Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie, during the Prologue when Cate Blanchett gives a brief history of Middle Earth, near the end of her monologue she says "For none now live who remember", referring to the war of the Last Alliance, this is in contradiction to two major facts of the story. The first being that the elves are immortal, therefore at least some of them would still be present at this time. The second is that Elrond is clearly shown fighting in the battle, and later he vividly recalls to the Fellowship, at the meeting in Rivendell, how he begged Isildur to cast the Ring into the fire of Mount Doom. Proving not only was he present but he can also remember the Last Alliance.
Corrected entry: Does it strike anyone else as odd that the members of the Fellowship have to tap at the walls outside Moria (extended DVD) to try to find the gates, when the gates have an enormous great tree at either side of them - the two holly trees which are later ripped up by the Watcher and used, along with stones and other rubble, to block the entrance. In the book they never had any trouble finding the door, only making it appear; the holly trees, which were 'larger than any trees of holly that Frodo had ever seen or imagined,' and stood 'like sentinel pilars at the end of the road,' marked the spot even from quite a distance.
Corrected entry: This is found on the extended version, the scene where Frodo is offering Galadriel the One Ring, she moves towards him with her right hand extended. After her morphing scene she regains composure and tells Frodo that she, too, is a Ring Bearer and then extends her right hand again - this time showing her ring. Where was the ring when she extended her hand the first time?
Corrected entry: When Bilbo Baggins is leaving Bag End after his birthday party, he picks ups his backpack. The shot shows that his backpack is a black leather hiking type. However, when he's at the door, the backpack is fabric, and much thinner.
Corrected entry: At the end of the film, when Boromir is racing up the hill to the rescue of Merry and Pippin, you simply see his dark clothing as he climbs. Then the camera cuts away, returning to a shot of Boromir still coming up the hill, only this time the horn of Gondor is suddenly evident, flip-flopping wildly with his every step.
Corrected entry: When Gandalf first approaches the village on the cart, a water-powered mill can be seen slowly turning in an anti-clockwise direction. The water in the foreground stream appears to be travelling from right to left which would make the mill turn in a clockwise direction. However, in the very next scene (shot looking across the bridge at the same mill) the water is clearly stationary because the leaves on the surface of the stream are not moving. So either the mill is turning the wrong way or it should not be moving at all.
Corrected entry: When Borimir is about to die and Strider is running towards him, one of the supposedly dead Orcs lifts his head to watch Strider run by and then promptly lays his head down again.
