Premieres and Press coverage. I've tried to place them in the right city, but from some pics I just honestly don't know. Because I run a Sean Bean website he's on all those pics. My apologies for that. Some small pics, some big. Click for full size

In an effort to catch up on the parts of the film that haven't been discussed yet -- and to show that you can always post about anything at any time regardless of the monthly themes (*g*) -- I grabbed a few caps and some favorite lines from the first four scenes of Fellowship (originally part of the October 09 themes).

Prologue: One Ring to Rule Them All

The world is changed.
I feel it in the water.
I feel it in the Earth.
I smell it in the air.
Much that once was is lost. For none now live who remember it.

I'm sure many will disagree, but I love the prologue, in no small way because it's Cate's glorious and powerful voice, the amazing control she has over it. I think it's a great introduction to the story. But mostly I love it for the language; some of my favorite lines come from this scene.

History became legend, legend became myth, and for two and a half thousand years, the Ring passed out of all knowledge.

Darkness crept back into the forest of the world. Rumor grew of a shadow in the east, whispers of a nameless fear, and the Ring of Power perceived.

Concerning Hobbits / The Shire / Very Old Friends

I find myself smiling throughout so many of the scenes in the Shire. There's such a lovely quality to them, to the idyllic landscape, to the hobbits themselves. And the Shire music, including the band at Bilbo's party, never fails to lift me, place me on those rolling hills with a gentle breeze on the air.

But where our hearts truly lie is in peace and quiet and good tilled earth.

I love how the characters are introduced in these scenes. Gandalf's relationship with both Frodo and Bilbo is played out so well. And I think that the idea that the ring has begun to have some effect on Bilbo is portrayed nicely. Having it all end with the two old friends sitting out in the garden smoking their pipes is just beautiful.

I really can't say anything about this scene. Not because I don't love it; quite the contrary. You're going to think I'm an overemotional sap but just reading the transcript made me cry and trying to grab a few caps and hunt down a clip was just a bit much. So we'll just let the scene speak for itself. Please discuss, critique, laugh at my super sentimental self (*g*), whatever inspires.

Home is behind the world ahead
And there are many paths to tread
Through shadow to the edge of night
Until the stars are all alight
Mist and shadow, cloud and shade
All shall fade
All shall fade

All the seeds Gollum has been planting finally come to painful fruition in this scene and it kills me every time. Or to be super accurate Sam kills me every time. Such frustration, rage, desperation and anguish. While it may not be the first time I had tears in my eyes watching this movie, I think it was the first time they started to fall.

What to say about this scene? )

There is nothing I don't love about this scene. To start with the purely superficial, I could look at Viggo and Miranda for days and not get bored. As Philippa says in the commentary: this is a "spunky Aragorn" scene and I highly approve! :-)

In this scene we're introduced to one of the characters that has a huge impact on the Fellowship. The leader of Saruman's Uruk-hai, bred for one purpose and I think leaves an enormous impression on all who see the films.

The trees are strong, my Lord. Their roots go deep.

Rip them all down!

This is one of the first clips I found online after my obsession took hold. It was at Bag End Inn, which unfortunately is no more; it was such a great site. Three hobbits and an elf taking part in a bathtub race.

Am looking for somewhere to share a couple of photos taken at the Toronto International Film Festival yesterday, and this seemed like a good place. :D
