repeating some of Darkstone's post [In reply to] Can't Post

1.) I really love this scene in FotR. It really illustrates the innate peacefulness of the hobbits. Were you pleased with the portrayal and appearance of the hobbits?

Yes -- and to add to Darkstone's comment for this question, I would say that is one reality of adapting a work to a different time and place -- modern audiences might not have taken too well to the distinct class differences present in Tolkien's original (surely many would not have been able to relate to it.) It is similar to the shift seen from Tolkien's to Jackson's Aragorn. If this version of the Hobbits helps people understand the sort of "underlying essence" of the Hobbits, then, excellent! To some, however, that class distinction might have been more important and should not have been left out. It's always a gamble.

2.) I loved Elijah Wood as Frodo. Physically, he may not have been exactly how I envisioned Frodo looking (age-wise anyway) but his acting makes up for that. Did you like Elijah as Frodo?

Yes..ish. I did have some reservations about his overall appearance/age. However, I also echo Darkstone's comment that Elijah presents a very innocent Frodo, and that the corruption of that innocence is therefore heightened. However, I also agree that some of the "dry wit" is missing and that perhaps left film-Frodo with a somewhat less complex character.

3.) Howard Shore's score throughout all the films were amazing in my opinion. What do you think about the score during these Hobbtion sequences?

No complaints -- the music during the dance sequence fit fairly well with my imagining.

4.) Any other thoughts are always welcome!

well done, .Ithilwen. and thank you!
