Corrected entry: When Frodo reveals his mithril coat in Moria, Gimli says 'You are full of surprises, Mr Baggins'. Merry and Pippin are standing behind him, looking over his shoulders. When the Fellowship stand together at the Council of Elrond, the top of the hobbits' heads only come up to Gimli's shoulders. (01:56:35)
Corrected entry: When Gandalf suggests that they take the Pass Of Caradhras the group is then seen walking together in a area that's completely covered in snow. The camera angle changes to a close-up and they are now in an area that has a number of rocks not covered by snow and when Frodo falls the group is not seen in the same formation. (01:38:22)MCKD
Corrected entry: At the very end of the movie, Frodo gets in the boat and moves away from the shore. Before Sam jumps into the water to chase after Frodo you can see that the water is perfectly still between the two hobbits, especially around the boat. The water became still extremely quickly, especially considering this is just a few seconds after Frodo pushes away from shore. It also seems like Frodo made it to the location in the water he's at faster than it seems possible. This is visible in both the theatrical and extended editions.
Corrected entry: In the scene on the bridge of Khazad-Dum, when Gandalf turns around to face the Balrog, after he yells "You shall not pass" and slams his staff on the ground, the very next clip of him his beard is tossed over his shoulder. Yet after the Balrog falls down and before he falls down his beard is not tossed over his shoulder.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Frodo walks in and picks up the ring, he walks over to Gandalf, who is sitting near the fireplace smoking, and he informs Frodo that the ring belongs to the young Hobbit. There is no table beside Gandalf. Gandalf has put his pipe down, holds out an envelope, Frodo drops the ring in it and Gandalf instantaneously seals it with melted wax and a seal at a table in front of him. (00:31:05)
Corrected entry: Rivendell was built by elves and lived in by elves, so wouldn't the balcony ledges be above the Hobbits heads? It seems a little odd that they seem just like normal balcony ledges to them.
Corrected entry: Gandalf (v/over): "We must walks over to Frodo and they watch Boromir sparring with the two other Hobbits. Pippin is wearing a white shirt and Merry is wearing a vest. Boromir is fighting with Pippind he says "Two, one, five. Good, very good." after he's done that short round with Pippin. Then he does a little fancy thing with his sword and turns to Merry. [You can identify Merry by his yellow vest] As Boromir fights with the hobbit, Merry moves backright shoulder near the camera, and then he disappears from view, all except his arm and his sword. Then the shot moves to Aragorn, with his pipe who says "Move your feet." The rhythm of the clanking swords continues without break but after the camera moves away from Aragorn, Boromir is suddenly fighting with Pippin again. Then Merry says "You look good Pippin." You can also tell that it changed from Merry to Pippin, because Merry's sleeves are larger/puffier that Pippin's and they are also longer. (00:05:25)
Corrected entry: In the part where Boromir gets hit by arrows three times, you see the first arrow hit just below his shoulder. If you look closely, you can see the second arrow hit him in the same exact place as the first, and the first arrow has somehow disappeared. In the next shot you can see one arrow in his shoulder and one lower down, even though the second arrow looked as though it hit him in the shoulder. (01:23:15)
Corrected entry: In the director's commentary, Peter Jackson says that for the prologue sequence in Gollum's cave they used tape to pull Ian Holm's (Bilbo's) skin tighter to look younger. They needn't, as even though that scene takes place many years before the story proper, because he then bore the Ring, as Gandalf later says, "You haven't aged a day." No-one who has the ring ages in any way. (00:07:20)Bob Blumenfeld
Corrected entry: When Frodo offers the ring to Aragorn at the end, we see a couple of shots of Frodo from Aragorn's perspective. We see the back of Aragorn's head, and he is a few inches taller than Frodo. But seconds later he is suddenly about two feet taller as he kneels down to examine the ring in Frodo's hand. (01:17:45)
Corrected entry: When the Black Rider confronts the wood-chopping hobbit and his dog and says "Shire. Baggins," the dog backs into the house supposedly in fear of the evil thing, but his tail is wagging. A terrified dog, even if barking furiously, would have his tail between his legs. (00:34:30)Bob Blumenfeld
Corrected entry: Balin's tomb is directly under a beam of sunlight. Yet, when the cave troll enters the chamber, why isn't it turned to stone when the sunlight hits it? (01:55:50)
