Hi All and welcome to the second SCOD for this week.

1. What did you think of the setting of the "Forbidden Pool"?

2. Did you think the treatment of Gollum by the Ithilien Rangers in the second image was justified?

3. What do you think of the contrast in mood between the two images?

4. Any other comments or thoughts?

One by one they faded, and fell into shadow...

One book to rule them all
One book to find them
One book to bring them all
And in TORn bind them
In the land of TORnadoes...where the brilliant play

Thank you Kel for a comparison I can relate to [In reply to] Can't Post

1. What did you think of the setting of the "Forbidden Pool"?

I thought the movie well in accord with my imagination..prompted from the text.


2. Did you think the treatment of Gollum by the Ithilien Rangers in the second image was justified?

Yes. I do. Faramir and his guard perceived Gollum as a villain and treated him as so..in the text and in the movie.

3. What do you think of the contrast in mood between the two images?

I agree that there is contrast and yet...find some similarities.

Just one similarity...for now..in hopes of others sharing more.

Gollum...just being Gollum.
Content as best he could be. Catching and eating a fish.

Also...I find similarity in the "pity" felt for Gollum.

Said Faramir to Frodo...Should we spare him?..And Why?..Speak now Frodo...before the arrow is released.

Hold Anborn.

Forbidden Pool [In reply to] Can't Post

1. What did you think of the setting of the "Forbidden Pool"?

I thought the setting for the Forbidden Pool was beautiful and the lighting perfect. It made the hunt for Gollum just that more intense.

Did you think the treatment of Gollum by the Ithilien Rangers in the second image was justified?

The second image No-Gollum is captured and a bag or blanket is placed over his head and taken away. Unjustified treatment follows later.

3. What do you think of the contrast in mood between the two images?

First image-Faramir and his men interrupted what would have been a delicious stew of coney and potatoes, now we see Gollum, alone and in his element on a bright moonlit night hunting fish. He seems happy and content and for now, forgotten about his fear of the moonlight and the rangers. All the while he is being watched.

Second image-Gollum's despair and Frodo's anguish and plea to the rangers not to hurt Gollum.

1. What did you think of the setting of the "Forbidden Pool"?

it was just like I imagined it to be, quite spooky really

2. Did you think the treatment of Gollum by the Ithilien Rangers in the second image was justified?

No, they were quite brutal in the cave, Frodo had already told Faramir Gollum was their guide, and not to shoot him, so they should have been kinder and not beaten him for no good reason. Its not in Faramirs character to sanction brutality, ok they were at war, but Gollum was not an orc, he could have been innocent for all they knew.
