my two cents [In reply to] Can't Post

1) I have to say this is one of the parts of the movie where the effect of the different heights does work relatively worse to other scenes. Frodo and Sam look "copy/pasted" infront of the waterfall and the moving men.

2) It was not really necessary to show the vision... Mr. Wenham's telling was compelling enough imho.

3) Well, the vision/dream certainly indicates that there is more to Faramir and knowing his family's history the connection to Numenor is a logical conclusion.

4) Although I am not a fan of showing the vision, it is good to give Faramir a very sympathetic moment here. Since the film-makers chose to get him much more tempted by the One Ring (THANK GOD! imho), this balances him out quite nicely and we never really see him as a simple jerk, even when he decided to take Frodo to his father.
