I miss the Howard Shore music, but love the compilation.

Wow! Thanks for that. :) I've let myself get too critical of those films over the years and forgot the good points.

That was wonderful.

A strong reminder of how much the music makes the movie, too.

But... isn't this the 17th anniversary? 15th of the day it ended, I suppose.

It's a bit odd to not use the film's soundtrack but still, that was lovely. :)

Some day, some person will make a perfect, seamless fan edit that removes exactly and only all the annoying, unnecessary little things I personally dislike throughout the movies (and bring back the FOTR TE intro!), and I will finally be able to watch these wonderful movies in total piece. On the very large and fancy TV I will surely own by then. :D

I feel very attacked right now. :P

But well said nonetheless :love: There will always be differences of opinion, and feelings of "I wish that part was different" no matter the book or movie or whatnot.

Exactly, yov! :D

I wonder if it would be worthwhile to make a rough edit just for myself- chopping out the worst bits- and then watching it in a foreign language that I don't understand. That way I'd still get the stunning visuals and the perfect music...... I could even put in subtitles of what each character ought to have said.

Or, you know.... I could just read the books again! :blackeye: :P

I want to watch these again now. That was a wonderful 5-minute compilation. Maybe after our company goes home. . . .

What a frustrating website - there seems to be no way to find out what the edits actually do!
