I know you usually don't do requests and not a lot of people would be asking about this movie because it's fairly underrated but it would make my day if you did an EGA on Bad Times at the El Royale I loved this movie and I think you might like the movie 😊. I hope you had a great Christmas and a Happy New Year!

A: Isn't it sad to think that when Frodo wakes up after the eagles rescue him and Sam, he probably thinks he's dead for some length of time, because the first person he sees is Gandalf, and he thinks Gandalf's dead? B: When he wakes up, they're not in the place the Fellowship was formed. They're not in Rivendell, they're in Minas Tirith. It may not be that way in the books, but it is in this movie. The set design clearly indicates it if nothing else, but there is no logic in going all the way back to Rivendell only to return for Aragorn's coronation.

Completely agree that each member not only of the fellowship butts other major and minor characters had vital parts to play, like threads in a tapestry. There is no one hero in this story. Without the actions of each of the players, that thread would be pulled and likely unraveled the whole thing. Faramir showing his quality, each beacon lighter being observant and not sleeping on the job (literally could have slept long enough for the previous beacon to have burnt out), each soldier doing his job . . .

10:32 . . . The way Gandalf waves his hand, like trying to release Aragorn from a spell or assessing whether or not he was under one or had been swayed by Sauron.
Just before that, Aragorn had lowered his sword a bit and was listening to Sauron (basically trying to seduce him to the dark side). He turns toward Gandalf and the company, a _slight_ and momentary look of doubt on his face, a _definite_ look of doubt/worry/concern on Gandalf’s (and Legolas’) face and that hand wave (thinking oh no, did he finally succumb to the will of Sauron / the One Ring? Everything he’s fought for and endured now stripped away? Has the fear he had of not being able to withstand the weakness in his bloodline actually won out now that we’re all here in a last-ditch effort to give Frodo a chance, or die in honor of how far he got?)
Then, I'm sure if the above is true, an incredible relief as Aragorn smiles and says, "For Frodo." Aragorn resisted the will, corruption, and seduction of Sauron. He charges the army of Mordor and his company follows their friend, their king.

The movie definitely needed more relationship-building between Faramir and Éowyn. I would’ve happily sat through a longer movie for it.

2:55 Tolkien confirmed your theory in a letter to his editor. Literally no one would be able to resist the temptation of the ring in Mount Doom, besides the godlike creatures as powerful or more powerful than Sauron.

The first thing I thought when seeing Grond, the battering ram used by the Orcs, was why didn't Gondor aim their catapults at it. Like one of those big rocks is bound to hit it, and I'm sure if it did, it would easily break the wheels, or the beams of the ram. If they had targeted it, disabled it as it slowly marched up Peleanor Fields, it would've saved a whole lot of time. Would've took the Orcs a whole lot longer to break down that massive metal door without a ram hah.
Obviously, we'll never know the reason why, cause it's a movie blah blah blah, but irl, I'm sure they would've tried, at least I hope they would be smart enough too

7:28 I LOVE that you pointed this out, because it's a similar complex that some people have when they suffer from mental illness. I have GAD (generalized anxiety disorder), but if I see someone who is more anxious or afraid than me, it's like suddenly my anxiety is much easier to control and I'm able to help them feel better while not having to worry much about myself. It's so strange and intriguing, and I think that Sam embodies the same thing, only with with hope and despair. Even when he's at his lowest point, Frodo is at a place somehow even lower, so Sam is able to help him and pick back up (metaphorically and literally).

Watching this video I realized I have actually never seen the extended version of return of the king, even tho I could swear i've seen it, but I definitely know now that I haven't. I think I have only seen the extended version of the fellowship of the ring. I'm definitely watching the extended versions of the trilogy next time I watch it.

Sam is, without question, the biggest BAMF in the series. Yes, I say that knowing Aragorn and company exist.
Sam has No warrior training, no survivalist training, he was a GARDENER. But his courage, willpower, and sheer love for his friends had him BODYING orcs and saving Frodo again and again.

