[color=red]no.......he got on the boat w/his grandfather and gandalf because he had had a taste of adventure and wanted more.

remember when when he told the fat one (forgot his name, :lol: ) that the shire had been saved, but not for him?

yeah.[/color]

Err... was that a joke? (if so, sorry)He had to go because the wound he got could never heal and he was becoming ill all the time. And sad. He went there to find peace, not for adventures. BTW, Bilbo isn't his grandfather. :p

omfg... you people are retarded.. the movies follow the story of Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" read the damned books. They're a LOT longer then the movies ending was, and say "why" not "y". you look stupid for condensing a 3 letter word.

Frodo went to Valinor (The West) because he was a ring bearer along with Gandalf, Bilbo and the Elves. Think of it as heaven, early retirement whatever.

I agree with n0e. Read the books and they'll answer all your questions. LOTR and The Hobbit are among my favorite books.

And you're not alone in the standing up. I was getting paranoid thinking "Oh no what if PJ cut this out what if he cut that out" and I got ready to leave after each 2 second black screen :lol:

Well I can't vouch for the stupidity of some audiences, but both times I've seen RotK, people haven't stood up till the end, and in fact there was a standing ovation at the end. Personally I hadn't read any Tolkien other than The Hobbit when I saw Fellowship, and all the questions I had (where did Sauron come from, was he originally a man, etc) prompted me to pick up the Silmarillion, which really does explain *everything*, if you've got the attention-span to plough through its archaic-style prose.
