There are different parts to this challenge and different levels. Feel free to complete different part on different days and in different posts.

This weeks challenge has clips from 8 scenes.

Listen to all 8 clips in the first section.

Challenge One:

What do all these clips have in common?

Challenge Two:

What scenes are these clips from?

The Clues:

Now, this is pretty much impossible to complete without using the clues. I'm going to let you decide how many and what type of clues you wish to utilize. The first few clues everyone should read. They're not clues so much as parameters. The rest I'll put in hidden text (highlight to read).

Clues #1

  • The first section contains clips from a CD, either an OST (Original Sound Track) or CR (Complete Recording). Listening to all 8 will help you find the commonality. The scenes in the Extra Challenge Section have issues that make them problematic. Read more below.

  • The second section contains clips from the movie or using sound from the movie. Listening to these may be the only way you can answer complete Challenge Two. Since most will be obvious with movie dialog and sound effects, you should give yourself the opportunity to solve without them, but don't consider it 'cheating' to listen.

  • It is possible that multiple clips may come from the same scene.

Clues #2 - Some clips are somewhat problematic for the following reasons (hidden text / highlight to read):

  • Scene 5: This music - that's heard on the CD - is not in the movie. To identify this clip for Challenge Two, you'll need to listen to the 'movie' clip which mixes the movie dialog and sound effects with the CR music.

  • Scene 6: This music does not, IMO, provide a strong example of the commonality for Challenge One. Don't let this clip, on its own, throw you off your ideas and opinions for the group as a whole.

  • Scene 7: This music - that's heard on the CD - is not in the movie. To identify this clip for Challenge Two, you'll need to listen to the 'movie' clip which mixes the movie dialog and sound effects with the CR music.

  • Scene 8: This music - that's heard on the CD - is not in the movie. To identify this clip for Challenge Two, you'll need to listen to the 'movie' clip which mixes the movie dialog and sound effects with the CR music.

Clues #3 - the movie each clip is from (highlight to read)

  • General hint: all the clips are from either FOTR or TTT. There are surely good examples of the commonality in ROTK, but they aren't included in this game. I will elaborate why when I provide the answers.

  • Of the 8 clips: > 6 < are from > TTT < and > 2 < are from > FOTR <
    Specifically:

  • Scene 1 is from TTT

  • Scene 2 is from FOTR

  • Scene 3 is from TTT

  • Scene 4 is from TTT

  • Scene 5 is from TTT

  • Scene 6 is from TTT

  • Scene 7 is from TTT

  • Scene 8 is from FOTR

Clues #4 - The principal character involved in each clip (highlight to read)

  • Scene 1 Frodo, Sam, Gollum

  • Scene 2 the Fellowship

  • Scene 3 Frodo, Sam, Gollum

  • Scene 4 the Three Hunters

  • Scene 5 the 4 Hobbits and Strider

  • Scene 6 Frodo, Sam, Gollum

  • Scene 7 Merry and Pippin

  • Scene 8 Frodo and Arwen

Clue #5 - the commonality of the music clips: (highlight to read) Pay more attention to how the music sounds than where or how the music is used.
