Continuity mistake: Merry and Pippin were bound when taken by the Uruk-hai, and the bonds weren't cut until after they managed to escape during the fight. Yet, when the horse almost crashed down on Pippin, he had his arms spread out up near his face, not bound, even though they weren't cut until later. In the next shot, his hands are bound again.

Frodo and Sam capture Gollum and have him take them to Mordor. They are captured by Faramir, but he lets them go. Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli go to Fangorn Forest in pursuit of Merry and Pippin and find Gandalf, who has been reborn. At the Battle of Helm's Deep, all looks lost until Gandalf and the Riders of Rohan charge from nowhere into the Uruk-hai and kill them. Merry and Pippin are taken care of by Treebeard the Ent. The Ents decide to attack Saruman for killing trees. They wash away all his work and renders him helpless. Arwen decides there is no reason for her to stay in Middle-earth, so she begins to leave.
Trivia: During post-production, one of the effects technicians had to transport the first effects shots to a special location, since their computer could not send them all the way to Peter Jackson. After storing them in his iPod, he walked out into the street and was targeted by two thugs. After some serious sprinting, he managed to reach a hotel and save WETA's visual effects from falling into criminal hands.
Question: When Pippin and Merry are with the orcs (or uruk-hai or whatever they're called) one of the orcs keeps insisting on eating them. What does he mean when he says, "Do they give good sport?" And then he does this weird thing with his tongue to which Merry looks at him oddly. I don't know what he meant by that. (00:29:45)
