    It sorta made me mad how there was no Saruman. I mean, comeon... I hope you see him die in the EE. Also, I think that they should have done the ruined shire scene. But I heard that PJ doesnt want to do such a depressing scene or somethin like that. Other than that, the movie kicked ass!

    I missed the Stuff having to do with Faramir and Eowyn. HEY for the Witchking being so powerful and Sauron's most powerful weapon he did take much to to distroy and did bearly any damage to Eowyn and Merry.

    I really liked it.
    SPOILER****
    To sorta show how much faith I had in PJ following the book when the thing happend at Mt Doom I was like oh my gosh he actually killed Frodo! but then it was good

    *SPOILER*
    I went to see the movie for the second time and I saw something very curious at the Black Gate, while Aragorn is giving his speech to his army, and waving around Anduril, there's black blood on his blade. Yet we haven't seen him kill anything, so I have a feeling we will see the Mouth of Sauron in EE.....

    Did anyone else notice how the horses at the black gate disappeared? 1 minute Aragorn & co are riding, the next they're on foot- wtf?

    Did it say he was human in the book? He certainly didn't look it in the game...

    I think that's because this is the most quickly paced of the movies.

    Maybe not. We do know that the scene with the Houses of healing are in the movie so she has to be hurt enough for her to be there.

    Look guys? You know it will all be in the 5 hour Special Extended Edition.. So patience still, the theatrical cut is the appetizer for that which is yet to come. So I'm sure that anything you believe was apparently 'overlooked' will be reinstated in the EE. Enough alreddy! Maintain your composure..

    Perhaps in the Mouth of Sauron scene they scare off. Only reason I can think of.

    I think thats it. But I really wish that in the Theater version you saw at least a glimpse of Saruman from a window or something, the way they skipped the whole thing made me almost shout at the screen,

    I have to agree. And are you really sure the EE is going to be 5 hours long?

    Another thing I missed was merry offering his services to Theoden, it was in the trailer too.
    I thought it was odd how the main characeter (apart from frodo) is gandalf! I thought it would be aragorn.

    Something else that I thought was weird was Gandalf's disapearing and reapearing staff. Rumors say it is broken with this encounter with the Witchking, and sure enough he doesn't have it when Denethor is trying to burn himself alive, or for the rest of the movie untill the scene at the ship. When him and frodo and company get on the boat, he has it again. Anyone else find that strange???
