Question: I know this might seem kind of silly, but I'm just curious - if the Ring makes its wearer invisible, why didn't it make Sauron invisible?
Question: This question is for the Australian release of the DVD. On the cover, it says in the Special Features menu that there is an easter egg. Since there are no easter eggs listed for this movie, does anyone know what it is?
Question: When Michelangelo is in the village and wakes up in the shed for the first time, there are some kids that run in front of the camera. As they move we hear a very distinct sound effect of them giggling. Like the Wilhelm, this giggle sound effect is played in tons of movies and even commercials. Any idea what it is called?
Question: Does anyone have any insight as to where all the people in the Village came from? I understand the motivation in being there as expressed by the elders, who know of the outside world and are escaping it, but what about everyone else who seems ignorant of that other world? The group scenes show at least a hundred people there. Were they all brought as children and raised with the stories of the creatures to keep them out of the woods? Seems like a lot of children for 8 or 10 elders to bring. Are all the adults, not just the elders, "in-the-know", having brought their children and kept them deceived? Any thoughts, or official insight, would be appreciated.
Question: When Storm is talking to Nightcrawler about his scar art, and the conversation is led up to anger, why did she walk out of the room just after he asked her how she could be so angry and beautiful at the same time? Did she have to do something, or was she just leaving for the sake of leaving? (Although if a guy told me I was beautiful, I would stay around...).
Question: When the Rohirrum surround Legolas, Gimli, and Aragorn, Eomer gets offended when Gimli says, "Give me your line, horsemaster, and I'll give ya mine." In the book, Gimli says that Eomer has little wit which causes him to reply by saying the bit about Gimli's height. Why didn't Peter Jackson leave that line in. It would have made much more sense as to why Eomer lost his temper.
Question: I would really like to know - is this picture of Saruman definitely his final fate?(http://www.councilofelrond.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=My_eGallery&file=index&do=showpic&pid=5639&orderby=hitsD). I thought that Wormtongue was going to stab Saruman on Orthanc in the extended ROTK and does it not seem a bit graphic for a LOTR film?
