I was talking to my brother the other day, and I brought up the fact that Lord of the Rings was probably the most emotional movies I had ever watched. I have really never cried as much in ANY movie then I have in these. Peter Jackson was almost obsessed with self-sacrifice, so you can see throughout the whole films! I believe that the first picture of self-sacrifice that was in it, was displayed by one of my favorite characters...Frodo! He sacrificed almost everything he had ever known, to take the quest that was laid before him. The second picture was when we see(another one of my favorites) Arwen, during the Flight to Ford. I love where she says "What grace has given me, let it pass to him. Let him be spared. Save him." That was very touching for me the first time I saw it, and it still is. And of course there is where Arwen gives Aragorn the Evenstar. And where Gandalf(like Christ) gives up his life to save that Fellowship. And of course where Sam goes after Frodo(and nearly drowns doing so). And on, and on, and on. Leave some of your favorite touching scenes in the comment section!
