The big showdown Can't Post

...between FOTR and AUJ.
Who wins in a battle between the 'comparable' scenes? (since they follow much of the same basic structure)

Maybe a little silly:-) But here goes, just for the fun of it:

Ring prolouge vs. Erebor prolouge (my winner here is rings prolouge. not by far, but still)

FOTR shire/bag-end stuff vs. AUJ shire/bag-end stuff (can't pick one. A draw for me)

First fight with an enemy: Weathertop vs. trollshaws (not sure this is the right comparison, but to me it makes sense being the first actual psysical clash with an enemy) (trollshaws for me)

Nazgul chase vas. warg chase (nazgul)

FOTR Rivendell vs. AUJ Rivendell (loved Frodo seeing Bilbo in fotr, but council of elrond was a mess and the WC slightly better. therefore I am going with AUJ)

Caradras vs. stone giants (a draw for me)

Moria vs. goblin town (Moria. Unless you count the riddles part of the goblin town sequence, but that doesn't really make sense)

Climax: Breaking of the Fellwship vs. Out of the Frying Pan (no way to compete with boromir's death and the breaking of fellowship. That climax is just SOO much stronger - and for me the strongest in all the films)

For me that's 4 points for FOTR, 2 for AUJ and 2 draws. What do you think? (and maybe there are other scenes to compare??)

    FOTR is full of lyricism. AUJ is almost devoid of it.// Plurmo Send a private message to Plurmo Jan 11 2013, 11:55pm
