* AluminumChristmasTrees: "Second Breakfast" is a real thing in some European cultures, including England, which The Shire is based on. In real life, second breakfast is more of a mid-morning snack than a full meal (though given Hobbit culture, for them it probably ''is'' a full meal).

* ForgotToMindTheirHead: This was a hazard both in and out of universe when filming ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'':
** During the scene in ''The Fellowship of the Ring'' where Gandalf visits Bilbo in his hobbit hole, Gandalf, stooping, accidentally backs into a chandelier (as part of the script). His actor Creator/IanMcKellen then promptly turns and accidentally smacks his head on the roof, [[ThrowItIn an (unscripted) accident so funny that they left it in]].
** In the gag reel for ''Fellowship'', this happens also to the crew. Everyone's sitting inside the hobbit hole listening to directions, then when the meeting ends they all stand up and hit their heads on the roof. Then everyone falls to the floor.

* ShaggyDogStory: Subverted. Aragorn, Gimli, and Legolas run for days on end to catch up to the Uruk-hai... only to find them and the Hobbits apparently slaughtered [[CalvaryBetrayal by the Rohirrim Army]]. [[SherlockScan Aragorn puts the pieces together though and figures out that they escaped.]]

The theatrical versions were lengthy epics (the first two clocking in around 3 hours and the third 3 1/2 hours), and the "Extended Editions" (released before the succeeding movies) added at least another half-hour to each film's running time[[note]] Around 12 minutes of that extra run time is credits added for the fan community website[[/note]]. Unusual for such a thing, Creator/PeterJackson has stated that the Extended Editions are not an actual DirectorsCut (feeling the term would unfairly imply that he was unsatisfied with the theatrical releases) but merely a fan-friendly extension to enlarge the world of Middle-Earth and see what things they left out of the faster paced Theatrical Versions.

** [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in the books. It's noted that when the Istari were sent to Middle-Earth, the Valar specifically forbade them from wielding their full power in ''direct conflict'' with the Enemy. Hence why Gandalf sticks to whacking people with his staff in combat situations, but will use magic in other situations that don't constitute a direct assault.

* ProtagonistCenteredMorality: Aragorn doesn't seem to have any qualms about decapitating an unarmed herald who issues from the Black Gate to discuss Sauron's terms for the West's surrender. While the books had TheLawsAndCustomsOfWar in effect, here it was more like [[Film/TheFifthElement "Anyone else want to negotiate?"]]

* WhatBeautifulEyes: Close ups of Galadriel's eyes (especially in the first film) reveal that they're [[http://static.tumblr.com/6104e4e58927732e812faab5ae6f95db/mlwnkwn/b2In7zuki/tumblr_static_91ifyuwk7ysc040wc0o4ccc44.gif incredibly beautiful]] with dozens of points of eye shine in comparison to the single points of everyone else. According to the WordOfGod this was done deliberately (using christmas lights rigged up infront of the camera) to help portray Galadriel's unique 'otherworldliness' in that she's the only Elf left in Middle-earth who has been to the Undying Lands (she was born there) and seen the light of the Two Trees.
