Oh wow: absolutely stunning screencaps, Mechtild.

This whole sequence broke my heart, in a good way. It also helped me forgive PJ some of the heresies he committed!!

I'm glad that here we see Frodo comforting Sam. He also looks, here, as mature as Sam. Poor Sam. How exhausted and grief-stricken he looks. But it's Frodo comforting HIM. Frodo, clearly so relieved now that the dreadful burden of the Ring has gone. For a few moments, that sheer relief shuts out the despair of their situation - that they are doomed to die a fiery death on the slopes of Mount Doom.

It is just sublimely beautiful ... the depth of devotion and love between the two hobbits, as they try to shut out their impending death.

Beautifully noted, Pearl.

*Sobs with you. Loudly-er*

Yes, this scene makes up for very, very much. But, really, if we can let go of the trilogy's downfalls, there was so much that was wonderful and sublime and gut -and-bone true in them, I still don't know how they can be surpassed as film story-telling at a very high level.

I saw a thread, browsing TORc for the first time in months, started by a poster remarking that watching the films was a bore and a trial to him now. Well, I do not share that view, although I have been refraining for months from any re-watching, since I really have watched all of the films A LOT.
