Challenge for all LOTR EE DVD owners. Can't Post

So, for the DVD owners, the trilogy is cut up into 6 discs.
Could anyone rank these discs from their favourite to least favourite?
This, for me, is an almost impossible exercise because each film has to be scene as a whole and I am not too great at ranking.
Still, fun challenge IMO.

Here is a reminder of all of the discs:
FOTR disc 1: Ends when Fellowship is made.
FOTR disc 2: Rest of the film
TTT disc 1: Ends when Faramir captures the Hobbits.
TTT disc 2: Rest of the film
ROTK disc 1: Ends with Grond
ROTK disc 2: Rest of the film

For me it goes:
Favourite:
1. FOTR disc 2
2. ROTK disc 2
3. FOTR disc 1
4. TTT disc 2
5. TTT disc 1
6. ROTK disc 1

I understand if you see this exercise as pointless and impossible. I just think it's a fun challenge :D

You guys try!

Mine would go [In reply to] Can't Post

1. FotR Disc 2
2. RotK Disc 1
3. FOTR Disc 1
4. TTT Disc 1
5. RotK Disc 2
6. TTT Disc 2
FotR Disc 2 has the Fellowship scenes which are my favourites, hence why it's number 1. TTT Disc 2 is the least enjoyable for me because my favourite character (Gandalf) is hardly in it Laugh

FOTR Disc 2
FOTR Disc 1

A lot of fans are not that crazy about TT but I think it's the best of the 3.

I had to contemplate it for a while... [In reply to] Can't Post

... but this is mine:

1. ROTK 2
2. FOTR 2
3. TTT 2
4. TTT 1
5. FOTR 1
6. ROTK 1

It's oddly symmetrical. The second disc is always better though.

Can't do it. [In reply to] Can't Post

I was OK picking Rotk Disc 2 as my favorite, but after that it fell apart. What was better, Helm's Deep or Moria/Boromir's death, or maybe meeting Gollum and that view of Edoras with Shore's amazing music for it playing? Gah.

Here's my list [In reply to] Can't Post

1. FOTR Disc 2 This is by far the peak of the film series.
2. FOTR Disc 1
3. ROTK Disc 2 Brilliant sequence with Shelob, incredible Ride Of The Rohirrim, really emotional with Sam and Frodo on Mt. Doom. It's a shame that The Army Of The Dead were put here.
4. TTT Disc 1 The Frodo, Sam and Gollum scenes are great, The Return of Gandalf is another good moment.
5. ROTK Disc 1 The only major problem is the awful 'go home Sam' scene.
6. TTT Disc 2 While Helm's Deep is handled very well, the entire Frodo and Sam section is botched (with Faramir ruined) and the awful battle with the Wargs and Aragorn falling off the cliff.

Easier than I expected! [In reply to] Can't Post

1. TTT Disc 2
2. FOTR Disc 2
3. TTT Disc 1
4. FOTR Disc 1
5. ROTK Disc 2
6. ROTK Disc 1

Three and four are basically interchangeable, though. Can't really choose between those two.

all we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us...
