* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tzx6d5h-5Mg Where is the horse, and the rider? Where is the horn that was blown? They have passed like rain on the mountains, like wind in the meadow. The days have gone down in the west, behind the hills... into shadow.]] The atmosphere of this simple scene, devoid as it is of action, makes my hair stand on end without fail.

** Gimli manages to pull a short, but awesome comeback at Saruman. As the wizard tried to enchant Rohirrim and Théoden, he simply stated how much of a nonsense it was. That he was the only one, with Gandalf, to stay unmoved by Isengard's honey is a subtle reminder that the race of Dwarves is not easily enthralled indeed, would it be by Sauron and his rings or Sarumans or his words.
---> It was Gimli the dwarf who broke in suddenly. ‘The words of this wizard stand on their heads,’ he growled, gripping the handle of his axe. ‘In the language of Orthanc help means ruin, and saving means slaying, that is plain. But we do not come here to beg.

* Something the movies didn't play that well: After destroying the Ring, people start praising and hailing Frodo and the Hobbits left and right, acclaiming them as the ones who saved Middle-Eath. The common folk of Middle-Earth, many of whom have never seen or heard of them before, now KNOW who they are and what they did.

** The same when Galadriel is offered the Ring. The Bakshi film manages to keep it subtle and frightening. The Jackson film? A CGI mess.

** The Riders stalking Frodo and company? The Jackson film copied the Bakshi film nearly shot-for-shot.
** Some scenes the Bakshi version was far superior to the Jackson film include the moment when Bilbo is tempted by the Ring. The animated film puts the scene in Frodo's POV, as he sees Bilbo as a pathetic, grasping creature -- and Frodo pulls his hand back to ''strike him'', before Bilbo breaks down crying and apologizes. In the Jackson film, a CGI mess and Frodo has no real emotion.

** That fight is technically a fight between a demon and an angel. It is exactly what you'd expect of that context.

** And in the Extended Edition, after she downs the Witch King Eowyn is lying on the ground, arm broken and visibly freaked out by what she just did. Then she spots the Orc captain coming her way, and [[{{Determinator}} starts crawling, going for a weapon.]]

** A minor one for Pippin during that sequence, leaping without hesitation from the back of Shadowfax onto a burning funeral pyre, heaving Faramir out of the flames, and putting him out before he can burn to death.

*** While Aragorn and Gimli's BackToBackBadasses moment on the causeway is buying time to shore up the main door to the keep, the manage to get some more ladders up, guided by ropes to prevent them being knocked down. Legolas snipes the support rope on one before it can be landed on the wall, and the ladder's landing looks to have squashed about forty orcs right there. Perhaps Legolas was only counting the ones he killed directly?



* ''The Two Towers'' gets one of the most awesome of all. The last charge of Helm's Deep's defenders is rushing from the gates into the Uruk-Hai army, and even though they're all being Badass, it still looks like they're lost. Then Gandalf's words get echoed, the sun rises... and Gandalf and Éomer appear on the ridge. They proceed to have the following exchange:
