    Definately needed Ellodan, Elrohir, and Halbarad. I liked the scenes with them and Aragorn, just because it showed that Aragorn really did have close friends and he wasn't just some vagabond hunting orcs by himself for the rest of his life. And yes, pathetic as it is, I cried when I found out Halbarad died, even though they didn't describe it - just mentioned him in the list of the dead after the battle of the Pellenor Fields.

    I also liked the tricky ranger-king transition Aragorn made in 2 very small scenes, both towards the end of RotK: one when Sam calls Aragorn "Strider" in front of a bunch of important Gondor people, and they kind of flip out about it. the other was when Butterbur finds out Strider is the king of Gondor and has a similar reaction to the nobles, but for different reasons. I'm not saying they should have been in the movie, but I think they definately added something to the books.

    Don't feel bad - he's only mentioned very, very briefly. It's when Aragorn is riding around with Theoden after Helm's Deep and the twins (Ellodan and Elrohir) come to meet him with the rangers to tell him to take the paths of the dead. Halbarad is sort of in charge of the group of rangers. The only reason I know this is because he was in a fan fic I wrote, and I've been in love with him (all 10 lines of him) ever since.

    Ok, I think I know who he is... just to be sure... Is it him who helps The king to put on his armor before helm's deep battle?

    No, no, thats Gamling. Halbarad doesn't appear in the movies. He is the leader of the Dunedain who arrive with Elladan and Elrohir. They all travel the Paths Of The Dead with Aragorn.

    My biggest problem was the way that Gimli, and Dwarves in general were treated. Their History has been one long slide into extinction, and goblin wars and so forth, yet Gimli is some kind of ridiculous comic character, and all the other dwarves are just beards in the background. Also, Gimli beat Legolas in the orc-killing game.

    Tom Bombadil! They didn't put Tom Bombadil! I thought he was an excellent character and he was so cheerful. And there was the part with the Wights! But I suppose that could be considered as Tom Bombadil. They didn't put much of Fatty Bolger either. I personally don't remember seeing him at all in the film. But my friend says he was shown once in the beginning. But he was a good character too and I wish I could have seen how they portray him.

    I was SO mad when they left out Dernhelm and immediately let you know it was Eowyn. I practically cried in the theater. That movie seriously made me mad! *face turns red and then goes back to normal* But I've learned to except it for what it is, and to not think of the book when watching it.
    Believe me, you don't want me to start talking about what else is missing from that movie. I could go on for hours.

    Haha, yea, the 'pass the palantir' scene, it WAS wrong, but I think maybe PJ was trying to emphasise on Aragorn's bravery or selflessness or something by grabbing the palantir away. :saurumon:
    BUT...didn't anyone miss the scene(s) where Aragorn heals Faramir/Eowyn/Merry? To me, it was Really important, there was a Whole chapter named 'The Houses of Healing' and we really see the significance of the phrase "The hands of a king are the hands of a healer." As I remember, (Iread the books quite a while ago...), this is where Aragorn recieves his name of Elessar and the first time people actually acknowledge that the king has returned, I mean, I wonder what the title of the books is? THE RETURN OF THE KING. *grumbles*
    Fine. I know its in the Extended Version or something but...*pouts*

    I think the Old Forest from the Fellowship of the Ring should've been in the movie.

    I think I missed the whole scene about the letter in the Prancing Pony. Also the whole scene were we meet Merry and Pippin, that was just annoying it made them seem stupid and ....like weak, or something.....

    We kind of do get a glimpse of it in the FOTR when Frodo looks into the mirror of Galadriel and sees the shire in shambles and all the hobbits enslaved.
