SCOD-Double bill [In reply to] Can't Post

a. I don't know if anyone else gets this (and you can't really see it here), but this particular shot always sticks out when I see it in motion, namely on blu-ray. There's something about this shot amongst its neighbors that seems extremely clear, sharp, and eye-popping. It's hard to describe, but does anybody else have a similar sense with this one, or am I just crazy?

In this shot if you remove the staff you would be left with twice as much blur of forest features than what we are suppose to know, see or understand about the White Wizard. I think the white accessory is used to great effect here.

b. How do you read Gandalf's face here?

A very solemn and serious Wizard with a lot at stake and also concerned for those around him.

b2 Why do you think it is the way it is?

"Fool of a Took" but Gandalf need not have worried Gandalf left Merry and Pippin in the capable branches of Treebeard.

2.) Orthanc

a. It's almost self-explanatory why I picked this one. Let's play this like a rorschach test - what do you see (and I don't mean it literally, of course).

An ocean of debris, like a tsuami just hit and the four spires seem to be leaning more outward rather than straight up giving an exposed feel and look about it.
