You're not alone Zarabia.... [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?

I don't have much problems with the background, it's like you said: when in motion you can barely tell.

What really bothers me and sticks out like a sore thumb, is the green reflected in their body and faces. It makes it obvious that they were in front of a green screen and later inserted in that background.

As far as composition goes, its not the best one nor do I think it should be. It's a scene of danger and risk, the characters are not stable and neither is their surrounding; so it works solely because it reflects their situation successfully. If it was a perfectly composed shot, it would be distracting and alienating to a certain degree, IMO.

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

Sue me, I did. I was completely thrilled and at the edge of my seat the first time I saw it, and.... even now I enjoy this part. I do find the dwarf tossing and the beard grabbing a bit over the top, but I find the whole scene thrilling. Having said this, I most definitely not count this part among FOTR's highlights.

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

Uhm... what about it? I don't think either of his legs is in frame.
