How about crystal skulls! [In reply to] Can't Post

Maybe if they would of been crystal skulls they might of looked nicer Crazy prettier!

Where are the rest of the skeleton bones?

Maybe the enormous amount of skulls was used to emphasis just how many dead there was, and how big the army of dead would be? for effect?

Sure, it's kind of dumb, [In reply to] Can't Post

and i'm not a fan of the whole Paths of the Dead/Army of Dead sequence, but it doesn't really bother me. It doesn't do much for me in the books, either. But the PotD look good visually, at least, so i enjoy it in that way i guess.

The only things i don't like in all the EEs-- which are the definitive versions as far as i'm concerned-- are all in the RotK EE: when the Witch King breaks Gandalf the White's staff (it was great to include the confrontation, and it looked sensational, but PJ took it too far); when Aragorn beheads the Mouth of Sauron (loved MoS, but Aragorn's action was waaay out of character i thought); and PJ's Corsair cameo (very poorly done and way OTT-- it completely blows any and all suspension of disbelief).

While I really didn't like it, I don't think it's solely responsible... [In reply to] Can't Post

for ruining RotK EE there's plenty of blame to go around there.

Tauriel: So let me get this straight sir, this Elwen girl is back on something called TORn, and rather than just tell her to stop stalking you, you'd like me to show up in a movie I have no business being in as a ploy to distract her, and nevermind the wrath of countless Tolkien fans who will be calling for my destruction?

Legolas: That about sums it up. Besides, some people might like you. Oh, and to be on the safe side, can we pretend to be a couple too?
