Oooohhh, you are cruel to make me choose..... [In reply to] Can't Post

I love the way that the Company's theme has such strength and the resounding power of those trumpets!

But, The Fellowship of the Ring was my first introduction to Middle-earth and as long as I live I'll never forget watching them walking through the stunning landscape, and then Gandalf leading them through on their closeups as the music booms out and reaches it's triumphant peak. So I think this one would have to be my winner.

I love the subtle changes in theme as it's repeated through the trilogy: after Gandalf falls it never has that triumphant feel to it again (until the very last one at the end in RotK), and then after Boromir's death you see Frodo standing by the boats and you have one last, now rather slow and mournful, tribute to that brave band of warriors who risked so much with the hope of little in return (at least in terms of personal gain).

If this sort of thing happens to the Company's music in The Hobbit as the films go on I shall be mighty pleased.

"These are Gundabad Wargs! They will outrun you!"

"THESE are Rhosgobel Rabbits! I'd like to see them try...."
