Withdraw the Army of the Dead, or men of Dunharrow in RETURN OF THE KING after the siege on Palarguir. While still giving a sence of conclusion and resolution to it.

I don’t much like the ‘green goo’ tsunami that insta-kills the orcs. I do think the Extended Edition improved it slightly as we see more of Aragorn and Gimli on the battlefield killing orcs including Gothmog, so they are still participating in the victory even after the Dead arrived.

I think the only way to accomplish it would be to have the Army of the dead arrive on the boats and join the battle but delete the shot of the green goo swarming over the Oliphaunt (Day Z style) and then flooding the streets of Gondor - really just 3 seconds of footage to cut. Replace it with some slo-mo battle footage of regular men fighting and perhaps a short voiceover by Gandalf “the turn of the tide…” to imply time passing and the battle being won, then segue into the aftermath of the battlefield.

ps. if you’re going to make an edit then also tweak Denethor’s burning man marathon run, that’s far sillier than the Army of the Dead!

I am looking to emphasize the need of such manipulation and editing in this community. I myself am very green in movie composition and editing.

The Dead might have been able to harm. (Though I agree they couldn’t slaughter anyone with non-corporeal weapons)

We know of two instances of death occurring. One is the old man that appeared in Rohan, proclaimed some spooky shit about the Paths, and fell on his face dead. Possessed?

The other, a Prince of Rohan who ventured the Paths, came across a sealed door, and was attacked by someone from behind, leaving his legs broken - hence unable to move, he died in the dark, alone. Was it the Dead (Stalking their prey from behind, like we see in ROTK)? Or living Men?

Both are indirect ‘kills’, so the quote of “I doubt their blades would still bite” may still ring true. But interesting regardless.

An interesting analysis indeed.

In virtue of fidelity, logical enforcement, maintaining the urge of mystery, while insuring the Battle on Pelennor Fields is a sacrifice and victory of men.

It is, of the entire Trilogy the most catastrophic modification to my eyes, and I am sure it is to many of you fine folk.

I am sure there is an appetite for such a thing. And since Middle Earth projects are on the rise with 35mm scans of The Lord of The Ring, 4K Dremastered, and multiple Hobbit revisions I think the time has come.

Here is a video analysis of the scenes in question:

Okay, I think I did my best for the time being, here are some snaps, let me know what you think:

FOTR: https://imgur.com/a/mJtrZEx
TTT: https://imgur.com/a/o3kVNOd
ROTK: https://imgur.com/a/IL1cl2O

Like I previously mentioned, I only applied grades to whole reels, not on a scene to scene or shot to shot basis. Some reels were pretty hard to match, especially in ROTK, but I think I did pretty good in most cases.
I don’t have a mega account, but if anyone would want to upload these on theirs, I’ld be happy to transfer them via resilio!
Should I maybe start a new thread?

I think you should start a new thread.
