Nostalgic moments Can't Post

In Vlog 9 I noticed Gollum looking towards the ground and I thought about something: will we get some moments that really,really remind us about LotR. Like Gollum talking to Smeagol in the water. Thorin with Aragorn stunts. And what else do you people think we will see in the movie that will be similair to a scene from LotR?

Over the Misty Mountains. Bilbo alone looking at the ring. The recurring music themes. [In reply to] Can't Post

Just to name a few off the top of my head.

The scenery will be the tie. [In reply to] Can't Post

Hobbiton, Rivendell and the Misty Mountains will bring the familiarity to each third of the film, although we'll see a bit of a different side so as to keep it fresh.

I am sure at some point they'll see Weathertop in the distance as they pass through the Lonelands. We'll get more of Bree -- we really got very little in FotR.

As far as characters go, I suspect we'll see Gandalf's playfulness in Hobbiton once more. We'll see his wise counsel off to the side to a Hobbit as they journey. And he gets some good action, too -- although nothing quite so much as falling into nothingness to fight the Balrog.

As far as scenes, I suspect the Warg-riders scene will feel a lot like TTT. There's only so much you can do with that concept. This time, the heroes may not be on horseback, and certainly won't be bestride war horses.

Who knows? [In reply to] Can't Post


"'Ai! ai!' wailed Legolas. 'A Balrog! A Balrog is come!'
Gimli stared with wide eyes. 'Durin's Bane!' he cried, and letting his axe fall he covered his face.
'A Balrog,' muttered Gandalf. 'Now I understand. What an evil fortune! And I am already weary.''

A great nod to Pippin's song from ROTK.
