SCOD: "Fingers would remember their own strength better, if they grasped your sword" Can't Post


Sorry about the lateness of this SCOD, has been a busy week.
The second of this week's SCODs is, for me, probably the most iconic moment in the entire TTT film. Here are a few questions about it (answer any, none or all of them):

1. How did you feel when you first saw this moment in the film? How does the soundtrack heighten your emotions here?

2. How do you feel about the differences between Theoden's two appearances? Do you think that movie Theoden looked too young?

3. How did this moment in the film shape your perception of Rohan/Theoden in general?

4. What can you see on Theoden's face in this shot? Triumph? A regained sense of identity? Realisation of what has happened to him/what Wormtongue has been up to?

5. Any other thoughts/comments?

"Radagast is, of course, a worthy wizard, a master of shapes and changes of hue, and he has much lore of herbs and beasts, and birds are especially his friends."-Gandalf, The Lord of the Rings.
