You're so right [In reply to] Can't Post

the incredible attention to detail is one of the most outstanding advantages of the LOTR films. And the use of the Elvish and other Middle-earth languages especially made it all seem so authentic. Apart from the use of Quenya and Sindarin, I always enjoy the funeral lament sung by Eowyn in the Extended Edition of TT, it adds to the impact of the culture of the Rohirrim on the audience.

And I quite agree with you --- knowing that The Hobbit films will have this same hallmark of quality really heightens my anticipation of these two films! I'm so glad David Salo is giving his expert input again! If only my brain wasn't so sluggish I'd make an effort to learn at least some Sindarin but things just don't stick as well in my memory after half a century of being crammed full with other stuff... Unsure

'Goodness gracious, you really are a messie!' 'Oh no, I'm not, these are all just mathoms...'
