Sure, I would loved to have explored more of Gondor [In reply to] Can't Post

and Middle Earth but as with all films they are only going to shoot what is critical due to costs and running time. Great EE filler material though. You just have to use your imagination with artwork showing those places and your mind when reading the books. I agree the movie world is much smaller than the one presented in the books. Gondor had multiple provinces and they all contributed men to the defense of the city but not as many as they could have out of fear of attack from the south / corsairs etc. The whole Dol Amroth scenes would have been terrific and seeing the incoming troops from those areas coming in would have been a great scene. Remeber the arrival of Aragorn with the ships was totally different than the books. The Dead Men of the White Mountains were released after the Umbar raid. The ships arrived with Gondorian troops from the south plus Aragorn's company including Dunedain and Elrond's sons. A tidbit...they had not yet chosen their kindred - elf or mortal man - so I am not sure what would have happened had they died....to what realm do they go?

            I think it's *more* exciting, and I bet the general audience would agree. DanielLB Send a private message to DanielLB Jan 4 2013, 5:53pm
