SCOD - The many moods of Frodo Baggins. Can't Post

I'm going to do things a little differently for this one and take a look at five different screen caps of Frodo, each showing a different expression.

A. Gazing into Mordor.

B. "Nothing ever dampens your spirits, does it, Sam?"

C. "It's because we've been here before."

D. "We're not alone."

E. "Release him, or I'll cut your throat."

1. How would you describe what Frodo is feeling in each of these images?

A.
B.
C.
D.
E.

2. Which expression do you feel is the most expressive and convincing? Which is the least so?

3. What do you think of the character of Frodo Baggins in this part of the movie? Is there any significance to the variety of moods represented here?

4. Any other thoughts on these images, Frodo's character, or Elijah Wood's acting?

Many apologies for posting this so late in the week!

all we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us...
