Re: Beautiful, beautiful screencaps, and what writing!!

Wow, Mary! How'd you know to come here? Jan? That's great--but did you get to see the previous caps and essay ("Emyn Muil Pt. 2-b")? I'm guessing *that's* what she was pointing you to. She hasn't even seen this post yet.

I'll have to email my reply to you, since I know you won't be getting a reply notice. But just for the record, thanks so much for the passionate, thoughtful reply.

That is an excellent point how the mercy towards Gollum, someone Frodo knows is his enemy, and with evil intentions towards him, points towards the mercy he will show to Saruman. He does not look at either through rose-coloured glasses, yet he sees that they should not be killed out of hand, simply because they are dangerous and ill-intentioned and might do something to him. Really, this sequence, and especially the part that follows (those caps will be in the next post) are the closest the films come to showing what Frodo's mercy to Saruman might have looked like. Again, thanks so much for putting the idea out there.

And I'm so glad you finally saw the Francesco del Cairo's St. Sebastian manip and entry. Did you see the poem that went with it? It's FANTASTIC. Jan outdid herself on that one. I just am not sure whether you opened the link that just shows the images, or the one that shows links to the LJ entries that present them. Only those have discussions and poems, if any.
