In the film [In reply to] Can't Post

it felt to me as if Aragorn and Eomer were meeting as equals at this point, neither having dominance. Eomer is bitter but is courteous in the end. Aragorn is less 'lordly' than in the book, but Aragorn only shows this side of him in ROTK, at this point he is still the Ranger. Even in Rivendell when legolas tells Boromir who Strider really is, Aragorn seems reluctant to fully take on the title of kingship, I dont think he feels he has earned the title yet. I actually prefer Aragorn in the film in many ways, as I prefer Theoden in the films. That is not to say I dont appreciate Aragorn in the book, its just a different reading of the same character, as he is essentially Aragorn still. I noticed that subconsiously Eomer probably realizes this is no ordinary vagabond. He gets off his horse, a significant gesture, it shows a willingness to get on equal terms with Aragorn and it removes the position of dominance of being on a horse towering over them. Not many Rohirrim chieftains would get off their horses to talk to casual wanderers, they would wish to maintain dominance.
