*waves hand* I read all that, Anameleth!

See, I would have greatly preferred it if TTT was a lot more like the book, but I do understand most of the changes. Some, like the Elves, are frustrating and good at the same time--I liked the presence of the Elves, but the fact that it was added and wasn't in the books negates it.

And there's Faramir. Nothing compensates for that. Faramir was ruined for the movies. The more I watch the movies, the more their deviations bother me. And it increases exponentially. :annoyed2:

*gives Aerandir cookies* amazing, I didn't think anyone would read all that :P
(*actually made a longer post about why she likes lotr on a harry potter forum the other day*)

I can see we agree quite a lot, Aerandir, and that's good. at least everyone doesn't hate me for liking some of the changes :P

I read all that AND I agree with you! Does that mean I get TEN cookies? ;) j/k. Anyway, while the books will always be better than the movies in my mind, I agree that in order to make the movie a good movie, certain changes had to be made. I didn't necessarily agree with all of them, but the movies were great and really well done!

And while we're on the subject of things that were changed in the movie, why do you think PJ put the Evenstar pendant in the movies? I don't really see the point. Maybe it was just to put another connection between Arwen and Aragorn...

I know this isn't the movie forum, but the movie sequence seemed to be discussed a lot here. Regarding the Warg attack in the movie Two Towers.... P.J. likely got his inspiration to include in his "vision" a bit described in the book Unfinished Tales in the chapter titled The Battle of the Fords of Isen. In the second battle of the Fords, warg-riders attacked the Rohirrim horsemen screening the right flank of the Fords on the east side of the river. Saruman had sent them along with a small army of orcs east of the river Isen at its headwaters so they could attack the Fords from both the east bank and west bank. This led to the Rohirrim defeat in the second battle of the Fords of what remained of Theodred's forces from the first battle of the Fords. It was the first battle of the Fords where Theodred was slain, and was touched on by PJ in the extended Two Towers movie. In the Two Towers book, there is only a bit about stragglers from the defeat in the second battle of the Fords meeting Theoden and party as they were retreating to Helms Deep.
