  • Mood:

This does not actually contain spoilers, hush.

Having seen ROTK* I shall make a spoiler post. There shall be no silly "lj-cut" because if you have not read the book and know these FIFTY YEAR OLD plotpoints, you are obviously lesser than me. Oh so lesser. Even if you probably had better things to do than read this stuff.

anyway.

  • The opening sequences were a bit distressing, especially where Gandalf sold Pippin and Merry off to support his pipe weed habit.

  • Legolas' crushing by oliphaunt was tragic, but at least it paved the way for Gimli to become the prettiest (something I am glad Pj focused on. I mean, more Frodo and Sam instead of focusing on the more important characters like Gimli and Arwen would have been unforgiveable)

  • Eowyn tearing off her mask to reveal she is Arwen.

  • Denethor and Faramir's big group hug where he tells Faramir's adopted and Faramir's real name is Eobob. "Son, you may have wondered why you're a blond gondorian..." is one of those additions I felt wasn't so bad. Although the leaving out of the piking scene was terrible.

  • the battle ending when the orcs suddenly unionize.

  • Frodo and Sauron talking out their differences over some tea and discovering a mutual love of poking Sam with a sharp stick.

  • The ending was a bit sad, with the whole being smited by god for being a bunch of pagan heathens and all but the music was nice.


The end. They all lived happily ever except for the being smited to death thing.
