Strong scene. [In reply to] Can't Post

Technically well done. I actually had an online conversation with somebody when it was time for RotK oscar consideration where they said there wasn't much CGI in RotK. Of course that meant the CGI was so good they didn't even realize they were watching CGI. Of course they knew about Gollum, but it actually didn't jump to the front of their mind when they though RotK CHI. (I know this is TTT, but the point still holds I think)

Serkis I think always did an excellent job, this scene included. Of course it is not always easy to know where Andy ends and the CGI begins.

Composition. There probably is something there, but I'm not smart enough to figure it out. Possibly contrasting the hopeful Smeagol with the foreboding mountains in the distance.

Has Gollumn reverted to Smeagol, is he sincere? I do believe he is sincere. Smeagol is an addict of sorts, and he is getting help for the first time. He can see the light of what he once was for the first time in hundreds of years. He is having a good day. Gollum is being kept at bay.

But sadly, we know that the nature of this addiction is such that the hope can only be temporary.
