The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

Audio problem: When Sam, Frodo, and Gollum are in the forest of Ithilien, when Sam says "Can't you hear yourself, don't you know who you sound like?" the shots change and you can see Sam mouthing the words again.

Audio problem: When the Ents are attacking Isengard, just after the river has been released. Merry calls to Pippin "hold on!", but if you look at his lips, he says "Hang on!" The lip-syncing doesn't match.

Audio problem: First there is a wide shot of the Dead Marshes and Gollum says, "Soft and quick as shadows we must be." Then in the next shot as the camera starts to pan towards Sam, he begins to say, "I hate this place, it's too quiet..." When the camera first shows Sam, his mouth is not in sync with these particular words, "I hate this place," the words originally said on camera were changed during ADR. Extended DVD.

Super Grover

Audio problem: When Gimli says the line "Helms Deep! They flee to the mountains when they should stand and fight! Who will defend them if not their king?", Legolas, Aragorn, Gimli and Gandalf are walking towards the stables. Gimli's lips are not mouthing any of the lines. This is because it is the scale double of Gimli walking with the three other actors and John Rhys-Davies added the dialogue in ADR later.

Audio problem: On the Deeping Wall, Theoden says, "Draw all our forces behind the wall..." but Theoden's lips are moving before we hear him say those words.

Super Grover

Audio problem: When Gandalf rides off to find Eomer, Shadowfax isn't wearing any sort of harness. But just as Gandalf rides out of the stable past Legolas, you can hear a jingle, like a bridle would make.

Audio problem: When Gollum starts leading the hobbits, just after they let him go, he slips slightly on one slope and there is a sound of stones sliding down. But no stones are dislodged.

Quotes

Sam: It's like in the great stories Mr. Frodo, the ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were, and sometimes you didn't want to know the end because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end it's only a passing thing this shadow, even darkness must pass. A new day will come, and when the sun shines it'll shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you, that meant something even if you were too small to understand why. But I think Mr. Frodo, I do understand, I know now folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going because they were holding on to something.
Frodo: What are we holding onto, Sam?
Sam: That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo, and it's worth fighting for.

Mistakes

Gimli is lying with his face under the water, after jumping off the Deeping Wall and landing on the Uruk-hai. In the close-up, the right arm that grabs Gimli's shoulder to help him out of the water is Legolas' right arm. Yet, in the wide shot, suddenly it is Aragorn helping Gimli to his feet, not Legolas.

Trivia

John Rhys-Davies is missing the end of his middle finger on his left hand due to a farming accident as a child. The make-up artists made artificial, gelatin fingertips for him to wear in the movies. Davies one day, cut the tip in half, put 'blood' in it and closed it up. He went over to Peter Jackson (unaware of the gelatin tip) and said, "Boss, I've had an accident, look what happened". Jackson saw a small cut, but Davies bent the tip back and it split open, gushing. Nice.
