Warning LOTR-most cringeworthy moment

Ok guys...I think we had enough of "Best moments" or "favorite moments" in LOTR. Now this is the thread where you could post what you think are the scenes in the LOTR movies that made you cringe. No offense to anyone. wink

I'll start off.

1.My biggest LOTR peeve has got to be Legolas' talent for stating the bloody obvious. "A diversion." Well, dduuuuhhh!??!? When I saw the movie for the first time, the people around me were either saying duh! or laughing their ass off in that remark. And "The horses are restless, and the men are quiet." "Neeeeiiiiiigh!" and "The red sun rises, blood has been spilled this night." Eehh.. who are you talking to? Just run, dammit.

I mean, no offense, I like Legolas and I know that he should be one of the deep characters who always utter words of wisdom but can't they give him a line that is less cheesy and not stating the absolutely blatantly in-your-face obvious?

2. The search light Eye of Sauron. I mean, go figure.

3. The fish-eating. It made me cringe because I was caught off-guard. I mean, he caught a fish, and then a quarter second later, Gollum's very ugly and drooling mouth has been shot up-close. sick

4. When Frodo sees Gandalf at the end and uttering a very long and slow mo "Gaannddaaaallff??!"and both start a weird sort of slow-mo laughing. The subsequent scenes made up for those though. But whenever I watch the movie again, I always want to cover my ears in that scene that I've stated.

What are yours?

I would have to agree with the 'A diversion' line but the other lines of Legolas' I thought they were cool. "The horses are restless, the men are quiet." He's more or less acknowledging this for himself really.
"A red sun rises, blood has been spilled this night." I think this was probably my favorite line of Legolas' because well he's an elf, he's extremely wise and he just has to suddenly noticed these things, and prepare what could've happened.

laughing The search light for Sauron, that was hilarious....

Okie, I didn't think that the shot where Gollum's biting into the fish was necessary because...argh, ok we know he caught the fish and he's obviously gonna eat it, and we DON'T know how he eats it now....

The very slow Gandalf...I think that was perfect because it shows that Frodo just now realizes that Gandalf's alive, he's okie, and throughout the 2 movies, Frodo and Sam kept thinking that Gandalf's gone, and it just showed this great grief of that rise off Frodo's shoulders.

And also it shows that the Fellowship has come together, and they all accomplished their quest one way or another and it's just beautiful how PJ did this. *sighs* The only issue I had was the Gollum biting fish scene.

Okay I do have a few probs with the movies:

I don't agree with the Leggy point u have made. I mean in the books nearly all of those lines when they are running are spoken. Yes they are put into more of a conversation, but they are in the books. If i am not mistaken tho Leggy does take some of Aragorns lines from the book. I do wish they had added more dialoge tho in the EE.....

Okay for my probs:
sauron's search light eye:What? I have gotten use to it tho.

nasty fish eating scene: could have been cut!

Denethor flying over the edge of Minas Tirith: I dn't know why but it just seems over dramatic to me.

I thought i had more but it is late, and i am brain dead right now!

yeah...I agree that they were in the book. As you'll notice I didn't include the scene where Legolas said "They run as if the very whips of their masters are behind them", I didn't really include it because I wasn't really bothered by it and I know that that particular line was in the book and Orlando's delivery of that line was alright. What really got to me was what I've said about the red sun rises. I don't know if it was because of Orlando's delivery, or the pan of the camera, or because of the sudden change of scene from Pippin being almost crushed by a horse to Legolas suddenly stopping from his tracks, or maybe because of the line itself, or maybe it's just really me. But whatever it is, I didn't really like that scene. smile

The thing I disliked was nearly ALL legolas's comments were over-dramatic. Every time he said them, he stopped, and stared off into the distnce, looking pretty...


"There is a fell voice on the air."

"Blood has been spilt this night."

"The white wizard approaches."


I'm sure there are a lot more than these three, but these are the the ones that come to mind with him standing and staring off into the distance.

i hardly agree with alot of these comments and most of mine are different.

like all those legolas things, u gotta remember the movie is also made for those who havnt read the books and to make it the least confusing as possible sometimes they had to make things obvious

same with the sauron searchlight, it was good to show people wat was happening incase they didnt know, im mean it might not be that obvious,

but anyway mine are

-when gimli cries in the first movie

(um i thougt i had more but forgot, so much for that)

but otherwise me thinks u guys are to picky, let it flow and think how it would look if u hadnt read the book

I think for the eye, if there had to be a light at all, it should have covered a greater area at one time and be a less intense light. Or, it should have cast a cold shadow over the area it was searching instead.

And I think it should have moved around more slowly. If it was moving slowly, it would appear more ominoussmile

Sorry PJ, I've just told you how to change your film! Just my opinion!big grin

the whole slow-mo sequence was hillarious- and really strange

i thought legolas' lines were alrite- but nobody listened to him in the FOTR when he told them to not stay in one place and whenever he did say it they were attacked

when denethor died dat was also hillarious

i didnt find this cringeworthy cos i loved this sequebce but wot was frodo going on about when he told sam near the end that he couldnt remember wot it was like lying naked in the dark!!!

Oh, the fun I have taking the micky out of the films!

Last time I watched FotR with my dad, we counted how many 'suggestive' looks we could see. I think we counted around 17 from the moment the hobbits met Strider up until the Midgewater Marshessmile

stick out tongue suggestive looks thorughout the films is rivaled only by the books big grin

gollum the pervert

When Gollum returned to the Hobbits, he found they were sleeping peacefully in each other's arms.

Gollum looked at them. A strange expression passed over his lean hungry face. The gleam faded from his eyes, and they went dim and grey, old and tired. A spasm of pain seemed to twist him, and he turned away, peering back up towards the pass, shaking his head, as if engaged in some interior debate. Then he came back, and slowly putting out a trembling hand, very cautiously he touched Frodo's knee -- but almost the touch was a caress. For a fleeting moment, could one of the sleepers have seen him, they would have thought that they beheld an old weary hobbit, shrunken by the years that had carried him far beyond his time, beyond friends and kin, and the fields and streams of youth, an old starved pitiable thing.
The Two Towers: "The Stairs of Cirith Ungol," p. 324
