Bridging the gap. Can't Post

It occurs to me that if they're going to round off the last film with old Bilbo writing his memoirs as he did at the beginning of AUJ - ie. at the very start of FOTR, then the film-makers have a time gap available to them, to insert a few bridging scenes just before this - Gollum leaving the mountains and being captured by Sauron etc., giving a sense that things are brewing that our heroes are unaware of. That way, the bridging scenes won't seem like they're tacked on to the end of the film, as Bilbo and Frodo will be there to give it a proper full stop. Perhaps that's why they chose the story within a story technique.

And by the way, does anyone know when I get to leave Rivendell? I've been here for bleedin' ages.

"Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear."
