The Return of the King (1980) (part 3 of 8)
Rant aside, the credits play as we get random footage of Frodo and Sam walking, until the song mercifully ends, and we go back to Sam still pounding on the doors and shouting out for Frodo. The ring is a few feet away from him, and he finally notices it, after ramming into the door at full speed, only to be knocked back on his ass.
The ring glows, and we get an inner monologue from Sam as he tells the ring off, before putting it around his neck and continuing on, still talking all the way. I swear, if you were to tally things up, a good two-thirds of this movie involves characters talking about things rather than doing them. The other third is divided between awful music, aimless wandering, and more awful music.
