Barrels out of Bond Can't Post

Am i the only one who's a little nervous about this scene? In an interview with TotalFilm, Jackson said that this scene would be "quite the ride." And, in the production blogs, we see the barrels moving at a speedy pace. In the book, it's much more of a test of patience and surveillance on Bilbo's part. I'm thinking the scene is going to be another 3D attraction wherein the river becomes rapid and twisty-and-turny. Put simply, I'm afraid it's going to become a roller-coaster ride.

exhibit c: (at 1:19)

i feel such an aesthetic would undermine the tone in tolkien's novel. hopefully, at some point in the scene, there is a slower and more meditative aspect in Jackson's interpretation.
