    So, what are your favorite scenes? Persopnally I like the ones in Rivendale and Lothlorian. Especially the part when The fellowship was leaving Lothlorian and they were discussing Lembas. HeeHeeHee.

    I most enjoy the parts in The North with Aragorn traveling, and I like the Lothlorien Scenes and The Last Battle Scene

    I like the Coucil of Elrond, the bit where they're going to the Bridge of Khazad Dum, and the final fight scene where Legolas shoots 7 (or was it 9) arrows in a row :D Go Legolas!

    Oh, I also like the part in the Mines of Moria, in the ee, when Boromir is at a loss of his sword and a orc is on him, then Aragorn throws his sword at the Orc, the look after that they give, I love it!

    Mine would have to be the schene when Aragorn goes to take on the approaching Uraki and he raises his sword and then just goes swinging at them. I also enjoyed the final fight scene with Boromir.

    Mine are the whole council of elrond scene in the Extended Edition of FOTR and the whole part in the Mines of Moira and the last battle with the Urak-Hai.

    I actually enjoyed the fight scenes in FOTR more than Helm's Deep (which I still loved, don't get me wrong!)
    I loved the whole Moria scene, from the dark quiet after the attack by the Watcher, to the fight with the Moria Orcs, to the Balrog & Gandalf. I still get goosebumps every time he cries "You shall not pass!"
    And the final scene at Amon Hen, with Boromir's heroic fall, and seeing Aragorn, Legolas & Gimli kicking some serious Uruk butt :D

    The Mines of Moria, the Passing of the Elves (in the EE) and the lembas scene when they are leaving Lothlorien are my favorites. Oh, but wait, I love all the scenes in the Shire too, and Bree. Heck, I love'em all! :D

    Mububban, I agree about the fight scenes. For some reason I like the ones in FOTR better than the big battles in TTT.

    I loved the spectacle of Helm's Deep, but the FOTR fight scenes felt much more personal and close and thrilling because you were right there, in the action.
    But in TTT the action was split between Helm's Deep, Frodo & Sam, and Merry & Pippin, so it felt disjointed as opposed to the extended fight scenes in FOTR.

    Yeh-yeh! I love ALL the fight scenes in FOTR! Esp. Boromir's at last valiant efforts towards the Fellowship's quest that claim his life. AND Lurtz shooting the poorly fashioned arrows, :the tension of the bow: I love that bit !!! And then Aragorn throws himself in and disembows Lurtz all-in-one fluent motion. Lurtz is so awesome [as is Bormir] .... and Aragorn 'course ;) That scene has all the fruit and more!

    I think TTT wasn't as impacting because for one, you couldn't see evrything as clearly against the black of night and rain as you could against the lush palette of Fellowship. Two, TTT was very fast-paced and hack-and-slash swordplay whereas FOTR featured more thought out scenes, AND Three, you haven't seen the Extended so just wait and save your opinion till then!
    Howevr, I love both movies with all my heart. Each has it's own flavour-of-the-month and is unique to its stage in the book. I can't complain at any rate. :D Loving LOTR with a PASSION!.....

    My favourite scene in FoTR was Boromir's death scene. That was a really well down scene.

    Gandamir Bagleaf: That was TTT, not FotR;)

    Breaking of the Fellowship is my favorite. Weathertop and Moria were pretty good to.

    I certainly don't feel that way, but does he ever smile? I mean a real bonafide smile? I don't remember.

    Ooh! :D There's a spine-tingling thought! In a good way, that is, hehehe!

    Lady_of_Shalott - yeah, he does smile...that bit where Gimli tells him Galadriel gives him three hairs instead of one is the first that comes to mind... and another is when Haldir (go Haldir!) arrives with the war party.

    *slaps forehead*

    I can't believe I didn't remember the smile when Gimli is telling him about Galadriel. I love that scene! I swear, I would forget my head if it wasn't attached to my shoulders. :rolleyes:

    I'd say when yuo see the Argonath (hehe) and at Amon Hen. I love watching the Fellowship beat the snot outta the Uruk-Hai, specially Boromir's last fight...wow...that'sa lotta Uruk-Hai, and when Pippen and Merry jump on the Uruk-Hai (EE) LOL. Moria was good, Weathertop was good too.
