connections, parallels, and other fun details Can't Post

I thought it'd be fun to talk about some of the little connections/parallels/details throughout the movies that you've noticed.

I just noticed these first two recently:

-Frodo wears blue during his first and and final scenes, rather than the browns and greens he wears the rest of the time. Maybe a hint of his connection to the sea?

-Frodo and Gandalf stare at each other for a moment before they burst out laughing when they're first seen together in the movie, and when Frodo sees Gandalf for the first time as Gandalf the White.

-Frodo pulls Sam out of the river at the end of FotR, and Sam pulls Frodo from the brink of the Crack of Doom at the end of RotK.

I think that last one is pretty obvious, but it took me a few years to even notice it.Laugh
