In fact, on my first viewing, when his face melted away, I found it really startling and distracting because it was totally unexpected and I had no idea why it happened. In fact, I missed some critical details in the next couple scenes because about all I could think for quite some time was "What the heck?!"
I've gotten past the shock factor and I now have at least seen the many unconfirmed theories that explain it so it's not so distracting, but it's the one thing about that scene that I don't like very much.
Edit: And for some odd reason, the top left gif on this page http://wifflegif.com/...35760-thranduil-gifs makes it all the more disturbing
"And we find what we're made of
Through the open door
Is it fear you're afraid of?
What are you waiting for?
Love alone is worth the fight."
