fave scene [In reply to] Can't Post

My favorite scene in the trilogy is when Gandalf and Pippin are sitting on the steps of the second level of Minas Tirith waiting for the enemy to barge though the gates. Gandalf's speech to Pippin about death gets me every time. It is a gripping scene and incredible acting on Ian McKellen's part. For those of us (most of us) who wonder what lies beyond the grey veil, this exchange between these two leaves a comforting feeling that if death happens to be your fate, it will be OK. White shores lie ahead. Truly moving.

coronation scene [In reply to] Can't Post

There are a number of scenes that are even better on screen than in my imagination. The coronation scene is my favorite: Gandalf and Gimli crowning Aragorn, Aragorn kissing Arwen, and all of them kneeling to the Hobbits. It's beautiful and moving without being overly sentimental.

My favorite scene is when Smeagol finds some connies and gives it to Frodo to eat. and itt is later cooked by Sam and he asks "Whats taters, precious? Whats taters aye?" and Sam replies "Po-TA-TOES boil em mashem stickem in a stew." It brings back so many memories not only from the fan video but the movie itself.

the council [In reply to] Can't Post

my favourite scene in the trilogy is the council of Elrond - the whole meeting, this scene is the one that got me completely obsessed with the movies.
it is because of its increasing climax - this is where i got the feeling of the ring's power.

Is kind of generic but short and sweet. But I'd have to say when they finally get the ring taken care of. Everything about it was so amazing. I felt a sense of relief when it was finally gone.

Favorite Scene - Boromir's Last Stand [In reply to] Can't Post

My favorite scene of the Trilogy is when Boromir makes his heroic last stand in defense of Merry and Pippin. In both the books and the movies, Boromir has always been my favorite character. To me, Boromir is the most "human" of the fellowship. He has noble intentions but flawed execution. He makes a horrible mistake with Frodo but then steps up and out of himself to transcend his humanity (or fully embrace it depending which way you look at it) and redeem himself. Even though he still fails even at this last task, he faces overwhelming odds and almost makes it. He reminds me that humanity, while horribly flawed, is capable of amazing acts of courage and selflessness. It's one of the most beautiful parts of both the books and the movie and it makes me glad that PJ and crew got Boromir "right". They could have made him a complete a-hole but they didn't and I give them my thanks for it :)

I always cry like a baby when he finally dies in Aragorn's arms ...

The Bridge of Khazad-Dum [In reply to] Can't Post

So many great scenes to choose from but Gandalf's final stand against the Balrog is one for the ages. Even after all these years (and a LOT of time watching the movies) I get chills when I hear "YOU SHALL NOT PASS!"

In pursuit of Merry and Pippin [In reply to] Can't Post

The first scene that rises to mind as a favorite is the long pursuit of Merry and Pippin by Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli, across the fields of Rohan. The loyalty and love these three demonstrate for the hobbits in peril, and for each other in this extraordinary journey, speaks to me of the core values Tolkein returns to again and again in LOTR.

My favorite scene in the Lord of the Rings is the storming of Eisengard by the Ents. The combination of cinematography, special effects, and music gives me goosebumps every time.

My favorite scene is Eowyn (and Merry) killing the witch-king. I just love the "No living man may hinder me!" arrogance.

Favorte scene [In reply to] Can't Post

    Although this is really hard to choose I would probably have to go with the part of Aragorn's coronation when the hobbits bow down to him. Aragorn simply says "My friends... you bow to no-one." Then Aragorn and the entirety of the coronation proceed to bow down to the hobbits. Homage to the true heores of this adventure. It touches me every time. Pure golden. I espicially like the look on the hobbits faces, that of awe and mild modesty at the scope of the recognition.

I also love the scene where the ents decide to be 'hasty' and march toward Isengard. I always feel like jumping up and down and shouting "Yes!!! Nature finally gets to fight back!" Howard Shores score at that scene really adds to it too. Although it is a deleted scene, when the fellowship parts from Rivendell is another favorite of mine. I espicially like when Frodo leads off the party and has to ask Gandalf which path to take. No matter how daunting it may seem all great journeys must start with those first unsure steps.

CoolMy favorite scene is when Gandalph is standing on the bridge and Yells at the Balrog "You shall not pass".
He says it with such fervor and the music cascades us into a tumultuous scene.

