The Lord of the Rings is a set of three motion pictures that form Peter Jackson's adaptation of J.R.R Tolkien's novel The Lord of the Rings . The scripts do not adhere precisely to the story in the volumes of the novel, yet contain most of its most important elements. Yet, some major passages of the books were left out of the movies, and others significantly altered. Two sets of omissions that many consider major were: "The Old Forest", "In the House of Tom Bombadil", & "Fog on the Barrow-Downs", from The Fellowship of the Ring, and "Many Partings", "Homeward Bound", & "The Scouring of the Shire" from The Return of the King. These were omitted, and other passages altered, for reasons of dramatic flow and practical limits on what could be presented in three movies.
