No, I agree, and clearly after seeing the movie I understand that. I was just curious, cuz I wanted to perhaps this time read the books b/f Peter Jackson could get his hands on them. (although I hear the Hobbit isalready in the works....?)

They've working on a rights issue concerning the Hobbit. It might be made, and I'll see it if it is, but I'll be mighty pissed if Ian Holm doesn't play Bilbo.

And I was hoping the part where Sam puts the ring on would be in the extended cut, but now that I look back on the film it probably won't, seeing how they made a point of not telling us Sam had it when Frodo is sure it's been brought to Sauron.

EDIT: And yeah, looks like the extended edition will be about five hours long. Which means we'll probably get Houses of Healing and that whole Faramir thing that goes on there, Voice of Saruman will of course be in it, probably a bit more battle footage of the blink-and-you'll-miss-'em army of the dead, and hopefully less slo-mo laughter and gay jumping in bed. Although I'll have to agree with whoever said it that the moment when Gimli comes through the door was pretty funny.

I suppose this could be a spoiler...


Did anybody else not like the "I am no man!" line? It seemed to be trying to like, score grrl power points or something to me.

Plus it's pretty much straight out of the book.

Eowyn fucking up the Witch King was my favorite part of the show, I saw the movie again yesterday and completely spunked in my beverage at how fucking dope this movie is.

I know it will be on the extended edition DvD, but I was really hoping to see the scene where Merry pledges his allegience to Theoden.

Yeah, I know. That scene totally wasn't in the movie.

The Clown's right, this is very much what Tolkien intended. I think it may actually have something to do with his dislike of Macbeth. In Shakespeare's play Macbeth supposedly cannot be killed by any man born of a woman. Eventually Macbeth is killed by some guy cut out of his mother's womb. Tolkien probably saw this as a huge cop-out and decided to do it right in ROTK. I thought the movie was awesome in how it handled it.

The Ents were also inspired in part by Tolkien's dissappointment with Macbeth but you knew that if you watched all the TT extra discs.

Let me also say that ROTK was truly Peter Jackson's Christmas gift to the world.

Immortal Goat is confused. There, of course, will be a set of all LOTR movies that will be over 10 hours long .

Well, it' s been ages since I read the books, otherwise I doubt the scene would've seemed strange to me. I originally thought that Gandalf killed the witch king (told ya, it's been a LONG time).

The line in particular just seemed like something Michelle Rodriguez would say in a flick to me.

Maybe I'm just a misogynist.

I just went out to find the last gift of the season and found a children's book retelling The Return of the King. It left out all the death stuff and condensed the entire story to about fifty pages, half of which were pictures. I especially liked the ending: "And finally Frodo and Sam got to Mount Doom to destroy the ring. All of a sudden Gollum appeared, but it was too late. The end." (paraphrased)

What was interesting was that it featured a picture of Aragorn patching Faramir up in the houses of healing. Guess that one can be confirmed for the extended scene list.