"For Frodo" [In reply to] Can't Post

To me, the scene where Aragorn acknowledges Frodo's efforts, and uses that to rally and united the remainder of the Fellowship at the Black Gate to him, sums up a lot of the spirit of the story - it's not in the books, but it's very true to them all the same. One of the best, if not the best, examples of the creative, appropriate and meaningful ways they found to present not just the plot, but the heart of the story on screen.

"You shall not pass!!!!"
Yep. The bridge of Khazad-dum was my favorite because I remember being blown away by it as a kid. It was extremely exciting, featured a creature made of fire, and it was also incredibly sad. The Balrog remains as one of my favorite creatures from the movies and books.

My favorite scene is right at the end:

"Well, I'm back."

Even after all that happened, and after Frodo and company have departed, life still goes on for the rest of us. Very poignant.

So Many to Choose From [In reply to] Can't Post

Like many others, I find it hard to think of what scene would be my favorite. However the first one that came to mind when contemplating this question, was the scene when Frodo wakes up in Gondor after he and Sam are rescued by Gandalf and the eagles. He's laying in bed, with the other members of the Fellowship around him and he looks to the door where Sam is standing and the two of them share a look and a smile. That look between them spoke so much to me - without requiring a word. It's as if that particular moment at once, justifies all that they've been through and sets them forever apart from the others.

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

IMHO, the best scene is the "You bow to no one" scene from Aragorn's coronation in RotK. This is my favorite scene because Aragorn was the man of the hour, yet in the end, he bowed to the four hobbits. It was also really cool how you could see each hobbit's personality reflected in their response to the recognition. Merry's got this big grin on his face, Pippin's trying to not look too pleased (but still is), Sam is kind of embarassed, and Frodo is sad.

Lembas Bread [In reply to] Can't Post

My favorite scene is when Legolas tells Merry and Pippin that one small bite of lembas bread can fill the stomach of a grown man. Merry then asks Pippin how many he had, and Pippin says "four".

Because Boromir is my favorite character, I love all of his scenes. Many are favorites for various reasons, but if I had to pick only one it would be the sequence that begins where he tries to take the ring from Frodo and ends with his final vow of allegiance to Aragorn and death.

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

The mirror of Galadriel scene is probably my favorite. Two Ringbearers meet in a dreamlike setting. Frodo will see his nightmare future if he should fail in his quest. Galadriel will finally see her chance to take the Ring and become a creature of horrible power, Will she, or won't she take the Ring for herself? In the end she resists the lure of the Ring and encourages Frodo to carry on. "Even the smallest person can change the course of the future."

This scene truly felt like a dream. The cinematography was gorgeous as was the musical score. The characters were masterfully portrayed. The costumes and settings were superb. I can still see the ripples of the water reflecting on Frodo's smooth face and Galadriel's enigmatic smile when he asks, "What will I see?" Moviemaking alchemy at its finest!

favorite scene [In reply to] Can't Post

When the first movie came out, I was dealing with a lot--my mother's failing health, my own infertility, and so on. I had always found comfort in great stories, and was looking forward to Peter Jackson's adaptation of Tolkien's masterpiece for some time. As I had hoped, the movies provided more than just an escape from day-to-day stressors, but also reminded me that we don't choose the burdens that we carry, only the manner in which we carry them.

Thus, my favorite scene:
Frodo I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened." Gandalf - "So do all who come to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to do is decide what to do with the time that is given to us.

I love that Gandalf doesn't chide Frodo for wishing away his troubles, but rather gently concurs and offers the understated wisdom of a great friend.

Favorite scene [In reply to] Can't Post

I go back and forth between a couple different scenes. The opening scene of Fellowship where Galadriel narrates the "History of the Ring" and the Last Alliance is great, and one of my favorite scenes from the book, the arrival of the Rohirrim at the Pellennor Fields is also great (though another favorite scene, when Eowyn fights the Witch King, wasn't as hot in the movie as it was in the book).

But FAVORITE scene? It's the lighting of the beacons in ROTK, and for a number of reasons. It's amazing that a scene with no dialogue, just little fires going up and music playing manages to get to me every single time I see it. It's a scene that more than any other in the trilogy manages to take a scene from the books and make it a thousand times more real. It's one of those things that a book can't do nearly as much justice to as a movie can. Kudos to PJ and HS for making that scene what it is.
