DELETED CLIPS FROM THE LORD OF THE RINGS TRILOGY.
Some things in this video that make it worth watching:
- Legolas and Arwen saying goodbye to each other as the Fellowship leaves Rivendell, by awkwardly touching each other’s faces.
- Homesick (heartbreaking) Merry and Pippin.
- Aragorn angsting at Gandalf, over whether Sauron can really be defeated.
- Shot of some orcs about to attack Lothlorien.
- Wounded Merry being hugged by Pippin in the middle of a battlefield.
- Oh look, a really fucking big army of orcs.
- A two-second shot of young Aragorn and Arwen being adorable in Lothlorien, where they first met.
- Eomer being sexy as fuck (and kind of confused-looking? Or maybe that’s just his face), riding through a forest somewhere.
- Legolas walking through a forest, which is not interesting unless you know this is the epilogue, and it’s supposed to be Ithilien.
But then where’s his dwarf?
- "If we do not trust to the strength of men, then we trust to the victory of Sauron."
- Eowyn. Is fucking awesome. And fights orcs in the caves under Helm’s Deep.
- Oh yeah, you know that Aragorn angstiness earlier, about Sauron? Turns out that in the original cut, that wasn’t a troll he was fighting at the gates of Mordor. It was literally Sauron. In the glowing, heavily-armored flesh.
- Legolas being repetitive (of course).
- Some Hobbits in suspenders.
- Aragorn doing a L’Oreal commercial in the snow.
- More stuff from the Council of Elrond. Apparently Sauron forged the Ring with some of his own blood inside it. Ew.
- Elrond does the English version of the “One Ring to Rule them All” rhyme. Yikes.
- Galadriel’s only appearance in the video, being ethereal as shit.
- Arwen in her Helm’s Deep costume and hairdo. I’m so glad that never actually became a thing.
- Oh wait I lied. Galadriel being even more ethereal. I didn’t think it was possible.
- Eeew. Holy shit. Faramir’s vision of Frodo becoming a creature like Gollum.
- Gimli’s epilogue scene! His magnifying glass reminds me of Balin.
- Eowyn being a motherfucking badass, orc-killing and yelling at the other women to run.
- Aragorn getting his ass personally kicked by Sauron.
- Aaaand a perfect ending: Some more Shieldmaiden kickassery by Eowyn.
