grace under pressure [In reply to] Can't Post

If by Faramir's behavior, you mean him being tempted by the Ring, I don't have a problem with that. Since the movie changed the reason for Boromir's mission to Rivendell, it takes an important clue away from Faramir to how vulnerable his brother is to the Ring (and how dangerous that thing really is). It's not until Sam talks about how the Ring made Boromir mad that Faramir starts waking up (I had this theory before reading the books so I was glad to find support for it when I finally got around to them) Smile. If you mean the treatment of Gollum, then I agree with you and Eldorion that the writers dropped the ball here. There was no point to the rangers doing that. At least we knew why Jack Bauer tortured his suspects. So as a movie-firster, I can tell you that this part doesn't even make internal sense. And in the EE, this part gets even more confusing.

Still, Faramir was my favorite character long before I read the books. All thanks to this scene. Faramir has so much courage if he's not only able tell Daddy that he won't touch the Ring but also that Boromir would have kept it for himself. If that were me, I'd barely be able to think.
