As we exercise the right to advocate our views, and as we animate our supporters, we must all assume responsibility for our words and actions before they enter a vast echo chamber and reach those both serious and delirious, connected and unhinged.

In the book the orcs pursue them on the river Anduin.They are ambushed and get into a battle.I wish this scene was included.
Also wargs and wolves attack them when they get out of Moria.

A few... [In reply to] Can't Post

The scene in fellowship where the hobbits are sleeping and a fox looks at them before walking by (don't know why but always stayed in my memory)

Saruman's death to be like in the book (i.e. his soul looking towards the west before vanishing in the wind-really cool!)

The wargs in Moria (me thinks this will be recyled for hobbit films)

The Barrowights (again me thinks The Hobbit...)

The rangers of the north (or at the very least mentioned-I always found Arnor's history really interesting)

More of Cirdan The Shipwright, and Elrond's sons.

I would have also liked The Scouring of the Shire, Tom Bombadil, Glorfindel and the Beregond stuff to be filmed-though I wouldn't necessarily have wanted it to be in the films (pacing issues-and wouldn't really work with the tone of the films), but it would have been nice to see them as deleted scenes-to show they had at least tried.

‘As they came to the gates Cirdan the Shipwright came forth to greet them. Very tall he was, and his beard was long, and we was grey and old, save that his eyes were keen as stars; and he looked at them and bowed, and said ‘All is now ready.’

Nice speculation Malickfan [In reply to] Can't Post

I really hope the wargs in Moria is included in the new Hobbit movie.Any evidence you might have of the Barrow Wights being included in the Hobbit? or you just thinking out loud lol.
I also would have liked to see Aragorn meeting the Dunedain Rangers(The Grey company).It is a scene from the book that i loved. It would have been good to see more of Aragorns Kin.

No evidence of the Barrow Wights as such... [In reply to] Can't Post

But we know AUJ is over 160 minutes long-that suggests some padding between the shire and trollhills (even with the eagles and Goblin town it would be a bit action light otherwise), we also know that Sylvester Mcoy (Radagast) shot some sequences with the dwarves and Bilbo (which seems a bit strange if Radagast is tied up soley in the Dol Goldur stroyline...and I do get a definite 'Bombadil' oddness aura off Radgast) and that whole 'Dunedain tomb raiding' sequence is in the film- which smacks of an oppurtunity to sneak the barrow wights in-perhaps the barrowights are the ringwraiths not yet at full power?-aren't their spirits bound to the one ring and suaron's power?- i.e the Barrow Wights could be the Nazgul on 'power saving' mode?. I can't remember who posted it but supposedly there was a list of locations featuring in the Hobbit films, and the weather hills and Barrow Downs were both listed (though that may be my mind playing tricks on me).

I personally don't want to see them in the hobbit (it is irrelevant to the story, I'd much rather see a film closer to the book's tone than that of the LOTR film trilogy, and to me a little insulting to cut and paste Tolkien's work from book to book- I doubt he would have approved) but as this will be PJ's last oppurtunity to do Tolkien (hopefully...I DO NOT want to see the Sillmarillion adapated...but that's another story) and by his own admission he's incapable of making short films...I wouldn't be surprised to see them in it.

So there you have it...no real evidence as of yet...

3. The deadly flowers in the valley of Minas Morgul.
4. The watching statues that scream in the tower of Barad Dur.
5. Beregond and Birgil.
6. Ghan-buri-Ghan
7. Prince Imrahil and the Swan knights.
8. Glittering Caves and Gimli.
9. Time moving oddly in Caras Galadhon.

Not all of them, and not in order [In reply to] Can't Post

- Imrahil of Dol Amroth, the various troops arriving in Gondor, and the women and children leaving.
- The dour-handed Rangers of the North
- The Hall of Fire at Rivendell and/or meeting the Elves on their way out of The Shire
- Legolas shooting the Fell Beast in the dark!

There are others, but I'll leave it at that for now.

  • The Grey Company and the Dead following
  • The Barrow Wights
  • The Scouring of the Shire
  • The Fields of Cormallen (way better than the waking up and laughing in Rivendell scene)
  • Merry and Pippin strutting their tall selves around the Shire in full Rohan and Gondor Regalia

From "The Steward and the King" [In reply to] Can't Post

Then Aragorn cried: Ye! utuvienyes! I have found it!..
Lo! here is the scion of the Eldest of trees...

...then Aragorn laid his hand gently to the sapling, and lo! It seemed to hold only lightly to the earth, and it was removed without hurt; and Aragorn. Bore it back to the Citadel.....

Aragorn planted a new tree in the court by the fountain and swiftly and gladly it began to grow; and when the month of June entered in it was laden with blossom....

Not really a scene [In reply to] Can't Post

But I've always loved the image of Gandalf, Galadriel, Elrond, and Celeborn sitting still as statues but communicating with their thoughts. It's in one of the last few chapters of ROTK.

Of course, I think the prose is the best part of it, and could never be satisfactorily transposed to screen, but I love it nonetheless.

The meeting with Gildor Inglorien and the elves... [In reply to] Can't Post

...on the way to Crickhollow. This is the moment in the book where the magic really begins for me - the ticket to Middle-earth, as it were.

There is something very moving to me about the idea of elves walking and singing beneath the stars, either remaining hidden or meeting up with "Elf-friends."

The EE scene of Frodo and Sam getting a glimpse of an aloof troupe of radioactive elves on the way to the Havens, with its ham-fisted dialogue, just doesn't cut it for me.
