He actually slid down on an uruk shield... Bloom broke a rib from falling from a horse also... Legolas is much more coordinated then Bloom lol.

Sophie710 | 75 comments did you know that Gollum (Andy Serkis) was nominated for best supporting actor? Unfortunately, he didn't win...

Sophie710 | 75 comments There's also an animated version of the movie. Very weird. Boromir has this viking hat and something very strange happened to Sam's face.

message 12: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth (elizabethnovak) I hate the animated version, they all look so weird.

Queen Susan the Gentle (highqueensusanofcairparavel) Yeah, but where are Aragorn and Boromir's pants?

message 14: by Sophie710 (new)

Sophie710 | 75 comments i know! lol! and they don't pronounce the S in Saruman. He goes by Aruman.

Queen Susan the Gentle (highqueensusanofcairparavel) Ack. I never noticed that.

L (I would like to briefly mention how pleased i am to have found this group, dedicated to an outstanding writer & my favourite book/ films of all-time 'the lord of the rings')

In regards to The Two Towers i would have to say that this film was both exciting and full of tension, as one delves back into the realm of Middle-Earth continuing the story of the members of the fellowship as they continue thier journey.
It was certainly interesting to watch the three seperate parts; one with Frodo and Sam, one with Merry and Pippin and the other with Legolas, Gimli and Aragorn as the fellowship split up in its quest to save Middle-Earth. Directed fantastically by Peter Jackson i enjoyed this film even more so than the first, especially as i got chance to encounter the Ents and thier confrontation with Saruman. Rohan is also spectacular seen for the first time, looking majestic at the top of the mountain and of course the battle of Helms Deep is truly epic...apsolutly gripping.

I could ramble on all day, but i have to say that out of the three films that make-up the rendition of the book this one has to be my favourite.

Lótë (Iris) (irisflowerpoppyseed) | 6 comments I've seen it so many times. It is a great movie. I loved being introduced to all the new characters and stories.

 Celia (menel-char-pippin-ronald-sasha) The battle of Helms Deep in my opinion has to be the best battle out of all of them. I have the movie at home and sometimes when I don't have enough 're to watch the entire thing...I'll just kind of skip to there and watch the battle. It's not only the battle it's just everything that happens like throughout the battle...I think that Peter Jackson did an outstanding job capturing what each character was feeling...and not just during this one battle or this book...throughout the entire trilogy.
