Late post again! But loved this SCOD and the last one! [In reply to] Can't Post

1. Jackson stated that this scene with the Rohirrim clustered around the Fellowship was deliberately shot with multiple handheld cameras to give it a more frantic feel. Do you feel that this was effective/in line with the tone of the scene as presented?

Yeah I'd say yes. To be honest however, I couldn't really tell that it was done that much in a different way.

2. Aragorn turns the horsemen around in a massive display when he asks "What news from the Mark?". Do you think he found nothing odd about this Rohirrim riding out in the middle of nowhere? What information did you think he expected to gain, if not news of Merry and Pippin?

He was aware of the Uruk-hai roaming the place, so of course hte fact that these Rohirrim were crossing this way meant that they must have encountered the Orc company. So he was interested in that respect too I'd say. Plus, their mission/allegiance.

3. Speaking of Merry and Pippin, do you still feel the worry for them at this point in the film?

Well I wasn't worried that much as I had read the book... I couldn't imagine that PJ'd kill them off anyway Tongue

4. There were slight hints at antagonism between Legolas and Gimli in the first film, but in this scene Legolas actively defends Gimli with a threat. Do you feel that his action was warranted in terms of character motivation and growth? How could this budding friendship be better served, if not?

Hmmm no clue. I liked it, but yes it was a bit weird hehe

5. Any additional thoughts and comments!

I like this whole bit, but I think it was better in the book IMO
