We are more connected than ever before, more able to spread our ideas and beliefs, our anger and fears. 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.

I love all the new/extended scenes! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm one of the people that would love for 7 hour versions of each film - I don't care about the pacing, I just want as much Middle-Earth as I can get!

I don't tend to separate, or define, each film as part 1 or part 2, so really can't say which one is "better". A particular favourite of mine would have to be the gift giving scene in Lothlorien. Absolutely beatufil and well done!

Two towers part 1 [In reply to] Can't Post

Gotta love all the Rohan stuff. It has the strongest, most mythical and vivid feeling.

At its heart, heroism is growing adult. Growing adult is defying the fears gained in childhood.

Favourite scenes [In reply to] Can't Post

although it's all of them really. Wink Afraid I can't differentiate between parts.

The Passing of the Elves,
The Houses of Healing
and that argument between Aragorn and Boromir on the banks of the Anduin.

The drinking game [In reply to] Can't Post

between Legolas and Gimli at Rohan. Maybe there are better scenes but this one was the first thing that came to my mind.

That's one of my least favorites. [In reply to] Can't Post

It's demeaning to both Gimli and Legolas, and takes precious seconds away from scenes that should have been included and weren't.

The gift-giving scene [In reply to] Can't Post

...really, really should have been in the TE. Criminal to have left that out. The scene at Gilraen's tomb was lovely, too.

Really, I treasure all the extended scenes, with only a few exceptions:

* the Drinking Game in RotK is a gratuitous waste of time.

* the "rat-brain soup" scene in TTT is unnecessarily demeaning to Eowyn, although I liked the dialog that preceded the soup bit.

* The scene in RotK where Aragorn observed the sleeping Eowyn was ridiculous in several dimensions.

The Houses of Healing scene. [In reply to] Can't Post

Which, oddly, is also the most disappointing of the added scenes, since it's cut so short and not done justice to at all.

The gift giving scene should indeed have been included, along with [In reply to] Can't Post

the extended Hobbiton scene-where Bilbo is introducing "Hobbits" and their ways. IMHO, that would have been the scene to make non-Tolkien fans come to relate to and care about the hobbits immediately.

I agree about the drinking game. I would have left it and the extended "skulls" scene out, but I don't mind them.

Going by part, [In reply to] Can't Post

I'd go with FotR Part One (and the whole movie in general). But I would say part one on account of the additional Bilbo scenes, adding the flavor that we are still in Bilbo's story (much like the books). It isn't until about half hour in that Frodo's story picks up, and the bridge to it is just fantastic.

Hard to say [In reply to] Can't Post

The return of the king part 1 has my favorite added scene, Saruman (why P.J. cut it I have no idea). Also the siege of Gondor was better, however ROTK part 1 has my least favorite and only hated scene in the film Gandalf coughing his lungs out while smoking now I don't smoke but come on P.J. you didn't have to stop the film for politically correct anti-smoking propaganda .

What don't you like about Eowyn's dream? [In reply to] Can't Post

There's a theory among us romantics that Eowyn and Faramir had the same dream. What makes the connection so interesting is that they interpret it so differently.

The Return of the King Part I and II and The Two Towers: [In reply to] Can't Post

My favorite:: Faramir and Eowyn Houses of Healing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Two Towers:: The Sons of Denethor


I like all the extended scenes, the whole Return of the King extended edition is great.
But at that time, those two were quite important to me
