The Grey Havens Can't Post

I just finished watching ROTK and although there is much about the movies that people like me would like to be closer to the books, I think The Grey Havens scene is so good that even Christopher Tolkien may like it. The whole scene is as near to perfect as I can imagine. Easily the most emotional part of the whole trilogy for me and possibly for any movie ever. It makes me want to get on that white ship.

The only thing I would add is Frodo's sight of Valinor, but saying that , without that aspect the scene does not suffer.

Follow this up with Sam's homecoming and Into the West and it is just all types of awesome.
