There was a very extensive, well-written defense of the scene between Frodo and Sam on here a few months ago... [In reply to] Can't Post

I'd have to find it, but the author made some truly excellent points that supported the scene's inclusion and in fact argued - successfully, in my view - that it was a logical evolution of events in the films. It may not be in the books, but within the films it totally works. And ultimately, that's how the changes should be judged: not by their relation to the books, but how they work within the films that PJ established. Again, I'll find the post and link it here later, so that people can see why some don't take issue with Frodo's dismissal of Sam.

As for the Minis Tirith scene, I've never had a problem with it. After all that our characters had gone through, I can't help but smile and laugh myself when I see them all reunited in that room, their moods joyous, entering one by one to greet Frodo. Some people don't, which is fine...I just wish less snark was used to express that disagreement. "Ahahahaha, slo-mo! Laughing! Isn't that so stupid?" doesn't leave much room open for real discussion.
