Extended Edition

Ted just reminded me of something I have been thinking about a lot lately, but haven’t thought to write about.
The Extended Edition of The Return of the King.
Man, most of all I hope they put in Eowyn and Faramir’s meeting in the Houses of Healing! They took the one perfectly good romance in the book, blotted it out, and added a lot of Aragorn Arwen fluff! ARGH!
I have recently realized that I don’t mind romance when it is realistic and, well, relatively normal. The story of Eowyn and Faramir is such a good story, I don’t see how anyone could leave it out. Besides, it’s not totally romance at all.
What I really hate is fluff and angst and all that fanfiction type stuff. Like Martin and Rose, goodness GRACIOUS what are they thinking. Yes, of course they would have gotten married, and Martin is sad that she dies, but PLEASE no dorky love stories. Then they try to match up Mariel and Dandin, and boy does that tick me off. THEY WERE FRIENDS, JUST FRIENDS! Do you people have no brains? Ahem, sorry. Redwall. I sometimes get carried away.

Ah well. I hear that they are going to put in the Houses of Healing anyway, and online I found the Lord of the Rings audition scripts, or some of them, which was EXTREMELY exciting, and seeing as most of them were scenes from the movies, I think that the Eowyn and Faramir one I found will be similar to something in the movie.
Alright, Namarie, I am done griping now.

    What is the website for the audition scripts? And what is this about Mariel and Dandin????? Or do I not want to know?!!! I think I agree with you on the love stuff.
    I really don’t get it either that they don’t have time to put in Tom Bombadil or some of the other really good stuff from the books (like the Houses of Healing), but they can put stupid lovescenes in!!!!!
    Ok, now I am griping.

    Oh, some people just think that Mariel and Dandin were in love and were going to marry. UGH. Nuts nuts nuts nuts nuts.