You are right on every single win in this move, but now and always the ONE moment that ALWAYS gets me is that moment when the signal fire is lit and long, long pan across the mountains as each light come into view in the distance, moves into closeup and then scans across the horizon to pick up the next tiny, far away acknowledgement.
I cried, no--SOBBED in the theater, and to this day despite many viewings, I still get the tear-eyed-shivers.
So, the one thing I wanted to see your commentary that was utterly missing was the fall of Barad-dûr , with Sauron's eye blazing atop the tower. What kind of fantastic film making is it that can make a single red eye express both disbelief and abject terror?

Surprised you didn't mention Aragorn's repeating of Elendil's words. (Which he does in song in the movie, for some strange reason.) Harks directly back to his most illustrious ancestor, basically repeating his mission statement from when he survived the Downfall of Numenor.

4:43: They aren't in Rivendell, where the Fellowship was formed, they're in Gondor, about seven hundred miles to the south. In the book they're taken to Aragorn's army's field camp, but here it looks like Frodo's been taken all the way back to the city. (Minas Tirith.)

Sauron can't technically die, because he isn't mortal; he's a fallen angel. But he loses the power to physically interact with anything in the world again, and most of his sentience. Basically, like a human being a full-body amputee after a car-crash, and in a coma, which they only wake from for two minutes every twenty years. Just sentient enough for his fate to gnaw at him every now and again and maybe give a six year-old a nightmare every century or so.

Pip singing while Denathor feasts & Faramir dies pretty much makes me cry no matter how many times I've seen these movies. But the raw emotion from Sam makes me painfully uncomfortable because Sean Astin plays it so well. When I saw these in theaters, I was all about Aragon, because Viggo Mortensen. But the more I watched, the more Sam won me over.

2:06, another way of seeing this is that Sméagol at this point is taking a backseat and Gollum is in full control. Frodo trying to reach Sméagol once more is met by Gollum essentially saying “he isn’t here right now”. However, despite how complicit and apparently hateful Sméagol is towards the hobbits after seemingly getting tricked and captured by them, he still was moved by Sam’s speech (even if he may have felt that he wasn’t “worth fighting for”, possibly due to his murderous past) and he still was listening to Frodo professing the need to destroy the ring for both their sakes. But Gollum (and by extension, the ring’s corruptive hold) just wouldn’t let go and took full control of him at the end.

That moment when you realise that Gandalf was the pupil of Nienna, the goddess of weeping who had the power to turn sorrow into wisdom and she taught Gandalf pity and patience and increased his wisdom and endurance in hope. And his quote: "I will not say 'do not weep' for not all tears are an evil." Takes on a whole new meaning.

So are you telling me, that Golem's role to play was so that he, the last truly corrupted by the ring who was too far gone, had to be the sacrifice so no other would? Because the rings sway would alwas lead to it never being destroyed, but in the end destroying itself because of "its" corruption of Golem?

3:10 It could also be possible that the will of the ring is so strong at that moment, even Frodo can't resist. The ring doesn't want to be destroyed and has been shown/spoken of to have its own will and "reason". It grows and escapes people to move on and find its master, so it makes sense it would be using EVERYTHING it has to not be destroyed. How could poor Frodo resist?

Just gonna say, they couldn't use the eagles because in this universe, the eagles are practically gods, so very powerful and therefore very easy to be corrupted by the ring. I don't know much about the series lore, if you want more information look up MatPat's Film Theory on it

Fun Fact: When the Crew had a miniature of Sauron's Tower that they wanted to destroy, but because it was their only one they didn't want to risk actually destroying it for something that might not work the way they wanted. The crew then went on a christmas break, and one guy at Weta stayed behind and digitially recreated the tower, and handed it off to the editors (I think?) and said "here, I made this, destroy it however you want to as many times as you want to."

Tolkein did go on record saying that Samwise was the hero of LOTR, while Frodo is the protagonist. Samwise is the men who didn’t get to go home when he served in (I think) WWI. His fellow soldiers were his heroes, so he made a figure of them his hero.

Because he was a fan of the books and he loved these movies as well.

My only problem with the theatrical is the moment Sam first sees the Elves after leaving the Shire is in the extended. It shows him as a total fanboy, sets up a bit of insight into his optimism, and why he's in such awe when they actually meet them, and to him, that's the greatest adventure he could ever possibly imagine. He wants to go home after that; he's achieved more than he ever thought possible, got his fairy tale ending, and so it's time to go home. I feel the theatrical cut doesn't quite go into it enough on why the Hobbits would want to go home after delivering the Ring when the quest obviously wasn't done.

