Some of my favourite "I never noticed that" moments.. [In reply to] Can't Post

1. Aeglos in Rivendell
2. The Ring of Barahir (did not notice until extended edition of TTT)
3. The detail on most of the weapons and armour (only seen in close ups and on replicas)
4. Narya on Gandalf's hand at the Grey Havens (I may be excused, haven't watched that scene very much, it always upsets me...)
5. Madril among the extras in the background of the Boromir and Faramir scene
6. The pipe inside Gandalf's staff (the first staff in FOTR)
7. The resemblance of the Bilbo's father to Peter Jackson (the picture on the mantlepiece in Bag End)

Distress signal [In reply to] Can't Post

I tend to have it on a lot in the background without always paying attention *shame* and then I'll suddenly notice some little point of significance that I never seem to notice when I'm actually watching in earnest. Tonight The Two Towers was on and when the flag of Rohan flutters down, it lands unfurled with the running horse upside down, which is a universal distress signal. I don't know if it was intentional, but it really fits. ( I checked the lists and I don't think this is in there.)

Since we got the blueray version and a larger screen I also notice a lot of details and textures that I never saw before. For instance, I never noticed the detail in how Sam's cookware was put together, and a lot of the costuming details like the embroidery on Gandalf the White's robe. I notice new stuff every time I watch. I had always thought that blue ray was sort of like the emperor's new clothes ("I'll believe it if you'll believe it."), but now I'm a true believer.

Can't remember the exact place in the film [In reply to] Can't Post

In the Aragorn/Arwen/Boromir scene in the chamber I believe. Like you I hadn't seen it until someone pointed it out to me on a previous thread that I made about Gil-galad.

Turns out I have a very bad memory! [In reply to] Can't Post

As I responded in that thread too. Blush

Here's the screencap. Aeglos is behind Boromir.

*Must remember that I *do* know Aeglos can be seen*

To be honest Daniel.. [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't remember many of the posts that I've made or the threads that I've subsequently contributed to (for good or for evil...)Evil. Considering that your post count trumps mine many times over, I'm hardly surprised that you don't remember them all!Wink

Gollum's Reaction to.... [In reply to] Can't Post

when Frodo tells Gollum "I've got to destroy it smeagol, for both our sakes" they cut to Gollum and he has this horrified look on his face which then turns to anger and it was at that moment I realized that Gollum did not know that Frodo intended to destroy the Ring I can't believe I never realized it before I guess I'm slow

You can see it better there than when Gilly is wielding it in the prologue! [In reply to] Can't Post

Kind-of weird that it's just propped up carelessly against the wall, however. Maybe Boromir was playing around with it and slaying imaginary Orcs earlier?

I just realized [In reply to] Can't Post

that Frodo and Sam planned all along to spring on Gollum when he attacked. In the previous scene, Frodo says "We're not alone." Since that was during the day and Gollum came at night, I missed the continuity. Only a few days ago watching TTT again did I notice that Frodo and Sam reacted at precisely the same time. I always thought that as Gollum closed in, his voice was loud enough to wake them up.
