro will be up to the challenge of enhancing the beauty of the series.

My Favy [In reply to] Can't Post

My favorite scene would be in Two Towers when Sam has just rescued Frodo from being captured or killed and gives his little monologue. I just love the whole thing -the music and the scene clips playing during- just fantastic! It makes me tear up every time I watch it! I even have it on my MP3 player!
Sam: Itís all wrong. By rights we shouldnít even be here. But we are. Itís like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they are. And sometimes you didnít want to know the end because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, itís only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something. Even if you were too small to understand why. But I think Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lost of chances of turning back only they didnít. They kept going because they were holding on to something.

Frodo: What are we holding on to Sam?

Sam: Thatís thereís some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And itís worth fighting for.

My favorite scene [In reply to] Can't Post

My Favorite Scene is in the fellowship when boromir is killed defending his hobbits, he has a moment of realization that he has done wrong and like others has failed to resist the temptation of the ring. He aknowledges that he has wronged his fellow members of the fellowship and especially Aragorn whom he earlier felt was not "Gondor's King"...Boromir represents the every man in the sense of Middle Earth in that he does have distinguishing characteristics but is tempted and pays with his life.

Favorite Scene [In reply to] Can't Post

Although my favorite movie by far is the Return of the King, my favorite scene in the trilogy is the conversation between Gandalf and Frodo in the Mines of Moria, when they are discussing the pity of Bilbo. Gandalf tells Frodo that "...many that live deserve death, and some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them?", later telling Frodo that "all we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us." I love this scene because even though Peter Jackson moved this conversation from when it actually occurs in the books, replacing it in the Mines, it remains a distinctly Tolkienian scene, and to me is even more resonant than when read in the Fellowship. Some of Tolkien's greatest themes are manifested here- mercy, providence, and taking an active stand against evil. This discussion becomes more poignant and powerful to me in the terrible and seemingly endless darkness of the Mines, rendering it Jackson's best change, in my opinion.

Favorite Scene [In reply to] Can't Post

I have to say my favorite is the sceen where Theoden and Aragorn ride out of Helms Deep. There seems to be such a switch in the nature of Theoden's determination to show courage in the face of the Uruk horde. Earlier he says that the courage of his men hangs by a thread and he holds firm as an example to them. But when the end seems to have arrived he throws it into another gear with some aggressive grinding and charges right into heart of the battle. "Fell deeds awake! Now for wrath! Now for ruin! And the red dawn!"

My Favortie Lord of the Rings scene... [In reply to] Can't Post

This really is rough, but I think my favorite scene would have to be Boromir's death scene. I just think his redemption is awesome... that he see himself as doomed and damned, and probably rightly so, but Aragorn is right there to console him, "No Boromir, you fought bravely. You have kept your honor!" It's just awesome the grace that he's given and I think even deserves for crying out loud...

Close second has to be the opening of Fellowship with the 'concerning hobbits' portion. Gandalf riding into the Shire with Frodo. Mmmm, everything is just so green, good, magical and... just right! Awesome, beauty...
