It's been a while since I saw the movies, so I guess I should rewatch them again soon!
    Arwen rising the water was a good scene but in the novels it was Elrond who made the river rise from back in Rivendale and it was Gandalf that added the galloping horses look...

    He could win against a wizard? Gandolf was the wizard right? As you can see, I really have no idea what I'm talking about.

    Hmmm. I thought in the book the key player at the river was an elf prince who never appears again.

    The three excellent fantasy adventure movies of The Lord of The Ring! The Fellowship of The Ring; The Two Towers; and The Return of The King. Well worth seeing!

    No. It's relatively true to the books (as much as anyone could ever possibly expect anyway), and it just so happens that there aren't really non-white people in the books.

    They were published 70 years ago by an elderly middle-upper class white guy. What do you expect?

    It all depends... Gothmog was the Captain of the Balrogs and a bad ass.

    Thanks polgara! I only saw the first, but I'll have to make sure and see the other two.
