Re: The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

Well said… with just a few spelling and grammatical errors.

*—————- snip of article —————


1. The death of Saruman at the hands of Wormtongue

2. The Houses of the Healing

3. The wedding of Aragorn and Arwen

4. The Mouth of Sauron

5. More Frodo and Sam in Mordor

6. More battle at the Pelennor

Along with (1), hopefully there’ll be some expansion on the palantir. I
definitely thought the scene with Pippin and the palantir was overdone. It made
the stone look like an electrified hot-potato..

I don’t see anough time in the extended edition for the Houses of the Healing. For that scene
to be effective, you have to fully develop the romance of Faramir and Eowyn – I don’t
see enough minutes for that. If it is included, it will have to restrict itself to the King-like
healing powers of Aragorn, the comedic value of the old nurse, and some near-death suspense
of Merry/Eowyn. – Though the next time you watch it, look at Eowyn when the witch-king
is doing his “I’m melting” routine. She doesn’t look particularly injured.

Adding the wedding of Aragorn and Arwen will add too much wrapup to a movie that
already has enough(read the right amount).

And don’t forget to add the showdown between Gandalf and the Witch King at the
gates of Minas Tirith. THAT IS A MUST!.

All in all I agree – this was a monumental achievment in cinema history. Given the
realities of the movie business – the trilogy is far more than I ever expected.
