Corrected entry: Numerology comes into fruition in this movie a lot. The number three comes a number of times. There are of course the three heroes, Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli and the ring party consisting of Sam, Frodo and Gollum. When Sam and Frodo are rescued there are the three eagles which come to rescue them. At the end of the film it is stated that the time of the elves is over and thus their three rings are cast aside for the time of man. Also Sam's house is the number three.Tobin OReilly
Corrected entry: In the scene where Aragorn is saddling up to enter the Paths of the Dead, he straps Anduril on to Brego. When Eowyn approaches and the camera shot changes from Aragorn's right to his left, Anduril is clasped under Aragorn's left arm. When the shot changes back to the right view, Anduril is again strapped on Brego.
Corrected entry: Right after the dead guys clear the battlefield, there are a few shots of the heroes and it is very smoky in the background. Through the smoke we can see rolling hills in the near background. The problem is, these are not supposed to be there, when we see all the overhead shots, it is an enormous flat plain with a river and a city, etc. It just doesn't match up.Sol Parker
Corrected entry: Throughout the three films, Mount Doom is always shown spewing lava from its summit. This suggests that the lava is full to the brim. When Frodo and company reach the mountain, however, there's a large, open door leading into the center of the mountain. There is no evidence that lava has ever flowed through the door. Once inside, the lava level is hundreds of feet below them, but moments before lava was still spewing out the very top of the mountain.Jon Nicholas
Corrected entry: In the scene at the top of the Tower of Cirith Ungol, Sam says something to the shirtless Frodo like, "We better find you some clothes Mr. Frodo". They leave the tower wearing orc armor; however, within the next few scenes the hobbits shed their armor only to reveal Frodo wearing his original clothes.
Corrected entry: In the final scenes of the movie, when Frodo is writing in his book you can see that it is written in fairly large calligraphic script on parchment paper. The final book is too thin to contain both "There and Back Again" (The Hobbit) and "The Lord of the Rings". The text is larger than book print, parchment is thicker than paper, and my copy of the Hobbit is thicker than that book.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Frodo is helped by Galadriel in Shelob's lair (in the "dream sequence") he lays on the ground. In his hair on HIS right side (viewers' left) is what appears to be some clovers or leaves or grass. The camera cuts to Galadriel then back to Frodo, the thing in his hair is gone. The camera cuts to her again and back to Frodo, the thing is back in his hair.