Fun behind the scenes fact about the destruction of Barad-Dur (by far my favorite miniature in the film); so, they knew they wanted it destroyed in some manner like that, but no one knew how they were going to model it, and then everyone said "...I hope it works out" and went home for Christmas break. But this one guy said "Fuck that I don't need a break," and stayed behind and modeled the ENTIRE fortress digitally so they could simulate that spherical explosion at the end. Which is very cool.

Gandalf was probably the only one to figure it out, but the Mouth of Sauron bringing Frodo's mithril mail out was actually a very, very good sign. It meant that Frodo was still free. If he had been captured, there would be no need to bring these items out. Sauron would just claim the Ring & flatten the men of the West. Clearly, they were seeking information, they still had no idea what type of creature(s) was wandering around Mordor, seriously wounding Shelob, apparently killing an entire fortress of orcs, making headway in a land designed to keep people out. Sauron was most likely indifferent to the whole business, as this would have been during the battle of Helm's Deep through the final battle. He was preoccupied with the war, and wouldn't turn his attention to anything else. I imagine some lieutenant or other officer high in Sauron's ranks took it upon themselves to bring Frodo's shirt to Aragorn, both to taunt him and see what information they might reveal about who or wat was lurking around Mordor!

Thanks for covering these masterpieces, they're probably the best fantasy stories of all time. Would you consider covering the Hobbit movies? I've always felt like they get way too much unfair hate, considering Peter Jackson was forced into making 3 movies (instead of his original 2-movie plan) and he had to add a lot of stuff, but he was still able to make the story incredible. I'd love to see what you thought about them! :D

Two things the book does that really bring home the "Sam is the hero" idea that weren't able to be in the movie were a) When Sam storms the tower to save frodo, the Orcs think that it's a great Elven warrior come to save Frodo, Callback to the council of Elrond when the elves wanted Glorfindel, the most badass of elves, to accompany Frodo and they took Sam instead. and b) when Sam has the ring, it tempts him by showing mordor as green and verdant without the corruption of Sauron, the ring's best attack against Sam was...well he's a gardener...show him a HUGE garden, emphasizing the theme from Fellowship that only the meek can carry the burden without succumbing.

Gotta say an heresy.. i love so much the theatricals, that as an film assistant video editor i understand why those pieces are actually missing. There were great choices made in the editing room between Gilbert, Horton, Selkirk (the Video Editors) and Jackson (the Director). Yes, the extended versions give us more informations, but the fact itself that removing those helped the final result in a better climax solution for some scenes, really takes the step up. Theatricals, here are waaay better movies, technically speaking and emotionally.

I have a far greater respect for Gandalf after reading up the details of what he is and what his mission is. It's something that it's really lacking in the movies but at the same time I would never know how to add it in without having it be a huge exposition dump.
Gandalf is pretty much a minor God, sent to Middle Earth by the major gods to stand against Sauron, but they had the rule that they couldn't confront Sauron's power with their own. Throughout the movie, many have commented that Gandalf is supposed to be a powerful sorcerer and yet the only magic he's seen doing is cracking the bridge at Moria, healing Pipin after he touched the palantir, and using sunlight to force the Nazgul to retreat. But it goes to show how great he is that he could do all he did while pretty much running at 10% or so of his power and was forbidden from confronting directly Sauron's forces with his power.
Heck, he could have probably vaporised the Witch-King during the battle of Minas Tirith without much effort. He was just forbidden to.

Man, isn't that how it always goes? The optimistic strong ones, can't even afford to be weak, because the other weaker ones that usually depend on them for encouragement would die, if the aforementioned gave up...so they have no choice but to keep being strong. It's comforting to know they rose to the occasion but also incredibly unfair that they have to ALWAYS BE STRONG.

I think it was once said that the more powerful the individual is the more they would struggle getting rid of the ring which if you think about it makes more sense. someone who already is powerful would crave even more power to a much bigger extend than "mortals" could ever imagine. the same with the hawks the temptation of the ring was probably one of the reasons for their reluctance
