Added DiffLines:

* GiantWallOfWateryDoom: In both cases the water is only "doom" to evil forces, and is actually the ''salvation'' to the good ones[[note]]Apparently in Tolkien's universe the element of water is good (also reinforced by how you can only reach the [[{{Heaven}} Undying lands]] by sailing over water), and the element of fire is bad (the evil Sauron and Saruman both heavily lean toward fire use and symbolism).[[/note]]
** In ''The Fellowship of the Ring'' when Arwen [[ElementalMagic conjures up]] the Bruinen river against the Black Riders (invoking a MassOhCrap out of them, but they can't outrun it). For added awesomeness, the waves are horse-shaped.
** In ''The Two Towers'' when

* YouAndWhatArmy: A corsair captain makes the mistake of asking Aragorn this in ''Return of the King''. The answer, of course, is the ArmyOfTheDead.

* ArmyOfTheDead: in the book, they're ghosts who accompany Aragorn to prove his kingship, inspire fear and awe, and ensure only stone cold badasses are brave enough to fight alongside him. In the film, they ''are'' the [[TheCavalry Cavalry]].



** The Army of the Dead later in the same battle.

* LampshadeHanging: Performed by Sam in one of the Osgiliath scenes in ''The Two Towers'' when he whines to Frodo that "by all rights, we shouldn't even ''be'' here!" - referencing the fact that the two characters never go to Osgiliath in the book.

* LampshadeHanging: Performed by Sam in one of the Osgiliath scenes in ''The Two Towers'' when he whines Towers''. His big speech to Frodo that "by all starts "By rights, we shouldn't even ''be'' here!" - referencing In-universe, this makes sense as a comment on what unlikely heroes they are, but it also references the fact that the two characters never go to Osgiliath in the book.



** The Osgiliath detour even gets a ContinuityNod:
---> '''Sam:''' By all rights we shouldn't even ''be'' here!

** The "Lothlórien" theme for the Elves (or at least Galadriel's Elves) is first heard as an ethereal, dreamy piece with generous amounts of CherubicChoir and OneWomanWail. In the second movie, though, it gets transformed into a [[{{Badass}} badass]] military march during the scene where the Elven army comes to the rescue at the Battle of Helm's Deep.
