no shelob (moved to LotR:TRotK) Aragorn death sequence elves at Helm's Deep (besides Legolas) extra Arwen stuff added comedy dialogue (make fun of short people ) decrease in amount of gayness between Frodo and Sam did I leave anything out? It's been a while since I read TTT. Most of these changes don't affect the outcome of the movie. the Arwen stuff is not needed. the comedy always makes people look stupid. Legolas would be a few feet shorter if he had said that stuff to Gimli in the book. The elves at Helm's Deep was kinda weird. the book shows the Elves abandoning the world in the face of danger. This explains the absence of the insults from the Riders about Galadriel (and the subsequent anger shown by Gimli), because the elven soldiers were welcomed in the battle.
