I couldn't tell either. I don't recall if there are exact passages in the books regarding Hobbits and their 'mastering' of rocks.

I think that it's more their capability of stealthy actions and attacks that makes them tough opponents, and this is always shown in the films. That is, what really matters is rather how and in what circumstances they use objects/weapons; for example, Sam seemed to be quite effective even with a frying pan against the Goblins of Moria  :P

I've finally gotten the Extended edition  xD and I'm really enjoying it, not for the long extended bits such as the death of saruman or the "battle" between Gandalf and WK, which I had already seen, but for the small bits and bobs there and here such as Theoden saving Gamling or a couple additions to Saruman's speech atop his tower after his defeat.

I know very well the significance of those small pieces of beauty, hidden here and there in the narration. I too have bought the complete Extended Edition, and it could have not been a better purchase  ;)

In case you were interested, this is the official performance of May It Be in the 2002 edition of the Oscars; one of the rare live performances of Enya in general.

The song (the leading sung theme of FOTR) was nominated too as best song/record. Unfortunately, it didn't manage to get what would have been a well-deserved award; nevertheless, the Fellowship of the Ring itself eventually won four prizes for multiple significant categories  :)

Enya being interviewed about LOTR (book and cinematographic trilogy) and what convinced her to participate personally in the making of two famous tracks of the Fellowship of the Ring's official soundtrack.

I watched it and I must say, I don't often hate videos but I found that they got their order profoundly wrong. Watch it if you wish but in my opinion it is a waste of time

Judging also from the comments below the video, the order chosen was indeed controversial. WatchMojo is well known for its list/ranking-like videos, which are nonetheless interesting, even though it's undoubtedly true that they might not get it right as well. I was personally interested very much in the reasons behind their classification, rather than the list itself. At least, this is my own approach to this kind of videos  ;)

What if we shared our own most memorable moment of LOTR instead? I think it will be very nice to know each other's thoughts on the matter.

My own most memorable moment is the epilogue of ROTK: the Hobbits and Gandalf journeyed to the Grey Havens, where they eventually meet the last and mightiest High Elves that are about to depart forever from the mortal World. I believe that the ensemble of acting, setting and photography is absolutely great. The soundtrack is simply sublime. It's also the last time we see Galadriel, as she leaves us with her typical intense and deep smile, knowing that she will soon return to her holy homeland in Aman  8-)

I'm going to put three, and they're all from Lord of the Rings (though the most memorable part of The Hobbit movies for me was when Bilbo spared Gollum):

1. The Charge of the Rohirrim at the Battle of Pelennor Fields. You can just see in their eyes that they have no hope of coming back as they charge across the field, and the Rohan theme playing and then the orcs start firing and it really gets me every time I watch Return of the King:(

2. this one is in the extended edition, but it still counts. the Journey to the Crossroads in Return of the King, where Frodo and Sam see the statue-head of the King of Gondor crowned with flowers. it always stood for me as a sign that, no matter how bad things get, there is always hope.

3. not as profound as the others, but admit it, we've all been guilty of this one: Galadriel's unnecessarily scary scene in Fellowship of the Ring. more than once it woke me up and demanded attention like a ghost in the room. i never fall asleep watching Lord of the Rings afterwards.  :D

I too like the statue scene in ROTK. I recently watched again the whole Extended Edition trilogy and that moment impressed me quite a lot: as far as I regarded it, it seemed to me as a sort of well-wishing prologue/prelude to the film, even though it also kind of anticipated the sorrows that Frodo would have gone through in order to succeed in his mission. The contrast between that quiet environment (which the statue is immersed into) and the slopes of Mordor's Mountains of Shadow is really powerful. Perfectly directed indeed.

Speaking about extended scenes, I would also mention the Passing of the Elves frame in FOTR. The whole atmosphere is extremely quiet and calm, along with the very chants of the Eldar in their holy journey. I often imagined how it would feel to be one of those Elves, passing through the old western forests in the evening's breeze and finally reaching the Grey Havens to eventually sail to the Blessed Realm  :P

Galadriel unveiling her dark desires shocked me as well when I first watched it. And, to think, I really disliked her as a child due to her initial ambiguous attitude towards the Fellowship (an interpretation of PJ and the writers, being her always benevolent and kind in the books). Very interesting that I then grew fond of her as my favourite character  xD

I must say, from a cinematographic point of view my favorite scene is the charge of the Rohirrim at the battle of Helm's Deep. The combination of sound and image made it my personal favorite, it gives me chills everytime I watch it.

Never had words regarding the LOTR trilogy been more accurate than this statement from one of the greatest directors of all times  8-)

The immense blessing of the sacred YouTube can also grant us the possibility to see a few hours of the LOTR behind-the-scenes for free  (**)

Behind the scenes are hilarious, the cast constantly joke around. I think my favorite behind the scenes moment is knowing Sean Bean would rather climb 2 hours in his Boromir suit than take an 20min helicopter to the filming location  xD
