So powerful [In reply to] Can't Post

1. Being a movie-firster, yes, I thought it was the end and they were going to die there. I thought the fade out with them on the rock was the end of the movie...quite a sad few seconds, until Gandalf came. CrazyCool

2. A good question! I think they now have a bond that few people have come to create with another person, being through a journey unimaginable to most of us. In the films, the class dynamic of their relationship seems present throughout, but not as apparent as it is in the books (to me, that is). The movies express this with the way Sam addresses Frodo ("Mister Frodo" and "Master"), with him coming to call him by his first name in the end (and only "Mr." in the way that social equals might do so in conversation). That's just a brief thought to a question worthy of many more words.

3. I see it as placing much more emphasis on Sam's role here, with Frodo actively aware of the importance Sam played, and greatly appreciative of it.

4. Tearing up just looking at the still image.

(I'm now reminded of something near this part I've always found interesting: Gandalf arrives with three Eagles; I presume the other was for Gollum, if he should have lived the destruction of the Ring. Nothing of great interest, but I find it a remarkable move by Gandalf nonetheless given everything we know at this point. Sorry for my wandering away from the topic at hand!! *slaps wrists*)
