three scenes [In reply to] Can't Post

Well, there are three specific treatments of events or words from the book where I found the films had a stronger impact or used them to better effect.

One is the death of Boromir, seeing it directly, seeing him fighting, seeing in his eyes his the doubt and the fear that he had failed, having Aragorn kiss him on the forehead.

The second, but only slightly, was how Sam caught up with Frodo at the end of FoTR and went after him. Everything in this scene, including Sam nearly drowning, was done perfectly with great emotions and acting.

Third thing I can think of is the way they made use of Aragornīs poem in Rohan from TTT. Both the visuals accompanying them, the placing of the poem, whom they gave it to (Theoden) and the words themselves made a stronger impact in the film compared to the book.
