Like many others here... [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't usually cry when talking about LOTR, but during book and films- yes definitely. And on listening to some of the score too.
Particular moments? - too many to list them all but-
1) Boromir's death (film) - I loved it in the film- especially the withdrawing of most of the sound and just letting the choral lament play over it (For me, the book rushed this part rather)
2) Horns of Rohan and Ride of the Rohirrim- book, film and score!- wow, this gets me every time- I'm not surprised that thereafter Pippin weeps at the sound of horns blowing in the morning (sorry, can't remember exact quote). Major spinal shivers!
3) Frodo & Sam struggling towards Mount Doom both book and film- especially the "I can't carry it for you but...." lines
4) Field of Cormallen- I can understand Tolkien having tears when writing this part. I so wish it could have been included in the movie. When the minstrel starts to tell the "Tale of Nine-Fingered Frodo and the Ring of Doom" , echoing Sam's earlier words, and Sam starts crying, so do I!
5) When Eowyn finally sees the light and realises that she returns Faramir's love.
6) The Grey Havens- especially in the book when Frodo explains to Sam why he has to leave Middle-earh and how badly he has been hurt by the quest

And many many more- I'd better go, before my keyboard gets all wet!


Coming soon!- The first TORn Amateur Symposium, starts Sunday 21st July in the Reading Room. Closing date for essay submission Sunday 14th July, but even if you don't submit, join us for some interesting discussion on some different and personal ways of looking at Tolkien's work
