Corrected entry: In the scene where Boromir is holding the hilt of the sword Narsil in Rivendale when he moves his hand up to the tip and cuts his finger there is a close up on his fingers and the one next to the one with the drop of blood has a small line of blood on it as well, it probably came from an earlier take.

Corrected entry: In the high angle wide shot of the Nazgul in a V-formation chasing Arwen and Frodo, there are only eight of them. Granted, the last one could have joined the chase afterwards, but he either would have had to have a horse that was much faster than the others, since there is no sign of him behind them, or he'd have to be waiting for them all in the trees ahead. But if so, he never jumped in front of them, which would make a lot more sense, but just joined the chase behind them.
Corrected entry: At the birthday party at the beginning of the film, Frodo pushes Sam onto the dance floor and into Rosie Cotton's arms. As they go sweeping off to the right, you see the musicians in the background. For an instant (more visible in freeze-frame), there's an object that looks strikingly like a modern bottle of mineral water by one of them. (00:20:37)

Corrected entry: When the Fellowship is crossing over the mountain, Boromir sort of becomes transfixed by the ring and drops his shield. When he returns to his normal state, he picks his shield up from the snow and lifts it onto his back. When he does this, you can see the camera crew reflected briefly in the center of the shield. (00:08:15)
Corrected entry: After Bilbo disappears from his birthday party and then re-appears inside his front door, there's a scarf tied around his neck. He still has the scarf on as he picks up a walking stick in the next shot. Then, a split second later, the scarf is gone. (00:24:50)

Corrected entry: In the scene where Frodo falls in the snow and Boromir picks up the ring, you can see Aragorn standing behind Frodo. After Boromir ruffles Frodo's hair, only Aragorn's left hand is resting on the handle of the sword. Boromir then turns to leave and Aragorn has suddenly completely changed position, with his left hand on the scabbard and his right hand on the handle, although Boromir has already started to walk away and is no longer a threat.

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie, during the Prologue when Cate Blanchett gives a brief history of Middle Earth, near the end of her monologue she says "For none now live who remember", referring to the war of the Last Alliance, this is in contradiction to two major facts of the story. The first being that the elves are immortal, therefore at least some of them would still be present at this time. The second is that Elrond is clearly shown fighting in the battle, and later he vividly recalls to the Fellowship, at the meeting in Rivendell, how he begged Isildur to cast the Ring into the fire of Mount Doom. Proving not only was he present but he can also remember the Last Alliance.

Corrected entry: This is found on the extended version, the scene where Frodo is offering Galadriel the One Ring, she moves towards him with her right hand extended. After her morphing scene she regains composure and tells Frodo that she, too, is a Ring Bearer and then extends her right hand again - this time showing her ring. Where was the ring when she extended her hand the first time?

Corrected entry: At Bilbo's birthday party, he is wearing a red jacket with a green collar. He then disappears. When he re-appears, he still has it on. When he grabs the walking stick, it has turned all green.

Corrected entry: When the Fellowship is running through the mines of Moria, after they have fought with the orcs and cave troll, they reach the bridge of Khazad-dum. Then they are stopped again by the great number of orcs. When the Balrog arrives, they run further to Khazad-dum; the filmmakers used the exact same shot for this scene as when the Fellowship was running from the orcs in the first place.
