** Samwise somehow manages to have this with the One Ring, of all things. "YOU! Ooo, I can feel you [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything throbbing with anticipation!]]"

* HellIsThatNoise: The Nazgûl's screams are very unnerving.

* HellIsThatNoise: The Nazgûl's screams are very unnerving. And they're actually a largely unaltered human performance, from none other than Peter Jackson's wife Fran Walsh.

* NeverLiveItDown: While more of a BaseBreaker than [[TheScrappy a scrappy]], Frodo is often accused and criticized for doin' nothing but get his ass saved for the trouble he's in. Many, however, tend to forget that he chose to bear the weight of the One Ring which is physically and mentally wearing him down throughout the entire trilogy. The results would no doubt be the same if another person were to take up the task.

* Narm: Some lines in the book come off as rather narmy, like "praise them with great praise" and "their joy was like swords".

*** ...which is an excellent example of YMMVism, since depending on your view of marriage this can be considered highly appropriate.

** Sure, [[TheCorruption Frodo's giving into the power of the Ring at Mount Doom]] is a sight to despair at. But it's ruined by the...well...[[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything gesture]] he's making when he puts it on. [[https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/c8/58/81/c85881587e950782c820ba941c00e299.gif The dirty look doesn't help either]].

** "Crebain from Dunland!" ItMakesSenseInContext, but since that context isn't elaborated on in the film, it just seems like a really weird way for Legolas to yell "Uh oh, ''birds!''"

Added DiffLines:

** Some of the methods used to depict the height differences between the main characters are more easily noticeable than others. In particular the very cheap method of rarely showing their faces at the same time, so you see Elijah wood and the back of a seven foot tall scale double dressed as Gandalf; then the camera cuts to a different angle and you see Ian Mckellen talking to a four foot tall scale double dressed as Frodo. Once it's pointed out to you that the character with their back to the camera isn't the same person who plays them when facing the camera, it becomes very hard not to notice the wigs and body proportion differences between cuts.

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Sauron]] is a demonstration of how those who were [[WellIntentionedExtremist once noble]] can [[TheDarkSideWillMakeYouForget fall to great evil]]. Sauron was a once noble Maia who was swayed to Morgoth's side. Over time, Sauron's noble intentions for the world were replaced with vanity and lust for power. In the First Age, Sauron convinced a man to betray his comrades, showing him a vision of his beloved wife...once the man did what Sauron asked, Sauron revealed she was already dead and had his hapless pawn tortured to death as he [[ExactWords had promised to reunite them.]] Upon capturing the hero Beren and his companions, Sauron placed them in his dungeons where he allowed his werewolves to slowly pick the group off, one by one, to torment the survivors. After the defeat of his master, Sauron fled to Numenor, assuming the fair form of Annatar, the Bringer of Gifts and seduced Numenor towards darkness and evil until it was a Morgoth-worshipping theocracy that practiced human sacrifice. This was an act so unholy, Eru Illuvatar, the equivalent of God, stepped in to destroy Numenor. Even then, Sauron was not done, and tricked the other races with the Rings of Power, forging his master ring to enslave all that lived. In the Third age, he embarked on a genocidal war for conquest, seeking only to feed his lust for domination and megalomania.
