ONTD Original: The 10 Best Little Moments in The LotR Trilogy

The LotR is an fantasy trilogy with heroic characters, evil bad buys, and epic battle sequences. But for me what makes it even more great is the tiny little moments that happen in between. Whether it's just a simple conversation between friends, something that spurs on a greater story line, or even just small silly moments it all helps shape these films.

From funny to heartbreaking, here is my fave 10 moments. In no particular order.

10. The elves arriving at Helm's Deep (don't @me book purists)


9. They have a cave troll


8. Pot-ay-toes!


7. Shall I describe it to you or would you like me to find you a box?


6. Gandalf hitting his head constantly at Bag End


5. Pippin's Song


4. Theoden's Decision


3. Gandalf's speech to Pippin


2. Lighting the beacons.


1. There's some good left in this world, Mr. Frodo. I cry


Honorable mention: Second Breakfast
