Introduction: by "freaqboy"
We as a community have spent much time arguing over the
actual changes in the storyline. The problem is, none of us have seen the script, so none
of us have a clear idea of what Jackson intends to do. Well, I have the answer.
Part 1: A long-expected party.
The screen is DARK.
[from Moriarty's script review:]
BILBO lights a torch. reveals SLIPPERS.
BILBO switches off lights.
CUT to SECOND AGE, big battle. Lots of ELVES, lots of HUMANS, lots of ORCS. they FIGHT. It is EXCITING. A big scary guy hits his finger chopped off. ISILDUR picks it up with a RING on it, and there is much rejoicing. ORCS shoot him with arrows and the RING falls into nearby river. There is much angst.
