After the rebels have been brutally overpowered by the Empire on their newly established base, Luke Skywalker takes advanced Jedi training with Master Yoda, while his friends are pursued by Darth Vader as part of his plan to capture Luke.
Luke Skywalker joins forces with a Jedi Knight, a cocky pilot, a wookiee and two droids to save the universe from the Empire's world-destroying battle-station, while also attempting to rescue Princess Leia from the evil Darth Vader.
While Frodo and Sam, now accompanied by a new guide, continue their hopeless journey towards the land of shadow to destroy the One Ring, each member of the broken fellowship plays their part in the battle against the evil wizard Saruman and his armies of Isengard.
When Aragorn kicks the helmet after he thinks Merry and Pippin are dead he lets out a scream. This scream is genuine. Peter Jackson wanted Viggo Mortensen to kick the helmet as close to the camera as possible, but on the fourth attempt he breaks two toes. He lets out the scream in response to the pain but doesn't tell them to cut, so the scream you hear is real. See more »
While on their way to Helm's Deep, Gimli is telling tales to Eowin and Aragorn in order to while away the long hours of the trip. At several points, however, you can see the direction of the battle ax's head change from blade forward to blade backwards then forwards again, all within mere seconds of each other. See more »
[Sméagol is sobbing]
Sméagol... Why does he cry, Sméagol?
Cruel men hurts us. Master tricksed us.

No, not it's business. Leave us alone.
Filthy little hobbites. They stole it from us.
What did they steal?

From the beginning to the very end, the Lord of the Rings trilogy is interesting and enjoyable. The books and the movies alike grasp one's attention as if they were real. You, the reader or viewer, can sense the pain of the characters, their emotions. The trilogy is truly powerful on screen. The second movie, however, I believe has something the first and third are missing; it feels like a bridge connecting two great islands. There is something unique about it that cannot easily be described. Metaphorically, the first movie is, say, a soldier. The third movie is the path home from war. And the second movie is the act of coming home because it contains the obstacles that must be passed through before achieving the goal. Although not 100% loyal to the written trilogy, the movies are done in such a way that the mainstream audience and LOTR fans from before the movies came out can say they were enjoyable and well made.
