    The cut of Tom Bombadil and fair lady Goldberry from the film was definitely heart breaking to me, but I sort of got my wish in seeing them in the FOTR video game.

    I would have liked to see the barrow downs in the movie, that chapter is very cool

    I understand why they didn't include the Scouring of the Shire in the movie, but I admit I found it disappointing. It is unrealistic that the enemy's forces would not have reached the Shire, when the rest of Middle-Earth has been affected by them. I think it would have shown that hobbits don't have perfect lives either, and reinforced what Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin had gone on their quest in the first place for - to protect their home. It was a shame they didn't include it.

    Got to be The Scourging of the Shire for me. Though I miss it less in the extended version for obvious reasons.

    I really miss the scenes with the Old Forest and Tom Bombadil.
    Also i really miss the Scouring of the Shire! That was the one of the awesomest scenes of the book!

    I agree on Scouring of the Shire... but Bombadil... You might hate me for this, but I wouldn't miss him even in the book...

    The scouring of the Shire is something I love. Bombadil would have been great, but too much for the film, although he was mixed with Treebeard in the extended edition.

    The whole darker feeling the book had. I would of course like to see Bombadil and the Wights but understand movie time restrictions. But the dark feeling, especially in the last book, I just felt wasn't there in almost all the scenes.

    Rangers of the North. Albeit I can understand the need of sensationalizing the whole film via a dead men hijack. :(
