From what I understood, Frodo leaves with Gandalf and the Elves to go the the West. I don't know why, because I have not read the books.

so far nobody knows...I would have thought the reason was mentioned in the book

I'm guessing it's a biblical allusion, as moses could not enter the promised land

however, this is qualified when moses disobeyed god, as a punishment

I'm gonna take a stab, that frodo failes, and tries to keep the ring for himself, and thus, is punsished...but this should be referanced if I'm right...if I'm wrong, then what gives?

It is in the book, but i havn't read it either! Although you see at the end all the ring bearers leave, the Elves, Bilbo, Frodo. I know its somthing to do with being a ring bearer. but i don't think its becuase he tried to keep it

In the book, Sam bore the ring fgor a little longer than is apparent in the film, and did in fact put it on a few times to elude the orcs before entering Mordor. Hence, Sam was a ringbearer, and much later after Frodo's passing, Sam was allowed to pass to the grey havens too.

It seems that Khayman wrapped it up, but I thought I'd pitch in my thoughts based on the film alone since I haven't read the books yet.

My impression was that the ring-bearers sailed to the "Undying Lands" with the elves, as has already been stated. Frodo mentioned something about The Shire not being the same anymore. I don't remember his exact words, but it came across as if the ring had poisoned him enough to where he could never view Middle-Earth/The Shire from the perspective that he had before.

I assumed Sam did not go along because he did not bear the ring long enough for it to poison his mind to that degree.

Another thought is that Bilbo and Frodo could have been somewhat of a threat to the new world because of their knowledge of the ring and what it was. That could be another reason that they left.

There probably isn't a strict answer, but this reasoning made sense to me. :)

I also get the impression it has something to do with being a ring bearer. As you may or may not have noticed, all the beings which have or have had sufficient ties to magic left middle earth. Maybe it has to do with the destruction of the rings as sources of power, maybe it has to do with restoring things to a natural balance.

I'll say one thing...this movie (not just RoTK) has been the most incredible ever!

Never has a film had me so entralled, desperate for the next installment...nor have i ever had such a rush watching it at the cinema! RoTK...the battle sequences and as the fate of the characters were drawing to an end, never have i had such an adrenaline rush..i was literally shaking with anticipation!!

A film of this quality doesn't come by very often..perhaps never again in our lifetimes!!

I could watch these films over and over and never get bored!!

I like!!!!

Agreed. Howard Shore did unbelievable work for this... wrote, orchestrated and conducted it all.

As for the trilogy as a whole... there is no question in my mind that it is the greatest trilogy in film history.

Another thing I didnt really like. The part on the mountain with the birds, I was told that they were not in the third book, only in the hobbit.
