Should I thank you for trying? (I expected this to be easier; where are the obsessive Tolkien fans? Probably on strike against Peter Jackson).

Edit distance = 5.

Unloved and still available.

Hint#1: the film is on two discs. All the images are from the second disc. Doesn't that have about 90m of story and around 45m of credits?

Hint#2: 8 _ _ _ _ _ _ _

The credits are sure loooooong. ...But fortunately we don't have to watch them, only for the true hardcore LOTR fans.

8, 3, 7, 4, 1, 6, 5, 2 ?

Love the movie, have to blame the wife for not having watched it in so long, so I am throwing a total Hail Mary:

8 5 6 3 7 2 1 4


Every once in a while, quite inexplicably, things actually go according to plan.

First: Welcome to the game!

Second: That's it! You had the graphics correct before the numbers, which is legit. (And a lot of work).

I've attached my unshuffled version.

I didn't know this would be so hard. I just presumed every other reader had the film memorized. You never know around here.

The scenes:

cruel Caradhras
west gate of Moria
Balin's tomb
Durin's Bane approaches
Caras Galadhon
the Mirror of Galadriel
sampling the lembas
"I would have followed you to the end" (a scene not in the book!)
