    Where Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas arrive at the border of Fangorn Forest, Aragorm starts to piece the puzzle together. He says something like "A hobbit lay here...and the other". Then it shows Pippin on his back on the ground with a horse rearing up over him. Look closely at his hands - THEY ARE UNTIED!! Only later does he cut the ropes.

    Really? I hadn't noticed. I'll have to look for that the next time I watch it...

    I think there was a thread about mistakes, it had a link I think to a site with a bunch of mistakes. There was hundreds, I guess no ones perfect.

    My fave is Éomer's sword falling out of its scabbard! I burst out laughing in the theater!

    Eomer's sword falling out is great! I question I have always had involves Gimli.

    When Haldir (FOTR) speaks to Aragorn and Legolas in elvish, Gimli tells to speak a language everyone can understand, which I took to mean that Gimli does not understand elvish.

    At the battle of Helm's Deep Aragorn, in elvish, shouts "Ladders" and Gimli responds to this with "Good." If he really does not understand elvish, how does this work.

    Silly little question, but I have always wondered.

    maybe he has learned a bit of Elvish in the meantime, or he guessed the meaning, or he has seen the ladders, or he can speak Elvish, and meant the Hobbits when he said to speak a tongue everyone understands...

    Perhaps legolas learned Gimli some elvish.. I mean, those two are beginning to be really good friends!
    But hey, good luck teaching Gimli anything..:)

    lol Chrissy

    And I bet you all knew this but when the cameras get a close up on Legolas when they first show Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli, Legolas's eyes are brown.

    In TTT when Pippen and Merry were laid down on the ground by the Uruks, take a look at the cut above Merry's right eye. During the Rohan onslaught, the cut gets moved over to his left eye...then back again when he's in Fanghorn Forest.

    Gotta watch Eomer's sword now...but on the new extended edition. :draught:

    in general, i didn't like his (pj's) level of artistic licence that he took was overkill, i was tearing it apart after i came out of the theater (i am more than a die hard tolkien freak [was before the movie hype and a total purist at that]) lets put it this way, my movie, if i ever made one probably wouldn't have too many huge fans, because it would've been as true to the books as possible.
