The Hurry [In reply to] Can't Post

But they have to be in a hurry.. PJ shows that well
In the first movie they are just on the move.. there is a little "we are going on a summer camp" feeling
UNTIL they reach Elf town and Elrond reads the map telling them they have (!) to hurry, as the lock will only be visual with the last (moon) light.
From than on they are no longer on a slow quest .. they are in a hurry and that is shown perfectly in DOS
It has notthing to do with Critics on the first movie. The movie becomes the rolercoaster that it is.. the stressy atmo sets in because they are in a hurry
P.J. does a great thing bringing that to us. This whole movie is soo much more than you think at first.
Everything has a function. and it works fantasticly .

That is by the way also the reason why the tempo changes as soon as they are in.
The need to hurry is gone and so the movie allows us to feel that too
It is not only the things that are IN the movie that matter in the whole story
It is the way P.J. is able to make us feel while we watch it. Perfect
