What scenes did you folks absolutely love in the book that you think should have been included in the movie? I'm not talking about scenes that merely weren't there, I mean scenes that weren't there, but perhaps should have been there. For example, many people complain about the lack of song and poetry in the movie, or about the omition of Tom Bombadil. In all honesty, I think these elements worked wonderfully in the book but would have made the movie drag, and really contributed nothing to the story as far as the movie goes. Tom Bombadil is a prime example of this. Think about it: in the book by this point, the small party of hobbits have already been chased by Ringwraiths, attacked by Old Man Willow, and a slurry of other dark and treacherous events. Tom Bombadil lended a bright sunny spot to break up all the tension. In the movie, however, things are much quicker paced, and therefore Bombadil is not needed. I, myself, would have loved to see the scene where Sam chucks an apple at, who was it?...Bill Ferny?...and pegs him square in the face. Or, perhaps, the scene involving the Barrow-Wights would have been a nice addition. The only problem here is that if the Wights were included, they couldn't have had a clean cut of Bombadil, since he indeed saved them. What are your thoughts?
