Watched the much anticipated sequel yesterday and I can't help to say that the ending was fittingly perfect!

Great story-telling! Now I eagerly awaits the release of the LOTR (Extended Version) DVD Box Set (?). Hopefully it won't be another year! :cool:

Yes yes. Loved it tho we all know how it ends. Wonderful to watch it executed on the silver screen. All the important parts of the story were there and it's great they didn't end it hastily. But there was hardly any time enough to focus on the characters. And the siege of Gondor was much longer in the book. Am I giving away too much?? :embrass:

Liked about this film:
1) The city of Minas Tirith was a spectacle, very well designed. (must watch again)
2) Battle scenes were overwhelmingly good.

Disliked about this film:
1) I was expecting the demise of saruman to be included :( Seems like a lose end there. Heard a major showdown scene between Gandalf and Saruman was deleted?
2) Feel the film is abit rushed.....The first two extended versions were better.
3) Would have liked the ending to show the final destination of ships leaving middle earth.

I Give 4 stars :D

Yup yup! I enjoyed the show even though I read the books a few
times. Only thing is that I find the last part draggy as the mini-
stories have been deleted... like the death of Saruman or the
battle in the Shire!

Looks like Sam never get to see his Shire burning!! :bsmilie:

Never read the book before. (No way I can finish a book with no pictures :embrass: ). However, heard that saruman will appear again, in the shire, when the 4 hobbits return? No?

:think:

Hmm...notable omissions downfall of Saruman and wormtongue, the seeds of love between Eowyn and Faramir and the final battle in Mordor was just a little bit short...looked more like a minor scuffle.

Battle for shire was thankfully omitted...that would have required an additional full length movie.

Anyone else noticed that their horses disappeared in the final Black Gate battle scene ? They approach the black gate riding on their horses. But in the later scene when Aragon says "This is for Frodo", all their horses are gone. I'm guessing the horses ran away when the 'Mouth of Sauron' appears. That scene got cut in the movie but is going to be there in the extended DVD.

heh heh heh.... going to order from US the SE version of LOTR: TROTK.. going to be a specticle when you get to blast the Battle of Minas Tirith on THX Surround sounds :bsmilie:

Critiques about the film:
1) too rush (pace is not as well as the previous 2)
2) the peace era alittle to whimsical and draggy... somehow I would like to know what ever happen to Saruman (still trapped in the tower with the Eiks watching over huh)

Would those that have read the book, mention what went missing in the film? :D Would it take another full-lengh movie to deliver them?
