Mary, Mary, quite contrary... [In reply to] Can't Post

1. Lighting, composition and background: What are your thoughts on the visual make-up, and the authenticity of these latter parts of Moria?

No, this isn't the most brilliant example of composition, but I don't think it's as bad as others seem to. The background does show up as rather CGI-ish, and Frodo and Aragorn almost look like cut-outs against it. Also, their (Frodo's and Aragorn's) coloring looks a bit on the coolish side considering that they are supposed to be surrounded by flames.

2. The jump... did you like this part?

Okay, here's where I'm seemingly alone. (Takes deep breath and gathers courage) I like this sequence. There! I said it! I thought it was fun. I don't like everything about it - especially the Dwarf tossing line and Legolas grabbing Gimli by the beard - but I was on the edge of my seat. I am normally *not* a big fan of action sequences for the sake of action. By far my favorite parts of these films are the quieter, character-based scenes, but I was really caught up in the moment.

What's up with Frodo's leg? (Laugh)

I don't think that's his leg. I think it's his cloak, or the cloak of whichever hobbit went just before (I forget who) It's greenish like the cloak, not brownish like his pants. If it is his leg, he's doing some funky 70's dance moves in some equally funky green bell-bottom pantsLaugh

Thank you, XanasebSmile
