Here are some Lord of the Rings random facts (Part I was always saddened that movie watchers don't see the Eomer/Aragorn friendship that is in the books. (Since it is Eomer that rides in with Gandalf on the third day)
Merry and Pippin are awesome friends! Ok, the entire Fellowship was made up of awesome friendships. But Merry and Pippin's was quite striking because they were very different from everyone else in the Fellowship - in the whole movie, really.
I’m not complaining about the movie at all, in fact I really loved it and understand that they couldn’t fit everything in, but sometimes I feel like they just made Merry and Pippin too stupid in the first Movie. <<< the movie version was WAY funnier!
Boromir was a jerk to Frodo before the Uruk-hai attacked that everyone hated him. That's why his death was so much sadder, he realized he was being selfish and then fought until his last breath to try and save Merry and Pippin. I cried.
