Contents: Return of the king.
I was really ALSO very happy about Legolas and i was really dying at the end when he came into the room in Rivendell and i liked that last part when he's there at Aragorn's coronation
I felt really bad for Pippin wen Denethor was eating like a pig, i wanted to hug him :( :(
So, i guess you could call this one of the best movies (well, LoTr is the best movie series to me) and hope u get a chance to watch it and watch all my fave Legolas part (BLISS!) and, yeaaaa...
I was glad that the whole rulers are healers thing wasn't in it cause that would've been really awkward to watch.
I was also glad that Eowyn was a lot less stupid in the movie, because all she wanted to do in the book was impress Aragorn and make him like her. which is really dumb of her.
and god the kissing was OBNOXIOUS
All in all good movie, but not the best.
LOTR: Return of the King won Best Picture and Best Director in 2003. It won a total of ELEVEN Academy Awards that year! Which is amazing for a film, let alone a fantasy film.
The extra footage on the extended versions of the trilogy, as well as the TON of extra footage on the DVD sets is so much fun to watch. I love the backstory, and hearing what the crew went threw as they filmed three movies simultaneously.
Let's start with Quidditch. A small, golden, flying ball, called the Snitch, is let loose. This is the OneRing. The Seekers (one on each team) are trying to claim the Snitch for themselves. Whoever gets it, wins. Frodo is the Seeker for the good guys, and Sauron is the Seeker for the bad guys. But we have to stretch this analogy because Frodo already has the Ring but hasn't won. He just has to keep Sauron from getting it by taking it to a volcano in Sauron's backyard and destroying it. Sauron just needs to get the Ring to win. But it's pretty close. So the Seekers are the only ones that matter, really. Getting the Snitch/Ring is worth a gazillion points. They are the endgame. But. This does not three movies make, or eight in the case of Harry Potter. So.
We have everyone else. In Quidditch, there's a few Chasers, a few Beaters, and one Keeper on each team. They stay occupied by beating each other up with clubs and balls until the Seekers win the game. There are points involved, but they don't really matter because they can't surpass the endgame of Ring-getting. I see Aragorn as a Keeper for good, and Saruman as Keeper for bad. They're relatively more important than the other peons, but only because the writer said so. The only thing that's important for 'Everyone Else' to do is stay alive so that there's some people left to hang out when one side finally wins.
I think that LotR and Quidditch would work a lot more sensibly if each side just went after the Snitch/Ring as a whole group. Yes, it would be constant chaos, and the Ring is supposedly the most corrupting thing ever, but I'm reasonably sure it would condense these stories down to one movie, max.
